Sierra Fest - Hermit Valley via Strawberry Pass Late Thursday or early Friday?

100K XJ and I will be driving our rigs through Strawberry Pass on the way to Hermit Valley. We plan to hit the trail by 9:00 am Friday at the latest so we can get to camp early afternoon. The second option is to meet at Strawberry Thursday evening at 6:00 pm for arrival at camp by 10:00 pm.

Anybody else leaving for Hermit Valley late Thursday/early Friday who wants to get there via Strawberry Pass?

Just curious - after Strawberry, are you running DV trail to get to camp or taking the pavement?

My plan was to take Strawberry Pass to Hwy 88, then to Hwy 89 and a fill-up at Markleeville, then on to Hwy 4 and Hermit Valley. Your idea is intriguing, however....

The kid and I both have plans Thursday night so we are planning to be at the trailhead by 9 am Friday. That should put us at Hermit campground around 1 pm.

I know that was the channel last year. Unless someone says otherwise, I'll use it.

my buddy camped at blue lakes a couple weeks ago, he stopped by the ranger station first off 88 by forestdale road which is the one that travels south and connects to dv. He said the road on that end is closed due to snow drifts and probably won't be open all year according to the ranger. They basically closed it by putting a giant rock in the middle of the trail, so you may or may not be able to climb over it and get through, but even if you do you may get hassled by the ranger.
So, with that said you might wanna stick to your plans and take pavement to dv from strawberry.

What happened to the blond chick from last year? I'll look for you at the Strawberry trailhead by 9:00 am Friday morning, blond chick or not. CB channel 4 sounds good.
