I only have one very important question:
What's the likelihood of some of this dutch oven goodness making an appearance at this years SF?

I recommend to go to hermit that day.

I tried the hotel thing before, I hated it. I have been going straight to hermit. We resupply in tahoe, do laundry, and refuel. While we do that , we also order sandwiches at beachhut. All of the above is in the same shopping center with the Raleys .

Then we stop at the hot springs in Markleeville to shower and use the hot springs.

The hot springs require reservations since Covid started . But the hot springs might not be open this year due to the Tamarack fire that literally got right up to the hot springs and burnt down some of the buildings. we will see.


lake alpine lodge has pay showers, 3.25$ in quarters is required for a 5 min shower.

Re: Sierra Fest 2022 ! Aug 1st-7th !

Sorry, buggy/green sticker/obligate trailering. I’m already imagining just parking the truck at Tahoe and running solo towards Loon until I were to meet the group. And it would be worth the hotel room for Sunday night and not drive up from Sac on Monday morning.

So I’d meet the group at like Granite Bowl

Art has a place in tahoe where he parks his tow rig. its a group campsite with tons of parking.

Art you got details?

The spot is down the road from the Raleys.

I've been parking at Tahoe Valley campground but this won't help Phil since he'd still have to drive on the 89 to Tahoma. Might as well park at Tahoma staging.

Yes, I was just trying to see if there was still a recommended place to stay Sunday night instead jetting up from Sac on Monday morning. Hell, I could bring the big trailer and camp in the Tahoe staging area but I donít think thatís a thing that is done.
