    Karie is working on getting the new site up as we speak. Should be up by the this weekend barring any problems. If you need an immediate question answered, you can give me a call at 530-401-0800.

    Thanks Eric

    Mark Hawley is doing a GX470, FJC and 120 run. If Steve is too full, which I expect will be the case with it being the 30th, you may want to consider that one as well.

    No, that run is going to be packed. Since it is your first time, I would recommend the Breakfast Run. They take 2 days and camp at Buck also, but the Run will likely not be as full and easier for them to support you as needed. Either that or partnering up with another few rigs with experience on the Rubicon and go Renegade with them as a plan B.

    Hey guys -

    I haven't rolled dry dirt with you all for 4-5yrs & frankly caught an invite when I swore I was up in Canada fishing, but what's the "role-call" total if a 'Lackey/slacker' like myself (& bring my 20yo nephew)- wanted to come on down & beat up my junk?

    -Is there still room inside the 20 rig convoy? -I'm good to make some jam-n-slam plans, or is this now essentially a done deal?

    -Also, so since I've got some plans over the upcoming weekend - when really are you all cleared & out from trails so I can loosely plan my "limp home / tilt-deck AAA towtruck ride" -so they can dump my 80 back in my yard?

    I'm under no illusion so I just want to plan my "worst case scenario" if I beat junk & need to make tracks N for the upcoming weekend (a Thurs eve call - time).

    I'm trying to pencil some plans, it'd be great if me & bucko could get down, vacation time & such allowing.

    ----Also, are dogs allowed? -- Someone stated recently dogs got a 'stinkeye' from some place (Nat'l parks? - I forget). What's the story there? Issues / no-go on mutts?

    You can always sign up and be part of the fun. Hope you do.

    The Event is over Sunday and most people are up Cadillac and back to Lake Tahoe by Sunday afternoon.

    Dogs are fine on a leash, always lots of them there. I've taken mine several times. Though honestly, it's more fun without the dog since there's so much in and out of the truck, rock stacking etc.

    Hope you don't need to take a flat bed all the way back to PNW! Most people do just fine. Keep your inputs easy, and your knuckle nuts tight and you'll be fine.

    Sir,

    Thanks for the offer. I am good now. Most of my initial questions have already been answered. Looking forward to signing up for the WAGON RUN and attending my first RUBITHON.

    Is air evacuation going to be included again? They are bugging me to re-enlist, but I won't if my reg fee is going to include it.

    Wait, - what?

    Is this for real, or an inside joke?

    I swear California is on fire more often than a car in any Fast & Furious movie. :poof::poof:

    Medical evacuation in case of an emergency. It's been part of registration the last several years. Seen it used a few times too.

    Are you saying just for the time on the Rubicon for this event or only at the group site?

    It is provided for everyone, for the entire event, Tuesday through Sunday:

    "After much thought concerning the number of times we have had to call in an air ambulance to our event, this year we have chosen to ensure every participant will be covered by AirCareMed Network (formally CalStar.) This will cover every person that is a part of Rubithon while they are on the Rubicon Trail from Tuesday, June 19th through Sunday June 24th, 2018. It will not cover you coming to or going home from the event. To do this you may notice we have had to raise the cost of the event by $10."

    For all Rubithon participants during the event. Again, it will only cover during the event while on the trail. It will cover to and from. This comes in handy for those that are bringing a guest that doesn't normally wheel in remote areas. For those of us that do, this insurance is better than any equipment we put on our rig..... followed by a ham radio!

    We have the registration almost ready to go live. Our website was swapped over to the TLCA server and had to make many changes.... for the better I might add. Karie has done an outstanding job and we just found a few small things to fix before going live with it. If anyone has issues with the new version of the registration, please let me know ASAP as I don't doubt I may have missed something!

    Thanks for your patients. It will be worth it!

    Happy to announce on line registration is now open. This is a complete upgrade from prior year's registration so if you find any issues, please email me at chairman@rubithon.com or call me at 530-401-0800.

    You can now pay directly on the site with a credit card or still can use PayPal or send in a check. Also, it works with Windows or Macs and can also be completed from you mobile devices.

    I'll be posting on the other forums later today.

    I'm getting excited and trying to plan out my trip. Maybe a little early, but can you blame me?!? As a first-timer that is going to trailer his rig up, where would you recommend leaving it? My 4Runner does have plates, but it's not totally street legal (tires stick out past the fenders by a lot & no mud flaps). My thought was to see if a hotel would let me park there for a week, but I'm not sure which side I should be on. Does anyone have any recommendations?
