Hawthorne hosts an Army Depot there now since 1978. The Navy had it in the early 30's to make bombs after an explosion in New Jersey killed 50 people they decided to move the bomb making operation to a place with a lessor population so Hawthorne NV (pop 200) was chosen.
Ken offered to take me to the Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah for the night, but I took a raincheck as I wasn't feeling that great. But I will take him up on that soon!!
Tomorrow we'll probably go to Carson City and look for our new floor for the livingroom. We think we know what we want but will look a bit just so we don't pick the first one we see..
