fermentor, thanks this is great info. truly great. Ill happily pay more for gas at ice house resort to have the drive .

Looks like it will be Barret, then rubicon, then hell hole on saturday, so we will end up doing the raffle at hell hole most likely. this is still in the planning stages.

Edit: Southfork is booked for every Saturday In August so that would not work for us. That seems to be a great location though.

Availability of fuel at Ice House can vary. Most recommend checking with them before heading in to allow for "plan B". https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ice-H...59108547500682

Bummer that South Fork is booked. It would have been perfect for your plans.

Another option would be some of the open spots by Airport Flat. Forget setting up toward end of week, but you can normally snag some dirt getting there Wednesday or earlier.

We have successfully occupied this https://www.google.com/maps/place/38...!3m1!1s0x0:0x0 across Airport before bridge. And have had mixed success across the river https://www.google.com/maps/place/38...!3m1!1s0x0:0x0. It helps if you have someone "at home" while everyone else is wheeling.

Thanks for the info and the google maps locations.

Its now probably going to be Barret(M-T) /con(W-F)/hell hole(Sat) with the bbq and raffle event at hell hole somewhere, so now we are going to be scouting hell hole's general area, or just have it down at the lake if needed for the day run on Saturday. I have been spending time on google earth going up and down the roads looking for tow rig parking and what not. Ill head out there sometime in the next few months to scout find some good tow rig parking and maybe a spot for the bbq/raffle and what not. It looks like whoever tows will need to be moving around a bunch from barret to the con to hell hole.

Anywhere near Pollock Pines or on the way to Ice House to leave an old Suburban tow rig, no trailer?

Any issues with theft when parking on the Tahoe side?
Was going to drop the truck/trailer at the end of the trail and drive the jeep to the start at loon.
Haven't seen anything posted but wanted to ask before I make the drop.

Not heard of anything, nor has anything ever happened to our tow rigs.

The quad rental guys are on the road every day and there is plenty of traffic through the parking lot at all times of the day and night.
