Great to see a “West” 70 Series event. 👍September 2nd thru 5th
The previous “FJ45 Run” will now morph into a 70-Series camping wheeling trip.
The event will take place at Meadow Lake which is northwest of Truckee.
We have reserved the two large Meadow Knolls Group Camp Sites. They'll each accommodate up to 25 people.

From I-80 at Truckee take exit Hwy 89 towards Sierraville, go approximately 14.7 miles. Turn left at Forest Service Road 07 aka Fiberboard Road. Look for sign to Webber Lake and travel 9.5 miles. Turn left onto Forest Service Road 86 aka Meadow Lake Road (dirt road) continue for 9.4 miles to reach Meadow Lake. High clearance vehicles recommended. DO NOT GPS your way there. You’ll get lost.
From Sierraville: Travel south on Hwy 89 for 11 miles to Forest Road 7. Turn right and travel west to the Meadow Lake turnoff. Turn left on Forest Road 86 which becomes Nevada County Road 843 traveling south for approximately 10 miles. Most of the route is paved, but the last few miles are unpaved and becomes very rough.
Check in is 2:00 p.m. and check out is 11:00 a.m.
Quiet Hours are from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Please do not operate generators, vehicles, audio equipment, talk loudly, or make noise that could interfere with those sleeping.
Additional fees are charged for additional vehicles when space allows.
There is a daily charge for each pet.
As always, there will be two raffles. One for prizes (you get one and only one ticket as long as you drive a cruiser to the event) and a cash raffle; the later costs $10 per ticket. So buy as many tickets as you want. We will draw one winning ticket which gets half the cash in the pot. The other half goes to the "Friends of the Rubicon". So far, we've donated about $10k altogether.
Raffle prizes?! I've been working on them.... and sent out pms, emails and phone calls to a lot of my suppliers and distributors. Prizes are trickling....
It's become somewhat customary for participants to bring a raffle prize. It can be anything and I mean ANYTHING. We've had things ranging from tools to pocketknives to amazing quilts, pillows, blankets, on-board welder, and everything in between.
If you are bringing dogs, please remember there are other people here. If your dogs bark, please camp away from others and be respectful to everyone else attending this event.
Feel free to ask questions, I know I left a bunch of info out. All rigs are welcome, you don't have to show up in a 70series, any cruiser is welcome. And we’ll even make exceptions for non-cruisers.
Hope to see you there!
