Re: Dates and Schedule

Looking good guys! I should be there the whole week. For those that want to run stuff the first weekend, I was kinda thinking the locals (me, BenH) could show you guys Blue Canyon. Some extremly fun and different stuff than what that area has to offer. We could do that just sunday to try to wait for those that are coming in from a long ways.

Would anyone like to do that?

Re: Dates and Schedule

I will be getting back from Vegas on that Monday, and will immediately head up to catch up with everyone on Dusy and pick up any stragglers like myself.

Is this a only run???

Re: Dates and Schedule

South end at Courtwright. If you are starting late, your chances are best to go in from the north. We will be camping at Thompson the first night, then Ershim the second and third. I know from experience that courtwright to ershim is a LONG LONG day.

That is what I would recomend to do if you are thinking about starting Monday night or tuesday morning.

Re: Dates and Schedule

What time friday the 10th is departure time. I'm coming from SoCal and the earliest i could get too Shaver Lake is 8p. That's an optimistic estimate.

Re: Dates and Schedule

Friday departure is going to be as early as we can get everyone going. Probably hit the road to Swamp no later than 8am. We would like to break camp that night as early as possible so we can some relax time. Its a 4-5 hour (good day) from start to camp.

We traditionally try to leave camp Fri morning at 8:30, no earlier than that. Folks are packing up after camping that night, topping off the ice chests, using the john, etc, so we aim for a departure time around 8:30.

You better get up early........

You're good, just bring some spare front shafts since you're running 35's. The only requirements for this are at least one locker or good limited slip, 31's, tow points, and some rock rails. I'd break the hub nut loose on both front axles at home before you go......if you've never had them off before.

Re: Dates and Schedule

Cool deal. At this point it's looking like i'll be able to attend. I'll be sure to pull those spares and make sure they're "easy" to change if needed. Sounds and looks like it'll be a fun run. i'll plan on getting there the evening of the 9th and staying through the 12th, maybe longer if i get lost in the woods!!

Re: Dates and Schedule

If at all possilbe I would like to take a group up to the Red mountain area on Sunday as an alternative to Bald Mountain. The Coyote lake trail is much more challenging than Bald Mtn. this year, and the lakes up in that area are grand and warm. If there is interest in this trail of course, and if it is ok with the organizers.

One more month people, is your junk ready?

I dont see why it wouldn't work. I kinda have this "thought" about the sunday bald run though. To me it seems its generally just a good ol' hoot and hollerin time getting to play with the big dogs and stockers. Plus, there may still be interest in doing a Red/Coyote week trip as a secondary option for the week long trip.

Idk if my junk is ready.. Phil?
