I will be leading the Delamar ghost town run for the June 15th. We will meet at the Shell station in Ash Springs at 9:00 and roll at 9:30. Ash Springs is on Hwy 93, just a few miles North of Alamo. We will be visiting the Delamar cemetery, the remains of Helena, the Helena mine and the Helena cemetery.

Here's a link: https://www.ghosttowns.com/states/nv/delamar.html

I really hope to be doing the pre-run either the 1st or 2nd of june, depends on when i get my jeep back.

FYI. so you all know i made it to the meeting spot for the titus canyon but didn't go on the run because there was a small problem with the jeep and i didn't want to risk it. I took it to Jim Marsh, they took it in right away. they opened the rear differential and found the diff carrier had approximately 11 teeth broken off and the ring & Pinion severally worn. They are going to replace all the parts in the rear end. Its currently in work, just waiting.

We have folks flying in on the 15th so we can't make the run....We will see if you are going to do the pre-run and meet you on that one if you don't mind. Thanks! Gary & Tami

If that's a small Jeep problem, I'm glad you didn't have a big one!

The Pre-Run was AMAZING. Instead of going around the hill to the Helene Mine we will be going over the hill were there is a surprise at the top and a great view, then it drops down to the road leading up to the mine.

There is one spot where it eases into a wash but climbs right back its at a slight angle, but if you can get lined up on it so its not so much of an angle you should be fine. Its the same path we took the last time we drove this trail. I went back thru my pictures the last time and we did get a stock F-150 4x4 and my old green jeep thru it, and i believe Bob drove his Jeep Cherokee thru it. so it should not be a problem, just need to go easy. Like i said its just one spot. The rest of the trail i did mostly in 2WD.

One more thing: Nellis AFB was conducting its WSINT exercises and we got to see C-17's Cargo planes landing on the Dry lake bed while we standing up on the Helene Mine....it was Fantastic.

Just found out there is an accident on the I-15 north bound at the speedway, traffic at a standstill, Las Vegas BLVD may be an alternate route to the apex then I-15 north.
