    I am definitely up for checking out the spring(s). Never been.

    Along those lines are ride signups posted/happening yet or did I miss the boat? :cry

    See post # 12
    http://ridelist.robgapps.com/

    There a few up now I think 3 or 4
    Many more will be up shortly
    Most will be in by the middle to end of Feb

    Due to the road washouts that happened in August I need to do just a little more research before I post my noob ride, but I will try to post my Cerro Gordo ride after I get back from the Super Bowl party I am going to
    Not sure what to list as a skill level for Cerro Gordo as I have never been there before but that will make it more of an unknown adventure , well at least for me

    The main road to Cerro Gordo was graded last year and in very good shape - easy. The ride from the back side - east side is intermediate but might be more difficult depending on the condition of a creek bed you must ride for a few miles.

    Miss not being able to go already.

    Might have to try a loop
    come in from the east go out on the west maybe detour through Darwin if time allows

    Wish you were going too, wanted to personally say THANK YOU ! and buy you a top quality drink for hooking me up with an antenna for my GPS after I thoroughly destroyed mine last year

    Class act sir :bow I WILL get even with you, :wink: maybe next year

    Hey, you can just do what Lost Rider does and call it a "Beginner Noob" ride. Then it will definitely be an adventure...:huh

    for more info or questions about DV road condition.......this is a good source....http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=912416

    cindy and stephen.

    last year, rider914 lead a noobish-intermediate group to south pass. getting to the hot springs is a long day. hope a ride leader will step up, then form a smaller group/pick up the pace and you'll be able to get there and back to camp before dinner (barring flats and breakdown issues).

    FOLKS, WE WILL BE CLOSING THE LIST VERY SOON. SIGN UP NOW OR WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT YEAR.

    I NEED TO CLOSE IT BY TOMORROW SO I CAN GIVE THE FINAL NUMBERS TO PSR AND CATERERS.

    CHEERS.

    Event shirts update...
    We have orders from about a quarter of the participants - thank you all that have ordered and paid. My assumption is that the vast majority of event attendees will want the souvenir shirt - it's a good one this year. Each time we post a reminder a bunch of orders pour in so that's why I'm putting up this reminder again. We'll keep doing it 'till we have to cut off orders and print the shirts. We are not going to print a lot of extras, so don't go asking to buy a shirt later - at or after the event because THERE WONT BE ANY TO BUY!

    DON'T WAIT - ORDER NOW!! :deal

    I haven't seen any reports of the Cerro Gordo road that comes down the Saline side. Rumors that it was pretty washed out last July storm

    Need to pre ride it before taking Noobs down or up it.

    :y0!

    Hey Little Bike- Stoke & I depart from Pahrump thurs am, just started building a route based on Spafxer's input (below, post #418). Glad to have you join us if interested.

    :ricky:ricky:ricky


    Current rough draft (new to me basecamp & Montana :hmmmmm) About 150 miles at a leisurely pace (taking Mesquite Valley / Furnace creek rd instead of Old Spanish Trail) reckon we'll reach PSR early afternoon with time to set up camp, relax and rehydrate...
