Rock Crawling at Moon Rocks
 
Went out to Moon Rocks Thurs. to punish my RC crawler a bit. I love that place. I just wish the a-holes wouldn't throw beer bottles all over and try to tear down the trees.

Nice picks, love the one with the V crack, seen lots of rigs go over there. Did you go to the comp?? I dont remember seeing your rig there.

I did not attend the comp (I have to work weekends :-(). But I like to crawl there just for fun on my days off.

Philistine, nice pics. that looks like a nice place to go crawling"thumbsup" I keep hearing about this place (moonrocks). I just need to stop working sooo much and find out how to get there.

Philistine 05-15-2008 09:35 AM

It's very easy to get there (just a few miles outside of Pyramid Lake).

If you are coming from Fallon take highway 80 north, exit Pyarmid highway in Sparks and turn right. Drive 15 miles and exit at Winnemucca Ranch Road (there is a sign): http://maps.google.com/maps?rls=en&q...=1&sa=N&tab=wl Just drive straight until you hit the dirt road and continue for another mile or two. You will see Moon Rocks on your left at a sign welcoming you to the Happy Valley OHV area: http://maps.google.com/maps?rls=en&q...=1&sa=N&tab=wl

The area is eaisly accesable by passenger car. This is probably the best spot for RC crawling anywhere around Reno. Its big with lots of steep climbs and a variety of obsticles. Tons of fun. I go out there 2-3 times a month.

This is great, I have the 27th through the 30th off, all i have to do is stop by CKRC for an extra battery pack and i'm on my way:lol:.
Philistine, thanks for the great directions "thumbsup"

Yes, I usually go there a couple times a month. Sun Valley RP is really close to Whip It Raceway and Hobby in Panther Valley where I hang out a lot. Otherwise, my favorite place in Reno is Wingfield Park, an island in the middle of the Truckee River downtown.
