Discussion Starter #1
Flip the calendar to December and invariably, the discussions will soon begin on the debauchery that takes place in Nye County, Nevada and the surrounding areas. My delay in posting this thread this year was as a result of needing to get excused from an assignment. That happened yesterday.

Now, typically I'd tell those that are looking at this as a possibility to research some of the older threads here on this forum; the indexes don't seem to point back too terribly far. Search my handle and Death Valley in the Advanced search and you'll learn more than you probably want to. :lol:

This is held 'ride-in' style - you make your own accommodations, rides are impromptu (but, we've done much the same rides now for the more than ten years I've been doing this) and have a wide variety of riding skill levels.

Speaking of accommodations, the two places that are most commonly used are the Stagecoach Hotel and the Motel 6. Most choose the luxurious Motel 6 - like I did just now; reservations are made!

Most get there Friday the 14th**, most leave on Monday the 17th. The weather? Hey, last year was rather exciting, if ya ask me. Some braved it from as far east as the Sunshine State in fact! So it can be done, and has been done periodically over the time this little gathering has occurred.


Discussions may now begin...


** Friday? Isn't that Valentines Day? Yes. This means you need to do something *prior* to this date before you'll be given permission to go play in the desert.

I see where this is just a walking tour of the grounds with a Ranger to witness some of the damage done but Scotty's Castle target date to open and tour the Castle will be sometime in the fall of 2021.
I've toured the Castle back in the 80's and was hoping that it would be open next Feb. to do another tour. Bummer!

It's actually a rather simple algorithm. "Percent Smarter than Prior Year" = 1 / (Age X (Age X 2))

Some dispute the figures representing the Teenage Years. However what one must bear in mind is that this careful scientific calculation represents the actual as opposed to imagined increases in how smart someone is.
