In Silver Peak I was mainly just in search of water, but bumped into a guy named Joe Dunn at the Chemetall Foote company when I walked in the front door of their office. He not only set me up with total refills of my two Camelbak bladders but topped off my bike for NO CHARGE! Thanks heaps Joe!

There's not much in Silver Peak but if you ever get into a pinch in the NV desert you could count on Joe to help you out. He's also a member of the SAR team for the area come to find out as he told me about the mex2can rider that needed hauled out of Argentite Canyon a few weeks prior.

Must be an interesting chap that lives here:

Started running into the race course outside of Goldfield...



Took a breather, had a microwave sandwich pocket thingie and a Mountain Dew...
