began on July 31st in DuPage County Illinois.
Traveling west on I-80, I drove through the following states
+ = Brightened 5/15/'06
^ = Brightened 5/20/'06
= Brightened 6/26/'06
city's I traveled through are :
Lincoln, Grand Island, North Platte, Cheyenne, Laramie, Rock Springs, Salt
Lake City, Elko, & Winnemucca. My
goal was to reach Gerlach
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.
On Friday August 13 I began the drive home driving through the following states:
