Interesting Dick,
        I looked at my venerable Rand-McNalley and it appears that the
county road crossing the Lake/Harnery county line approximately 33 miles
north of the Oregon/Nevada state line is the location you refer to.  It
appears to be approximately equidistant 174 airline miles from I-84 at
Nampa, Idaho and I-5 at Ashland, Oregon.
        However, I am unable to find a common line for Harnery and Klamath
Counties.  Lake County is between them.  Perhaps your 2nd reference was to
        Good luck on the outing.  Should be lots of fun.  I am fully aware
of the wide open spaces and great distances as the size of the state and
the county count is quite similar here in New Mexico.
