Rooms have been reserved at the Stagecoach Hotel and Casino in Beatty, Nevada, Thursday through Sunday. Phone is 775-553-2419. The address is 900 E Highway 95 North.

There is a large gas and convenience store onsite...Two miles to the north sits Baileys Hot Springs---Take a dunk in one of the four natural hot springs enclosed in a metal shed or head to the Happy Burro where owner Fred Summers serves his favorite Pabst Blue Ribbon on draft!!!!

Thursday’s get-acquainted ride will be a simple tour of the town and surrounding area, Non-hosted dinner. Friday and Saturday ride’s itinerary will be decided based on weather and desired participation. Be prepared for Warm weather and route mileage of 150 miles or so daily.  We will ride to Scotty's Castle, where the guided tour can be taken.  Food (NO gasoline) is available at Scotty's Castle.  Then on to Ubehebe Crater, Harmony Borax Works, and other points of interest.  At the end of your ride there will be 100 octane refreshments at the host hotel and a refreshing swim in the 85-degree pool.  Dinner is on your own, have fun!!  The weather in October can be in the high 90's with the nights in the mid-60's.  Average annual rainfall is 1.70", with October at .11".  You'll probably not need rain gear.  We will go from -283' at Badwater to 5,475' at Dante's View.  There are some fairly steep grades for a short distance, both up and down.  Poop-out pickups will cover all sections of the run with the exception of Titus Canyon.
