    And it's almost to the 2 week point of the 2-4 wait. I just hate waiting...

    1st time trying it.
    I figured it had a good surface to mass ratio.
    Like the Mexican string cheese (which got too hot to rearrange)

    Any red mites currently? every time I venture up to the black-rock area springs I run into mites. We were at the ones in the Ruby Valley this past weekend and the main pool had them everywhere...

    I have a MWB 2nd gen with a 3" lift 33" tires full skids and sliders with kickouts and NO plans on taking mine on it in the near future.
    High clearance bumpers, lockers, a crawlbox, bigger tires & sorter wheelbase would be a big help

    Sliders are a must. First time I did SR I was on 265s in my tacoma. That was before the new section was put in which has arguably the hardest obstacles now. Also, the trail itself has gotten a little harder over the years. But, that being said, with sliders and a spotter you could do it. I believe in the taco!

    As always, we'll be going in the spring if you want to go.

    Hi All. Any recommendations for a fall desert camping trip outside of Reno. Gerlach and yellow rock canyon looks cool. Mites?

    Mites are only in certain hot springs.

    Just get some good maps and explore around. Plenty of public land to find your own special spots. It’s probably easier to list places you shouldn’t go than places you can.

    Depends on what direction you run it. From alpine to Utica is definitely easier.

    It could be done with an experienced wheeler and good spotter. Just my opinion...
