    Sierra Nevada Land Ops - Finally!

    IMPORTANT NOTE: DATE HAS CHANGED

    SIERRA NEVADA MOUNTAIN OP
    Land Ops in Monache Meadows and Sherman Pass
    SEPT 13-15, 2013 (OFFICIAL EVENT DAY IS THE 14TH)

    FREE REGISTRATION


    OPEN INVITATION
    This is a 4x4 Nav-Comm Run (both day and night runs);
    Nav-Comm is navigation and communications. You are NOT required to have a
    radio or GPS, but you will end up on a team that does. The adventure ops are run
    with a net control station at base camp that monitors the progress of multiple teams and
    assists with radio relays as necessary. You will be driving, navigating, and signaling other off road teams, giving and receiving instructions that you find in previously hidden geotactical caches all while exploring the many trails around the area. The course is "unknown" until you begin to run it. To top it off we are having our very popular "Night Op", a great chance to participate in a unique sensory deprivation offroad challenge.

    This is area is stunning & beautiful for exploring.
    All vehicle makes and models welcome.

    This event sounds like a lot of fun, but maybe not 4-5 hours of driving to get there fun. Do any of these Land OP events happen in the Northern Sierra's? However my perspective of what a long drive to get the National Forrest could be skewed, since the is one out my back door.

    I agree...that's a long ways to go. Maybe the next one could be a bit closer to Reno.

    Great minds think alike. We're looking to do a trip in the Northern Sierra's soon. First a recon (scouting for course planning) then an event within 3-6 months of the recon. We have an organizer up in your area that has been doing a lot of work scouting areas for our unique terrain requirements. The trips are very labor intensive to setup. Think of it a mini Trophy event without the entry fee.
