I am constantly asking for information while on this trip. I don’t want to make wrong turns, or doubt myself on the effort needed. Here is what happened when I had to climb the Virginia City hill. I asked at the visitor center and was told by the woman that it was 2 miles, the guy said 3, and the guy at the campground said 7. It turned out to be 2 1/2 to the top. The map I am using constantly gives alternate routes, and I have taken 3 of them so far. I usually ask first. All have been terrible choices. Because of that, I am taking on tomorrow’s hill directly. I will let you know how that turns out.
