Thanks for the info

Gardnerville is a nice area....nice parks, good for kids. Small, but close to Carson and Reno for some fun. Good luck there, hope you like it.

Damn, you guys haven't been in a while! The meetings are now at the Pizza Barn on 395.

I second the vote for the area. I live in the Johnson Lane area between Minden and Carson where there are endless recreational opps!

Crime is low, at least that's what I have seen. Any comments, Geoff? You should have no troubles! Head to the end of Johnson and you will stay busy for many a day of wheelin

Check out the stompers website for runs they have at least once a month in the area.

Send a message via AIM to rob.lund
Not to hijack just4fun's thread, but I am also moving to the Minden/Gardnerville area. I figured it would be better to continue on this thread rather than start a new one. I was trying to find an apartment, and I'm not find a ton. Do you guys have any suggestions about where to look. I heard a couple people live in the Ranchos, is that area any good? Thanks for you input.

-Rob
