Not only is it illegal to drive my rig on the street, but it's in capable of going over 30mph so I will head in west to east and out east to west.

Those with streetable rigs can go all the way through west to east (loon to tahoe), fuel up in Tahoe and drive back around to loon to load up.

We will all likely stage our tow rigs at the spillway, or pay (i think 5 bucks a day) to leave our tow rigs at robbs, or both. We'll plan in detail as the date gets closer.

I just re-read your post... coming from the east, I'd hook up with someone els coming from the east. Park at the tahoe side and drive your scout to the west side. First though, go past the entrance to ice house... You'll want to fuel up at sly park rd. It's about 3 miles further. Then backtrack to icehouse, drive up it for ever and we can all meet wherever we decide to meet.

Not knowing anything about the area, does that make more sense than offloading/parking on the west side and driving the trail rig back around to the west side to load back up?

Or do I have it all back assward???? What would you do if you were coming in from the east?

Id really like to try to make it out there for the run, work looks to be very busy and the only realistic way for me would be in a Right seat. I won't really know if it will be practical for me to fly out until a week or so before the run, but what are the practical logistics of getting from the airport in Sac? to the trail.

chiscouter, I'm sure there will be lot's of people that would be down to pick you up and take you up to the trail. We will be caravaning from San Jose (driving past Sac airport) to El Dorado Hills on Thursday night the 15th. We will sleep there and head up to the trail Friday morning. From there you could ride with anyone. Josh, - I think you got the idea heading back to Loon via the trail. Driving from Tahoe to El Dorado Hills last year sucked. My scout (kind of like yours) was shaking to pieces. I lost a muffler, a rear driveline and was freezing at 2am with no gas stations open. It was cool in a adventure sense, but no thanks this year.

Chi,
If you can get your arse from the airport to the trail, you're welcome to my right seat. As of right now, it's vacant.
What about a flight from Chicago to someplace else? If there was somewhere east of Tahoe you could catch a flight to, I could swing by and pick you up on my way in.

Does anyone else know of a place on the Tahoe side to park my tow rig. I'd like to park on the Tahoe side, then run the Scout around to other side and pop back out at the tow rig...... if possible.

On the Tahoe side there is a staging area. I'm gonna run all the way through. But I'll probably leave my tow rig and trailer on the Tahoe side, try to avoid the HWY patrol and drive the Scout to Loon.

Are they OK with just mudflaps and not flares?


I'm batting this trip around with the wife, I'd love to make it.. We'll see how things are when it gets a little closer. Right now I'm looking for another 1 ton truck so I don't have to drive the Motorhome down. I'm looking for a real clean 4 door gimmy or chev 1 ton, older model around 3 to 5 thousand range. keep your eyes open Cali people. I don't want a salt infested Utah truck....Thanks

Mud flaps are a fix-it ticket.... (no $$$, just need a cop to sign off on it after you ad them).

Not anymore. If I remember correctly they charge you a $30 "administration fee" as they called it. Cocksuckers!

What about the flares? I'm running 38's with 6"s of tire sticking out on either side with no coverage, do they frown on that? I have quick connects on my flaps so I have no probs there..(always run the flaps when on the street/highway, I think 40.00 dollar ticket here) I run the scout 80mph down the freeway here and have no probs so far (knocking on wood somemore)

Should be ok. I had a mudflap ticket last year coming through Nevada City. Mad some temp flaps and got it signed off. $25 admin fee.

Just how does one get to the trailhead on the the west side of the trail (Loon I guess)? Can someone toss up some directions from I-80 or US-50?

From Tahoe
Take US50 west, turn right on to Ice House Rd and follow the signs to loon.

If you can get to 50 your practically there - just take ice house road and turn at the sign that says loon lake. Just keep going till the road turns to dirt then it turns to rock then.. well your on the trail

Normally it's great... but this year it'll likely still be snowing

Back to the top. Don't forget to get this on your calendar.

I just spoke with Sean @ Anything Scout and it sounds like he has several guys with built rigs that plan on going.

So uhm.... You vendors going to donate cool stuff again this year?

What's left to get that beast ready? You must be closer to being ready than me. You already have the drivetrain in right?

I have the ford 205 and am shopping for a klune, or klune clone. Stiull need a better cage, and tons of loose ends that would have to be done before a cross country run. The alarm goes off at 4:30am, and I get home at about 7:30pm 5 or 6 days a week. Will be that way into August at least. Rumor has another movie coming in as soon as we are done with this one. I just don't have the time or energy to wrench on the weekends. Even if I were to get it done, no way I would have the time to drive out and back. Ill just have to see if Hooters Air flys into Sac from the windy city

Hey Locals, what airlines fly direct between here to there? what kind of rates are you getting?
