Head out from camp at 6:30
That place has the best " UNBEATABLE FREE STEAK IN THE CITY", and now I might even sneak out of the office by noon!

My thoughts on the ride up, free juicy steak, free juicy steak, free juicy steak......

havent heard of any recent closures in that area.

take your light (small displacemanet) bikes up gold moutain/jacoby canyon and some single track with us sat. You shouldnt have any problem with a bike you can pick up and carry out if you get stuck.

Nottinghams is pretty good too, but theres a ton of places to eat Im sure we wont have any difficulty.

Exactly why I opted to avoid john bull trail, we shouldnt have any trouble they tend to hang out in a few select areas (they spend 8 hours going 5 miles). The hard loop Im leading may run into some of them but hopefully we will be on the trails before they get going. theres plenty of room to get by them on gold moutain (the big bikes may have a bit of trouble). But for the most part they arent too big of a hassle, just get on there butt, rev your enging (honk your horn) and theyll move. Or you can do the baja method, honk/ram/repeat as necessary.

Ill try to find out where they are going to be so others can adjust there route if they need to.

Whats annoying is when they decide to stop in the middle of a trail or 2 rut road for 25 minutes to listen to their leader talk about the trees. No way around 25 jeeps clogging the road.

Yea, what happens if it's hundreds of jeeps? I was told by a freind of mine that lives in Big Bear City that this is a HUGE outing for the jeeps guys. Oh well............

Message Board

I packed a clipboard that we can use as a message board at the camp. We'll use it to let each other know where we went to eat, what times the rides start, etc.

I'm in spot #123. Can't forget it, just count out loud to 3.
