well, If Donna and Rose are there,,,,, Smokin' Hot!!!!  :-)

Actually, it won't be CRAZY hot most likely, there is very little humidity (hopefully!),

probably like mid 80's to maybe mid 90's F, it will be warm, but not unbearable you gotta remember 

Ely is at about 6,500 ft and Reno is at about 4,500 ft ASL, so it can be a little cooler than say Vegas.

(about 2,000 ft).

The air conditioning in the Jailhouse is really good!!

My name is Rose I will be leading Leg 12 that leaves Ely, NV to Carson City, NV. We are riding in a desert but it is at a higher elevation then Las Vegas. It will most likely be in the mid to hight 90's. Yes, the humidity is extremely low, so make sure you drink water. Also don't forget to use sun screen. With the low humidity and full sun, you can get sun burn very quickly. I can't wait to meet you for the ride. I will get the route posted here shortly. I hope this helps you out. If you have any questions, give me a shout out and I will get back with you.

Good day Folk’s,

My name is Rose AKA “Sweet Pea”. I am your Leg Captain for Leg 12 Ely, NV to Carson City, NV of this year’s V2V. Join us for the last Sunday's Ride of the V2V. We will be riding through some Valley’s and curving up and over a few mountains the desert has to offer. So, pack your saddle bags and join us on the V2V. Meet up with some of your old VMC family and/or meet new VMC family, get a T shirt, and ride with some of the greatest people you would ever want to meet on a motorcycle. (Of which you would be one)!

You can now sign up for the 2022 V2V, it's active, it will take your money. and you need to sign up for the leg you want to ride! WHY???, because there is a lot of planning that needs to happen based on who signs up for each leg. Like YOU, you need to get your hotel booked for each nights stopped, NOW, sooner rather than later. Masks are "off" and people are traveling!

The Leg Captain for the day of your ride, needs to have an idea of who is going to be riding that day, and if you're not signed up, and "things" happen like, changing the leave point, changing the route, etc., YOU won't be aware of any of it.

Lunch stops need to be coordinated with the restaurants. Gas stops for 30 bikes are a whole different animal than a gas stops for 3 bikes. The ride time for the day can change dramatically based on the number of people attending. So, get your hotel booked, most rooms can be canceled (see booking info) if you're plan’s change. The event T shirts have to be ordered, and manufactured, these things all take time. Doesn’t happen spontaneously, do your part, get signed up, and get ready to enjoy your ride!

Please check your email and reply to the Saturday night dinner info if you haven’t yet.  I need to let the restaurant know soon so they’ll have time to get food prices on food.  Ely is pretty rural so I want to give them as much time as possible.  Who’s getting excited??  This girl!!!!  ☺️
