Picking up my new Denali on Sunday and driving back to Vegas. Faster to take the 93 or just take the 15 and fly low? About 100 miles extra distance via 15. Anywhere to stop on the 93 to catch a few zzz on the way home Sunday night?
Pulled over a few years ago headed down to the SHOT doing triple digits....ticketed for 90 and for wasting fossil fuels...$75We like the "Jailhouse Motel/Casino" in Ely. Clean, reasonably priced, good restaurant and also dog friendly. 93 is a good hwy. Have seen elk on that road. Big animals, wouldn't want to hit one. SIL grew up in that area, says troopers up there will write you for more than 5-7 over posted speeds. Although, I will to 90-95 in the logical areas of the hwy.
Hmmmmmmm...I don't think I have ever traveled it by day. Always packing though. No Alien abductions yet.Hit an elk with motorhome last late September and did lots of damage under coach...ripped brake cans off rear end...tow into Wells and overnight stay and 1000.00 later back on road. So here is my new rules of engagement...in motorhome at night...I will go 15 and suffer the time loss...but during day is fine. Seriously, the cop that sat with wife and I waiting for wrecker convinced me not to travel that lonely dark stretch at night anymore...in fact his stories were horrifying..
Speed limit is 80 from Boise to Twin Falls....they'll pop ya for 82. Twin going into Jackpot...take the truck route just after you cross the Perine bridge which goes right by Costco. Take your time 5mph over is all I do anymore until I am past Jackpot. Careful driving into and leaving Jackpot. Once outside of Jackpot stick to 75mph until you hit Wells. The speed limit in Wells is 68 because you don't want to eat any hooker snatch at 69.Thanks for the tips, was looking for some guidance on how heavy a foot I can have out that way. Will be running the Valentine1 and obey the local town speeds, learned that through searchlight lol. Plane gets in to Boise at 230 hoping to be out of the dealer by 4 and in LV about 3 am give or take.
