Overnight July 4th Rubicon
Jul 3 @ 8:00 am – Jul 4 @ 8:00 pm

Hey guys, I am doing an overnight Rubicon run with some of the crawlers from the NorCal 4×4 facebook page. Plan below:


Meet at Loon Lake at 9am, Tuesday July 3. Wheel in to either Buck or Springs depending on pace and crowds. Out Caddy on July 4th (this might change, because going through tahoe on the 4th of july is terrible, but so would going against the flow of traffic back to loon lake).


It is guaranteed to be slow pace, with plenty of entertainment if you like people watching. It will be busy on the trail. Be mentally prepared lol


Club requirements plus 35’s and 1 locker and a winch.

Barrett Lake – Day Run @ Fresh pond Chevron
Jul 25 @ 8:00 am – 6:00 am
Details in thread. Meet at Freshpond Chevron at 8 am.
Barrett Lake Weekend Trip! July 27-29
Jul 27 – Jul 29 all-day

This run will be in to Barrett Lake for a weekend of camping/hiking/etc.

35s, 1 locker, winch, recovery points. 85″ total width or less.

This is going to be an interesting trip, as I will lead a group in on Friday morning, and then come back out by myself Friday evening. The group that stays up there on Friday will reserve campsites for the rest of the group coming in on Saturday. Friday morning group will meet at the Chevron in Fresh Pond at 8am.

We will need someone to “take charge” leading those in on Saturday that want to come in Saturday.

We will also need someone to “take charge” for coming out on Sunday.

Both, should, preferably, have experience on this trail if possible (not necessary though).

While at Barrett Lake on Saturday (or sunday too), there are 3 geocaches, and a great plane crash to check out. The plane crash is roughly a 2mile hike from the campsites.

What you need to do:
– Say if you are going on Friday or Saturday.
– If you can lead the group OUT on Sunday.
– If you are going in Saturday, can you lead the group IN?

The trail GPS tracks are in the link below, so there is no way you should get lost… just need someone willing to take charge on spotting people through the 3 difficult sections on Saturday and Sunday. I will take care of getting everyone through on Friday.

Is that complicated enough? lol×4-trail-review/
