Motorsports Expo is OPEN!

Doors opened at 11am. And open every day at 11am through Sunday.


This year I got a corner booth spot and room to bring the Rubicon Trail Foundation’s (RTF) trailer. It’s one of six for trail maintenance.

I’ve got help from the Lake Tahoe Hi-Lo’s who are promoting their (our) Gambler’s Poker Run, coming this August 17th.

Scot Hansen volunteered to place his rig in the show. This is one of the more built, if not the most built rig, in the Lake Tahoe Hi-Lo’s.

There is a good turn out of Off-Road groups and organizations. As well as a boat show, home show and pet show.

Of course, I’m set up to talk about the Tahoe Side of the world famous Rubicon Trail…

Come out and visit us. Thu 11-5, Fri 11-5, Sat 11-9, Sun 11-5.

Breaking Sparks’ Code

I’ve probably mentioned it before but the City of Sparks has a code in place that makes it illegal to work on your own car on your own property.

You can change fluids and brake components but not swap carburetors, engines or axles.

Well, I needed to break the rules…

You see, I locked up the rear diff three months ago and the Jeep’s been parked in front of my house that whole time. My neighbors love me so it didn’t get ticketed.

Rather than just doing the diff work, I decided to swap springs and axle all together.

In less than three hours, I had the old axle/spring combo out and the in unit installed. Okay, it doesn’t have brakes and the spring perches are not welded to the axles. But everything was tight enough for me to back it in to the driveway.

Keep Jeepin’

Motorsports Expo – Reno March 14-17

Coming up in a few weeks is the Lockett Motorsports Expo. At the same time as the Boat Show, Pet Show and Home Show will be going on in the same building.

I will again have a booth to promote OHV on and around the Rubicon Trail. The Lake Tahoe Hi-Lo’s will be sharing the booth with me in order to promote their (our) club and our upcoming Gambler’s Poker Run in August.

This year I hope to have a TV, DVD player and laptop so we can show Rubicon videos and pull up TheOtherRubicon.com and the Hi-Lo’s website live.

Last year Jeepers Jamboree had an RC course set up for the kids. Yes, for the KIDS! They use it to teach proper trail etiquette and to Tread Lightly!

All the local 4wd clubs turn out and put their rigs on display.

We’re hoping to find room to put the Rubicon Trail Foundation’s work trailer on display as well. Here it is in action dropping the new granite mile marker at the intersection of the Rubicon Trail and Forest Road 03-04.

Hope to see you there,
