Plan A and B

IMPORTANT AND PLEASE READ...


There’s a 20-30% possibility it will rain late Saturday or early evening, so here’s PLAN A and B:



PLAN A – Clear sky and no rain


Ride as planned to Carrizo and lunch in Pozo, and if we determined that Hi Mountain Rd is closed, I would prefer to turn around and take E. POZO RD. This way, we doubled our dirt miles, approx total of 180, and we get the chance to take Soda Lake Rd (straight line dirt super highway) on our way out (Elk Horn is the winding and hilly dirt road we’ll take on the way in). This route will take us closer to Los Angeles and away from the forthcoming rain.

For those who live in near hw101, the obvious choice is W. POZO RD. which will take you north towards hw58 and hw101.




PLAN B – Hazy sky and no rain


We stay in Carrizo, forget Pozo since we don’t want to be too far in and then get caught by the rain. Carrizo has enough dirt miles which can easily fill in our need. Then sometime mid day, we can go to Taft for cheap but good mexican lunch, then to return to Carrizo and do the rest of the stuff. Most of the road is easy and very easy, however, those who want some challenges (not exactly for nOObs); there’s a secret route (same one WW was talking about) Dave can lead you there as long you keep it a secret. Part of it is privately owned and gated, so you know the drills.

Meanwhile, the rest of us will be in Soda Lake puttering around and will meet with the rest of the group at the entrance sign to Carrizo near HW 166.

IF we ever see rain coming, jump on Soda Lake Rd and head out east to HW166. On the way home, it’s your choice, either take HW166 to Maricopa to FW5 (easiest and quickest) or take the same route we took on the way up back to Ojai (fun and scenic).

we can do a similar ride like this one: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=carrizo+plain



Those who want more dirt riding, there is Quatal Canyon, lots of BIG woops! Not easy, but I did it slow on my 640A. See pdpete's post!#329




any suggestions?...

Have Fun
That cannot and will not be tolerated. The ride must proceed
EXACTLY as outlined and at EXACTLY the pace of the slowest rider.

I was intending to lead people who were interested over Quatal and continually got shot down.

I will not be able to lead tomorrow unless breakfeast takes as long as usual at the Deer Lodge. I anticipate arriving late at the Deer Lodge.

Can't pick upy bike until 8:00 a.m. Due to unforeseen circumstances. At best I'm thinking 8:45 for me at the Deer Lodge. If you FFs are done eating or close to done we'll either catch up or do the loop in reverse and meet you at Pozo Saloon.

Please, if for some reason we arrive at the Deer Lodge after you leave and the restaurant feels obliged to charge the group for my 2 cowboy omlettes rest assured. I have already obtained exact change and will repay you at Pozo when we meet up.

Not What I Had in Mind

[QUOTE=h8chains]IMPORTANT AND PLEASE READ...

Sorry Psychic. That Route was not at all what I had in mind. I was just going to do some offshoots from 33 and nearby roads and secret bars.

There is credit card only gas near mcKittrick. If this turns out to be out and back the same route to/from Pozo gas will definitely be an issue. I'd suggest riding back over Pozo Rd to 58 and then either enjoy the great road that is 58 after Carrizo or heading back into Carrizo and going over Hurricane to McKittrick. Possible stop at the world famous Penny Bar then get credit card gas and go over Hurricane back into Carrizo. Or we could go North on ??? Creek Rd and cut over some really pretty central Cal land and then come back to 58.

Gas is an issue. Give it some thought.

Cerro Noroeste

Cerro Noroeste is the preferred route back to the 5 from Carrizo if this becomes an out/back ride for western LA area riders.

maricopa/carrizo/pozo then pozo/carrizo/maricopa

gas may be an issue?

from maricopa to carrizo to pozo, then back to carrizo to maricopa, artboy and i were both on gs, made it back to maricopa. it's exactly 170 miles total. so, if you can't make that distance in 1 tank...bring extra gas. i can bring 2 msr bottles if you want to borrow them.

hopefully if rruuger rides his 640A, then that will take care of all our needs.

The 170 miles what kind of terrain is that on? I get about 210 to 230 on the road. But I only get about 160 to 190 dirt. Ben

Thumb Plans A, B, and C

The current conditions are pretty good out here right now. I rode up the Elkhorn Grade on the way home from work, expecting to see some sections of mud, yet it was quite dry. The odds are good that we will stay ahead of the storms. If we make the Pozo Saloon, there is a pavement route out of there. I will haul 2 gallons of extra gas in case it is needed.

I may eat breakfast at ¨The Place¨ in Ventucopa, and meet all of you at the Ozena fire station on 33 south of Lockwood Valley Road. When is the estimated time of arrival for this small army at Ozena and Maricopa?

thanks dave for the latest update! i'm pretty sure the FFs will be happy to make it to pozo. this is the best deal in the west even we don't make it through hi mountain.

after breakfast, i would think we will be ready to hit the road between 10-10:30 am. from deer lodge to lockwood valley is 36 miles or 30 minutes. whoever riding in front must keep an eye for your bike.
