Sierra Fest 2019

Who is going?

EDIT 4/16/19
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.

I'm up for either one of them. I can break a rig anywhere.

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Shaver gets my vote. A Thursday to Saturday trip through Swamp Lake would be cool. The idea of people heading up for the raffle or a day run is pretty much out the window if we do it in Dinkey Creek. Too far for just a weekend trip.

I like that idea. When can head back to the main camp area we use on Saturday afternoon for the BBQ and raffle.

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Even though I didn't run rubicon trail last year I would enjoy shaver lake area. Swamp lake run 2-3 days would be good. Also running red lake to coyote lake and camping at coyote lake would be awesome. Lets do both.

I would be down for doing that early in the week, say Monday through Wednesday.

First 1 days would be optional for those who want to show up early

Re: Sierra Fest 2019

Hello, I am new to the group and to the XJ in general. I have about a year with my rig and have managed to learn quite a bit about it and fix much of the stupid junk the last guy did. I think it sounds fun to meet up and do some trails. What do I need to do to get in on things?
