In the case of NV, I can provide a Google Earth kmz file with ~20 northern NV and ~60 southern NV airstrips and other potential landing site placemarks. After laboriously cross-referencing them with the BLM Geo Navigator, many have been annotated to indicate whether the property is private, BLM, national monument, national conservation area, etc. Also, some of the placemarks have links to relevant threads on this site and elsewhere.
While my wife's terminal cancer has been keeping me close to home, reading BCP and tracking down potential landing sites has become my way of doing "virtual" backcountry flying.
PM me if you'd like to swap.

I drove home from Elko the loooong way (9 hours rather than 3) today and checked out that one. It sits on The Diamond A Ranch and is posted private. The road runs right along the strip. The wind sock is gone, but the frame is still up. The strip is over grown with sage brush and I would not land on the strip. The road is much better. It's 4.5 miles down the road to the Jarbidge river or a more direct walk is down an extremely steep canyon wall with 1000 vertical feet to the river. The area is amazingly beautiful and the river was begging to be fished, but I had no fishing gear with me. Murphy was in excellent shape. Anyone know of any more strips along the Jarbidge or Bruneau going down stream in Idaho? Really cool area, when I get some time I plan to fly out and explore a little more.
