Nevadan Note

I have to admit I was somewhat intimidated when I pulled Chiva and me into Nevada. Outside of Reno and Las Vegas, the state is predominately known for its inhospitable and remote deserts and backcountry and is the most mountainous state in the nation with 314 individual ranges. Water sources are few and far between and stretches of road are as long and lonely as they come. Nevada already has and will continue to physically and mentally punish Chiva and me like never before. Just like with any other new environment, the key is to quickly adapt to the new conditions. The state is home to endless adventure, natural beauty, and history, but we are going to have to work for it. Bring it on!
