Free publicity is good, but you need to provide enough information to make it useful for our visitors. Be sure to include as many of these as possible: the event's name, dates of the event, where it will be held, cost and how to buy tickets (or if it's free, let us know), contact person and phone number, website address. A brief description of what it's about is also good. Disclaimer: Because of time and space constraints, I cannot guarantee to publish every event submitted. Tell Us About Your Event

Come learn Truckee’s logging history with a tour of the area’s logging railroads. We’ll carpool north on highway 89, swing off the highway and see what’s left of the Hobart Mill’s locomotive shop, long abandoned logging car bodies, old trestles, and the traces of roadbeds of the Hobart Southern, the Hobart Estates [Sierra Nevada Wood and Lumber Company], the Boca and Loyalton Ry. {later the Clover Valley lumber Co.], and the Verdi Lumber Co railroads. We recommend four wheel drive vehicles, hiking gear; good boots or hiking shoes are a must. Cameras are recommended. This is a backwoods adventure, so come dressed comfortably and prepared for an expedition , We will hike a couple of miles [broken into smaller segments], and the trip will cover 40-50 miles of paved highway, USFS system roads, some rather doubtful 4 wheel-drive trails , and old railroad roadbed. Please bring whatever food and drink you'd like to have for a long afternoon. This trip usually takes from 4-6 hours, depending
