Dana H. mustered several four-wheel drive clubs and the U.S. Forest Service to come up to the Wentworth Springs Campground, located at the foot of the Rubicon Trail, to restore and repair the campgrounds. Richard O and Tim W from the Sacramento Jeepers, left Sacramento early to meet with tree cutters Tom C and Chris S from the U.S. Forest Service and drive them and their equipment to the campsite. Tom and Chris came out to cut down several designated trees before any of the work crews from the four wheel drive clubs showed up
