The 2015 Ghost Town Excursion – April 18th-19th - 2015 (Subject to change)

The Ghost Town Excursion is a fun off roading adventure to explore some of the old ghost towns outside Carson Nevada. The focus of this trip is for owners of pre-runner and off road vehicles of all types to make new friends and get their rigs dirty. Family and friends are welcome to attends as this is meant to be a social group, not just a run for the boys. As with all off road trips these are a meant to be a community activity as we all know something can always happen on the trail and supporting each other is key.

Planned Trip Summary:

The group will meet in Carson City, and head east to start the trek south. Total mileage for the day will be around 180 miles off fun trails. Planned stops for the day are the Churchill ghost fort, three ghost mines and ending in Bodie CA, ghost town. Sunday will be some more off road trekking and a stop at Gold Gate Ghost mine and ending for lunch in Markleeville. After lunch Sunday participants can caravan home or make their own adventure.

As this is an organized group, we fit into a “club” category. This means we have to comply the BLM (The Bureau of Land Management) and carry a permit. This is a small fee of $10 a vehicle which we have to collect and pay to the BLM for our land use permit. All other fees we were able to get group rate to keep the cost down so we are not braking the bank.
