Planning 2023 WTHO's. Need a little help.

October 29, 2022 12:09PM avatar
I have had more input from folks but need a little more clarity in the help. I have had a couple more location suggestions, so let me know what you think about these suggestions / comments about Outings.

1.. Most have asked to NOT hold it on Mothers Day or Fathers Day, or Memorial Day Weekend or Labor Day Weekend. Let me know what you think via a post of drop me an e-mail.

2.. More than 9-out-of-10 like the 5-Day Outing schedule from Wednesday thru Sunday.

3.. Many have an interest in Gold Nugget Hunting at Rye Patch Nevada and also checking out ghost towns that are drivable from Lovelock or Rye Patch. Interest? Anyone know the typical weather for that area come spring?

4.. I have had suggestions for sites in Eastern Wyoming, SE Idaho, and somewhere in Nevada but have found they were mainly on Private Property. There have been suggestions for old town sites near Frisco Utah and staying in Milford to locate sites within that area drive. Also have had requests to check out old ghost towns like Cumberland in Wyoming and base it out of Evanston. Had a couple of requests about places near Ely Nevada but talked to a couple of people last week who were near there but had bad roads and little success. Anyone know this area? Still get a request or two for any place in Central Oregon or Eastern Oregon and would like to hear reader's comments.

5.. Also have had several people suggest a general base-point and then let everyone attending do their own research to figure out the type of place they want to hunt and venture out on their own or a small team to hunt. A big enough town to have food, gas, motel/RV Park options and in an area for folks to 'roam'. Could be sites to offer all the local area hunting plus ghost towns, mining or logging sites, railroad activity, or pioneer and military camps, towns, homesteads, etc. around the general area. Any interest in that type of WTHO?

6.. I still haven't had a single good site suggestion for places east of Wyoming or Colorado, nor California or Arizona or Washington. Open for any good ideas and prefer them e-mailed to me at either of my addresses in my Signature below. Need to work on planning for one early and one later WTHO for 2023 so all the help you can share is appreciated. November is soon to arrive and time is winding down to get things ready to announce.

Kickindirt, are you referring to Del's suggestion or the 16th WTHO plans?

Okay, here are my comments on Del's suggested site.
