This trip is on the calendar and a little different than most of our runs. Many of you know that Doug and myself have participated in the RallyVenture the past 2 years. We really enjoyed all the new areas we were introduced to along with some new ways to navigate and want to share this with the club. We will be in the pines and through the desert all in one day. This trip can be done with just about any 4wd vehicle although a small lift and at least 32" tires would be more enjoyable.

Preferred Motel for Saturday night http://www.virginiacityinn.com/

For those that have never been to Virgina City, NV it is rich with history and its beginnings with silver mining. There is interesting history and fun stuff for kids as well.http://www.visitvirginiacitynv.com/

The Plan:

Saturday morning meet at Exit 194 off 80 near the Boca Reservoir at 8am fueled up and ready to go.
Lunch in Reno around 11:30-noon Top Off fuel
Make it to Virginia City by 6-7pm
Dinner and figure out who has the best Bloody Marys in town.

Sunday you can just head home from Virginia City or go back the long way on a different route with some cool history to Reno and head home from there.
