The Sierra Nevada Unit’s June rally will be held at Carson River Resort’s boondocking area, Friday June 16th - Wednesday the 21st. The boondocking area is perched 125 feet above Ebbetts Pass Scenic Highway (CA-89) on a westerly flank of Mogul Peak with commanding views in the Toiyabe National Forest’s Carson River, nearby Silver Peak and the Mokelumne Wilderness’s Raymond, Jeff Davis and Markleeville Peaks.
You’ll find lots of opportunity for recreation; fishing in the Carson, hiking in the forest, bicycling on local and backcountry roads (look for Jeni and Brian two-wheeling around), story telling, recreational napping under your awning and star gazing in the nighttime sky. We’ll continue our theme of shared meals/potlucks every evening; maybe someone will even catch some fresh mountain trout to share!
Jeni Root has negotiated a special price for SNU members at this rally; camping is $25 per night. Please RSVP to the Carson River Resort and mention the Sierra Nevada Unit Airstream Club when you call; 530.694.2229. Note this is a Buddy Rally, invite your friends that aspire to own an Airstream even if they don’t have one yet.
To get to the Carson River Resort take California Hwy-89 north from US-395 or South from Markleeville and stop at the main lodge and store to check in. Then head south 0.3 miles and turn left (northerly) to drive the 1/4 mile road up to the boondocking area. Find your Airstream friends and pick a spot.
Carson River Resort is 70 miles from Reno; can’t stay the whole time, no problem. Rally with us for the time you have or just stop in for a day.
