Rubicon Trail June 8th, 9th

Dan and I have been wanting to do the full Rubicon. I haven't done it since 2007 when I was a stretch 7500lbs 4 seater.

Reno/Tahoe Mogfest is June 9th through the 12th. The plan is to come in 2 days early and run the Rubicon trail.

My wife and I plan on driving up to Tahoe to the R/T Mogfest campground June 7th, setup camp and prep for Rubicon. Wednesday the 8th drive to Loon Lake, 60 miles, est 2 hours on Google Maps.

Wednesday June 8th around 11am hit the Rubicon trail. Somewhere along the way make camp.

Thursday June 9th pack camp and continue to Tahoe for Reno/Tahoe Mogfest.

404 sized rigs and smaller should have no problem from what I remember. Larger stuff could likely do it with some spotting but maybe damage. Again I haven't done the trail in 9 years.

Interested? Post up and let us know who we should wait for.

Anyone know if there is a propane fill station near Loon Lake, CA?

I have two 10 gallon tanks (200 mile BEST to likely 100 mile WORST range) on the Mogster but 60 miles on road (8-10MPG) and 20 or so on the Rubicon (5MPG) I should have enough but it would be nice to top off before we hit the trail just in case.
