    Re: Pyramid Next Week?

    In california you must chain up if you are pulling a trailer and some officers say to chain the trailer, so get a set of cables for your trailer and at least 1 set for your 4x4, you'll need it on the ramps ;D ;D

    I came over I80 Monday at 4:00pm. I have a 4wd, they made me chain the truck, and said if I had trailer brakes I would have to chain them. I have a single axle. Any one with tandem was having to chain the braking axle.

    My wheel fenders are within about a 1/2 from my tires on my trailer. This prohibites chaines or cables.

    They made my brother chain his boat trailer yesterday coming through Truckee
    My understanding is if you have a trailer with tandem wheels,(2 tires on each sides) you have to chain the set that has the brakes on them. I wish one of the Highway Patrol members would chime in here and give us the real poop ;)

    If you're pulling a boat or any kind of trailer across the Sierra this time of year, you need to carry chains for your truck, whether it is a 4-wheeler or not.

    Good luck all at Pyramid...I'll hit Eagle Lake one final time next month before it closes for the season...

    Ive been up there and all they made me do is throw chains on the truck 2 or 4 wheel it does matter when towing a boat.No trailer restrictions.

    I was up at pyramid in my 16 ft klamath with north winds pushing 5 ft swells what can say it was a blast headed directly in to them ;D ;D ;D.
    pulling the boat out it is a hole nother story. :o.

    You guys also have to be careful when there is ice on the ramp & dock!! My buddy last year went down, when his feet went out from under him. He got shookup and hit the back of his head on landing. He was ok, just a lot of sore spots to rub, while fishing......Watch out for ICE !!

    If you are going to hurt yourself; do it getting that BIG FISH into the boat!!!

    Good luck...Ed

    My brother and I use the same method. Northriver with cooler on the back makes it tough.
