Luck Strike Trail run Feb 24th
 
So with all my talk of the mines there on Mount Charleston I figure it might be good to get out and hit a few trails.

The only one I am going to hit is Lucky Strike Mine. I have not seen it but have heard about it and have been on the trail but it has been several years now.
This trail shouldn't be too bad. Expect some pin striping, if it is the trail I remember as it get a bit narrow in one or two sections. I do not believe there is anything major on this trail, however I have been wrong before. :oops:

I am planning on getting out a fair amount, checking out the area and just enjoying the outdoors. While this should be an easy trail, recovery equipment is always a good thing to have. CB's are HIGHLY recommended but if you do not have one that just means we will end up sticking you in-between a couple rigs that do. BTW, we will talk smack about you. :D

Also, due to the fact that we may find/explore a mine I recommend not bringing any pets. It is totally up to you though. I try to always take mine but will be leaving mine at home for this trip.

Don't forget a lunch/snacks and plenty of water. Top off your gas before you head out. Always better to be safe then out of gas.

A few last things that I am particular on...
1-Several of the guys I run with are either LEO, active Military or retired. If you have issues with any one of those, you are not welcome.
2-Some of us carry, either open or concealed. If you have an issue with that, do not come along. :)
3-You are responsible for your rig and it's occupants.
4-Know your RIG and YOUR driving abilities. If you do not think you can do something, DON'T DO IT. Many of us have been on the trails for a long time and will gladly help spot but ultimately it is your call.
5-We are out to enjoy the outdoors. Don't be a dick and trash up the area. If you see something dangerous, speak up.
6-Have fun and relax.

Meeting place: Kyle Canyon Turn Off-gravel area on the right.
Time: 9 am meet with a head out at 9:30.

If you have questions-shoot me a PM. I will be posting in several forums.

Have a couple guys from Warmachines that are thinking of coming along too. As the date gets closer I will post an estimated number of people coming.

I also have a extra person looking for a seat if possible. Retired CCWer that is in the NW. If anyone that is going has an extra seat and is willing please let me know. I already have someone running shotgun.
Thank you.

Lol sounds right.

Looks like there will be at least 4 people going in a couple of rigs. I have numerous maybes. So, if you want to get out and enjoy some cool mountain air with some great people, and great times, come on out.


Here are the coordinates via google earth---Meeting place
36.326598, -115.316990

Don't forget to bring a lunch and water. The run should not take long but like I said, I am one that likes to relax out there. If you come out and need to head back, that is fine too. Open group for people to come and go.

See you out there.

No prob.

Had a great time!! Located Lucky Strike Mine but did not hike up to it. It is a good hike to get to the mouth of it. Between being cold, windy and most of the group having between 1-3 hours sleep we passed, lol. The tailings were not that big but we did locate the old shed and the can graveyard. We also checked out 2 other mines and located the double or possibly triple arch on the way out. Got some pictures of them. Two are arches the third might be but were not positive. Anyway, those that went, thank you and those that missed it, you missed a great time.

I'm glad it went well. I went on a camping trip run with the desert wranglers.
