2019 Reno/Tahoe Mogfest

I'm a bit delayed in getting this announcement out this year, apologies to those who have to plan their events well in advanced like myself.

We are planning on holding our 10th annual R/T Mogfest here in South Lake Tahoe, CA on the last weekend of June. That will be a trail ride on Friday, 28th and a longer ride on Saturday, 29th, everyone says their goodbyes on the Sunday and heads home.
Base camp will be at Tahoe Valley Campground as in the past, book your own site, tell everyone where you are and hopefully we can get grouped together for the evening BS around a campfire.

On the very first R/T Mogfest we went into Rubicon to Observation Point for the group shot, then Sourdough Hill reopened, and those views are even better. I was hoping the group would want to go back to Observation for the 10th. However Mother Nature and Old Man Winter have got together and dropped 20 feet of snow in the Sierras, so it could be like 2011 where we didn't manage to get to Miller Lake. See Bill Caids photos of our snow-wheeling,
2011 Western U.S. Expedition with 1017A 20110622

Hope y'all can come this year, Rod

I'm not totally sure of our summer travel plans, but if we are in the western US, we'll swing by and say hi.

Michael, anyone and everyone are always welcome. Trail rides start "early-ish", campfire BS is after dinner. Scott Ingham arrived one evening in a TDI Beetle after completing a parts delivery. Welcomed with open arms.

Independent Chas, Independent. Independent thought, independent action.

Looks like you have a sprinkling of snow there. You plow a pretty path with that blade, hope your neighbor is appreciative. Rock solid 4' in the backyard and 5'+ in the front. Just waiting for the melt.

Rick, I'll be here for adult beverages Thursday night. See you and any others then.

T-shirt issue has met with a yes vote. Looks like I'll have to do something about that.

Just received the t-shirt design.
Going with tan and the lighter green we've used in the past to really show the trucks off. Don't have a price yet but that also depends on the order size. Price break happens at 24+ t-shirts, so orders please and I can get this going and have some idea of cost.

I really want to drive down one of these years. Maybe this one...

It's a long way in a U1500 at 50mph from Portland.
