Crazy Daisy Tour Day 31: Elko, NV - Wendover, UT - Elko, NV
Six weeks ago, when we tried to book a hotel for Speed Week we weren't that surprised that everything within a 100 miles of Bonneville was fully booked. With 345 vehicles registered, each with a crew of 5 or 6 people; add to that family and friends; then the spectators - it's not hard to explain why even the campgrounds are full. We stayed in Elko, NV and so clocked up 400 km just going back and forth from "The Salt".
We had a much better idea about how to make the most of it and stay hydrated in the 90F sun.
Even with the amazing array of vehicles that show up, our smart car Trudi still attracts some attention.
Daily distance: 400 km Fuel cost: $16
