Duckwater: Our first Home was Small
The other thing that happened that first week is I made a trip to Elko in my Escort. This was over the back roads, which were very rough getting to Eureka. On the way back is punctured the gas tank. If it hadn't been for Butch I would have been sunk, because even though I made it to there house, I really didn't know what to do from there. We saved enough gas, and then stopped the leak with soap and gum. I was able to get it to Ely for repair.
When we moved into that first house, there was a radio. It wasn't until later that we purchased a t.v. The radio picked a t.v. station however, so we listened to t.v.
Our first dog was Moriah, after the wind. He did not survive Duckwater as he got in the habit of chasing sheep, and a local rancher took care of him.
