I just wanted to send out early note about our 2016 Ghost Town event called Wild West. Kyle finished up the website today. Registration opens on 1/9. We've mapped out some awesome trails and if that doesn't suit you, there's hundreds of miles of trails to explore on your own. If you do not camp, lodging is limited as this is a real old west ghost town. Herb, the owner, has some restored cabins for rent and there are a few rooms just north in Goldfield.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Wild West

I won't make this, but it sure looks like fun. I did some of my first motorcycle off-road riding from Gold Point down into Death Valley. We used to have an annual January event in Beatty that I would attend each year. It was always a challenge just to get to Beatty from my home in the northwest. But it was always worth it.

Will try to make it.

Been through here a lot, but usually under the auspices of BITD, SCORE, HDRA, etc., which is to say - as quickly as possible.

Nice for you to arrange this Nick. Pretty cool that all the proceeds go to the town. I took a crew up there 4 or 5 years ago, very interesting. Have fun.

Thanks man! Herb has been really good to us, so we can have a great weekend and be able to give back to the town.


Registration opens tomorrow!

Hey Nick,
Looks like great fun and community. Tell me please, I remember you or someone going deep into a mine shaft with barely a turn around at the end. Is this in the vicinity? If not, where is that located?

If I can make it due to financial and earning constraints, I will be cross country from deep south Florida. So a few hundred mile detour to experience that adventure would be practical. I would probably visit family in Los Angeles at that time (although they have really thin parking spots and I hate door dings #%[email protected]!)

Possibly, I am way out of line as to proximatiy and geography. Please advise.

I need a little adventure and vacation in my life.

Cheers!

I show that as a 7-hour detour out of your way, assuming Interstate 10 from Florida to Los Angeles. Well worth it.

Nick, Do I have to sign up for the dinners when I register or can I pay for them when I get there?
We ask that you pay when you register. #1 , it helps us keep a count on how much food Herb needs to buy and #2 , we're doing a meal ticket since we are paying Herb in cash up front so we won't have any worries when everyone arrives. This is a real ghost town. The food has to be shipped in before the event. :rocker:

we have LOTS of mines like that here! We're planning on going into the Mohawk mine which is a new one for me, but I hear it has lots to see inside. I think the one you are thinking of is near Area 51 in the old Tempaiute camp. Or it could have been Reveille. Who knows man, I spend a lot of time under ground.

Come on out!!

For those planning on attending the Wild West event, you HAVE to purchase the meals as part of the registration or you will most likely NOT get food. We have to be able to order food based on the number of people that have paid. There will be a very limited number of meals available for purchase to those not paying during registration. Keep in mind that this is a real ghost town and food has to be shipped in. we added the meal options in the registration in order to eliminate wasted food at the end. Registration | Wild West

:clap: Just purchased my tickets!!

I am going to try really hard to make this. If I can, I will PM you about possibly caravanning. I'm in Portland, OR so we could meet up along Hwy 84 or 97 or something depending on which way you are planning on heading down to NV

FJPDX, that would be great. By my calculation it will take about 14 to 15 hours to get there. I was planning on a to day drive there and back with some site seeing on the way if possible. If that works for you, it would be great to hook up.
