The ride up to Tahoe (431) is fun when traffic is light though, but it gets COLD going over the pass at Mt. Rose... or at least it was when I was there a few months ago before coming up to Oregon for work. Then more construction in Incline Village (one lane stuff again). And of course, the McCarran loop around Reno is under construction too. So basically, you can't get anywhere in a reasonable amount of time there, especially since you can't legally lane split.
Oh yeah, it gets cold in the morning going over the pass.
Anyhow, this is good info, sounds like he didn't miss much then. Nice to see he is pushing the envelope riding solo so the rest of us cube-dwellers can live vicariously.
