Rally at Sweetwater Summit NFSdispersed area

Thursday June 23 – Sunday June 26, 2011

RSVP for rally - Hosts – Don and Gail Williams

3 Day rally for SNU and WBCCI members. Visitors welcome. SNU Board meeting on Saturday open to all.

Special Event – Amateur Radio Field Day – Check out the web page about the SNU hams

Location - The area is located on highway 338 in Nevada, which comes out of Bridgeport as California hiway182. If you are heading north on Nevada 338, at the Sweetwater Summit there is a large parking area to the right with a weather gathering station at the south end. From the southern end of the parking area, there is a short dirt road that goes behind a small knoll where the area flattens out and is an excellent place for a large group and large rigs.

The picture below shows the weather station and the turnoff to the rally site

Coordinates for SNU rallies - The SNU now provides the means for you to put its rally sites on your electronic map. If you don't have a GPS or a PND or a computer with a mapping program, you can still take the file and use it to find coordinates on your paper maps.

Boondocking SNU Style - SNU rallies are a great way to experience camping “off grid” Our usual rally sites have no electricity or other hookups. Water is frequently not available. For the SNU, this type of camping enhances the experience and we are never without all the comforts of home

What to expect at an SNU rally - Never been to an SNU rally? This page will give you information on arrival and departure times, meals, activities, and other information that will help make the rally an enjoyable experience.
