That explains the mileage.  I'd like to get a GPS for my bike, but first I
need to find the time to take a trip ;-)

GPS shows the driving average as 78 MPH.  We tried to hold about 90 MPH most
of the time.  The lower average on the GPS includes going thru small towns
on US 50 and following a Nevada High Patrol Car thru the twisties down into
Eureka Nevada.
