If the weather doesn't change in a hurry TLCA may need to look at another date for the "Snowbithon".

While I don't speak for our Rubithon Chairman Tony, the last we spoke about this, there will be no rescheduling of Rubithon.

Yes, it will be wet, but the snow should be gone from the majority of the trail. Last year, the snow issue was at the top Caddilac Hill,not the trail from Loon to Springs

since I missed the "hardest rubithon ever" last year- bring it! I have the hot shower this year and will set up a hot tub in the back of the Cruiser to spite Mother Nature.

So would this be a situation where chains would help or not? I hadn't planned on bringing my chains along but if they would help I most definitely would bring them. My whole life right now is planned around Rubithon and Cruise Moab. It is what is keeping me sane in this hectic time.

Go or don't. IMO the trail is way better when it is wet. Last year was epic.
Bring gas for the generator . Bring tarps , lets go. The trip up caddy was so much more fun with the snow burms and water crossings and aiming at Gary's 80 when punchin it outa the big hole , good stuff.

No need for chains. Air down to 13 or so in that Wagon, and float over it. Alvaro made it through with no chains.

We're really only talking about the upper half, past Cadillac Hill. The Loon side in to the Springs should be clear of any snow, although it WILL be wet again.

Good times -- good times

OK, No chains then. More room for other essentials. My chains fill up two 5 gallon buckets.

and some folks wonder why I impose minimum requirements.

There will be no postponing. This is our only weekend.

Everyone should plan for weather.

Too early yet to speculate, but lets being watching.

However, I encourage everyone to help me secure raffle prizes as this point.
