Camping is available for those who want to stay for the night. There is plenty of room for campers, trailers, and motorhomes. No hookups are available.

The meeting starts at 9AM on Saturday and will include a Halloween costume contest and a raffle. Then we will have a driving skills contest, badminton, swimming, and socializing, along with a potluck BBQ.

Trekking in the Sierras

Vintage Sierra Trek file photo

The 2016 Sierra Trek: Come for the trail, stay for the party!

Back in 1964, a small group of Jeepers got the idea of creating a fundraising event for the newly formed California Association of 4WD Clubs (CA4WDC). It would need to be a first-rate event similar to the then-famous Jeepers Jamboree on the Rubicon. Sacramento Jeepers member Ed Dunkley, an encyclopedia of knowledge on Sierra Nevada history and old mining routes, gathered a few folks and began searching for a suitable trail. The chosen route was a long-abandoned wagon road from Cisco Grove, California (near Truckee), to the shores of Meadow Lake and the 1860’s mining camp of Summit City. It had been decades since the “road” had been used, and Mother Nature had played her hand at reclaiming the land.

Corporate donations can make a difference

As avid off-roaders, we are always concerned about how to effectively fight for “OUR” public lands. Many of us donate hundreds of hours and dollars to these efforts to different organizations. Some of us even join in the fight by becoming board members on different boards to help give direction to these organizations.
