US 50 across Nevada

Plan to ride from Jacksonville, FL to west coast next Spring; across FL and AL, up MS Delta, across AR, N across OK and KS, NW across NE, thru Badlands of SD, NW across MT, across northern ID, follow the Columbia River over to the coast, down OR and CA coast to SF; then east back to Mobile, AL. I have my route planned to SF and am looking at options for riding east. I would like to cross NV and then mid-state UT, S to Four Corners region, then across New MM, TX, OK, AR, LA, and MS to Mobile.

I have driven U.S. 50 across NV. I will be camping all the way, and my concerns about NV and UT are the distances between sources of water and food.

My other thought is to take Trans AM route across OR and then S across UT to the Four Corners region. Thoughts about the U.S. 50 route across NV? I remember driving over 100 miles once before I came to a store. I hate riding with a Camelback. I could make 100 miles on 1.5 gallons of water. Would I find water within that range? Thanks
