Don't think I will move here!

Left Salt Lake this morning in a thunder and rain storm. Travelled West on the I-80 to come visit the Bonneville Salt Flats where they do speed racing. The flats are 80 feet wide and 10 miles long. Sadly with all the grey clouds I don't think they looked as spectacular as they might have when they have blue skies and are more white in colour, but impressive none the less.

I booked in overnight to a motel as not very camping friendly here and my back probably would still appreciate the comfort of a bed. I thought that there might be more to see and do around the area but Wendover is a bit of a hole really. It has the state line of Utah and Nevada running through the middle of it and is basically a casino town. Not very attractive. The only selling point is that it seems to attract top end acts to play at the concert hall. I was very tempted to buy tickets for The 4 Tops, Joan Jet and the Blackhearts, The Chippendales and Alice Cooper, but sadly will be moving on again tomorrow.

They obviously do not eat any proper food here as I could only find fast food chains, none of which are any good for me, so have had corn tortillas with peanut butter and honey for my tea. Yumm. The one food shop of sorts that I did find was as well stocked as a garage forecourt on January 2nd, and managed by an unknown gender of human that had less charisma than the sole of my foot.

I took loads of photos of stuff but blogger does not seem to want to load them at the moment, so another time.
