I got a group of flatlanders with near stock chrysler Jeeps that want to pay me to take them on an "Off-road trip" <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Can any of you tell me anything about the Old Como Road that runs south out of Dayton kinda towards Minden-Gardnerville.

I'd also like some info on the Brunswick Canyon trail out of Empire.

I figure a 50 mile trip from Dayton to Empire should oughta impress them.

<FONT COLOR="Red"> Check out some of the trips the Vituscan Missionaries take. Most trips are geared for less than "hardcore" rigs to accomodate more participants. A lot of the trail reports I have read tend to center around the Death Valley area.

Okay, Day trip or what? Take a run to Gerlach, Some pretty interesting roads up there. Nothing that a stock Jeep shouldn't be able to do easily. And there are about a million trails just to the east of Gardenerville that should suit your needs.

Plus you can always play on peavine <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

For a day trip with stockers, it would be neat to go Washoe Valley up Jumbo Grade. You can go through VC (lunch) and end up by Lockwood and check out the petroglyphs. It's all dirt and pretty easy. I'd want to drag them through the rocks though...

Thanks FeCamel ... I checked that one out last weekend with my old bone stock Jeepster. It's really mild except in a couple of places. I want to give them a little challenge without scaring the shit out of them.

Yeah, but I just can't resist making their eyes pop out. There are also a lot of mild fun runs out by the river. If you go from CC to Dayton and the like. Ash Canyon is pretty fun and a little more challenging, it ends at the trailhead to Hobart Lake. Kings Canyon goes up to Tahoe. If you guys ever want to try a more interesting run, let me know. I saw a bunch of guys from G'ville and Carson on Bronco Canyon over the summer, now that's a trail!
