i'm not sure that highway 21, south/east of Baker shouldn't be called the loneliest highway in America. when we travelled on it last year, there where more sleeping cows in the ditch than there where cars on the road. when it came time for a nature break, there was no need to find a place to pull over, we just stopped in the middle of the roadRight said Fred. Great Basin is one of many great places to visit in our great state. I'm just a couple hours north of great basin and visit as often as I can. A ride on HWY 50. America's loneliest road brings you to Many of those locations. Great Basin, Lehman Caves, Historic towns like Ely, Eureka, and Austin, and Hickson Petroglyph Rec. Area. Theres an Ichthyosaurus there. Or as the kids call it "ickysore". And up north where I'm at theres the California trail and pony express routes. Great topic Fred.
....And as for the forgotten Winchester, some poor bastard went and left behind the greatest weapon ever smithed by a man. My personal favorite.
... And yes, Winchester '73 and Shane, two of the best westerns ever, but I usually add McClintock if I want a western and a laugh.
Yep. You can do that in 80% of the state. Sure is nice when you have it all to yourself it seems.i'm not sure that highway 21, south/east of Baker shouldn't be called the loneliest highway in America. when we travelled on it last year, there where more sleeping cows in the ditch than there where cars on the road. when it came time for a nature break, there was no need to find a place to pull over, we just stopped in the middle of the road View attachment 183260
here are some pics of the rack. i welded 1" flat bar across the top as i didn't like the way the rack bent when the bike was loaded. then i extended the ramp for easier loading. i placed some chain from either side of the rack to the truck's tow hooks and they take most of the weight. 3 of my tie downs are attached to the truck bumper and that takes all the movement out of the bike, it is rock solidHey grewen, might I ask what type of carrier are you using in the front of your truck?
i'll make a note for the trip back home. afraid Wells is just a fuel stop on the way down. is the campground at Angel lake big enough for a travel trailer? google maps makes ruby lake look like there is no water left in it, is it dry?Greg, if you're heading down 93. Stop in Wells, NV and take a ride up to Angel Lake. It's only about a 15-20 mile ride but its a nice one. Paved, but a shoulder hugger. Especially near the top of the mountain where it switcbacks a few times.
Further down the Hwy from Wells, There's Ruby Valley/Ruby Lake, the Great Basin Brewing Co., and Spruce Mtn. If you have the time they're all good stops. Then of course Ely, and on up to Baker.
