  1. I reserved 20 rooms at the Carson Station and the dinning room we had dinner in last year as well. dinner at 7pm I should have final details later this afternoon or tomorrow. looks like the room split will be half kings and half queens and the reserved status will go away Friday June 27th Hotel just called and rates are the same for either rooms $89.00 + tax I'll go in tomorrow and sign the contract :chpr :chpr see ya in July :chpr :chpr
  2. Gold Dust West wants a 2 night minimum over the holiday. if you guys want to stay in Carson City it looks like the Carson Station again like last year. Maybe a block of rooms in Reno? I know the Dealer would like to see us in the morning on the way out to San Fran. any thoughts????
  3. Wendy & I are in. I will get a block of 20 rooms reserved very soon so we will get to stay at the Gold Dust West again instead of the Carson Station like last year. well actually, I'll sleep at home was gonna do it this week but I came up with that flu bug :bm stay away from sick people, this sucks
  4. hey folks, ride safe. heard thunder storms east of us this morning and certainly hope you are able to avoid the wet. last nights dinner was fun but next year we should give some thought to Marriott's and the Fandango Casino down the street. Better food by far.
  5. you might want to take a look at the route you planned and this forest fire that is growing in size toward your planned route http://www.rgj.com/story/news/2015/06/21/washington-fire-continues-spread-markleeville-calif/29089475/
  6. lodging and dinner is set up by the leg captain in most cases. I jumped the gun here in Carson City early because the dates fell over a 3 day weekend and rooms here are hard to get unless set up in advance, then I ended up taking the baton from Ely to Carson anyway.
  7. is anyone going out to Ely this year to ride 2 legs back? Wendy & I will be leaving Dayton and heading East about 9-9:30am on the 2nd and be in Ely around 3pm. we could even meet up in Carson City for breakfast then head out
  8. here is something to think about as far as your route. This Victory Highway marker will be in Truckee later this month and it is along the super slam 80
  9. what type of shirts do we have this year? the wife wants to know. Me, I'll take an 1XL tee, and 2 pins. if you have tank tops the wife would like an 1XL
  10. I talked to Bill the owner of Reno Cycles and Gear today and have set up a stop there on our way to Ely. Store will be open if anyone needs something. Wendy & I will meet up with you folks at The Carson Station. kick stands up at 8am
  11. since the dealer would like to see us off and buy us breakfast, (of sorts) Wendy & I will meet you folks at the Carson Station for a lite breakfast then kickstands up around 8am and head to Reno Cycles & Gear for coffee & gut bombs before heading east for Ely. We will have to ride the superslam until we get to Fernley then get on hwy 50 east. A quick lunch ( if wanted ) will be at one of the small towns we will go through along the way, probably in Austin. I still plan on getting us to Ely around 3pm or so.
  12. this was fun. 4 of us from the Comstock Victory Riders participated, 3 of us went to Ely. thanks out to Craig, Pat and Tony :appl :appl :appl had a cool ride out this year for a pleasant change, was a bit warmer on the ride back, but not bad. pleasure meeting and riding with the Lost Coast Victory Riders and a few others. Here's some pics oop's, they need to be resized before I can put them up
  13. If anyone is interested I am planning to backtrack the leg 1 route and meet up with them somewhere between Topaz Lake and the top of Ebbit's Pass. It will be a good ride for us too.
  14. here's the plan for Sunday Morning June 22 It all starts at the Carson Station, Wendy & I will show up for Breakfast just before 7am and we should ALL be ready to be KSU for Reno at 8am. Please be gassed up and ready to go. It is 90 miles from Carson City to Fallon going through Reno so we should all be good for fuel. Dealer - KSU 9-9:30 to Fallon 64 mi about an hour. we will take hwy 80 to Fernley then take the hwy 50 ALT to Fallon. Fallon, get gassed up and head east on US 50 to Austin, 110 miles about an hour 50min. Austin, get gas, lunch (for those that want it) then head east to Eureka, 70 miles about an hour 10min. Eureka, get Gas then head east to Ely 77 miles about an hour 20min. check in, GET LIQUID REFRESHMENTS :beer Dinner/passoff is set for 7pm in the lower dinning room at the Hotel Nevada Those from our LC who are going east will meet up with us at the Dealer. looking at the miles and times we can expect a good 6 hours in the saddle. not many cops out there so we can make up some time. if anyone wants to stop at Middlegate we can take a breather there. PS - my ride co-captain will be pgivens also folks, I need a pretty fair count for how many will meet up at the dealer so they know how much stuff to get, just click above for 1up or 2up
  15. The meetup for this leg looks to be in Dayton at the Gold Ranch Casino for breakfast. It is right on East Highway 50 maybe 1/2 a mile east of the 4 way stoplight on the north side of the hwy. The crew from California are planing to meet us there for breakfast then we will head east for Ely. kickstands up about 9:30 or so. Good Food here, decent prices. just ask R&R Bob or Redd This casino was Terrible's Casino so if your trying to map it you may have to try the old name. Dinner/Baton Passoff will be at 7pm in the lower dinning room at the Hotel Nevada. it's less than 3 months away :chpr

  17. Their banquet room is a joke anyway so no loss there. they will probably seat us in the back and that should work. I never really partied here but I have had more than a few meals, breakfast and lunches mainly. Not to shabby for food. If you all are game I talked to Jimmy a bit about meeting for breakfast out in Dayton at the Gold Ranch casino, it's on the way to Ely right on east hwy 50 and has a pretty good breakfast menu with decent prices. this would give everybody a chance to fuel up so right after breakfast we jam to Fallon and points east. your thoughts?
  18. cool Jimmy, Hotel Nevada in Ely is good to go, got a block mostly on the 5th & 6th floors. 1 on the 3rd floor plus reserved the lower dining room. got at least 3 from Comstock going out for this :beer once the leg threads are up I'll put up the contact info
  19. yes I do but I haven't talked to him yet about it.
  20. We can take care of Leg 2 between Carson City & Ely. I know it well, I live right here near Carson City.
  21. Made up a batch of home brew, Patriot Lager. think I'll bring a six pack to enjoy in Ely, it'll be aged enough and ready to drink by then. here it is from the transfer to a fresh keg to settle again then bottled up the following week/today. end of the month it goes into a closet for a month then under the house untill I judge its time to drink it.
  22. Comstock just may throw in their hat to lead leg 2. I haven't been busy on that ball yet. That 2 week period is gonna be fun, what with the V2V and the MITM
  23. it travels 2 blocks south of my home along hwy50, I have NO excuse. We at least stop and have a beer and dinner with the group when they get in. I have been known to meet the group outside of town and ride in with them. Dinner is always a good time and hanging out before dinner is a blast. Then we get to ride to Ely and back. YEEEHAWWWWWWWWWWW
