Past Ride Reports

June 14   This was a night ride to the South side of Cold Creek.  Nice ride but very dusty.  There 32 rigs, and there were horses.  It was somewhat technical since there were switch backs and rocks.  Returning the group split in half and one half went back the same way and the other half tried to find a new route.  Someone lost their fuel pump and was towed back through the dust.  Basically they went to Wheeler Pass and did not do any side canyons.

June 6/27, 6/28  This ride is for Beaver, Utah.  Camp is 20-30 miles from I15.  Some people misplaced the camping areas. Lonnie Smith led the ride.  It was dry RV camping for most. Saturday was a 60 mile ride, almost back to Beaver, but was very hot. There were 13 machines and 17 people.  The ride was 40 miles Sunday and more technical.  The ride was to Circleville and you need to watch width.  Over 60 inches can be a problem.

The route is part of the Paiute trail system and is cooler since it reaches 10,000 feet.  They made it to Puffer Lake.

  1. The guests from BLM were Jimmy Linares, Bonnie Leavitt, Alyse McLalister, and Chris Lineham.

The discussion was about what we were going to do if our grant proposal was accepted.

Our grant proposal was for $27,700 and our goal is start using and doing the work in March or April, before the heat hits.

We would be involved with the setting up and labeling the Back Country Byway in Goldbutte area.  This would not necessarily include kiosks.  It would be setting up the markers for the Scanlon Freeway road and another road.  It was 62 miles with 100 signs.  We will need a pounder and jack hammer.  We will try to add GPS coordinates.  Europeans like to use these roads.  We will need to keep track of our mileage.

They would also like our trip maps for the Searchlight area.  To convert for their use our DNR Garmin must be converted to .SHP.

BLM is trying to set up Travel Management Routes in Southern Nevada.  A Resource Management Plan is also due by September 2015.  They also want to have this done for the Searchlight area.

Public Lands Day is the last day of September for Clark County.

 

  1. We ordered more flyers and set a cost of $250 which would include stands.

Donations were made by Roger, Bob and John for the 50/50.  Also there may be others.
