Neil and I are towing my 40. Cheeseman & Crash are already through Carson City. Tch2fly is in Reno. Nakman is in BF Wyo. That is all I know for now.

I passed Tim on his way out this morning, we were on US 285, him on his way down, me on my way up. We exchanged cruiser waves, his roof rack looked like he was ready for an expedition!

Made it to Carson City. We're thinking now we may roll over to Tahoma tomorrow and leave the truck and trailer where the trail ends. We're getting excited now !
