It is official, in five weeks we are heading back to Fordyce Creek for at least three days of wheeling and possibly some on the day we arrive and leave. The dates are AUG 16 - 20. So all you Cali guys, if you want to beat the heat and see some great scenery and have some fantastic wheeling, come join us. We are giving you time to make plans. Here is where we will camp.



This is a forest service campground with maintained toilets. Creek next to the campground, at least last time were there it was flowing. Not much rain this spring though. But still a nice place with lots of trees and plenty of flat ground. Campsite is accessible with a car if you drive sanely. The wheeling in the area goes from mild to wild. Lift and locker recommended, although much of the area is accessible with a stock rig. Don't even think about it without recovery points. Good cooling system is a great idea. It is a long grade up I80 from either direction. Campsite is at about 7000" I think. Bring lots of mosquito repellant and good sunscreen. The sun at that altitude will cook you right now. I used to live in the area, I know. Civilization is not too far. Convenience store at Cisco Grove, Safeway store in Truckee about 40 min away. This is the weekend with the smallest crowd because it follows the Sierra Trek the weekend before. If you want to come and just camp, that is fine too. Nothing to prove here. We intend to have good clean family fun. Come and join us.

If you start now, you can make it. Even with repairs.
