Hey Peeps,

Does anyone want to caravan up to Big Bear? I plan on leaving Lakewood at 5:30am or 6am on Saturday.

I'll be going up Highway 38. Here's the route I'm taking - MAP (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=15501176393004669506,34.158956,-116.948753&saddr=Lakewood,+CA&daddr=34.070436,-117.182579+to:CA-38+%4034.158956,+-116.948753+to:Big+Bear+City,+CA&mra=dpe&mrcr=0&mrsp=1&sz=13&via=1,2&sll=34.067165,-117.151165&sspn=0.096412,0.209255&ie=UTF8&ll=34.072569,-117.231331&spn=0.192812,0.41851&z=12)

For the guys out in the 909, we met at Main St & the 91 frwy before.

The route E is taking is supposed to be way less switchbacks, way less traffic.....so a few miles longer, but quite a bit quicker.

That's the way I go. I like it because there's less traffic and like Tony said, "less switch backs."

It ends closer the the Discovery Center too.


Anywho.

E, go past all that Mentone crap, and turn off at Live Oak, then to Bryant.
It may be a mile or two longer, but there are only a few lights that way.
Much quicker.

I take the east side of 38 up to BB during the hotter months and take the 18 from the north during the cooler months.
The neat thing about the 38 is once you past Mentone, or Yacaipa you are instantly out of the city and into some nice forested areas.
The nice part of the 18 N route is you have only 20 minutes of climbing and you are there.

thanks for the offer, I don't want to put you out. I pulled the entire intake manifold too and have to redo the fuel line too. I'll give you a call tomorrow and let you know if I get the part.

Sorry for the hijack E, now back to our caravan thread :roflmao::roflmao:

Just curious as to what time and where exactly this caravan as going to be hitting Corona.

Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make the whole trip because I work all weekend but my girlfriend and I were thinking about heading up for a little while on either Fri. or Sat. night.

Thanks, Nick

Watch your speed coming down the grade from Onyx Summit. 2 of the last 3 weekends CHP has been ticketing anyone doing 65 or more as they come down the grade towards Hatchery Rd.
