Looks like a great place to ride. How are the roads going into the town for us who would bring a travel trailer?

excellent....love to check the area out and the northeast portion of dv.
also, i like the idea of riding to wmrs from the back side.

jr, i emailed herb (goldpoint) that we are canceling our reservation and instead we will be joining the las vegas riders.


what is the quickest or best route coming from l.a.?

i am thinking of the 14N-395N-168 @ 6 hours from my house.


thanks 3UP for the info about the road condition. i assume that is the 168 and the main road to gold point.
