Today we'd be tourists. We'd made it back across the Great Basin, and we were in Wendover. Civilization -- showers, groceries, laundry, email, cell service, tourist attractions. We'd been pushing hard, and sitting down with the maps, reviewing the route, we realized there was no reason we couldn't sleep in, and take a breather.

Of course, it never works out that way. LDF & I were up early, and decided to hit the grocery store while Dave was recharging his batteries.

We passed this, statue,

which in silhouette looks disturbingly similar to Cristo Redentor

but in reality, is Wendover Will, the world's largest mechanical cowboy.

"I came into this game for the action, the excitement; go anywhere, travel light... get in, get out... wherever there's trouble, a man alone... Now they got the whole country sectioned off; you can't make a move without a form." --Robert De Niro as Archibald 'Harry' Tuttle in Brazil, 1985.
