This would be a good goal.

Also, what was that place near Mammoth? Let's get something there this year too.

Hmmm. With any luck, I'll have a few new things to bounce rocks off by then.

Subscribed... pending the possibility of $27/gallon gas :rolleyes:

This is true, we always plan Truckhaven and usually get blown out for part of the trip. I love it there, but I would rather drive over for a new scene. Johnson Valley is definitely on the list.

Also, I'm independently running a trail I've been plotting in my GPS going from Phoenix to Flagstaff in the next few weeks to see how long it would take. Thus far it includes

Lake Pleasant(No. PHX) to Crown King(an old mining town).
Crown King to Prescott (a mild trail called senators HWY)
jump on the highway for a short distance to get on Mingus Mine trail (takes you to Cottonwood AZ)
about 18 miles of highway to Sedona (a very scenic place)
Sedona to Flagstaff on Schnebly Hill road.

Just thought I'd throw that out there if someone would want to think about joining in the future. It would probably be 2 solid days of wheeling, but driving back to Cali from Flagstaff isn't too bad of a drive (if your trailer isn't down in phoenix), plus there is the Cinders up in Flagstaff, essentially a lot to see if we could work it on a 3 day weekend.

Its 140 miles on the pavement, my proposed route takes that down to about 35 miles on the pavement. Here's the route. Just thought I'd throw that out there if any Cal guys wanted to put that on a tenative date.

Here's a map, offroad is green, on road is red.

October is hard to plan for up by Fresno. Depending on when the snow shows up will determine if the trails are open.

I vote October in truckhaven and then do something in November or December out at the hammers.
