Downieville.DAZE! June 25-28, 2015

You asked for it ... you got IT! Mark your calendars!

Downieville.DAZE! June 25-28, 2015

Time for some technical Tahoe N.F. singletrack! We had so much fun last year on my birthday ride
(ride reports start on page 14), that we have to do it again! June this year in hopes of a little cooler
weather. Juan & Steve gave me good local info on conflicts and we picked the June 25-28 weekend.





If you need an improved campground with piped water & pit toilets ($21/night), then the Packsaddle CG
on Packer Lake Road is the place to make reservations. I have already made Thursday-Sunday night
reservations for Site # 003. If we can reserve sites 002 & 004, and then snag site 001 (not reservable)
like we did last year, we'll have plenty of space for moto campers. 6 persons/site, 2 vehicles/site,
$5/night per extra vehicle. Those with long RVs or trailers should look for Packsaddle CG sites with
longer driveways.

Obtw, this campground (& all other CGs in the area) WILL be fully reserved long before that weekend.
Reserve soon if you want a good selection. Post your site #s & how many folks are coming.

If you don't need no-stinkin' improved CG, then (FREE!) dispersed camping is available just up the
same road. No campfires in dispersed camping though. More details later.



Reserved Packsaddle CG Sites:
02 - brents347 (1)
03 - catfish (1)
04 - 1224R (3)
05 - scorpion (3)
07 - Baja_Joe




I'm planning to make Friday-night dinner reservations for the group at the Packer Lake Lodge again.
What a treat! Let _me_ know if you want to be included in the group reservation.




Did I mention some of the most beautiful lakes & hiking trails in California?!?

Plenty of technical singletrack, jeep trails, & forest roads in the area for all levels of riders & motos. We'll help folks
pick compatible routes for them. GPS tracks will be available in camp.

Many more details later.

All right, well, if I didn't screw anything up, I just reserved site 002 for the 25th-28th. Also only 1 of 6 folks so far. I just thought I'd tie up another site.

See you there! Look forward to the riding.

Downieville "June Fresh"

Interested. Final decision late May.

Little something from my early 70's Sierra-Tahoe play list.

Just updated the 1st post with reserved sites. THANKS everyone!

wrk2surf bring Adam & the rest of the Sierra crew.

Perry bring theGrinch & that Sequoia Riders cap you or Jeff still owe me!

Mark & others, Packsaddle CG is at ~6100 ft. Downieville at 3000 ft. & Sierra Buttes L.O. over 8300 ft.
If my memory serves me right ...NO CELL PHONE COVERAGE IN THIS AREA! Wifi at the pizza-burger
place in Downieville & a pay-phone outside the gas station. Oh, a pay-phone in the parking lot of the
Packer Lake Lodge.

1224R, I understand about some wives...
Mine has camped with me twice since 1977. I'm going to offer her a Packer Lake Lodge cabin if it will get her
and our dogs up there. She'll probably whine about that costing too much though. D'OH!!!
If your family bails, bring Razr!
