    I can't commit yet, but I've got some interest (I just relocated to SoCal). My company has alternate Fridays off, so if it's on one of those weekends there's a higher probability of me making it.

    It would be great to have you! I try and plan the date around all the other activities that happen around here in the summer...golf tournaments, festivals, Hot August Nights, etc. I'll do some checking, but probably the best dates will be the weekend of July 7th or July 14th.

    Well I'd say that gives me a 50/50 shot Obviously I'm not asking or making requests as to which weekend; I might have some PTO to use if needed.

    I just realized how much of an a$$ I'd be if I missed this.

    How far out is Las Vegas from this? I'm considering flying in and either renting or bumming a bike for the weekend. Whats the date??? July should work better for me. I'll be sitting on over 8 weeks of time off and I'll need to use some. Might even ride out but not sure if I'll be able to take 2+ weeks off at once.

    See if you can find out which weekends you are off in July and let me know.

    Looking at the weekend of July 7th or July 14th.
    Reno is much closer to me than Vegas. Reno is about 80 miles and Vegas is about 400 miles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smith_Valley,_Nevada https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sm....3482646?hl=en
    What I've done in the past for all the out of town people is offered to let them ship their gear/clothes/sleeping bags/tents, etc. to me so that they don't have to haul a bunch of stuff on their bikes. Then ship it back to them after the rally.
    We'd love to have you!

    Like I said I'd likely Fly. Smith Valley is 3K miles from my Driveway so 6K miles before riding on the rally... Might think about doing this with the bike but 6 Iron butt rides is a ALOT. I'm looking at bike rentals and flying as long as the pricing isnt through the moon.

    Thanks! I'd love to come!
