I believe so. I know that it's in between Carson and Reno.

Currently located in San Antonio, Texas, I wanted to mention that I use to live there, yet its been several years since I last visited Nevada alone. From the small town of "Fallon." Let me know if that name rings a bell.
Thanks! Yes Fallon rings quite a bell, I know Nevada like the back of my hand from many many hunting trips and my family members living all over it. Actually my Dads exhaust shop sponsors this big event that goes on in Fallon every year called Octane Fest. It is a HUGE offroad racing event, ranging from dirtbike races to unlimited class mudbogs. This year we were one of the main sponsors and built a 83' Chevy quad-cab long bed with a built 454 bored .30 over that was cranking about 600HP, along with 2 1/2 ton rockwell military axles equiped with the driveline braking system and all.

Heres a picture of it: (Yes the bed of the truck is completely even with the top of our 96' suburban.. this thing stands as tall as I do which is about 6ft!)

Correct. They say Reno is so close to hell you can see Sparks . Really there is no difference between the two towns, they have pretty much became one now.

Wow, nice lookin truck. Yeah it has been quite a few years since I have returned to Fallon, Nevada. I dont know if I will be visiting it again any time soon, but you never know. I heard it hasn't changed much at all. Although, I will have to make a trip out there to see this octane fest. Thanks!
