Day 33. To the A&M Reservoir. Just under 70 miles today. The Great Basin. About 130 miles across a sage brush desert. Not even FedEx or Ups Trucks, which are ubiquitous on these roads, venture here. We saw a few hunters, one skinning an Antelope in the back of a truck. and a couple of oil trucks taking oil from the two oil depots we passed, with the oil wells out here. We were glad to have Harry and Jon to pull us part of the way to through the wind. We finally turned the corner and had a good tailwind, although bumpy, washboard road, to the remote campsite at the reservoir. When we arrived, our friends were chatting with a couple, hikers, who gave each of us a banana, water, and a worthers candy. Antelope came to the water early evening. Beautiful sunset!
