Perfect thanks. I don't mind arriving early I just wanted to make sure that i headed to the right place. I only reserved my spot for saturday and i think that checkin to my site is at around 1pm so this gives me something to do until then.

Anyone interested in being a trail leader?
I've never done gold mountain, in my own rig. I was passenger with Mark a few years ago. I've flaked on every SCF since then . I have 35's, front and rear locked on toothpick axles (D30 and 8.25), t-case and gas tank skid protection and a winch. I don't want to bang up the body too badly, but I am a bit of a n00b. I like scenic as well - I'm going to bring my camera to take some nice pics.

You have done Claw Hammer......nothing in Big Bear compares so you can run anything and be fine.

Re: Runs, and run leaders

anything in big bear can be run on 33"s with no lockers or 31" and one locker.. rocker guards if you care about minor body damage.

Re: Runs, and run leaders

I am new in SoCal so I have no idea of what is there but I will vote for something interesting that can keep us busy for part of the day.

Thanks John. Guess I should have looked at earlier posts in the thread.

Look forward to seeing you up there!

Re: Runs, and run leaders

We will be doing Adopt-A-Trail on 2N04 and possibly 2N49 on Sunday. Meet at the Discovery center at 10:00 AM (to give folks a chance to pack up).

Re: Runs, and run leaders

I've never been to Big Bear before. What are the trails like? Mostly dirt, mud and ruts or any rocks? Levels of difficulty?

I want to wheel but don't want to be on the trail for a whole day. Most of our wheeling is done to get to where we want to camp. Just need an idea of what to expect on the different runs.

Thanks,

dub

Re: Runs, and run leaders

Geoff/Sequoia usually (when not dreadfully hungover) leads a pretty cool easy/scenic run, does a running commentary on area history, and then does an optional drop through Jacoby Canyon, which can be done in a stock rig but offers a couple small challenges and some cool scenery. Those who want to skip it have an easy route back to pavement, as well.

Someone may lead a Gold Mountain run, which I did with 2" lift/29" tires rig back when I first got it. Again, there are a couple of interesting challenges, to the point where it's listed as a Moderate run. I usually manage to get stuck somewhere, once, but as I know you used to make it to Sheep Canyon up the old original "staircase", this run will not be a problem for you...

I am debating just hanging out in camp all day Saturday--it's been a crazy month and some for me, and being busy doing nothing at all except relaxing sounds kinda fabulous. Usually I go up for 4-6 days and get my relaxation days in during the extra days, but that's not happening this year. I'll be up late Thursday or early Friday, and leaving Sunday after the Adopt-A-Trail run.
