We should finish the 168 mile section of Highway 6 between Tonopah and Ely in Nevada tomorrow, which will come as a great relief.
In desert sections like this, where it is roasting hot, the car waits for us every 5 miles throughout the day, so that we can get food and drink, examine our feet and moan a bit.
Here's a short clip of us arriving at the vehicle. (I know it doesn't sound very exciting, but that's what a week in the desert does for you). Look how far that road stretches back into the distance.
