Hello Treasure Hunters,
We’ve kicked off the summer with a bang!
The Rubicon Trail Foundation’s (RTF) Cantina for the Con had a great turnout from our Club.
We had at least 30 club members out at the Cantina, which was held at Robb’s Resort. We had around two dozen of those members camping at Ice House Resort. I think we represented the Club well and it was noticed by RTF and others.
There was also a great turnout for the STH 4WD June Club Run & Steak Feed! 13 rigs on the club run, 23 overnight campers at Morningstar Lake Resort; 38 participants overall! I served as Trail Boss and Eric Heikila led the way as Trailmaster for the Yankee Jim/Shirttail Canyon club run portion of the weekend’s activities. Next year, we will look at ways for the club to sponsor the food and have the trail master serve as the BBQ Master!
I wanted to add a little note about the upcoming Devil Went Down to Cali/Hell Hole Jeep Trail Club Run – I love this trail. However, we last did this as a club run in May 2020. Back then, I described it as a “toll-road” because your club members and guests had to pay the piper. Hell Hole Jeep Trail exacted the following price from your crew on that day:
• 1 Sliced Tire
• 1 Ripped Brake Line
• 1 Cracked Track Bar Mount
• 1 Overheated Radiator
• 1 Wayward Starter Wire
• 1 Broken Axle U-Joint Assembly + Ball Joints
• 1 Gouge in a Hard Top
• 1 Ball Bearing Replacement, and
• 1 Differential Oil Leak
Although Phil Salazar and I will be at Jeep Jamboree USA’s Rubicon Trail run the weekend of this run, we know with Kenny Melton and Heather Parker serving as Trail Boss's, Hell Hole will be one helluva good time!
