Reno, NV to Caldwell, ID

I would describe the drive from northern Nevada to southern Idaho as "miles and miles of wide open spaces".  Signs like "next services 57 miles" and "next gas 100 miles" give you some idea of how sparsely populated the area is.

I did find it interesting that the speed limit went from 65 mph in Nevada to 55 mph in Oregon to 65 mph in Idaho.  It was essentially the same road with the same road conditions and traffic but different states arrived at different speed limits as to what was safe.

Lastly, I checked into the Ambassador RV Park in Caldwell where I will stay until Monday when I head to White Bird, Idaho for the 3rd Annual Hells Canyon Ride.
