Re: Official SierraFest 2021 Thread

What about just parking the trailer at Tahoe trailhead on Monday morning and running the trail backwards until you meet the big group?

Pros: Secure area, no back tracking to your tow rig.
Cons: 1.5hr+ drive on the 50 to Loon.

Both seem like ok options. I'll have to wait and see if I can manage to get this thing registered before the trip. Driving 1.5+ hours on the road might be a bit much, unless I get some more road miles in and become more confident with it at speed. I think I would rather park at the Tahoe side like Phil suggested so I can wheel like there's a trailer waiting for me at the end of the trail. I'll just have to be sure of where I'm going.

We just parked a tow rig at Tahoe valley campground. It used to be parking behind the locked gate, now they just put you in the back lot in the trees on the open area.

I park my tow rig at the Tahoe exit and drive around. It's a good feeling having a tow rig waiting haha. But yea it's like 1.5 drive after that.

Re: Official SierraFest 2021 Thread

I should have added, the folks at Tahoe valley campground are good people and there were no issues leaving my trailer out. It’s only $10 a day and i’ve had no issues for three times i’ve used them.

FYI CHP has been working HWY 50 for speeders lately. The last time they put a bunch of units on it they warned on their facebook page. I would not count on that though.

Re: Official SierraFest 2021 Thread

Question: Is this still the plan for the first half of the trip?

Saturday, August 7th: Camp at Loon Lake spillway

Sunday, August 8th: Group heading into the RTF Property, spot and camping until Tuesday August 10th.

Monday, August 9th: Anyone who camped Sunday night and heading in Monday, meet up at RTF spot - those at the spot, wheel the Granite View Loop and hang out.

Tuesday, August 10th: Wheel into Rubicon Springs - that evening, Taco Tuesday!

Do we need to bring a wag bag for the RTF camp site?

Yes on the wag bag for the RTF property.

Back around Memorial day and up Ice House from hw50 we almost rear ended a lady in a Saturn parked right in the middle of the road and on her phone around a blind turn at like midnight. Coincidence?

Re: Official SierraFest 2021 Thread

If someone that is doing the Rubicon can take a tape measure and get some measurements of the existing small porter potties that would be awesome.

Better than that, if someone could take like 40 or more pictures of any and all angles and specifics of the bathrooms that would be awesome. Inside and out; top and bottom; the more the merrier.

Ideally, I would like to keep the design of the Wag bag rooms similar to the existing bathrooms so there is a cohesive feel throughout the trail and RTF Property.
