    I use to ski when I was a teenager, I was pretty good but it's been decades. I got a bad knee too thanks to tearing my ACL a couple of years ago, so I don't think I'm going to risk it.

    Kenny, don't forget to hit Virginia City. Say "hi" to Little Joe, Hoss, Adam, or Mr. Cartwright!

    They are actually not in Virginia City. The old "Bonanza" set was in Incline Village (at Lake Tahoe). Unfortunately, it was closed down a few years ago. It was a fun place to take the kids.

    But a ride to Virginia City is a great idea!!! Geiger Grade is very fun, but can be pretty dangerous. I lost a riding buddy a few months ago. Another rider came into his lane & they hit head on. Ride defensively.

    Monica,

    I remember that set. It was a fun place and I I remember it as a kid, too. That series was tremendously popular, huh? Sunday evenings after Walt Disney World I think it played on NBC.

    When Monica gets back from her Oregon trip, we all will have to meet up, including Doug. Kind of like a Northern Cal/Nev gathering.

    Re: Exploring my new backyard; The Sierra Mountain Range

    [QUOTE=Monica A;614924

    Highway 49 to Downieville is a very fun ride too. We usually ride all the way to GrassValley on Highway 49. Great lunch place - Bubbas Bagels and then back Highway 49 to Reno. You go West on 80 to Truckee. Then Highway 89 North (this is the extremely scenic part). Turn left at Sierraville (dead ends) and highway turns into Highway 49. This is where the road gets twisty & fun. Be careful, it has a decreasing radius turn on it that sneaks up on you. Also, if it is labeld 20MPH or 15MPH, believe it. Other than that, it is a great fun ride!
    [/QUOTE]

    Wait until after labor day to ride this on the weekend cause now in the summer it sucks on the weekend. I live just outside Grass Valley so I know this road well. It's a blast between September and when the snow flies but now it's full of really slow cages.


    Looks like we need to plan a forum ride.


    Burning fossil fuel and loving it!!

    Re: Exploring my new backyard; The Sierra Mountain Range

    I'm heading out to Street Vibrations in September the long way round. Possibly camp up in the mountains and turn it into a two day trip. Any one else planning on going out this year?
