We are headed south to the Salton Sea for our first Southern California Adventure. This weekend is broken up into two parts. Day 1 is a long trail run that loops around the east side of the lake to see several sights in the area. Day 2 is all about fun and goofing off in the home of desert pre-runners of Ocotillo Wells.

We will be using one hotel as a base of operation to do the out and back trail runs. For those who wish to camp you are welcome to find a place to pitch a tent. For those bring family members who do not want to go on the trails, there will be a group seeing local area attractions for kids and adults alike.

Area 51 Vegas to Vegas - May 18-19

**Hotel deadline is April 27 for group rate

**Event deadline is May 15

[url="http://raddrives.com/catalog/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=80"]Register on the club site. www.raddrives.com[/url]

We are heading back to Area 51 to see if we can find the elusive flying saucers. In 2016, we had the strangest weather with snow, hail, and monsoon rains which lead us to call the event early for safety concerns. This year, we are headed back to finish the trails we started and see if aliens do exist. In addition, we are changing it up and starting and ending in Las Vegas, and we will have many new trails to explore for returning participants. This is a second chance to see Area 51 if you missed the first go around.

Planned Trip Summary:
Starting in Las Vegas, NV, we will head North along the border of the Groom Lake test range, AKA Area 51. Day 1 will be the sightseeing day to make stops at the usual tourists' spots: Little Alie-Inn, and Groom Lake Road Gate, to name a few. There are a few other stops planned for those in attendance to get out and stretch and maybe see a UFO.. or two. The end of the day will be in Tonopah NV for sleep and food.

Day 2 will head back to Las Vegas. Major stops will be at several old mine camps and a stop at Devils Hole.
* Hotels are billed at a group rate with taxes included.
* Whole Foods boxed lunch includes sandwich, pasta salad, fruit, cookie, and soda.
* Subway boxed lunch includes sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie, and soda.

Pre Event - May 18
