Trail Leader for Deep Creek/Holcomb Creek

I will be glad to lead this run on Saturday!

I will ask that folks have these minimum requirements:
- tow-points front and rear
- 3" of lift and 31" tires
- working spare tires within 1" of other tires on your rig (and lug wrench/locks if applicable)
- first aid kit
- jack capable of lifting your rig high enough off of the ground
- fire extinguisher
- tow strap (no metal hooks)
- working seat belts (sounds crazy, but safety first)
- Rock rails (not mandatory) - your choice, it's your rig.

I have been with folks with no lockers and they did make these trails with no problem, but they had good skills and listened to the spotter.

These are fun trails, and some of the best Big Bear has to offer.

They are rated "most difficult" by Forest Service.

There is about a 20 min drive on the road to the start of Deep Creek. We will disconnect and air-down at the trail head. Due to this, we need to depart on time from the meeting spot (Discovery Center) at 9:00 AM sharp.

Please top off your fuel before coming to the Discovery Center. There will be no stopping, unless an emergency or issue, on the way to the trail.

Please post here if you are interested in this run or have questions about the trails.

I will be there! Heck, i have two Jeeps (well one is HERS), Odette will be out of town, and my mother-in-law is coming down to watch Kaleb. I will leave as soon as she gets to the house. I am trying to get her to come down Thursday evening, but it will probabl be close to 10:00.

So, you coming JC? You doing this run? You camping or Motel6'ing it?

Re: Trail Leader for Deep Creek/Holcomb Creek



Santa likes it when I lead because I keep a good pace. No constant stopping. But of course, I'll stop if someone needs help.

I hate being tailgunner behind all the open/open guys.

I'll be there Friday afternoon through Sunday. I'm not camping and I'm not staying at Motel 6. I'm checking out a cabin rental. I figure if I get 8 people and we share a place, it'll be pretty cheap. Plus, the place has a hot tub. And a pool table and foosball table. Hear that Kyung? Get your A-game ready.

I already have 5 confirmed. Wanna join us Robert? But remember...no kids.

Who said anything about 8 guys? I said 8 "people". Women are people too.

Did they change the rules and make women people to without telling me?(maybe in Korea)
