I can confirm Holcolm creek and White Mtn. As of two days ago, both had yellow tape and/or county vehicles effectively (and appropriately) blocking the trailheads.

Still had a lot of fun (foolishly) exploring an unmarked and infrequently traveled mining road though :thumbsup:

Was White mtn. blocked at the bottom, middle, or the top? I could have sworn the bottom half was open last time I was by there...

Hmmm...I might need to make a quick pre-run on the way home from work tomorrow.

Both Holcomb and White mtn were blocked at the bottom. Sorry, but I didn't check either from the other side. Might be able to drive through there some time before the run, though. If you're planning to check it out, let me know.

Probably just going to run the east side of the closure from Fawnskin down to Apple Valley. It'll depend on what time I get off tomorrow, but if I decide to do it on a day off I'll let you know.:thumbsup:

I am happy to report that the lower half of White mtn. (3N17) is in fact still open, and that the runoff from the winter rain/snow seems to have added a little more character to the trails...:thumbsup:


Only 7 days and a wake up.:D

We did the lower (easier) half back on the Jan. run with my triple strap. The upper half was/is closed from the Butler II fire.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I haven't ever run the top part with my X...:confused:








On a side note today was my last workday in BB until next winter. We're opening up our station down in Lucerne Valley on Sunday. The main reason I'm so excited is it's going to cut my commute by over half. It's going to be nice to only have to fill up once a week again...

We didn't see the gate because we turned off at the the mid point and went back down to 3N16.


The 250 is dirty, but doing fine. so far only put about 100 miles on it since it's been here. Plans are still in the works though, just waiting for some extra cash to start coming in...:thumbsup:

Sorry, no I won't. I'm off today, but I have a lot of catch up work to do around the house since I've worked the last 12 straight days. Tomorrow will be our first day back down at my station in the desert, so we'll just have to wait until next weekend.

I'm thinking that will be the best bet...It's the only place that is somewhat central to the area.

How does 9:30am sound to everyone?


Sounds good to me :thumbsup:

Just a thought...

I would also like to add that traditionally we partake in some sort of sit down dinner after our runs, and with the number of people attending I might need to make a reservation somewhere. So if you would like to join us please pm me with the number of guests you're likely to bring, as well as any special requests so I can do my best to accommodate everybody.

i don't think i would be attending dinner :( casue if i make this run i have get home kinda early to give my sister a ride somewhere (maybe like 5 or 6pm) so depends on how late the trail runs go.

this trip is this weekend huh?man i haven't even touched the nav since t-haven. so things that need to be done by then: driver side mirror, new springs, raise the front, fix passenger seat sliders :rolleyes:
