Headed up to Big Bear today to have a lil offroad fun, nothing to drastic
Ran Holcomb, white mountain and John Bull. JB muched one of my old krawlers, so in the next couple of weeks will have two more MTR's on my pup put Jeep

White mountain has one really nice climb, steep with some small ledges and all loose rocks, like trying to climb up a hill with ball bearings
Was the best part of the day

Same as mine 37's, for the Hammers he runs 42" pitbulls, me just my MTR stickies

Big Bear doesn't have anything that's terribly challenging, but it's always nice to tool around the mountains

As far as I am concerned, the west end of Holcomb needs to have all the small rocks removed

A gatekeeper like the most challengin spot on JB wouldn't hurt either.
We were looking at the entrance to JB and talking about winching a bunch of big rocks down the hill to make that more fun too

I agree... I remember a while back I drove past Holcomb and that Western entrance was awesome. I was by myself and my Jeep was still a baby so I passed on it. It's really ridiculous these guys with rigs not capable of handling the trail making it easy by bringing in rocks and leaving them there.

I know MJR is the AAT for Holcomb... Are there any plans to restore Holcomb into a funner trail again?

They unstacked it a few months ago. problem is those rocks have to disappear or the road builders will stack them again. For bigger challenges, Big Bear is the wrong place. Guess it's time to see if we can get a Cougar Buttes night run together

Yep, guess your right. Too bad Big Bears all we got for close summer wheeling though. I do need to go back to Cougar Buttes, I've only been there once.

Too bad the hammers would beat the piss out of my poor baby Jeep.
