Thanks, Eric. Since so few of us have been on this trail, having some insight is great. Dave has said that the trail is non-stop challenges.

Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to share all of that.. and I definitely hope is out there with us next year as well, either as part of the FJ Trail Team, or just a member of our club.. I for one always do a little better when he's around.

Anyone know the dates for this? I want to get this on the calendar soon.. see you at the Rally Eric.

I just sent Tony Twiddy a message to see if the dates are set yet.

Stacy and I were talking about doing Rubithon sometime in the next few years, if everyone is heading out next year, we would seriously plan for it too...

Can you say "Lockers!"

We should look in to a car hauler. It might be a little more expensive, but nicer in the long run. Some of us could conceivably fly out and pick up the trucks, wheel, drop the trucks off and fly home.

I thought only Jeeps and Buggys got towed to the trails

My other club (MNToyx4's) used to contract a car hauler to haul rigs to the BHCC. I can't remember what the cost was but it wasn't too bad.

I recently found out that my boss has a brother who lives near the Rubicon and he owns a cruiser. We have had some discussions about going out there for some wheeling. We just bought a company truck so the reality of towing my rig out there isn't too far outside of the realm of possibility.

Dillys, Browns, Nichols, Fisher and I had 'em hauled last time we went. Pricey but worth it. One thing about transport is you usually have to drop them off at the company a week ahead of time and pick up a few day's after you return. I plan on taking Wildrice.

Dave is 100% correct that it is nonstop obstacles. The only changes in the trail are the severity of the obstacles. It is a fun trail. I hope those of you who make it out there next year enjoy yourselves.

Dave told me about a trip that he did where they drove Red Fox out there and then did a coastal tour (much like ours) afterwards. He said it was one of the best trips of his life. I'm a wimp. I can't imagine doing that in a soft top. I have to say this trip was one of the best trips of my life too.

If you guys ship your rigs I'd just look in your friendly TLCA white pages and find somebody in Reno or Sacramento who would help you out on the receiving and sending. It is probably about 2-2.5 hours to the trailhead from Sacramento. But it would be about the same in any rig as it is a lot of twisty and some two lane. Reno is probably the same or a little more. I'd check shipping rates and airfare and go with whichever was cheapest. The Reno airport is awesome if you are in a hurry. It is a smaller airport and things move very fast. Reno is also a major shipping hub as there are no warehouse taxes, that might help. Porsche NA is located there.
