Episode #46 – The Loneliest Road in America

Listen to Episode #46 On-Demand

This week Jeremy and Dave visit the sparsely-populated stretch of U.S. Highway 50 through Nevada, dubbed the “Loneliest Road in America”. We’ll cross nine mountain ranges and stop at the few tiny towns that exist along the 300-mile trek from Fernley to Ely. The scenery, history, and solitude of this highway will stay with you forever…

We’ll cover this week’s news from the roadtripper’s perspective on This Week in Travel, discussing winter driving and the New York man that took it upon himself to fix the roads when local authorities didn’t. We’ll be answering your travel questions about free wireless internet in Travel Q&A, and Jeremy will open up The Travel Archive to listen to a few classic commercials from the golden age of radio, and we’ll laugh a little in our popular comedy segment On the Lighter Side.
