    Lake Tahoe Hi-Lo's Poker run 2018

    Were at it again for this year, please check us out on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/events/566643027003287/ , or our website, https://www.laketahoehilos.com/
    We ran the Deer valley trail last year and it was a nice trail to be back on. It will be our trail again this year.
    Were always trying to improve things and Carlena works really hard to put everything together so folks can have the most fun.
    It's not the problem, it's the solution, that counts.

    Ignore the closed stamp, its reopened but with seasonal closures based on snow depth. Fun trail. Very few dull sections, its full on pay affention. Two beautiful water crossings also. Very scenic.

    I don't know if we have hard fast rules for rig requirements. I remember hearing 33's with a locker.

    I'll bring it up at our Tuesday meeting.

    What are you running?

    We post spotters at a few but not all of the tougher spots. The hardest section we run in the downhill direction so it's easier.

    The next question is how much experience do you have crawling? 90% or the trail is a breeze. But the 6-7 challenging spots will test you.

    You'll might have to place a few rocks to get through sections or get a tug from the guy in front of you.

    I don't see the Deer Valley Trail as something that will damage your rig. But no guarantees.

    Thanks for the response, that's what I was looking for. Virtually no crawling experience but I plan on getting out a bit this summer. I don't mind if I get a little dinged up; but I'm more worried about breaking and not making it home.

    I appreciate your help. Will the sign up period close?

    It's more likely the sign-ups will fill-up rather than close. There will be a limited number of entries.

    Maybe you could get out on the trail early with someone else to check conditions.

    Or ride with someone this year and drive next year.

    Some tight radius turn areas towards the hwy 4 side of the trail, but other than that you'll make it, most rough spots have some bypasses, but there are one or two spots that will get your attention, and like Simpleman says, you will need to stack a couple rocks and maybe need some one to spot you.
    It's not the problem, it's the solution, that counts.

    We don't get in to the details like that. In a real emergency, everyone around you, especially Hi-Lo's club members, will come help you. But as the driver/operator of the rig, it's really your responsibility to take care of your passengers. Buy a kit that will deal with a typical emergency when out camping or wheeling.

    Please read up on basic emergencies like cuts, bleeding and broken limbs BEFORE you need to apply those skills.

    Any decent camping/outdoor store will have a selection along with Walmart, Target, etc. As an EMT, I've added extra bandaging for more severe issues. What would you do if you or your buddy dropped a running chainsaw on your leg? What if you came across a rolled rig with two passengers badly injured? Do you have supplies to splint an wrist, ankle, arm or leg? Do you have the supplies to stop an arterial bleed?

    You can't be over prepared. A first aid kit is not the place to save a buck.

    Good advice to any driver looking at a new trail feeling uncertain. Two years ago a brand new tacoma bailed not even 1/4 way in not willing to rusk danage. But in fairness this was running trail northbound from hermit to deer creek.
