    Zack has hit the sack    

    Floor | Yard (camping) | Cabin | Hotel

    Please read the registration info. and register early. We need to know how many of you are coming, and where you plan to stay! NOTE: Cabins and floor/yard space can only be reserved by sending me an email; the check boxes on the registration form will not reserve you. See the instructions below to make your request.

    Floor:
    This means the floor at Lloyd Johnson's house in Truckee. Not just the house, but possibly in the workshop or other other outbuildings.

    As of September 15, eighteen people have requested space in the floor or yard. That means basically no hot water unless you get up reeeeeal early! Lloyd's is pretty filled up. If you have not requested floor or yard space, be prepared to be turned away.

    Floor means BYOB (bedding). Don't forget pillow and towels. For this ultra-low price you basically get space to lay down, nothing else is guaranteed. You'll love Lloyd's place as soon as you see it. Trials toys all over the yard, a trampoline, and plenty of room for cars to park.

    Space at the Johnson house is not reserved until you let us know you're coming. Give Lloyd Johnson a call at 530-587-4728, and make last-minute requests directly. Let him know the number of people, which nights you will be staying, and whether you will be indoors or out (camping).

    Yard:
    This means camping at Lloyd's house, either in your vehicle, tent, or however you like to camp. Lloyd's yard is over an acre, so there should be plenty of room. Be advised temperatures are forecast to go into the 20s at night.

    Space at the Johnson house is not reserved until you let us know you're coming. Give Lloyd Johnson a call at 530-587-4728, and make last-minute requests directly. Let him know the number of people, which nights you will be staying, and whether you will be indoors or out (camping).

    What if I just show up?
    You will probably be turned away. Space in the house and outbuildings is about maxed out. Call if you still need a place to stay.

    Cabin:
    Scot Cooper and I are renting two cabins with lots of beds, similar to what we had at Tahoe in 2000. Cabin #1 is at Northstar, and Cabin #2 is in central Truckee. It should be possible for us to ride-pool to the various rides and events from there.

    These cabins are basically houses with lots of sleeping space, generally 3 or 4 beds to a bedroom. Each has at least two bathrooms (showers).

    Cabin reservations will be first come, first served. As of September 15 we still have beds. Snooze and you might lose! The cost will be significantly less than any hotel/motel prices in the area, approximately $120 per person for Thurs-Sunday nights, or less if we get additional people. The final cost will be determined by dividing the two cabins by the number of guests. We will check out of the cabins on Sunday morning, but if you need to stay somewhere Sunday night we can help you.

    Email me to reserve cabin space. Let me know how many people, and whether any of them mind sleeping on the floor to make room for others. We'll give a big discount for floor people! It doesn't matter if you won't be there all nights, the price will be fixed based on a share of the total cost. Payment will be requested on arrival.

    Hotel:
    If you don't want to sleep right next to someone who forgot to take a shower after riding all day, there are several locations to choose from in the nearby area. This site contains a convenient listing. Truckee is closest to Lloyd's house, followed by Kings Beach, Tahoe Vista, and Incline Village. The Best Western is literally on the road between Lloyd's and Northstar.

    Another great way to find accommodations at a good price is to try Priceline.com or one of the similar services. Priceline has worked very well for us, putting us at a real nice hotel in Japan after Unicon, and at the Venetian in Las Vegas for the regular price of some of the ordinary hotels there. If you want nice, indicate 3 or more stars, and include the North Tahoe area for more choices.
