Day 9: Battle Mountain, NV

Italian GP not available as online streaming video anywhere I looked chiz, but Forza Ferrari and yar boo sucks to Lewis Hamilton, the silly.  Although the wrong Ferrari won.  Again.

Sunday in BM involves a certain amount of lifting of Heavy Things, including plywood, straw, big warning signs, smaller distance signs, sandbags, Larry Lem's new bike, etc. etc.  This year's best-kept secret was finally let out of the bag when Jonathan Woolrich turned up unexpected by anyone save moi.  And there was great rejoicing.  Earlier I had had to bite my tongue when Kim Nelson, from the Chamber of Commerce, had been in e-mail contact with Jonathan, but he couldn't make it this year and she sure hoped he would in 2011.  Here is a picture of the by-now-traditional Sunday er, tradition, viz. Larry Lem fettling his latest creation:

Also starring L-R on benches: Julius Makuch, Han van Vugt, Georgi Georgiev, plus the back of Mike Sova and Ellen van Vugt's leg.
Curious thing seen on the road: a cow.  The cattle are supposed to be on the opposite side of the fence from the road. so if it's still there tomorrow morning, there will be a roping contest.
