Out of California and into Nevada

We left Corning, Ca this morning enroute to Fallon, Nv. After leaving the armpit of Northern, Ca (Corning - Orland - Chico) we meandered thru the countryside on county roads and headed towards Grass Valley, Ca. Although the road was narrow, twisty and ups and downs, it was a beautiful drive until the time we merged onto I80. What a piece of garbage that highway is. It looks like there are earthquake fault lines running down the middle of the highway and rutty to boot. Driving it was a handful. Nevada was a welcome sight as the road was wonderful - except for 18 miles of road construction and traffic running on a narrow single lane with the cones on one side and a Jersey barrier on the other side. We are spending the night in Fallon, Nv at the Fallon RV Park. Not a place for long term stays, but adequate for overnighters. Depending on the thunderstorm activity tomorrow, we may only go as far as Hawthorne or on to Beatty. Stay tuned.
