We took a selfie for proof of the stop but it's not that impressive a shot.
Oliver wanted to stop in Lovelock, Nevada, the home of the airport with the code LOL. Turns out we missed the airport, but we did get to stop in and check out the town a bit. We also picked up some supplies at a local dollar store. Because we were charging out of sequence to try to change our schedule, we ended up spending more time in than we wanted. Oh well, LOL!
The road from Ely to Salt Lake City, was one of the longest straightest, flatest, and most boringest stretches of highway along our journey. In fact, there were fatigue warnings posted along the highway. About the only thing of interest, were the remains of the airplane beacon system. I was able to point these out to Oliver and explain how they were used for cross country navigation.
