Any gas in Gold Point or do we need to be self sufficient? The 3 gallons on the Husky TE610 even with a 1 gallon Rotopax don't go all that far.

Herb or Walt will usually have gas available since they know there is a group coming. Give Herb a call or email to confirm.

Herb confirmed in July that they will have a 2K gal tank on-site. Current price (at that time) was $5/gal.

Looking forward to it. Will have my new 2014 KTM 500 EXC with a 5.3 tank.
If anyone needs gas, I can bring a extra 5 gallons up from Vegas.

PS, don't park near a big white truck with multi lights on the front.
