THE FIRE IS MOSTLY SOUTH OF I 80 IN THE MT. ROSE WILDERNESS AREA AND SOME PRIVITE PROPERTY. DONT THINK THE 200 GOES THROUGH THERE BUT I DON'T KNOW THE ROUTE.THERE IS A LOT OF SMOKE THOUGH.

Brian, Are you still going to Reno? My dad and brother were planning on going too, now that the ride is cancelled we have decided to go to Kennedy Meadows for the weekend, I mean you've already made arrangements with work and family members to get the time off dont waste a great weekend and not go, if you guys decide not to go to Boomtown you should join us in Kennedy Meadows, my family has been riding up there for over 20 years and we know the area very well, this would be a good time for someone who has always wanted to ride there but dont really know the trails, as my dad is an awsome guide and great rider..

I dont know where you guys are driving from but if it's feasable to get there we would love to have you guys.......
