In 09 on my way to the event I was hailed by a burner pulling a generator with a blown tire at the junction of Surprise Valley RD and 447. He had driven that route from Reno and lost 1 tire to a sharp piece of gravel. I'd caution against traveling on gravel roads unless you have appropriate tires. It looks like a nice drive otherwise.
