Big Bear 5/3/08

I would like to make at least one more run in the mountains before I go on lock down with work, and with gas prices as they are wanted to give everyone plenty of heads up. Tentatively thinking the 3rd so it doesn't crowd the Moab run.


Meet place
Big Bear Discovery Center (North Shore Dr. approx. 1 mile west of Stanfield cutoff) in the top parking lot
Meet time
9:30, rolling by 10:00
Communications
CB channel 12
What to bring
Looks like a good group so I won't list all the basics, but it will be a full day
so bring a lunch/snacks and your camera (everyone loves pictures)
Trails to run?
Gold mtn, White mtn, E John Bull, Cyber's hwy :p:...

If there's enough big dawgs then sure. I can always just take the smaller trucks and meet you on the other side.;)

Edit-I'm really hoping (although not holding my breath) that they open the trails from the fire closure by then.

I might be able to make it. It will give me a good reason to also see by brother and his new kid in Arrowhead.

Get that house. I made 20% more money in 2007 then I did in 2006. I am paying less in taxes in 2007 then I did in 2006. Should be an even bigger savings in 2008 now that I will have the house the whole year.

In 06 I had to pay over 4k even after with holdings. In 07 I get to pay about $1k. Not bad considering I didn't send in any taxes for the last 6 months of the year :D

It really depends on trail conditions. We did a run in '06 that had a couple of 2wd's that tagged along and one of them definitely had a tough time.

If you have your locker in, and don't mind being strapped a few times, then it should do just fine...:dunno:

Tbars, I'm not exactly sure which time you're referring to since I seem to run that section just about every time I'm up there...:scratch:




...and I would definitely be down to do Gold mtn. again. Plus I still need to reconquer White mtn. and redeem myself.
