once we made it to rountop in hesperia, it was 30 miles of dirt all the way to holcomb valley.

since i was leading and relying on the tiny gps screen of my 60csx, we missed the turn and ended up in bowen's ranch hot spring. a nice guy named mike gave us a direction and we backtracked until we saw coxey.


roger suggested that i have to break my 4K post and keep on taking pictures giving me a reason to post more...so i did


the lc4 and lc8 are both at home on this terrain


these guys have a big problem...they want to know how many miles to the nearest pavement even though they're not plated


fixing a flat without removing the wheel wait a minute, can you put another tube duct taped to the swing arm and if you need it just cut off the bad one and unravel the spare....what a bright idea...


the sign in the background says apple valley is 15 miles behind us


and the sign in front assured us that we're not lost....

i don't know the trail # but if you're coming from hesperia, you take bowen left to coxey, keep on going, and then you will see the sign to big flat and fawnskin.

OK that sounds like 3N14 to 3N16 .

How far would it be to get there (Bowen /Coxey) from Johnson valley?

no idea...my guess will be 3 - 4 hours depending how fast you ride.
