Pendleton, OR to Jackpot, NV

We put in over 400 miles today after leaving Pendleton, OR at about 9:00am this morning.  We changed time zones to Mountain Time in southern Oregon.  We stopped for lunch at the rest area about 1.5 miles into Idaho and stopped again at mile 29 to take on fuel.  This was pretty much my view for the day….boring!


We were both getting pretty tired of driving by the time we got to a rest area west of Jerome, Idaho and decided to start looking for places to camp.  That option did not work out, and we continued on to Jackpot, Nevada where we are  boondocking for the night in a designated free camping area at Barton’s Casino.  After getting parked, we walked across Hwy 93 to have dinner at their casino and I played the machine long enough to pay for our dinner.  We have both decided that  tomorrow will be a shorter day and that we will probably get a later start and will be aiming for Ely, NV.
