SNU April Fort Sage Boondocking Rally

Need relief from those RV park and resort rallies? Come boondocking with the Sierra Nevada Unit at its Fort Sage Rally in the high desert region of northeastern California. The rally will be held Thursday April 17th through Sunday the 20th at the Fort Sage Special Management Area (BLM). Fort Sage is located near Doyle, CA just off of US-395 halfway between Susanville, CA and Reno, NV. The recreation area consists of approximately 22,000 acres of public land that is managed primarily for off highway vehicle use (designated roads and trails only) and winter deer range.

Sierra Nevada Unit rallies include a seemingly bottomless coffee carafe, informal potlucks and camp fires for rally guests who may choose between relaxing in the campsite and the recreational activities offered by the area. The Unit will hold a short membership meeting Saturday afternoon. Cost is $5 per night per rig.

Camping at the Fort Sage Trailhead is primitive; fire pits and pit toilets are available to campground guests. Have your potable water tanks full, your black and grey water tanks empty, fully charged batteries and be prepared to practice conservation of resources, water and energy, for the weekend. April April brings Spring to the Sierra Nevada and local mountains. Expect daytime temperatures in the mid 60's; low 30's at night. The rally is open to SNU and WBCCI members; other Airstream owners and potential owners are welcome as our guests.

You can find more information in the Rally Calendar pages at http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...&day=2008-4-17

Ft Sage

The other thing to keep in mind with the Ft Sage rally is that it will be a good opportunity to practice leveling your rig. Another common feature of SNU rallies is hillside or canyon type locations where level ground can be a little hard to come by. So be sure and bring a few extra 2 X 4 pieces, chocks and other necessities to level your rig.

Airstream ingenuity

Leveling methods are one way to determine who has attended several SNU rallies and who is a first timer. The "old timers" are glad to share their expertise and usually carry a few extras needed to level any rig.

It's a tradeoff

It's usually a tradeoff. Great camp location vs level ground. Ft Sage sounds like a great getaway rally.

Don, we travel this route through Doyle several times a year on our runs to the Oregon coast via Mammoth Lakes and Mount Shasta. Have a great rally.

Revised Route to Ft Sage

SNU Folks,

You may notice that the directions to the Ft Sage rally in the newsletter are different from those posted on the SNU website. Hackstaff road off the Doyle loop as described in the newsletter crosses a weight limited bridge. To avoid a narrow bridge and any concerns about weight, see the route described on the rally web page at
