  • The Muster Memorial week May 30- Jun 3 2022 Nevada

    Well, I am throwing it out there with hopefully enough time for planning and vacation scheduling.

    Just a get together for meeting, camping, Rovering and exploring and gunfire.

    The Muster
    Memorial week May, 30- Jun 3, 2022

    Place: Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, Nevada website: http://parks.nv.gov/parks/berlin-ichthyosaur If the campground is full there are nearby options with primitive camping.

    Join me as I show you ghost towns and explore miles of dirt roads to abandoned gold mines, whilst camping and enjoying new found friends.

    You won't need a "built" rig, but will need to be self contained and prepared for desert travel, carry extra fuel and water for the week.

    Want to check out the area on GooooooooooogleEarth? go to; 38.881871, -117.609223 and look around.

    Gene-

    I'm looking at this to see if I can make the logistics/trip work. The park website says it's all "temporarily closed" for an extensive road project. Does this impact your itinerary? Will the park roads be open May/June? Curious minds want to know.

        I did not see that, badvibes. I have sent an email asking if it will be open by Memorial weekend. If not there is a gravel pit we cam meet at just off Hwy 844 at 38deg 52'26"N 117deg39'33"W before traipsing off into the back country. The Park is a unique place and good for a day or 2 of exploring.

          I suspect…if I were to attend … I would not be the only one that didn’t bring a Land Rover product. In fact a Ram PW, w/FWC. Any trails not amenable? So full size ‘Merican product. “I am all that is man” may only apply to Gene. Happy to carry everyone’s whiskey.

            Drew, as you are well aware there maybe some Desert pinstriping involved, no rock crawling is planned. That said I haven't been on all the trails.

              I got a reply back from the Park this morning as follows;
              Hello Gene,

              The Park Improvement Project has resumed and they anticipate being done at the end of April. We hope to reopen in the early part of May at this point, barring any more setbacks. Once we establish a firm reopening date we will post it on our homepage at www.parks.nv.gov and also update our phone message.

                So here's my plan;

                I picked the Memorial Monday to start, that give folks 2 days to get there. I plan on getting there the Thursday or Friday before to get a campsite. We can have 2 cars per site.

                If someone is planning on arriving Monday that will give those there early a chance to tour the Berln Ghost town or take the Diana Mine tour or hike the Richmond Canyon loop or just hang out in camp from the drive.
                Tuesday will be driving to Grantsville and checking the mine and town area and driving some trails, followed by heading East over Grantsville Pass(NF108) to the Reese ValleyRD21) and going North to NF024 and turning West, this brings us back to Union Pass and Berlin. Back to camp.
                Wednesday will be pack up and head South paralleling the mtns to our left and venturing up a few of them, such as Spanish Canyon where there are some old ruins. Bring your metal detector? Ending the day camping somewhere around the Golden King mine.
                Thursday we go over Golden Summit and South again on Rd21 and just when we get out of the mtn's a left along a dirt rd until we connect with NF451, We follow this back into the mtn's and check out Secret Basin and camp near the Cottonwood Creek further up the canyon. This is where you'll get any desert pinstriping if you didn't get any exploring around Grantsville!
                Friday we go back out 451/450 towards Round Mtn and venture up Peavine Canyon. I'd like to camp at the horse camp at the mouth of Tom's Canyon.
                Hopefully this will give folks with jobs Sat and Sun to get home.

                Nevada is full of places to go and see I'd like to have different routes every year. Hopefully the weather and fuel costs can make this happen. The altitude varies from 5000 to 6500ft and can be cold at night. Be prepared! I usually stop in Hawthorne for food and fuel before heading into the outback, I believe there is fuel in Mina, check first or Tonopah from the South and Austin or Carvers from the North. Gabbs has no fuel listed on Gasbuddy.

                If the park is still not open due to road repair we will meet at the previously mentioned rock quarry and go from there, just off Hwy 844 at 38deg 52'26"N 117deg39'33"W

                Any other questions, just ask.

                  Bout 2 weeks out now, I see Hwy 108 over the Sierras opened yesterday, my preferred route. So any takers? If not I might do something closer to home and not spend all my hard saved.
