Here is what Zukiworld says about the trip..
CALMINI Customer Appreciation Run 2002
For 6 years now, CALMINI has made it a point to show their customers a good time on the world famous Rubicon Trail. OVERVIEW: The group leaves early in the morning on Friday from Loon Lake and arrives at Spider Lake for the first night's camping. There is usually enough time for people to take there unlaiden Suzuki vehicles back to the Little Sluice for some aggressive wheeling before sacking out for the night. Day two has the group leaving Spider, dropping down the true sluice towards Buck Island lake where the group will break for lunch. After which it's down the big sluice toward Rubicon Springs where camp will be made Saturday night. Sunday arrives early with a drive out Cadillac hill thus ending the trail. The group then makes it to South Shore, Lake Tahoe and then heads back toward Placerville on HWY 50.
When will it happen ?
The CALMINI Customer Appreciation Run is set for September 13-15th.
Where will it happen ?
The Rubicon Trail is east of Sacremento, California.
Can I come ?
Yes, everyone owning and operating a Suzuki 4x4 (and their family) is invited.
What do I have to do ?
CALMINI Customer Appreciation Run participants need to do two things: 1. Send an email to [email protected]
or contact Steve w/CALMINI 1(800)345-3305 which gets your name down on the list. 2. Show up at the Loon Lake damn/spillway Friday morning at 9:00AM the group will leave at 10:00AM
Who is paying for it ?
There are no fees associated with this un-official event. As always, every participant is responsible and liable for themselves.
Camping, Eating, Gas, etc ?
Here are three good options for the Camper / Lodger for Thursday the 12th and Sunday the 15th:
Camp at the KOA at Shingle Springs East of Placerville on HWY50
Stay at the Best Western on Missouri Flats Rd. in Placerville
For the advanced trail goer: Stay at the Embassy Suites Resort in South Shore Lake Tahoe. This causes a longer drive on Friday to get to the trail head but Sunday's drive is a breeze and you can be either on the road or in your hotel room shower early on Sunday.
Aside from the gratis dinner provided on Saturday by CALMINI, all meals will be your responsibility. You will also need enough gas to run your vehicle through the entire rubicon trail. It is only 14 miles long but it does take the better part of two days to cover that distance.
What else should I bring ?
You should bring everything you would need for 4 wheeling anywhere in the country. Bring your adventuresome spirit and sense of humor.
