Re: Event info?

Tim (knucklehead_61) and I might come up Weds the 8th also. If we do, you should come camp with us.

On flat towing, here's what I found on the interweb:
1. Shift the transfer case of the Jeep into neutral. This will keep the drive shafts from spinning the transfer case gears or the transmission while towing the Jeep.
2. The Jeep owners manual recommends shifting the transmission into "Park" (automatic transmissions) or fifth gear (standard transmission) for towing purposes. Neutral works just as well in practice, however, and many experienced towers prefer it.
3.Put the key into the ignition and turn it to unlock the steering. If you attempt to tow the Jeep with the steering locked, it will not track properly behind you and the towing will be extremely labored.

Re: Event info?

I tried searching but must have missed it... is hermit valley still going to be the designated campground since DV is closed? If not which one is it? There seems to be a few spots to camp but alpine camp looks big.

Re: Event info?

Hermit Valley is still the place. There isn't enough room for all of us at Alpine (if you are referring to Alpine Lake) and there is a noise restriction.

Hermit Valley is plenty big and even with the trail closed we can still get to the other trails and the Lake fairly quick.

See ya up there.......

Re: Event info?

From San Jose we go:
680 North
580 East
205 East
5 North for just a second
Yosemite Ave (120 East)
In Escalon we turn Left on Escalon Belota Road
Right on Hwy 4 East
Drive a long time
Campsite is about 7-10 miles past Lake Alpine

We're leaving San Jose at 10am Thursday morning if you want to caravan with us.

Re: Event info?

I would think its faster and easier to just stay on 5 north after 205 and follow the signs to HWY 4 east (5 north, exit hwy 4 east, 99 south/4 east, 4 east), but Ive never tried taking the 120 to Escalon route
