That's Not Nice - Or Is It?
Microsoft Streets & Trips said there was gas at Denio, Nevada but not so. On the other hand, there was gas and diesel at the general store in Fields, Oregon that it didn't know about. The buses all followed us to the store where they each bought $20 of diesel. Something about needing to travel out of Nevada regularly to keep their interstate permits & Fields was the closest place to get a fuel receipt as proof they were out of state. With receipt in hand, they headed back to Winnemucca where they make their living hauling miners to the mines.
Allstays Camp and RV app told us about was everything they'd said. Glad it wasn't longer and that I used first gear coming down the hill.
Our anticipated destination was the Page Springs BLM first-come first-served campground southeast of Frenchglen. Unfortunately, every one of the nearly 35 sites appeared to be "taken." About half featured a folding chair, a bucket, an open ice chest, or some other singular item (and a paid tag) giving the distinct impression the spaces were prepaid and saved for friends yet to arrive. I didn't think it was very nice, but I suppose the friends that benefited thought the system was wonderful!
