There's nothing like a desert road trip in the fall, when the heat of summer starts to slack off and the sky gets a little more interesting. I grabbed the keys to our 2012 Honda CR-V and joined 10 of my friends for a few days of hiking and exploring near Tonopah, Nevada and the ET Highway, some 405 miles away from home base.

Four of us are travelling in the CR-V, and since we're not staying in the same hotel twice we're toting around our luggage and hiking gear the whole way. The Oregon road trip I took some weeks back left little doubt that the CR-V would have no trouble on this trip.

I didn't get much sleep before we headed out, so the drive up here left me a little tired and gaunt. I should be feeling better after I down a couple of cervezas and get a good night's rest.
