    After discussion in the Reno thread. Here's the basic plan. Dates June 19-22, 2014.

    Starting in Gerlach, and ending in Montello. Thats not border to border, and not ALL dirt, but very close. I picked Gerlach, because I have never been in the BlackRock and I though that would be cool. Go from there to Knott creek/Onion Reservoir, maybe stay the night in one of those places. From there we come out at the NDOT station just south of Denio. Small amount of pavement to what is called Sheep Camp Rd. That will take us up and over the Bilk Creek range into Kings River Valley, and out to Orovada(more pavement). Head north on 95 for a few miles onto a road Indian creek road, that will take you over to Hinkey summit and out at Paradise valley. Maybe stay up there somewhere or down to Chimney Creek. From there I'm not sure of a route that crosses the Owyhee desert. I know the IL Ranch has a ton of that locked up. The map showed a road that goes from around Chimney Creek that looks to head south and come out between Getchel and Twin Creeks, but not sure what of that is locked up either. If we can get to Midas we can go through Tuscarora and then a small amount of pavement again on route 227 I think, over Chicken Creek summit toward Maggie Summit. This will spit out north of Wildhorse Res on Route 228. Another small amount of pavement to the Sunflower Flat road. From there over Merritt Mountain toward Jarbidge. Somewhere around Merrit we could stay the night, there are some pretty cool camp spots up there. From Jarbidge, we can head over Coon creek summit toward Charleston. There is a road that will take us back north through Cow creek and Draw creek I think it is, by Wildcat Guard shack and out to the O'niell basin road. Then over by the Winecup ranch and across 18 mile to Montello... That is a rough draft, we can fine tune as we plan. So who's in?

    Mid may sounds good to me, more than enough time to plan, request time off, etc.

    Oh and in!
