In about three weeks, our annual trip will be here. I will probably be up there on Thursday, Sept. 5th.

I'm hoping all the Ramblers will be there, and any other guys who want to share the experience will come also.

 For those of you that want to attend, there is two rules. Rule 1: No women, or boys under the age of 15 years old. This is a men only event.

Rule two: There are no other rules. :cheers2:

We actually have a Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1019421971533643/

 Keep in mind that this is a private FB page. And to be a member of the Rubicon Ramblers, you actually have to show up to the event first. If you are planning on coming this year, or already have been up there with us, Let us know here, and we will add you to the FB page. We're trying to prevent all the "friend" happy people, with no intention of ever becoming a member, from joining. But if you're seriously planning on coming up, let us know sign you up.

If you wish to contact me, please PM or email me at: benvc1@gmail.com


Here is the weather link for Wentworth Springs Campground:

http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-120.32430592815427&lat=39.01141351557217#.V830tK2iquo


Why would I post a weather link 3 weeks away? Because the link constantly updates. So it will always be as accurate as any weather forecast will be.

If the Jeep isn't working, you can still come up. But you better have some clearance on whatever you're driving. And there's no guarantee you'll get a seat in someone else's rig.

Also the meat bees where zero in July. We're hoping it's the same in September.


Here's a video that CJCrawler put together a few years ago:

Well they did clean it out on Friday of our trip. Do you think it could be full again?

Oh, had no idea they cleaned it then.  Last time I called them they said they didn't have any on the trail and that was RTF's responsibility, I called RTF and they gave the USFS the what for and got it taken care of.   I don't think it'll be full in a month and a half but seriously they should be out there at least once a month.

Well sorta, there's a ranger station in Georgetown and something on Ice House Rd. but I think their main office for Eldorado is in Placerville.

I just spent a few days camping at Lk Tahoe. We ate in the RV because the bees were bad again.
I didn't bother to set my screen tent up but if you have room for one you may want to bring it.
Hopefully conditions will vary by area.

Are we talking about the genera Vespula wasp...   :biggrin:

Well...  just bring some freezer burnt red meat and set up a few soap traps away from camp. That's what I always do and it makes for good entertainment.   :cheers2: :cheers2: :cheers2:

So you guys going up tomorrow may have to take a detour. There's a fire( the Country Fire) off HWY 193, between Cool and Georgetown. And they have 193 closed as of now.

If you keep going on 49 to Coloma, turn left at the Coloma Club, and it will take you to Georgetown.
