The National Rally
has now been held in Colorado and Kentucky, So its only natural that the ‘04 rally
be held in California.
I propose that somewhere in the northern Sierras, say Grayeagle,CA in June.
Grayeagle is located just off Cal. Hwy 70 about 50 miles northwest of Reno, NV. Its centrally located north to south from the Canadian and Mexican Boarders and easily reached from all points in the western states.
Highway 70 going right through Eastern Plumas County has been designated a Scenic By-Way from Hallelujah JCT. (395/70) to Orville.
Highway 49 the route through the Gold Country and Touching into Eastern Plumas County is also a Scenic Highway and By-Way.
Eastern Plumas County is the east and south gateways to Plumas County. Located an hour north of Truckee (Lake Tahoe) on Highway 89, an hour northwest of Reno, Nevada on Highway 395 to Highway 70, and an hour northeast of Sierra City on Highway 49 to Highway 89.
There are numerous RV parks to chose from and lots to see and do from gold mines, golf, a railroad museum where you can drive a real diesel locomotive, fishing, fine dinning, lakes, hiking,etc, etc.

The park features an indoor-outdoor museum of early mining equipment; (it takes you back to reliving the gold mining days with relics and living history reenacted by costumed docents.)

Housed in a former Western Pacific diesel shop, the museum has approximately 12,000 feet of track. The boasts over 85 freight, caboose and passenger cars.
