Saweet rigs!!

It looks like for the 3 day plan the most common campgrounds are
First night = Thompson Hill Campground, Second Night = Ershim Lake.
Lots of complaints on mosquitos when camping and rain coming out of no where. Pack the spray and some rain gear might be good.

Slow guys average 1 MPH while the faster guys are 1.5MPH.

Hey Steve,

I plan on just meeting the group at campground thursday night in my jeep.

Platypus wrote: Ok Dusy Ershim'rs, final logistics being updated. I'm getting excited. After some texts, phone calls, forum posts, and some local insider info...I think we have a concrete plan.

Thursday - We all need to arrive at the Maxon Campground trailhead parking lot . A large area for all of us to primitive came (but no campfires allowed).



If possible we will check out the actual campground for avail spots so we can have a campfire and such.
After we group up, those with non-street-legal jeeps (3 to 4 of us) need to trailer drop at the Maxon parking lot and drive our trucks/trailers to the Parking lot near the end of our trail . It is located near Badger Flats Campground and Kaiser Pass Rd. I think this is it on the map....if someone has an exact location let me know.



After dropping trailers/trucks off at trail's end. those with street legal vehicles will give us DMV dodgers a ride back to Maxon trailhead parking lot.

Friday - Pack up camp and kick off our epic adventure.

Saturday - uhh, more adventures...probably repairing some kind of carnage on my jeep.

Sunday - adventure continues and hopefully we are making good time ;) and reach the north end of the trail exit in time to load up our junk at the Badger Flats parking area and truck it down to Fresno for some dinner, a large alcohol-infused belly wash, clean bed, and probably one of the best showers you ever had.

Monday - High fives, goodbyes, and talk of our next trip back some day.

Where did you get the "Maxson Parking" info from? I am seeing that there is an actual campground just passed the "Maxson trailhead" called "Voyager campground" (about 2 miles)... I have seen several groups say they stay at "Voyager" since its ON Dusy trail.

At the Maxson trailhead take the Dusy Ershim Off Highway Vehicle Route. Follow it for 1.8 miles to Voyager Rock Campground. Technically its about 45 minutes from Maxson to Voyager...

Should we all meet here Thursday night?
The views looks pretty epic from the campground but this is adding time to already long day for most of us.

Any thoughts?

I think the campground thing was based on availability, if there was nothing available at voyager campground, then primitive camping in the parking lot was going to be the alternative. I may be wrong but that was what Ryan and I discussed. I am going to try to get Steves cell phone number. If It's OK with everybody else I will start a group text message, Just for the drive up so we can stay in touch if someone had a trailer flat (raaaaaab) or something similar. If Cell phone signal is shitty when we get close to trailhead then River to VHF for CB channels.
Rob, are you still planning on trailer dropping at the end of the Trail for camping at the trailhead?
, You're leaving at 3 AM on Wednesday? You will get there way before me or my brother I hope to be there before it gets to be sunset. Will probably leave around 11 AM or noon.
