Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Sort of . WE have parked trailers at base camp near dinkey creek campground in the past here, but this year we wont be staying there, but that will be where we stick base camp for trailers.

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Yeah we will have to figure out where the raffle will be , but more than likely it will be at our base camp

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

I won't be able to make it to SierraFest this year unfortunatly.

I guess it's not a good idea to miss the birth of your first child or something like that... haha

This is not final, just one possible way
I'd like to join you guys on Thursday - Saturday. I've been wanting to run Swamp for a while now. I did Red/Coyote with the Bakersfield Trailblazers in 2017 and I've been eager to get back to the Shaver lake area ever since.

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Depending on the final schedule, I may or not be able to make it. I have 3 more friends getting married this summer + a couple bachelor parties to attend which means I already have several long weekends off requested but I could swing a Thursday night through the weekend or possibly that Thursday day through the weekend if Swamp Thursday to Saturday is the final schedule but either way I'm down for Shaver Lake area again, its nice down there!

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

We are talking about moving it to Rubicon /SR / Dv due to excessive snow. Swamp might not be open by early august

Just my selfish opinion, I like this option better. Shaver Lake area is nice and all, but I'm constantly thinking if I have to drive that far I would rather go to Moab. We always have a great time on the Rubicon and at Hermit Valley.

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Yes there is a lot of snow. Usually with heavy snow years it can be mid August before swamp lake opens.
Either way I am good!

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Every year I follow the Sierra Fest thread and think about joining you Nor Cal folks for the event, but so far I haven’t been able to make it happen for one reason or another. I’m hoping this’ll be the year I can finally do it. It’ll depend on work issues that are largely beyond my control.

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Well, after consulting with the rest of the BOD, the decision has been made to change the location of this year's Sierra Fest from Shaver lake to the Rubicon/Hermit Valley. It's been a heavy snow year with the southern Sierra Nevada being 146% of average. Since Swap Lake is located at around 9000 feet of elevation, there is a good chance the trail won't be open on time. Therefore, we will be running the same format as last year, Rubicon Monday through Wednesday, a lay over day in South Lake Tahoe on Wednesday, then head to Hermit Valley on Thursday. The BBQ and raffle will be held at Hermit Valley Campground on Saturday evening.
