Awesome!!! This was the exact info I was hoping to find on this site. Yes I'm fully aware of Rt 6 and the desolation. My plan is to use tactics I use while climbing big walls. I do more climbing then riding so hence the reason for getting involved with this site. Needless to say I'm planning to bring a 3 gallon collapsable water jug. If the heat is really bad I'm considering riding at night (at least from Benton to Tonopah).
But I'll tell ya what really scares me... Is the drunk redneck driving from the Eastern Side of the Sierra to Tonopah.
