Hey folks found this site after a search for Elko and a few other cities in Nevada . I grew up in Carson City but have been gone for a few decades . We did live in Dayton Valley from 98'-01' and stupidly sold out and went to Oregon and now Missouri .
Does Elko have any Dog Training Clubs (Obedience,Agility etc.) , Veterans clinic ? What areas besides Spring Creek would be good to live in ? Sorry,,,,,,,,, NO H.O.A.'s for us ! How is the well water in the region ?
Do you need to worry about chemicals from the mines leaching into the water table ?
We love the High Desert , 4x'ing , rock hunting , camping fishing etc.
I hear that the Ruby Marshes are basically closed to motorized boats etc. Is that true ? I spent almost 2 weeks there in 75' fishing and camping . Best Bass fishing ever !
We're considering Elko for the milder temps (yes , we do know about the winters ) easier to stay warm than cool IMHO . We're sick and tired of the heat and humility (often near 120* late summer with humidity), ice storms , tornadoes , ticks , chiggers and Copper Heads and a host of molds and fungus .Missouri,great place to be .

Hey, No dog People ? We looked in the Yellow Pages but no luck .
Does Elko have a Race Track ( Circle Track ) ?
Last time up that way Carlin only had one flashing light ! Would like to get a pulse on Elko . I'm a transplant from L.A. in 68 ' . Nevada is our home . We even know how to pronounce "Nevada"

I don't know of any dog training clubs. You might try calling Brebeau Kennels (775)738-2108. They offer obedience training and would likely know of any local clubs.

We don't have an active race track. Nearest Veterans clinic is in Salt Lake City.

There are number of decent areas to live (with no HOA) outside of town limits but still close enough to be convenient. Adobe Hills, Kittridge Canyon, Ryndon, Elburz, Osino, etc.

As far as well water purity goes I'm east of town and have a well. Water quality is good. Last time I had it tested (approx 2yrs ago) there were no disturbing ingredients present.

Hope this helps.

I'm about 15mi east of Elko. Close to Halleck. No arsenic whatsoever. Fairly high mineral content but nothing unhealthy.

Gas is high. $3.06/gal for mid grade yesterday.
