Our fab lab camp is settled behind the artic zone at 4E. Different people is coming over to know the lab, to make anything...
We entered Nevada at today´s noon. A little stop to take some salt samples to be used on energy projects, maybe they can change many things in the future. The clocks had to be changed, now is one hour less. We got a pullover at the highway, the plice man did not asked Amy for her license, he looked more interested in the trailer and about what we are doing here. The man just indicated us the way to Burning Man.
We have crossed Salt Lake City in the way to Nevada
After an all night long drive we just passed Buford, a Town village with total population of...1. Coffe and the roads continue through the 80th, west direction.
It has been difficult get connected to the internet. Short stops. We are looking for a USPS office at Point of Rocks, a trailer-town. Finally we got it at Rock Springs.
