Are going to get together and do a little planning?

I'm debating buying a fridge. If we're going to share a couple of fancy toilets, that's great. The shower seems like a cool idea. Is that the kind of thing that is shareable? Do we have to bring water or do we get water out of the lake?

I'll have to check my tent and air out my sleeping bag. Any idea what the temps usually are there at night that time of year?

Showers are definatly not needed in every rig. However, since OBshower use engine heat exchange shower time should be planned so the vehicle doesn't need to be heated up randomly. I do have a portable Zodi also that might aid in conserving gasoline, although that means more propane. Fridges are a great thing to have anytime so if you've got the money and are debating need start watching e-bay and Craigslist but be prepared to act quick as they don't last long! I think I am going to buck up for a Pett system too as it is something that would get used a lot all year long.

I'm still in. I'll be bringing my minimalist essentials including tent, camp stove and sleeping bag. I don't mind being a dirt-boy and not showering for several days. Used to it from lots of backpacking trips and my won't be along to tell me I'm gross.

Count me in at this time. I have wanted to wheel the Rubicon since I started wheeling ten years ago. I have a 85 mini truck.

I just joined the club last night.

The last two years has been shorts and button shirt during the day and long pants and shirt with a light jacket at night. Some little flying, biting things at night and early morning. Tony T has a stand there will be no snow(some years it has been snow and water on the trail). I think you will have to play the wait and see thing, pack for the worse and be thankful for the good.

Is that a button-down shirt, or are polos ok? And at night do we need to wear a tie too or just the long pants & jacket at dinner? I had no idea the Rubithon had such a country club atmosphere, but I've never wheeled in California before, so glad I know now!
