From there we took a secret route and ended up in Fallbrook. It was an outstanding ride

Woke up this morning at 7am and took my XR and mtn bike to Skyline Rd from home in Costa Mesa. To my dismay, the gate was closed contrary to what the website said (couldn't reach anybody by phone over weekend). Dreadfully, I unlatched the mtn bike instead and tredged up the mountain. Ughhh! I got as far as Beek's Place before wearing out. Ate some lunch then pushed on to the golf ball tower and turned around. Was overcast in morning but burned off to be a beautiful day.

I saw a fire crew working up there and then ended up passing two motorcyle riders talking with their engines off. Both had XR650Ls but only one had the volunteer CNF helmet skin. Don't know if the other guy was in training.

Can't wait to ride here and cover the same area in about 30 minutes what took me a good part of the day.



Catalina Island


San Gorgonio Peak with snow


San Jacinto Peak


Irvine Lake




Snapped shot of volunteer Cleveland NF ranger on XR650L descending hill. Other guy was behind him but not in shot.

Wha ? Mountain bike mounted to your XR? I would live to know how you mounted your MTB. I'm a mountain biker as well and have thought about putting my MTB on the back of my motorcycle but have not come up with a way to do it that doesn't involve 417 bungees

Let me rephrase. Mounted motorcycle and mtn bike to Honda Pilot and unloaded mtn bike only. But, it is possible to mount bikes to your motorcycle. See one of my favorite other forums on the net.

Even your esteemed senior patroller, myself, is required to go, so hopefully we will have enough notice before the next training session and we'll have a good OC turnourt.

CNF will have regular Volunteer training this winter, sometime in January at a location in OC. This is mandatory to attend every two years as a minimum.

Stay Tuned!

Personally, I am currently in Northern Nevada getting ready for a 'Polar Bear' ride. Pics to follow... Brrrr..... It snowed here yesterday...

Definitely interested in becoming a volunteer. I looked on the San Bernardino website and found the following:

One Orientation / Host class (2nd Wednesday of each month)
A trail ride in the Mountain Top District and the Front Country District
One Scenario class
One Rules and Regulations class


Are these the classes for the Trabuco district? Is there any location in Orange County instead?

The orientation classes are usually held on Saturdays (usually 1 a month and these should be starting in January) at different locations in the San Bernadino Forest. The first two classes are usually about 1/2 to 3/4 of a day and then there is an optional ride along. The ride along is neccessary only if you want to patrol San Bernadino. Clevelend will have their own ride days. The last class, scenarios, is all day. You will also need to have a MSF Dirtbike card. I know Pointman and I will try to get the information out as soon as we get. Hope this helps you.

MSF - Motorcycle Safety Foundation. There is a dirt bike course that is required to ride as a volunteer. I took mine at Honda of Colton Training Center although there are other places to take it. It doesn't matter how long you have been riding, they want you to have it.

Talking Annual CNF Volunteer Training, Sat, Jan 31

From Ms clark...

Dear Volunteers,

This is a reminder to mark your calendar and plan to spend the day with the Trabuco Ranger District staff on Saturday, January 31, 2009 at Santiago College near Jamboree and Chapman in Orange.

For Inland Empire residents the shortest route is to take the 91 west to the 241 toll road then take the first exit (after the toll booth) turning right on Santiago Canyon Road and about another mile to the college.

The Volunteer Training is a mandatory requirement for volunteers. If you miss the training two years in a row you will have to reapply to volunteer.
Sponsored volunteers are all encouraged to attend this informative training. Sponsored volunteer leads are required to attend.

Thank you all for your efforts on behalf of the forest!

Debra

I realize that all skill levels may want to volunteer and there is a need for the NFS to ensure they qualify experienced volunteers, but I would think that many years holding an M1 license qualifies without needing to attend an MSF course. I guess I'm going to have to find out where to get one?
