How's Powerline up from the Alkali springs up to Tonopah? You're probably eager for me to actually leave (Wednesday!) so I can quit asking you questions.

Hmm...maybe we'll just go from 360, to 6, to 264 to Dyer to get gas, then across to Silver Peak, to Alkali, then just head south on 95, skipping Tonopah entirely. Hmm...
Coyote is county haul road for semis. Yes that is Dual Sport dog-leg, stay on Coyote right into Silver Peak. Also steep downhill single track into old Blair train station.

Never been on that Pwr Line rd. I never go across a valley if there is route thru hills.

Yes no real reason to go to Tonopah if you go to Dyer for gas. HOWEVER, don't follow my route clear to Coyote. When you come out of Mc Afee cyn to a graded rd, turn right not left and follow it S/E then N/E around to Silver Peak.
