Default Good info about the Rubithon from people who have been there before

The Rubithon thread over on Mud has some really good information. I will repost some of it here.

This is from Tony Twiddy, chairman of the Rubithon event:

Dogs are allowed (mainly because some owners would not attend if they could not bring their dog) but need to be leashed at all times. Especially in the Springs. While I am a dog owner and love my Golden Retriever, I do not bring her to this event and personally do not recommend it.

Parking at the chalet (directly below the dam, right at the trail head) is available. You can also park your rig at Ice House resort for $5 per night. I recommend this. I have never heard of anyone having issues with their tow rig while parked at Ice House.

There is no longer a 'breakfast' included in the overnight runs. I encourage folks to utilize Ice House resort for lodging and breakfast prior to hitting the trail, but all Rubithon runs now begin at Loon Lake trail head or Wentworth Springs (as indicated on the registration form). hmmm... drive time in a laden cruiser from Ice House to Loon... what? 30 minutes?? It is still 30- miles from Ice house to Loon.

fun fact: majority of registrations received so far are FJ Cruisers!
