Yeah Gerlach is barely a "town".. it's really just a collection of buildings along the side of the highway and at that time it's chock full of traffic and people. Definitely a no go.
I'm trying to wrack my brain and remember a gas station in Nixon, but I always blow through it (Nixon, not my brain. Well.. maybe sometimes). The closest place past there that would definitely be ok to park at would be the Love's truck stop in Fernley.. but that's a ways south. Consult google maps for distance references.
Anyone else wanna chime in here?

It's good to know that Gerlach isnt a good option. I really don't want to piss off the locals - those dudes shouldnt have hassle cause me and my buddy havent planned well!!
We're trying to time it so we arrive around the same time, but with him driving 16 hours and us 10 that's gonna be difficult, so we prob need somewhere that we can park up for a couple of hours while one of us waits.
Neither of us are in any way famliar with the area (first timers) so want an easy to find pre-determined spot.
Is there sufficient parking at the gas station? Would it be cool to pull up there for a couple of hours.
