    Congrats to Gordon Wood, he's the March winner of an extra grand prize raffle ticket. Get your registrations in and get those rigs ready!

    Here is a link to the online registration for all non-committee members: RUBITHON REGISTRATION | TLCA

    If you should be a committee member, you should have received an email already. If not contact me at chairman@rubithon.com and I will get it to you!

    Happy adventuring!

    Thanks! I really don't want to jam up the trail and be "that guy".

    At this point I'm kinda thinking a new gas tank skid (the oem one is pretty good coverage wise, but thin metal and raisin texture already) and some type of rear bumper protection - and some careful driving. I'm trying to figure out work schedule stuff to see if I can go. Wednesday wagon run makes it tough because I'd out almost the whole week.

    @MountNGoat shared this photo on facebook so I decided to share it here.... [​IMG]

    Original post by the US Forest service - "This photo was taken by one of our U.S. Forest Service OHV patrollers at the McKinney Rubicon trailhead, which sits near the top of the McKinney Rubicon Road on the southwest shore of Lake Tahoe. Those are the restrooms poking out of approximately 12 feet of compacted snow. Gives us a good idea of how much snow remains in the back country, and the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) is calling for more snow this weekend.

    Rain keeps coming down here in the Bay Area. If it's coming down as snow in the Sierra's then the Rubicon may not be clear until September or October. I've been on the trail in other heavy-snow years. Loon to the Springs is okay, but stuff can get sketchy on the Tahoe side where there is a lot of shade from the dense forest and the snow is packed pretty deep around big pine trees. Fingers crossed for this event happening in July as planned.
