Route from Mammoth mountain, CA to Boulder, CO

Driving a 39' DP with toad from Mammoth to Boulderin Sept. My first concerns are the roads thru Nevada. The roads seem to be 2-lane hwy's. Route 6 is the most direct route. There is an option of hwy 93 for the last part into Utah. I70 over to Denver. That is another concern.

Are my concerns warranted? How are the hwys across Nevada? Vail pass? Other suggestions.

Lots of different ways to go but I guess the question you need to ask yourself is " which route is best if I broke down ?" Granted having a tow car means self rescue/escape but sometimes especially in the deserts staying on more traveled routes is better even if it adds more miles.The always nice Mammoth summer weather is spoiling you right now !

I 70 is a big mountain you will be climbing and then going down. If you have never driven in mountains then make sure you know your max temps on your engine and tranny. Now how to use your exhaust brake brake too. You will hit 11,000 feet at the tunnel.

Personally I would take the easy drive. Take the 395 South to the 58 to the 15 and head toward Las Vegas. It is major highway all the way.
