I slept for 12 & 1/2 hours after Bodie and missed the traditional dinner at the Brideport Inn.

    : We will be hitting all the places I was to ill to see!

    : We left the Bay Area around 7:00 PM on Friday and pulled an all-nighter to. We arrived in Rhyolite around 6:00 AM on Saturday. After checking out the town we heaed back up 95 to Goldfield and Tonopah.

    : After Tonopah we headed through Benton to Bodie. We reached Bodie around 3:00 and were able to spend an hour or so there.

    : I was working on 1/2 hour of sleep, Texas Jess had about an hour and Ritz must've had at least 8 hours!!!

    : After Bodie we took the old road to Bridgeport and had dinner at the Bridgeport Inn. Jess and I crashed early due to our lack of sleep. I had that 1/2 hour sleep over a 38 hour period. I was determined to see the sights after missing them when I was ill during the Memorial Day Trip!!!Ritz had a tough time sleeping because he slept so much!!!

    : It was Ritz's 1st time on a Ghost Town Trip!!! I think he's Hooked!!!

    : Much to my dismay, we stopped in Tonopah to mainly check out the Mizpah and found it was closed! It is plastered with signs referring to a grand re-opening, but there was no date.

    : It shouldn't surprise me too much. It seems like every place in Tonopah was either closed or for sale!
