    These pictures are outstanding. I just found the info on this ride and am sorry I missed it. Is there another one coming and how do I sign up?

    Open track club auto racing for one. I'd drop $1200 for a two day weekend at Laguna Seca, just on entry fee, tires/brakes/gas. Triple that if you break something or scratch the car.

    No need to add more ghost pictures to my camera so off to Rhyolite
    First time I have ever seen public access to the train depot / Casino very cool to get up close outside and also be able to peek Inside

    We ran up to Beatty to top off the gas tanks and hopefully see some wildlife but the jack asses were nowhere to be seen unlike last year

    Bookworm is a fast learner
    I was going slower than normal so she could see the lines I was using to get through the tougher sections every time I looked back she was right behind me picking the good lines so I said screw it she's got this so I took off to catch up to Phillip and Justin I took another look behind me and she was right behind me - pretty cool

    sorry, however the 2017 is already on the planning stage.

    meantime, to fill in the gap....we will have the pahrump rally in november. still getting the dates firmed up.


    http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/official-pahrump-nv-ride-report.1106177/


    similar terrain but the camping will be on green grass!



    +1 on sports car racing or anything that has 4 wheels especially high performance and 4wd.

    then, if you own a boat , adventure riding is a poor man's sport......:lol3

    keith, that's one of your best RR so far! thanks.


    i recall rhyolite was a town and even had a bank, but never knew that building was a train station. cool to be riding through history.


    also nice to see more female riders and noobs coming out to the event. at the beginning we only had one (sopascat), then just keep on increasing. this year, if i'm not mistaken, i counted 11 and a couple more could not make it.

    Hmm...that might be its nickname, but the sign over the door said Casino...and I didnt see any tracks?

    *Edit - OK, just saw your vintage pics, very cool. Maybe later in its life it was used as a casino.

    we had lots of activities on friday night. jimmy did a demo behind the rv area which i missed, then we had dinner and didn't get a single picture. not sure what i was doing then, already forgot.

    one of the highlights was dan's presentation of his south america ride. dan is an outstanding alumni of the noobs rally and survivor of the bataan death march led by lost rider. that probably helped dan to become a tougher rider.

    you'll find his RR here. awesome trip and the pics are front page materials. best of all, he did volunteer work and helped raise $ for charity.

    if dan was able to do it, think most of us can.


    thanks to migelito and marie for hosting.
