For those that have never been to Wüste, it is a must attend event. And if you're like myself, you'll love it and go every year! The dates for Wüste this year is June 1-3, 2012. And they moved it back to the Palace Station! The rough details are to leave on Thursday the 31st, Stay one night in Sacramento, meet up with SacWater, then head to Barstow to join the main convoy to arrive in Vegas on Friday night in time to join the festivities.
I started to put this cruise together basically to create a guide to the PNW peeps that want to make the trek down. But as I started the initial planning, I decided that it needs to be more than just a drive down. So I thought we could add a few events to it. Making it a poker run was the first idea. Raffling off a few prizes along the way was another idea. So that is what I will leave open to everybody. Give me some feedback on what everybody would like and we'll make that happen.
What you need:
1- A car
2- A co-driver is recommended.
3- A walkie talkie is strongly recommended! Not only for informational value, but for entertainment as well.
Wüste Information:Everything you need to find about the event itself can be found on their website.
Along with reservation details for the Palace Station.
A 2 queen room is $65.99/night. If you share a room with a few friends it makes it fairly cheap.
I will be giving printed directions and a Wüste or Büste sticker to everyone in Woodburn. Sticker colors will be decided at a later date.
