I know exactly where we are talking about now...when I was a kid I used to hunt for doves etc. up that way with my dad. This will be fun.

I'll be a GO for sure on Sunday. I don't have problems driving a mile or two to the trail - I just don't do it fast. The Zuk only has a 1.3EFI in it, and the dual toys don't have an overdrive in high-high, and it has other problems that limit my speed (death wobble, don't want to temp the high pinion rear to blow out).

I'm game also for coming up saturday morning, wheeling in the afternoon, and having a zuk dinner saturday night.. but I'm a looking for a hotel with good lot security (probably should just bite the bullet, and check into the hilton, since that place will probably be full of 4x4's.)

I also know nothing about Reno, other than it's a place on the map in Nevada, and I've driven through it several times on I80. :D

Hilton!

the part that sucks with the Hilton is; it is one of those BIG hotels and you have to park WAY out in the parking lot and then WALK forever to the hotel, across the casino, up the elevator and all that to your room.

in this situation i like the "motor-lodge" type better. your rig is closer to you so you can keep an eye on it. the Hilton does have good security and they just put up all new lot lighting. looks like daytime now it's so bright. - your choice.

When we stayed at the Atlantis the parking lot security was so good they were a little obnoxious...which is great when your junk is outside! I cant imagine that it will be lax at the Hilton with all of the RCAA junk in the lot.

I'm planning

Yeah, i'm planning on Sunday for sure.

i suppose we will all meet up at Moon Rocks either friday or saturday and make a plan from there, otherwise i suggest we meet at 9:00am at the mentioned shopping center on King Row & McCarren.

Moon Rocks is about 30 mins. north from Reno. The area the trail is in on the west side of town, about 10 mins from the exit to Moon Rocks...so 40-45 minutes???

We've been getting snow for the last few days here. It's been melting daily though and it shouldn't be much of an issue.

wish I was able to get up there and see this event. really want to see all the sami's out there wheeling together. But sadly, there is a thing called school, work, and lack of wheeler that keeps me from going:( .

So are we on for Sunday? You guys realize that this is a very short trail right? I figured most of you would want something short before the drive home. If you guys want to spend more time on the trail and want to hit more challenging terrain, that could be arranged as well.

Where is everyone going to be at the comp on Saturday? Is there going to be a meeting place to discuss the Sunday run?

Seeing as there will be no where any of us can distinguish as a meeting place due to the fact that some have not been there before and you cant really say meet by that brown rock by that other brown rock, why dont we look for the BFGoodrich truck and meet there at noon? That should be parked right there by the front courses and easy for all of us to find????

by the BIG BFgoodrich truck sounds good to me.

since i'v never actually met any of you guys, i wonder how many strangers i'll have to ask before someone says, "yeah, i have a samauri."
