    Well it looks like this trip will be a go :). Conditions are good with fresh snow and the weather is supposed to be between -5 and -11 and sunny or partly cloudy depending on what site you look up. Avalanche conditions are moderate below treeline so we will evaluate as we go. Should be a nice day. Make sure you pack a thermos and lots of clothing layers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
