We Gassed in Hawthorne, Hadley, and Pioche. The stretch between Hadley and Pioche is LONG. Like 210 map miles and 240 actual after we did some backtracking. There are ranches along the way, you could probably bums some gas if you needed.

A 950E/ADV would be no problem. A 12GS would require some skillz in a couple places.
THanks for the good insight!

Gas in Lockes?

Hey anyone know if there's gas in Lockes, NV?

My map shows "Blackrock station." I've tried searching for it, but no luck. All I get is ghost town info.

To my knowledge there is no gas on 6 between Ely and Tonopah.

I sent you a PM.

Well, I'm going to send it when I'm done here.

There was. Also Lund and/or Preston.

Someone posted a track from Tonopah to Ely and got gas at Lockes but I can't find it now.

See my Nevada Statewide Motorized Trail System on GPSXchange.com

I am going later this month.

Well, there is a gas pump there anyway. A google search doesn't turn up any information.

Thanks for looking. I tried to find a number for a station in Mina - no luck. There's one with a disconnected number, but that's all.

I did talk to a woman at a station in Hadley tho, so we're set I think.

Drove through Mina on Friday, all is the same. The old station on South end is closed but one near center is open. Also great Malt/Burger stand. I guess I should try to get phone numbers and add to wayponts on my SMTS file.

thanks again. I'm glad you made lots of waypoints, cause I couldn't see your track. I was connecting the dots.

You guys know about this? A friend asked me to check online for Utah maps and this is what I found was most useful for him.

Utah Topo Maps: http://www.miscjunk.org/mj/mp_uttopo.html

Introduction
The purpose of this project is to create electronic topo maps for the state of Utah for Garmin GPS units with mapping capability. This is an on-going project with additional updates performed as time and resources allow.

Features
The mapset is created from freely available GIS data and has the following data layers:
- Interstates, highways, railroads, county, local and forest roads
- High resolution water data (lakes, rivers and streams)
- Land use, metro areas
- Elevation contours (40ft intervals)
- Points of interest (summits, mines, falls, dams, cemeteries, towers, populated places, etc.)

NEW! Incremental updates are available, the following features are being worked on:
- Better representation of land status data with custom styles
- Defined 4wd trails and POIs
- Custom styles for unpaved roads, 4wd trails
- Update of high resolution water data (streams)
- Update of POIs
- Add detailed data for National Parks

Also available:
Arizona
Colorado
Florida
Hawaii
Idaho
Mississippi
Montana
Nevada
New Mexico
Utah
Wyoming
