Day 10 - June 11, 2012
Winnemucca, NV to Sonoma, CA
379.7 miles

I was up at 0400 and made a couple of comments to some of the pictures my missus posted for me on facebook. By the time the bike was packed, fueled up and I got organized it was 0600 when I got on the road headed west again. It was downright cold, so I put on all my gear and it was a comfortable although somewhat boring ride through western Nevada on I-80.

I spent a little time in Truckee, CA and it was a perfect stop to get warmed up. It didnít take a lot of time before I had to pull over and pull off all the cold weather gear as I was roasting by 0900. Hopefully I will not have to ride this route again as the freeway through Sparks/Reno is twisty, crowded and under renovation.

I finally made it to my destination in Sonoma, CA around 1420. After a couple of detours, I had ridden 379.7 miles today; 3311 thus far on the adventure. I thought I was going to cut back on the mileage, but I have a place to stay with a long lost relative, so hopefully I can take a day or two and give the geezer glide a rest; I sure need one.
