Socially distant run May 17th

Socially distant.....you can stay in your jeep the whole time if you dont get stuck or break. A few friends and I will be running rattlesnake canyon to gold mountain. 31s and lockers, 33s and one locker??? It's really isnt a tough trail, but we'd like to have an easy time.

Post up or pm if you'd like to go.

Re: Socially distant run May 17th

Interested.
What time you guys meeting up? Is the rattlesnake canyon trailhead off of the 247 (Old Woman Springs Rd)? I'll need to find a secure place to park the tow rig in Big Bear.

Very much interested. Are round headlights allowed?

Re: Socially distant run May 17th

Yes, old woman springs rd.

Yes, round headlights are acceptable, but we will make fun if you get stuck.

Trailhead at approximately 8:30-8:45.

Re: Socially distant run May 17th

Is the trailhead well marked? I’d hate to drive all the way out there and not be able to find the meeting spot.

John: What time will you be leaving home? I may just meet you as you head out and follow you, if that’ll work for you. You’re right along the way.

Re: Socially distant run May 17th

Cool. Thanks very much. I found that location on Google Maps yesterday, but wasn’t 100% sure that’d be the actual meeting spot. Now that I am sure, I’ll just meet you there. OPXJ2010 will likely be arriving with me, in his rig.

Re: Socially distant run May 17th

Thanks for doing this, John, and have fun! I will pass, having only 31s and just a rear lunchbox locker...and no real desire to push my Jeep's limits or slow anyone down. But it sounds like a good group... Sorry I'll miss seeing you all!

Re: Socially distant run May 17th

I probably won't be at SCF, either... that's my 55th birthday weekend, and as much as I love my Jeep peeps, I don't think I want to spend it at Calico or working an actual Jeep event .


However I'm hoping that by the end of August we'll have Fiesta Island open again down here in SD, and will be able to do a modified (probably no potluck) Jeep Picnic. Maybe you can come down!

Re: Socially distant run May 17th

I'm bowing out on this run. I'm going up to Renofest a few days later and tagging this trip on the front end is adding up to more driving than I'm up for at the moment. Take pics!
