If you are serious fuck yeah. That'd be perfect, start the trail on sunday when others should be leaving. If we do this I might fab up some tube doors to make this more fun.
I'm serious. The dates I gave are wrong though. As great as they would be I was looking at Junes calendar when I posted them. I have Friday-Sun off and that's not really that flexible sadly. So we'd have to do it over a weekend but we could head up on a Thursday night. I work in Mammoth and get off at 530. It's a 4 hour drive to the trail head from Mammoth.

So pick any Friday-Sunday that works for you. The only one I can't do is the 4th weekend. Let's do this soon.

EDIT: I also can't do the weekend of the 19th-21st. I almost forgot about me wifes b-day. I'm a dumb ass. How about the July 12th-14th?

Hell yeah. If you get Thursday off and drive up leisurely I can probably blast out of work a little early. It's light till at least 830 so we might even be able to get some miles in Thurday night. Have you run it before? I haven't and have no clue where good camp spots are. That info will be easy enough to find though. lol

Yeah I'll take Thursday-Sunday off. It'll be a 9hour drive for me, hopefully the weather is clear the whole weekend and I'll fab some tube doors and and run them all the way up there.

Already got a map with the obstacles from https://www.rubicontrailfoundation.org/visit/map/

Sweet. I'll get some parts on the rig before the trip. I need to get spindles, SPC upper BJ's, and LBJ's. I'll keep them in the rig and have backups in case my welded spindles fail. lol


I'm sure you do. Got that clutch fixed yet?

There's also a Jeep club doing a run with 70 jeeps. We could come from the opposite way so we don't get stuck behind them....just have to get passed them.

Holy shit. Let's just run it the normal way from Loon but start Thursday night. That'll put as ahead of them and without any need to get by them.

Looks like they are starting from Tahoma, we should just cross paths with them if we start at Loon Lake. Also I don't know how they could run 75 jeeps on a trail, maybe not all of them actually run the trail, or only run part of it? That's a shit load of vehicles on there even if they break up in smaller groups and stagger leave times.

@4runner DOA

Did this really need it's own thread? Having it in the Dusy thread kinda kept it hidden. That way we don't have to say no to a bunch of people. lol

Since it's out in the open anyone wanting to join the answer is maybe. @Tetten is much better at researching trips then I am so I'll let him vet anyone who wants in.

@Hank fix your shit yet?
@Mike_taco4x4 Fix your shit yet?
@AssBurns Fix your shit yet?
@4runner DOA I'm pretty sure there's bypasses. lol

The Rubicon probably has as many IFS vehicles as the Dusy on it, I doubt anyone else outside of our group would go.
