: NO OFFENSE TAKEN PARDNER, BUT WHAT IS IT YOU WERE EXPECTING OR LOOKING FOR? WHAT EVER IT IS I CAN ASSURE YOU GOLD POINT HAS IT. WE ARE THE FARTHEST THING FROM A CALICO. FOR THOSE WHO DON'T WANT TO BE ENTERTAINED IN THE EVENINGS, AFTER RIDING AROUND THE DESERT LOOKING AT GHOST TOWNS AND MINING CAMPS, BY LIVE MUSIC AND SUCH IN THE SALOON, THE SOLITUDE OF THE DESERT OFFERS MUCH. THE BEAUTY OF GOLD POINT IS THAT IT OFFERS MANY CHOICES.

: There is always the chance that some may be offended by the additional activities that the Sheriif includes in his desert gathering. More times than not he chooses appropriate balance. Ther is something about getting the opportunity to visualize a few wild west skits.



: It reminds me of the visits out East to Gettysberg and many Civil War cities that still provide reencatments of the many battles. It enhances the visit and allows some of the visitors a free history lesson.



: As for the music, the songs may be different but it was part of the old culture. There was music and dancing. It is up to us to make sure we keep it in balance. Moderation rules!



: I've been to many of Gold Point's "weekends" over the last 12 years and have been pleased with the authenticity that the good Sheriff tried to maintain.



: See you there!!!!

: "CALICOIZATION"? I don't think so. They don't have any souviner shops, Choo Choo Trains, or kiddie rides, or any of those usual "Tourist Trap" type things up there.

: Just a lot of Good Old Folks who like the outdoors, a bit of history, making new friends, and just relaxing and having a good time.

: As far as the Gunfights, I enjoy them. Lets me play Cowboys again just like when we were kids except with more noise and smoke than my "Roy Rogers" cap gun.

: Were you there during "Wiley Days"? When they had gunfights, skits, a parade and FIREWORKS? Now that was a PARTY!

: Keep up the good work Sheriff Stone, I'm counting the days!

: Gold Point is still lived in by a couple of permanent residents. It has always been populated, that's why there's a paved Nevada state highway and electricity there to town.



: As part of the Ralley, Herb plans on taking everyone to the satellite of real, unrestored and uninhabited ghosts nearby; including Stateline Mill, Oriental, Sylvania, Palmetto, and maybe Lida.



: By the way, I'm not going to the Ralley. But not because of shootouts or restoration. I'm going to be doing some research and photography at real, unrestored ghost towns in Death Valley.

: If remoteness and solitude is what you seek you dont have to go far from GP. Just around the bend is where the pavement ends and the great emptiness of tne Nevada desert begins. So leave your pre-misconceptions at home and prepare to have more fun than should ever be allowed without an E-ticket.
