There are ten stations from the Camp Floyd Station to the Fish Springs Station, Twain mentions three and only one by name, Camp Floyd. He remarks that the only stop was at a station in the middle of the alkali desert. A station where the water was transported in by wagon. This was the Dugway Station, the eighth station on this stretch of his journey. The station locations have been plotted in Google Maps and exported to Google Earth and a tour produced for inclusion in the video.
