    Leave Stagecoach at 10:30 am. Big loop: stagecoach silver springs lahontan Yerington aurora desert creek smith valley churchill canyon fort churchill home. 150ish miles. Gas and burger stop(s). Probably end up finishing in the dark. 95% dirt. Two XR650's and a DRZ400. Fast and fun ride with a lot of difficult terrain. Acres of parking if you want to truck in. Braaaaap.

    Anything going on in the Reno area? I got the bike running and almost dialed in. I can always use an excuse to ride.

    Thanks. Before I left last summer I went back up into that area we went with a buddy of mine. We spent most of the day, got lost, fell over... Good times.

    Can I just park in the dirt on the corner?

    I haven't been up there in a while, but it used to just dead-end in a pretty good sized open area.
