Rubicon springs is a private property and so let the camp fire roar!

There's some great pics in there Peter!

One question though. One of those pics looks like someone was rope swinging at night? Seems reckless and Def not like something we would do.

Sum picures

Day 1: San Jose to Shingle Springs (trailer drop) ~ 150 miles. 4x4's from Shingle Springs to trail head ~ 60 miles. Trail head to Buck Island Lake ~ 8 miles.

I didn't love the idea at the time, but leaving in the dark turned out to be good because we made it to camp that night with about an hour of daylight to spare...

Image

The group got together and motor'd on

Image

Image

And eventually we said, who the hell needs trailers!?

Image

Where's the gas go again?

Image

Good looking paint on the hood!

Image

Too cool for school, no gas needed

Image


Shits almost real...

Image

Image

Changing, err, removing, the air from tires

Image


Image


Image


...and lehsgo!

Image


Image

Image


Image

Image


Image


The first removing of tools from the bag... Simple fix, jam nuts came loose on the tie rod letting the hydro ram spin the tie rod all over the place.


Image


Second removal of tools... Motor running sporadically, after some tinkering, it runs like a champ. We decide, somewhat hesitantly, that maybe it was just real hot, vapor lock or something like that. Ran great for the rest of the wheeling so thats all that counts

Image

Here's camp the first night

Image

And here's the view from camp the first night at Buck Island. Ignore the non Ford's in the foreground :angel:
