We officially will be going with Plan 1.
My Club is going to be running the Con' and Fordyce from Aug. 25th-Sept. 3rd as well, maybe we'll manage to cross paths. Our Wagonmaster hasn't hashed out the details, but we know that We'll Be There. I'll fill you in as I get our itinerary nailed down so we can either meet up or stay out of each others way. I have a feeling we're not going to be the only groups "Runnin' the Con'" on that week. It'd be nice to meet The Wet Wheelers face to face, and any other Crawler folks, too.
Epic trip in the making. I am so excited I can hardly stand it.
I wish i was able to go
What are You doing instead again?
My house is about 30 minutes drive to eagle lakes/cisco side of Fordyce! if I can get my fj done I would love to come. even if not I have lots of parking and tools if you guys are in need of repair when the trip goes down let me know. I have done quite a few parts runs out to Fordyce as well if trail breakdowns occur.
also if you guys want to park tow rigs at my house instead of Cisco I bet we can squeeze in 3-4 trucks and trailers. it will save you some time on the route in alsohttps://www.google.com/maps/dir/Renton,+WA/Shebley+Rd,+Grass+Valley,+CA/Loon+Lake+Campground,+Pollock+Pines,+CAemail@example.com,-126.3451262,6z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m20!4m19!1m5!1m1!1s0x549008cc03bb6f23:0xcd42b24716babb9f!2m2!1d-122.2170661!2d47.4828776!1m5!1m1!1s0x809b745d5af8e9e5:0xf1327d014c5e3a1!2m2!1d-120.9650894!2d39.167099!1m5!1m1!1s0x809a2d320c35cb15:0x3eaa7a7e8567e510!2m2!1d-120.3190898!2d38.9808264!3e0i live right off hwy 174 which turns into hwy 20 that cuts over from I80 to 99/5 to head back to washington. I would definitely not park a tow rig at eagle lakes. way too many break ins and vandalism there. there are also some anti wheelers known to vandalize tow rigs in that parking lot.I would suggest running rubicon from loon to Tahoe then head up 89 to meadow lakes and run Fordyce down to eagle lakes then out and home if you have tow rigs.
I also like this idea. I might leave the group for the Tahoe portion. We have family near and this would give us an opportunity to spend the day with them.
Alright I'm going to run it by Travis and then shore it up as the new schedule. Mark me and you should probably make reservations.
I agree. Any ideas of what place?
That is still a pretty Aggressive schedule but I think you guys are smart leaving a day in the middle for some clean up and bolt tightenening before hitting the next trail. I am assuming having Labor Day also gives you a day buffer to get home just Incase. I have never run the two trails back to back but they both get pretty dusty. Both have creeks and rivers for washing up in but August can still be hot too.
Going to put Jesse's vacation request form in today. See if We can get Him enough time off to make the Rubicon trail portion then head home, With His schedule He will only need two days off to make it happen. Being a new Job I would say it's a 50/50 for him.
Fordyce would be more rewarding....
