Body Damage is Cool
Ok, we are 3 Months away from this trip. Everybody mark your calendars. The AZ crew is leaving August 31st, we plan on making the drive halfway this day and will pick up the last half of the drive Sept 1st. The plan is to arrive at the Wentworth Springs part of the Rubicon late Tuesday Sept 1st and set up camp for the night. For those who are planning on attending with less of a drive than us AZ guys or NM guy, you will have your trip cut by a few days.

Wheeling dates in the Sierra's will be Sept 2nd when we start heading into the con. Sept 8th is when we intend on leaving or exiting a trail and starting our trek home part way. Finish our drive home on Sept 9th. The two main trails we want to do are the Rubicon and Fordyce Creek. We would like to work in some other trails as well around the area. Snake Lake, Barrett Lake, Etc.

I am going to consult with Lloyd on routing and structuring the agenda. He's the man when it comes to that.

1. First thought is why not start out Saturday or Sunday since its a weekend anyways? If nothing else I probably will just because I will be sitting around, especially Sunday. My other thought is 2 days is way too much drive time. Admittedly one day is a tough drive, and I am not a fan of that these days, but you could do 10-12hrs one day, half a day the next and get there early enough to wheel and not be trashed. Otherwise maybe a warm up trail on the way up the Eastern slope? See 3.
2. I would start with Barrett Lake, its before the Con.
3. To break up the trip home I would suggest a Eastern slope trail further south, lots of options, mostly Easy to Moderate but scenic. Always wanted to try that but never have. Start out early home the last day and it will be a cake drive.

wentworth springs is a nice camp, and right at the start.
excellent place to setup for the run.
the loon lake entry seems to be for trailer parking, and cuts off a nice piece of the trail.
