    Derek, I'm gonna be there early, 5:15 or so, and may as well get hiking. When you get to the gate, give me a call at[masked] and we'll figure a logistic at that point.

    I'm going to park outside the gate so I can bomb back down the Cable Line at the end. Not sure when I'll actually get there tonight, so don't wait around for me.

      Sounds good, Derek. If we do hook up, maybe we'll put one car at the parking lot and one at the gate.

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.
