I've been know to lead some winter time trips in/around the Big Bear area, but it's been a couple years now.

HA maybe next winter we will have to get that thread started up so we can go snow wheelin!! Bust out some good chains and go romping in the white stuff. For now we stick to the dirt and hope that more people chime in and go to Big Bear!

Beautiful day

Weather looks like it will be nice next Saturday
Mainly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the mid 40s.

Hopefully we can get more people on the "attending" list besides just me and my father :thumbsup:

Countdown is 6 days away:D

I'd love to go, but it's the day after my wife's birthday and we're probably going into escrow this week.

Gotta say no this time :(.

I believe that a BBQ after the run would be in order.:popcorn: At this point it looks like it is only going to be a small group.:scratch:

As much as it sucks and kills me to change plans but I won't be going. My most favorite thing in life ie life itself has priorities and vacation right now just isn't one of them. I would however like to go snow bashing this winter. Do enjoy the trip for those who are going!!

I live in Banning, and would love to take the wife and kids on a trip like this. I have a stock 92 XLT, and I prefer fire roads. Water crossing are OK, Body damage is a strick no no.

I have to work this weekend but and interested in future runs.

Yes a stock 92 would do fine on the trails we are taking this time.
They are mainly fire access roads and you could probably get a regular 2wd car down most of them.
The wife and kids would also love the trip.
Hope to see you next time:salute:

Thanks, I'm looking forward to it. For a future trip, may I suggest Bee Canyon Truck Trail - San Jacinto Ridge Truck Trail. It's just up Highway 74 from Hemet and unless it's dried up there should be a stream crossing at "33.775637,-116.776514." The fire road ends in Idyllwild. :D
