Day 30: Ely, Nevada to Elko, Nevada

We hit the road before eight o'clock and take Hwy 93 towards Whitehorse Pass. We get our first view of Bonneville Salt Flats - like a wonder of the world. Into Wendover we stop for gas and coffee at Pilot Casino. Out to the salt flats where we park close to the staging lanes - we blunder about mesmerised by the variety of vehicles. I chat to the Moon team about Dante Duce and what we can do to find out more about him.

We hook up with Rick Pearson and his car Flower of Scotland and ride down the course in the trailer truck as he faces the salt for the first time.
Mid-afternoon we head for Elko on I-80 - now at the Travelodge for two nights before heading back east.
