Trip to Fallon Nevada

I am going to be traveling to Fallon by way of Wyoming and was wondering if anyone has some experience traveling I-80 from Cheyenne across to Fallon. Going to be pulling a 30ft TT with a 17 Ram 1500. Or is there maybe another route I may want to consider.

I've driven a lot of that route - my advice would be to plan your fuel stops as it can be a long way to the next gas.

We're from Nevada! I-80 is a great road. No problems but it does have a couple good hills. You just take 1-80 across Wyoming, Utah and then Nevada. You will then take Hwy 95 south right in to Fallon. Enjoy your trip!

If you want an interesting side trip once you get to Fallon, drive 47 miles east on RT-50 to Middlegate Station. Itís a former stage coach and pony express stop. They have a bar that serves pretty good burgers, $ bills stapled to the ceiling and an eclectic clientele. We go off road riding out their. Lots of trails, BLM land and of course Sand Mountain.

Another route would be taking Alt 93 from Wendover south to Ely then east on 50 to Fallon. You'll be following along most of the Lincoln Hwy expect for a little piece west of Laramie. Once you hit Ely you'll be on the Loneliest Road in America till you hit Fallon. I would prefer to drive this route but I don't know how you're TT and TV will handle the many mountain ranges along this route in NV.

We've traveled from OR to WV and back nearly every year since the late '70s. We usually run it going one way or the other. For us it is the easiest and fastest, but it can have some of the problems already noted.

The only hill I was ever concerned about was 10 miles or so of 80 going down into SLC (from east). The other hills are there, as noted, but were never a problem for us. The hill going down to Laramie from the Lincoln Statue rest area (?) is a little steep also.

SLC is the only town that is a little difficult to drive through, especially during rush hour traffic. A GPS is handy there, but we've driven through it many times without one.

Best of luck.

Steve
