And it also feels like you never get out of the state it's very large. Never pass a fuel stop there, you just do not know where the next one will pop up. But all and all it's not bad, at least when we went through...Have a great trip.

It's a far distance between fuel stops
once you start across the salt flats even
when you can see the mountains to
the west

If you're traveling I-80 from Wyoming to Nevada and beyond; it's about 200 miles from Evanston, WY to (West)Wendover, NV. Fill up in Evanston and eliminate the hassle of getting fuel in the Salt Lake City area.

To the guys that recommended to go on I-84 to near Ogden then down 89 to I-15 and I-215.... Thank you so much. I just came through there, I have been on I-80 through park city and was thinking how rough it would be pulling the camper, so I took the other route. That was the best extra 9 miles I ever went. Thanks again guys.

Along that route there will no problem for finding gas, it not like the Yukon!

As for the down grade into SLC, if you take the above mentioned route along I-84, (which goes westbound, not north), you will travel one of the most beautiful routes in the nation. That drive alongside the Weber River is something to be experienced.

Here is a link to video I shot from my semi going up the canyon .....
