You can go to Google Maps and follow the route from Boise to Winnemucca via Street View. Looks like a lot of flat puncuated with vast expanses of nothing.

Highway 95

Good road. Miles of nothing. Watch it in Jordan Valley, Ore. Big time speed trap!!!

We went that several yrs ago. The only thing that I remember is what you see after you get a mile or two into the country is what you see the rest of the way.

Thanks for the replies. It looks like the shortest way to get to Winnemucca to pick up I-80.

Acker1,
I live in Boise and have driven that road many times with our 1995 34 ft Vectra towing a Kia. Shortly after leaving Marshing you will have a long hill to climb but then it is an easy drive. You can gas in Jordan Valley, OR then the next gas spot is MCDermitt, NV and then a few more small stops after that. Watch for deer around Jordan Valley, they are all over the place. When entering OR watch your speed, if you push it you WILL GET STOPPED, the sheriff in that area is well known. The speed limit is 55 mph and I usually do 60 without problems, most of that area is open range. You will have a steep decent into the town of Rome, OR (Rome is a 4 building town with a restaurant). It's actually beautiful country, you just have to like the high desert but there is absoutley NOTHING between Jordan Valley and McDermitt. Enjoy the trip.
Ron

I moved to Boise from SF Bay Area in the '70's. It's amazing that Jordan Valley is still an operating speed trap. As I recall, it was worse west bound than east bound because you're coming down the hill and the speed limit drops from 55 to 45 to 35 over a very short span of road and the LEO sits there with a radar gun. He cited my mother and she got so mad she was probably lucky not to see the inside of the JV jail!
