Default Rubicon Run 2014

Alright folks, it is that time again! Who is up for the annual rubicon run? Last year we went in late September and got snowed on , so maybe we'll do it a little earlier this year?

I noticed it takes us all a few weeks to get our act together, so I am going to propose early September. Also, the annual marlin crawler is August 22-24 this year, and cantina is being held on August 30 and 31. So how about the first weekend (5-7th) or second weekend (12-14th) of September?

Post up!

Last time I ran rubicon in my 74, a few months before I rolled it, o had carb issues. Holly 390 on a modified 4.0 heep motor was a bit too fat.

As much as I wanna go, I'm holding out till I get my 73 beast rolling. Which will be awhile since cash flow falls short from getting the parts I need.

They have been busying paving that section of the trail.

They brought in over a 100 bags of concrete back in July.
Plus the jeepers just when through there and they drive stock wwii jeeps


at this point I'm open to either weekend.
Friday- Sunday trip

Hey sean,

Craig makes a great point, and in addition, I'm not sure if we are going to run the whole trail. I'm sure there will be some who will be trailering, and if so, we'll probably go back out to loon. I don't think there is much of a reason to be concerned with cadillac. We ran the whole trail last year because Jeff needed to take care of something at the springs, otherwise, we would have gone back out to loon.

Had to look it up. That would Friday sept 12th, Saturday the 13th and out on Sunday the 14th.

Second week works better as it will give me more time to work on my stuff too.


Fwiw I really like camping at the springs. Dirty dozen camp ground has some of the best camping on the con.
Your right next to the water. But I'm fine with any thing

It's looking good for ben and I. The second weekend works as well. I just got my rear locker replaced. Making this a good time to test it.

Craig, did they move that big rock at the base of cadilac? Ill be sure to take the correct line this time.......
