Death Valley Noob Rally, who'd like to go?

I'm planning on going to the Noob Rally again this year (details here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=841673 ) I'm taking my full size pickup with my WR in the back and I have room for another bike and rider to go along. Share gas, driving and probably one night motel each way (driving is optional). Anybody in the Lower Mainland/Vancouver Island area interested drop me a PM. If there's a bunch of interest I can tow a trailer easily but someone would have to bring a car. This is a really fun rally with a bunch of great peeps, definitely a good time.

Looks like a great event - and a great way to get introduced to the trails in Death Valley.

See you there. A group of us was already planning a trip down starting a week earlier, I didn't even know there was a rally. Good thing I found this post or we might have gotten punted when everyone else showed!

Planning is still in the early stages but so far we're looking at a couple trucks and a trailer and heading down to DV for some riding then finish off with a couple days of fun in Vegas before we come back up. We'll likely be there on the Monday before the rally, departure date is still in the air pending some holiday time away from work for one of the others. It should be a good time, brand new experience as none of us have ridden there before.

How can you go twice and it still be considered a noob rally

Just a note -this rally is capped at 200 and they're already over 160 so if you're sitting on the fence you don't have a lot of time.

I believe that's been done but there's always last minute cancellations. If you get in on the wait list now you won't have any trouble getting a spot.
It looks right now like I'll be heading down on the 19th. Jimmy Lewis is going to do a 2 day course the weekend before and I'd like to take that. I took his 1 day course last time and it helped me a lot.
