I'm planning to get up there 3 or so in the afternoon on Friday, I have space #7 but i'm sharing with RangerX.
As for the campfires, i'll call tomorrow and see what the situation is. The fire danger changes from week to week and even day to day.

Everybody good on directions? I'll put them in the first post, you can punch in Crab Flats campground on Google maps too.

Good news...there are no restrictions on campfires currently so we are good to go:thumbsup:

What's the verdict for Saturdays run?: John Bull via Gold Mtn.
or
Dishpan Springs/White Mtn.

Looks like my plans will be something like this. Friday afternoon...leave here. Probably arrive early to late evening there in Big Bear. Got reservations for space 9. I'll be there Sat and sun to wheel. Been to Big Bear many times but never been wheeling there. So wherever we're going I'm game. Its just going to be me coming, so if anyone needs a spot to pitch a tent or wants to ride along, the're more than welcomed to. Can't wait to go. Should be great time.

I'll be coming up Sat morning.

I don't care what we run, but I do like John Bull.

Bring wood! Tom Davis will not be there with a trailerload to save us!

;)

Looks like everyone is good with running Gold mtn./John Bull on Sat.:thumbsup:

So, let's meet at the Discovery Center parking lot say 9:30ish.
It's on the north side of Big Bear lake on Hwy 18 just past the town of Fawnskin, entrance will be on your left.

I told my cowboy buddy I would help him with a load of horses and a stock sale on Saturday.

Sorry work you know. I will be up there but the people that I am going with decided to do Heartbreak ridge, since it is next to our camp. So thanks for the offer I would love to do John Bull, fun trail, but I have not done Heartbreak. I hope next time.

There will be about 3-5 trucks at the campsite tomorrow night, so we'll all just head over there together. :thumbsup:

Hi Guy's. I can't go cause I'm swamped with grandkids. 15,13,11 and 3 yrs. old. I'm trying to teach them how to surf. Been going to the beach almost every day. Besides it's cheaper than going to amusement parks.:D

Have fun, I really miss not going. Be safe and post lots of pics. Maybe we can get something going in Aug.

Tom

What time do you guys figure to leave the campground to go to the Discovery Center? Cuz google says 57 minutes driving time from camp to Fawnskin, and the center is another 10 miles maybe?
I'm trying to figure what time to leave home, to get to camp to drop gear, and head over with you guys.

I didn't think it would take that long but it's probably right. Fawnskin to Discovery Center is only a couple miles and around another 5 mi. to the Gold mtn. trail head.
We can always push the time up to 10am if need be.
