   In 1999 I took a 19 day Road Trip across many of the western states.

 It  began on July 31st in DuPage County Illinois.
 Traveling west on  I-80,  I  drove through the following states
Hi !  : >)   Iowa -Nebraska - Wyoming-Utah

+ = Brightened 5/15/'06

^ = Brightened 5/20/'06

* = Brightened 6/26/'06

   Some city's I traveled through are : Des Moines, Omaha, Lincoln, Grand Island, North Platte, Cheyenne, Laramie, Rock Springs, Salt Lake City, Elko, & Winnemucca.  My goal was to reach Gerlach Nevada. In Winnemucca I got off  I-80 and began to drive straight west on Jungo Rd. This was a big mistake!
 It was an unpaved dirt & gravel road that was verry rough and led me out to an extremely remote area of the state. It was a 96 mile drive along the southern edge of the Black Rock Desert that took 6 hours. During the last 4 hours i saw only 2 (two) other cars. There was no one anywhere.
Gerlach Nev. at 2:30 pm on  Wednesday August 4th was almost a ghost town. The post office hours are 10am-1pm. I was to stay overnight back in Elko , which was 250 miles back east. I choose to drive on Pavement from that point forward. Therefore I had to drive south on Rte.447 about 75 miles to reach I-80  near Wadsworth . Then There was the long drive north east to Elko.It was a 14 hour day ! On the 5th of August I traveled east from Elko to Salt Lake City. On the 6th I drove south on I-15 from S.L.C. through Utah to Page Arizona.

Highlights of the first half are : A visit to the Bonneville Salt Flats in N.W. Utah ,   A drive along the southern edge of The Black Rock Desert  in  remote N.W. Nevada , &  A stop at the Glen  Canyon  Dam  in Page  Arizona.
  I  reached Tucson  Arizona at 5pm on August 7th.
