Feb 7, 2017 - International Car Forest

We visited a most unusual “forest” of cars today. While searching for the top ten things to see and do in this area, I found the International Car Forest in Goldfield, Nevada. It was only about 20 miles away, we decided to go for it. :-) It reminded me of the Cadillac Ranch in Texas except for the nice artist drawing on these. The one in Texas has spray cans everywhere and everyone paints on them, with or without any talent. This one is the dream project of two Nevada artist, Chad Sorg and Mark Rippie. They put a lot of time into it and...

Oct 17, 2008 - Goldfield, Nevada

From Carson City we continued south towards Death Valley gong in out out of Nevada and California along the route. There were a few passes ranging up to 6,000ft (2000m) but no problem. The coach runs like a champ since we had the turbo fixed. Landscape was amazing, Creeks, mountains, desert, winding roads, snow and lakes. everything you can imaging. Temperatures still in the 90's but cooling down at night. Fuel Management becomes an issue here. No gas stations for hundred of miles or not suitable for us. Restaurants seem to be rare as...
