OK... We'll be doing Bitter Springs on 6/20/15. Meet at the Moapa truck stop, at exit 75 on I15, North of Las Vegas. Meet at 8:30 and roll at 9:00. If anyone has any questions or needs directions, let me know. Hope to see you there.

Great! I've been wanting to do that run for a while. It's on my calendar. Thanks John.

I think I'll be there for my first run with the club. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

Count us in.
We have wanted to do this trail for years.

We now have a stock Chevy 2500HD 4x4, extra cab/full size box. Longer than most any vehicle I have owned. Nothing like my 5" long arm equipped Grand on 33s, or the several trail rigs I have owned in the past.
I'm an experienced driver and our current truck isn't much longer than our Suburban was, and I had it out a few times.

Having not been on this trail I'm not sure what to expect. My friend Bill took his stock 1500 Chevy on it a couple years ago, other friends said it should be no problem for me, and
since it is a club run (Stock friendly) I'm sure it will be fine.

Mike

Looks like I'll be missing this drive after all. I have to work Sat AM. Bummer. I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Warning - allow extra travel time, the Electric Daisy Carnival is also this weekend. I15 near the speedway is going to be busy. Since we live in Henderson we may be going up on Northshore Rd to Moapa. :shock: Chris

John, if I remember correctly the EDC starts just before sundown and ends at 5am, so daytime traffic around the speedway should be normal or pretty close to normal.
