    A couple Aprils ago it took me 3 days to cross Nevada on Hwy50 -- camped on a couple of the passes. There is usually dirt roads leaving off of them to camp on. Great road for slow travelers!

    Have a great trip, Dave!

    Take a spare tire.
    Heck, take two spare tires.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Unless Dave plans on detouring to the White Mountains, the roads are all paved.

    My boys and I drove 2500 miles earlier in the year in southern Chile, a far majority of that on 'interesting' gravel/dirt roads. We got a flat on our first day on gravel roads, only to find the rental (small van -- a Chevy Spin) had one of those small emergency tires as a spare. Fortunately we were close to Torres del Paine National Park headquarters and the maintenance fellow there fixed the flat for us. Hard to believe we had no other flats.

    So one spare is all that is needed -- but make sure it is a real tire and wheel!

    Rainbow Canyon south of Caliente NV is worth exploring. Pioche has some interesting architecture including the 'million dollar courthouse'.

    Nice campground there too -- showers!

    If you have a rough-road vehicle, Road 317 through Elgin looks very interesting.

    Warning, I have not been on Road 317 -- so get more info on it if you think you'd head that way.
