I'm not sure I'll attend the 2013 Rally in Salem. But if I do, it'll involve riding to & from the East Coast.

That being said, my route will involve crossing Nevada, either coming or going.

I'm currently considering crossing (eastbound) Nevada from Lee Vining, over to Tonopah, then Caliente, Panaca, and Cedar City, UT.

Being this will involve the summer desert heat, is this route OK, or should I be looking at crossing farther north?

Comments appreciated, expected, ... and anticipated!
