    Luxury accommodations for Downieville...   

    Please read the registration info. and register early, or send me an email with your attendance, lodging and T-shirt plans. We need to know how many of you are coming, and where you plan to stay!

    NOTE: One of the cabin guests will be unable to make it, leaving a bed free as of Wed. Sept. 20. First come first served! Floor/yard space at Lloyd's is probably all taken as well. Contact Lloyd by email or phone (see below) to find out.

    I have booked two cabins in Truckee, similar to what we had here in 2004. In fact one of them's the same one! Contact me if you would like to share in the expense of a cabin, which will be considerably cheaper than a hotel room, no more than $120 per person for the whole weekend! The group experience at the cabins has always been fun, and it makes it easier to carpool to the rides. Half price if you're sleeping on the floor.

    These cabins are basically houses with several bedrooms, sofabeds, etc. More details on the cabins to follow. Each has at least two bathrooms (showers).

    Cabin reservations will be first come, first served. The final cost will be determined by dividing cabin cost by the number of guests, and charging a smaller amount to anyone who doesn't get a bed. We will check out of the cabins on Sunday morning, but if you need to stay somewhere Sunday night we may be able to work something out.

    Cabin directions:
    They will either be posted here, or sent individually to everyone who's reserved in the cabins. I haven't yet figured out how we'll divide people up. One cabin has three bedrooms, each containing queen bunk beds. Weird? Yes. The other has a mix of twin and queens.

    Space at the Johnson house is not reserved unless you request it. Give Lloyd Johnson a call at 530-587-4728 or an . 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?
    Bring money for a hotel. The people who planned ahead and made their requests in advance deserve to have the hot water.

    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 down the road from Lloyd's house. There are also a Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express.

    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. To search wider, include Reno, but note this is about 45 mins. from Lloyd's house.
