How about a cup of fresh-brewed coffee? The grinder at Boone Store likely stayed busy when coffee was available. Imagine waiting for a wagonload of supplies from Carson City or Minden, Nevada. Where the Virginia & Truckee rails ended, horse- or mule-drawn wagons freighted loads to Bodie. Today, you'll need to bring your own coffee, the nearest town with a restaurant or coffee shop is Bridgeport.
