RockHopper 2020
« on: June 17, 2020, 08:03:37 PM »

Please join us for our annual Rock Hopper Round up July 31st - August 2nd.  Please take time to read all the information and if you have any questions please do not be afraid to ask. 

This is a great family weekend of 4wheeling and camping.  We will be bringing our own CLEAN BATHROOMS for this event.  There is plenty of great camping spots at Bald Mountain Base camp but remember it is first come first serve.

Due to the COVID-19 and unable to meet as a group this last few months.  We will not be selling shirts or having any catered meals this year.  Instead we will have a potluck Saturday night when we all get back from a day of wheeling.  Please provide a dessert to share in the group for the Saturday night dinner.   

Please no alcohol at this event.

 Trails are open to all 4x4 vehicles from stock all the way to extreme, however depending on vehicle condition trail bosses will have final say if your vehicle is capable for the run or not.
We usually run a group all over Bald Mountain, a group to Strawberry Lake, and a group to Red Lake. 

There will be a basic cal4wheel vehicle safety check so please use common sense for vehicle condition. If you need help getting your rig trail ready please let us know and we will see if we can get it ready before you head up the hill.

1. Roll bar or factory installed hard top.
2. Emergency brake, parking brake, line-lock or other redundant braking system.
3. Tow strap or rope (recommend rated at 2 times the vehicle weight).
4. First aid kit.
5. Jack capable of lifting the vehicle & tools to change tire.
6. Spare tire within 3 inches diameter of other tires, or, for tires 37" or larger, run-flats or tools to repair/reinflate tire.
7. Fire extinguisher with gauge indicating good/full, appropriately stored.
8. Seat belts for all vehicle occupants.
9. Antennas must be rigid or restrained in a manner to prevent injuries.
10. Adequate attachment points front and rear, i.e. tow hooks, receiver, etc. Tow balls are not permitted.
11. Battery hold downs (no bungee cords).

Due to a dry season, camp fires will not be allowed this year however you can bring a fire ring, BBQ grill or something similar that can be turned on and off with at will. 

For the ham radio guys we will be using the repeater up on Deadwood to talk to those coming up.  147.180 + 146.2.  for simplex we will be using the channel that Fresno 4wd club normally uses which is 147.500 and a back up simplex of 146.500.  Cb channel is 37 like always.

Please drive slow around camp as there will be children playing.  No discharge of fire arms of any type allowed in camp due to children.  Pets are allowed as long as they are dog or kid friendly (young kids grabbing, pulling and poking them) please maintain control of them or please don't bring them.

Directions to the Bald Mountain Base Camp.  (where we are camping)
From Highway 99 Take Highway 180 East in Fresno, then Take Hwy 168 East into Shaver Lake area,
Pass shaver lake and continue to the first Snow park on your RIGHT side Tamarack Ridge.
Go to the back of the parking lot and you will find the road continues.
Stay on the main road and watch for signs pointing to Rock Hopper.  I'm not sure of the distance but for some people it can take up to 30 min on Tamarack road with a large travel trailer.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. Psalms 40:2
