Topix Carcamp Sept 29-30

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

Trailbud and I will be in a white 4 door Rubicon with a winch or a wench on the front, the piece that doesn't wear the french maid outfit.

No, and that is clearly what it needs to keep running for another 130,000 miles!

I had to look up "Tuareg," which turns out to be a Berber speaking ethnic group. Is Trailbud some sort of Berber deity, who has portable worshippers?

For those that have not read this, pretty cool, first few paragraphs relate to Snow Crown.

for those pondering what this last weeks storms may have done to the Sierras - not to fear. we encountered minimal snow(>2") below 10k and that should all be gone this week. at 13k feet the most we ever ran into was about 6" and most of that should be gone. but cooler temps are coming - I would expect it to be down around 40d at night at the 4000ft level. no projected storms for the weekend although if Thurs-Friday winds pick up it may drop temps a few degrees - nothing warm layers can't help.
