Just please let us know so we can plan accordingly!
No way Kevin, just passing along Andy's comment. I am sure we will be fine.

They actually knew you before you starting de-barking trees using your fender flares.

The only place I can think of that would be near our path would be Reno, NV. Depending on how we lay out the travel plan we could pick you up early Wednesday morning or most likely Tuesday afternoon. We would then drop you back at the AP Sunday afternoon.

Does anybody have any links of the Rubicon that shows video? Ken said that he watched a video of the Norcal guys but I can not find it anywhere. I am trying to show Sharon what it is all about and pics only show so much. Any video is appreciated, I found the FJ TT vids but they are really small and more add then the showing of terrain.

I am also trying to show her how nice the camping can be so any help is appreciate.

These guys are running it backwards 3 years ago in June. Thinking the upfront snow isn't part of the official trail, but Kevin will have to chime in here

Thats a fun vid! I would love to run the Rubicon when there is snow...what a kick in the pants! The vid is also traveling backwards which for the most part is tougher as it's uphill that way. It is possible for snow on the 'con during Rubithon but it doesn't happen often. I was registered the year they canceled it due to impossible snow conditions. We still took the trip, just didn't take the Cruiser.
