I'll be traveling down Thursday. Let me know when and where you want to meet Friday morning.

Zog, I think the plan is thurs-Sun, so far a couple of us are going in Friday morning.

That doesn't bother me. It was the wet hill climb up Cadillac that was my problem several years back. No front locker makes those climbs super difficult.
Come on I've gone up the entirety of Cadillac Hill (save one spot) in 2wd. You can do it! :D

Either at the placerville safeway/shell or at the loon lake spillway. Either is fine for me.

I think we're still going in Thursday but if everyone wants to go in Friday, we can do that too. There is talk of camping at Buck all weekend then turning around and coming back out Loon. Kinda only want to setup camp once...

I was still planning on Thursday as well. Should be able to drive up Wednesday and arrive at camp (Loon or Wentworth?) that evening. I'd love to hit the springs if possible. I like hanging out at the pools there. Just putting forth my wishes. :cool:

report today that a rig made it all the way through over the weekend. Deep water at the springs "over my hood", boulders in the middle of trail on Cadillac and big drifts on the Tahoe side that should be gone in a week or so.

sounds good for July

My little group is planning to head up Wednesday morning. We're going to wheel in from Loon, then back out to Wentworth. Camp at Wentworth Wednesday night.

Camp at Buck Thursday night, then at Rubicon Springs Friday and Saturday night.

Conditions change quick up there, and with all of the traffic from the four day holiday weekend I am hoping that most of the downed trees and new boulders will have been figured out.

Regards,
....Mike

Only reason for us not wanting to go into the Springs :surprise::surprise: I'm going in Thursday now with a buddy, plan to camp at Buck Thurs-Sat and only setup camp once and not deal with the massive amounts of water at the Springs :D

Rubicon Springs - Pirate4x4.Com : 4x4 and Off-Road Forum
I was hoping the water levels at the Springs would improve by July 4th. I definitely can't make it through water that deep. If conditions don't allow, then I'll hang out at Buck with the rest of the crew. Sounds like I'll be the vehicle with the least amount of lift, so I don't want to get into a section of the trail that will go beyond my vehicle limits.
