Re: Vegas run

Jessica and I just did Vegas to Sacramento via Vegas, Pahrump, Death Valley, Lone Pine and Tioga Pass. We did a stay over in Death Valley and had a great time.

Okay, here’s my 2˘ worth – my personal favorite route into southern Nevada:
Take US395 south to CA168 just north of Big Pine. Go east on 168 to Oasis and pick up CA266, which becomes NV266. 266 takes you to US95 at Lida Junction. You’ll be a few miles north of Beatty, which has gas, a few motels and a couple small casino/hotels.

Highways 168 and 266 are empty, other than an occasional local. Nice twisties, and some straights. Not as hot as Death Valley. There’s one section near Westgard pass where the highway narrows to one-lane and passes through a steep canyon. Very cool ride IMHO. But do slow down. Because, even though no one else would have been through there in the last hour, if your luck is like mine, that’s when one lone rancher in his pick-up might be coming the other way.

Enjoy.

On the road to wreck, and ruin -— but making great time.
