We drove Rt 50 from Lassen Volcanic National Park to Reno. It was an incredible drive. Though it is called the Lonliest Highway in America, don't let the name scare you away. There was plenty of traffic to make you feel safe if you had something go wrong. There were also plenty of places to stop for gas an such, but there were long stretches, so do plan ahead. There were not any places to go to the bathroom along the road such as rest areas. So prepare for that too. Look out for Nevada historical markers. They are aplenty but there is little to no warning they are coming up. The landscape is by far the greatest treat and you get it all to yourself! So do stop and get out of the car and listen in a particularly isolated area. You'll hear silence between cars driving by. I had only ever heard silence like that at night.
