We loaded up the van with 10 people (all of us and our neighbor) and ALL of our stuff and headed down the trail. We stayed at Prospector's in Ely, Nevada. There Kevin got to watch the Boise Broncos play the Las Vegas Bowl on the big TV while most of the rest of us went for a swim. It was a nice pool--but the kind that you had to keep moving or you'd be shivering. I ended up greatly enjoying the hot tub; some of the older kids also got good use out of the exercise room. Then we headed down for a yummy meal with some HUGE portions.
