MULTI-DAY TRIP: Mountains & BBQ (Reno area)

  • to

  • John Ascuaga's Nugget

    1100 Nugget Ave, Sparks, NV (map)

  • I'll be in touch with you regarding details like where we're meeting and potential for carpooling.
  • Every Labor Day, Reno hosts the best-of-the-west rib cook-off a six day event with some of the best BBQ around.  This will be my fourth time attending.  We'll plan to miss the first day, instead starting the drive up late Wednesday after work, and finishing it Thursday enroute to that day's peak.  If others are able and want to get there Wednesday, they are free to do so.  Those who want to are free to fly to and/or from Reno to fit their schedules.  As the event gets closer it will become clear what room exists in vehicles and whether rentals for the fly-ins are needed.  Reno locals are welcome to join for whatever pieces as their schedule or interest allows.

    Further, the Reno area has an impressive collection of great peaks to climb.

    The plan (each day) is to do a hike in the morning to early afternoon, then head over to the BBQ fest for dinner, enjoying the free entertainment, then sleeping before repeating the same agenda the next day. The one exception to the rule will be Monday (Labor Day), where will drive home after the hike, missing the BBQ on the last day.

    Also important to note- we'll be camping in the same place throughout, so we only need to pitch a tent and setup camp once.

    The specific agenda will be determined closer to the event.Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments.
