Write that down, there will be a quiz later.

We are going make a campfire in the parking lot of the hotel...grab some beers from the lobby bar...have them run out some wings from room service...bitch that the heater has the room too warm....take a 30 minute shower in the morning..then drink some coffee while bitching that we should have gone camping...

No worries, I think we have another truck coming.


Folks, I finally created the first kmz file from Google Earth. I've passed it on to Fergus to convert it. Assuming this works, I will complete the rest of the route and then we will be able to answer a lot of the questions.

Do not make any reservations but so far it looks like we will meet in Ridgecrest on Friday morning. The first trail we will hit is the Trona Pinnacles. Should be an easy one.

Socal Riders Meet Up

Anyone coming from Socal interested in riding or driving up and interested in meeting up?

Let's say 6AM on Friday, where Sand Canyon crosses over the I-14. There's a gas station on the just off the 14.

We should get to Ridge Crest 9 am!

Lippencott Road is a piece of cake. I towed a 12 foot trailer UP it in the dark with a 2WD truck. Not a problem

Hi all,

I've been playing with Redbull's route, converting from Google Earth into GPX format. I'm new to this, so it's been a bit of an experiment. Attached is the Pinnacles route, converted to GPX format. Please feel free to check it out. You can also use http://www.gpsvisualizer.com to view the route.

Comments appreciated.

Regards,
Fergus

jm, good idea, we just have to figure out where to leave you truck for the whole weekend. I know someone in Trona, and maybe leave the truck at his place.

There's a gas station in Trona.

John, what day you're planning to leave. If Friday, meet-up at Sand Canyon, off the I14 N, around 6am.

If it's not too late, i would love to join the team. I have ridden through DV a couple of times and driven through around and over it a few more times.

I didn't read all 11 pages of the thread, but is there a route that has been posted besides the Trona pinnacles and Manson trips?
