I'm definitely up for this. Nothing like a road trip, combined with a photo workshop!
Just a couple of questions:
1) The most direct route from Boise, Idaho is 84 to 51/225 South, then I80 West at Elko over to 305 South at Battle Mtn, a jog over on 50 at Austin, pick up 376 South to 6 into Tonopah... What is 376 like that time of year? I love the idea of seeing the the Toiyabe (at least from the road... can't stop too long, gotta get to Tonopah!)
2) What accomodations are available in Tonopah... Camping, motels, squatting in abandoned mines?
