Our intention was to drive along Hwy 80 through Nevada to about Wells. That's about halfway through the state. However, we didn't feel like stopping for the night once we got to Wells, so we continued on, making it to the Utah/Nevada border at Wendover in the evening. There was a nice America's Best Shell station where long-haul truckers and RVers would stay over night. A Subway Sandwich shop was there too. What more would we need for a safe sleep-over?
This day's drive included my first drive of the truck while towing the trailer. The fairly level and straight, not very highly traveled Nevada highway was perfect for this practice. A good lesson Dan gave me was to "watch what the truckers are doing head of you", meaning, watch what they seem to be preparing for, and get ready to do the same.
