Soldier Meadows/Black Rock Nov 12-14

Well its getting close to the time for us Truckee guys to do our annual cold ass winter dirtbike trip to Northern Nevada. I thought Id throw it out there if anyone wants to go along.

Its always a good time but COLD. We camp next to some great hot springs, ride and have dinners at Soldier Medows Guest Ranch. Its about 3 hours out of Reno in the middle of nowhere.

Sorry, no action pics.

The camp area



High Rock Canyon



Lots of history and old ranches to check out


3 hours out of Reno that puts me 7 hours from my house.Sounds good but just a little to far for me.I would love to do anouther Moon rocks though. :cry:

Oh man thats tempting.....I think the wife would have my a$$ though. Ill be gone 4 day this next weekend..another trip is pushing it. It is UNREAL out there. My DRZ needs a Vacation like that.... :cry:

nice pictures...... :p:lol: :lol: :lol::cry: kinda reminds me of Rocky 1 :lol:;):lol: :lol: :cry: :cry: :lol: ...oh boy oh boy ;):lol: yo adrian! .. :cry: :cry: ... ah man :cry::lol::cry::lol::cry: :cry: hehe do you drink raw eggs before ya ride? :cry::lol: :lol: :cry::lol::cry: :cry: :lol::cry:

I expected a little bit worse from you about Nevada, is that all you got Bob? :cry:

I'm going easy on ya cause I like you sharpie... you da man! too bad we went from dust to snow in truckee just like that. I wanted to come up there one more time before the deep freeze....

oh those pictures are of Nevada? kinda hard to tell.... :cry:

That weekend is my last weekend before I go to Guam for 2 weeks. A big adventure weekend would be cool well in this case-cold. I have some great cold weather gloves - MSR Cold Pros..... But I need a quality ride Jacket and no local stores have anything nor my size....I need to order one on line I guess. Then I thought for local trips I can use my regular jacket set up...but for that place I can see I would want a good ride jacket.

I'm in. Hey Bob come on up. All you need is any waterproof jacket it doesn't have to be a motorcycle jacket. Go to a ski shop. By the way, I put on grip heaters after last years ride out there. Those hot springs sure are nice. :cry:

what's the campsite like? is it dog friendly.... I guess what I should ask is are your ride loops all day events or 2-4 hours out then back to camp again?

just curious... I like adventure weekend, but 5 hours drive is too far for me... when other spost are 2-4 hours out

I'm in Got my grip heaters got time off just need studed snows and I'm ready

With the weather I might have to get an electric vest. Or just sit in the hot springs.

Man Timmy,

That place looks absolutely awesome. Wish I could pull it off but unfortunately for me it looks undoable this time. You guys have fun, be safe, and stay warm!!! Brrrrr that place looks COLD


I got $200.00 from good ole Mom for my birthday and ordered a new Moose Expedition XXXL jacket online. Should be here in a few days. Made me think about your ride and all.

Still 5 hours there and back is too far.. I can't get friday off so I would get one day.-all day saturday ride with ya ..and I would probably slow you guys down..... I'll pass this time. I am interested though, that place looks wild and free. That kind of trip could put Nevada back on the map for me.

have fun.. :cry:.. maybe next year, if the offer comes around again I'll join ya. :cry:
