Any must sees along the way? I’m into sight seeing old western towns such as Virginia City, also any nature sight seeing places, but give me all of your thoughts, I’m open to go anywhere as long as it’s worth going there.

Definitely stop in Carson City and ride the train and see the museum at Nevada State Railroad Museum (Mon – Fri only though):

I wouldn’t take 80 to Reno and then south, I would get to the Central Valley and take 50 through Tahoe and then over into the Carson Valley, so pretty.
