I will TANKUP... in Fernley and top off in Gerlach.
I show 78 miles from Fernely NV to Gerlach NV.... 1.5 hours as the Google flies......


The trip out to the black rock desert and sights should be around 125 miles(loop) like CivicJoe said.

If I leave here(Fernely NV) at 7 am Saturday morning then I can make a 9 am departure time from Gerlach NV( and gas up ).

Beds around 62 bucks for the night.

After seeing the pictures of your run to Death Valley , I really wanted to join this trip. Unfortunately, I already have stuff going on the same weekend as this trip. So bummed that I'm gonna miss another Chrishaynesusa adventure.

That is a good trip. I have done it several times. I typically drive through the night and camp on the playa the first night. Wake up in the morning and trip out on where you are. Depending on the year April can still be pretty wet. Remember if the Playa is wet stay off of it. That stuff will eat your truck, down to the doors

Don't think I have it in the cards to join you.
