Best way to wheel the Rubi is go Wentworth to Observation point and turn around and head back out.Set up a base camp in the middle.More bang for the buck.

Rigs are street legal not necessarily street comfortable (:

Also backup plan if rigs are broken trailers aren't far.

If not maybe hit up the Chevron off Fresh Pond on 50.
I could ask the Chevron. They certainly seem to have plenty of space.

I've got a friend going for the first time and he really wants to run the trail all the way through.

The loon lake camp ground is where we have left our trailers. Cost you a couple bucks but well worth it. Has a care taker onsite so it allot less likely for your shit to be messed with.

Hows the bronco holding up?

Probably best to check with someone at Freshpond before, never seen set ups left there. Maybe randomly due to break downs but not typical for trail use.

Follow up!

I called Chevron Fresh Pond before our trip back in August. Asked if we could leave 3 trucks and trailers there, offered to pay. The person I talked to supposedly talked to the owner, and relayed back to me we were good to go. We bought gas and some stuff at the store but didn't "pay for storage". Left tow rigs and trailers there for 4 days without issue. So I'd call it a decent option. Thanks to Chevron Fresh Pond owners/management if they ever read this!
