Laugh LA to Barstow to Vegas (Nov. 28-29,2008)

http://labarstowvegas.com/

I've been wanting to go on this ride for a few years now, and 2008 is it! This year is the ride's 25th anniversary and they say it's going to be a bitchin' year. I'll be doing the Barstow to Vegas section only and it's time to start planning. Rooms at the Ramada in Barstow are booked up, so I'm going to book a room at another motel down the street. Another room will be required (The Orleans Hotel/Casino) for Saturday night in Vegas. I'm looking for other FF's who are going on this ride.

Possibility for me....as long they have a nOOb route!

Great thing about this is the organizers will donate money to charitable cause!

Absolutely. They have the easy way, with optional hard ways. From what I've read and heard, expect lots of sand, and FUN!

Yes I'm in. I've done this a few years in a row now. The first leg of the race...aaah whoops! I mean RIDE is normally pretty good lots of trees (if you can do it). I get a room across from the Ramada. Second day rocks, sand and desert access roads. The hard loop near the end (Red Rock Canyon) probably the best part of the ride. Got a flat tire last year so ended up riding out with the sweep on my ass, but the full moon was awesome! This is alot of fun. I stay with friends and family in Vegas so your on your own there.

Anyone else riding this one?

I’ve been wanting to do this ride for a few years now but have been unsuccessful due to scheduling conflicts. However, 2008 is finally my year to attend, and it’s the 25th Anniversary of this fine ride! I plan on doing Saturday’s ride from Barstow to Vegas. The Ramada Inn is completely booked so I may book a room down the street somewhere. Another room will be required for Saturday night’s stay in Vegas. Sunday morning, haul ass home to beat the crazy traffic on the I-15.

Anyone else have any interest in this ride?

-Rich

Dang, that’s really strange…for some reason I mistakenly made a double post for the same freakin’ ride!??? WTF? I’m going to ask the forum moderator to delete this one.

Here's the l ink to the correct one:

Dude, I just saw what you mean by the double post. HTF did that happen? I screwed up somewhere down the line, huh? Anyways, I PM'd the moderator asking him to delete that one. Sorry 'bout the confusion amigos!
