SR-140 between Klamath Falls, OR and it's junction with US-95 north of Winnemucca, NV is a good two-lane road.

There are few climbs of note with the exception of the Doherty Slide just before getting into Nevada; however, it's a short section of road.

Be sure to fill up with fuel in Lakeview since fuel will be scarce, if not non-existent, between there and Winnemucca.

Ten miles west of Lakeview is one of our favorite campgrounds, Junipers Reservour RV Resort.(Check it out at RVparksreview.com) Then it's 140 miles to the next fuel!!!. Just into Nevada is the National Antepole Reserve with lots of wild donkeys. It's a great ride.

Charles Sheldon National Antelope Refuge which is part of the larger Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge (although "antelope" is a misnomer since it is Pronghorn that are in the Refuge...although related, Pronghorn and true antelope belong to two separate Families).

This is one of our favorite areas of Nevada. We've always camped at the Virgin Valley Campground...no hookups, but there is a hot spring where you can soak and take showers. There are also several opal mines around, some of which you can dig for your own opals...Royal Peacock has RV spaces with electrical hookups.

Here's a nice PBS write-up of the area: http://www.knpb.org/WildNevada/Trip405.asp
