I think I remember reading that Boring had a sister city relationship with Dull in Scotland.

We stayed in Mariposa two nights. The reason for stopping here was for the $6 bus service to Yosemite NP. The bus trip was about 90 minutes.

After Yosemite, the plan was to ride over Tioga pass and into Nevada. Tioga Pass is the highest road in California, 10,000ft asl. The road had opened after winter about a week earlier.

After a magnificently sunny day at Yosemite, the forecast for the following day was for rain in the hills, and 1-3 inches of snow at the pass. All other passes north of Yosemite were also forecasting snow or rain, so the best option was to the south. This meant riding 500km south to the I-15 interstate and running through Las Vegas to get to Utah.

The morning we managed to dodge the bit of rain that was about, but caught some wet roads through Fresno. Didn't stop and take many photos for the day. During the day the headset in Jo's helmet started to play up and became unusable. Might just be that she is sick of listening to me talking to her while she's riding. When we stopped for lunch I tried ringing a few dealers listed as Autocom dealers in USA, but the 2 or 3 that I rang had all stopped stocking Autocom products.













Spent the night in Ridgecrest, which is on the southern edge of Death Valley.

For tea we went to a diner. Jo ordered the vegetables on rice. The serving was quite typical of huge american servings. It's not unusal to see every second person leaving a restaurant with a takeaway container of leftovers.
