Please post an update so we know you guys made it back OK. Not much snow here today, but it had to be a bit icy up there. Hope you had fun.

Just made it home, and once again I had a blast...:D

The only two downers for the day - not being able to reach Cyber, and my over heated trans...:thumbdwn:

Gotta go thru and resize some pictures...

Yup i am here just got home from Big Bear.

I arrived at the Discovery center about 12:30 try calling Tbars left voicemail
tried calling Boomer no answer left voicemail tried calling on CB nada nothing happening.....:(

So I went into the discovery center and found maps of the trails in the area
so i went on my own little adventure;) looking at the maps i picked 3N16 and hoping i would get lucky and might bump into you guys

but i ran it all the from the transfer station untill i ran outta trail:eek: was coming back the way i came because of the trail closure i tried to take 3N09 back to highway 38 but then i got stopped by some jeepers who told me there was a accident down that trail so i have to turn around and go back to 3N16 and traverse my way back to the transfer station and back to town.

so after that i rolled onto hwy 18 into Big bear Lake grabbed a bite to eat checked out local scene since i have not been there in many years.

then it started to get dark and started snowing alittle in town so i grabbed some fuel and headed back home just taking my sweet time in doing so.....

here a quick pic of my X while it was still "clean":D
i'll get the rest uploaded and posted tonight.

Glad to hear everything turned out alright...

I got your message at about 12:40, and tried calling you a couple dozen times through out the rest of the day. Surpised I never heard you on the radio, we where never more than 2 miles away from 3N16...

Real sorry that we weren't able to meet up...

I kept calling on the CB they only thing i heard was a couple jeepers on 3N16 talking and talking smack about me when they saw me at the trail head:(
oh well.....

yea it sucks about my phone just after I made those calls I guess my phone was shut off by the phone co. And I did'nt know it untill I was at the burger joint trying to call my voice mail to see if you guys called or not....:mad:

...boomer, i never did find the pics you took on john bull...:scratch:

...before i do anything else i must say this was just what the doctor ordered and i had a total blast...snow on the ground, ponds in the roads the size you could stock fish in with water up to the doors, and rocks everywhere and i don't think there were to many we missed playing on ;)...and i know i haven't mentioned it in forever since i got my project X, but i love my little ranger...:D...it dawned on me yesterday that it hasn't been off road since may and i had not been able to see what it could do with the new lift and mods i had done to it...i didn't air down nor did i unhook and it went everywhere i aimed it...;)

....i kept saying we were going to get a good snow last night and this is what i woke up to this morning...harley tucker, my little depth guage was in over her head trying to make it thru in my tracks...it was a good 6-8" of snow...;)
