Big Bear Trip.

BIG BEAR TRIP SEPT 11TH and 12TH.

The trails range from stock 2wd can make it to ouch.

Camp sites are sold out but if you still want to go there are plenty of hotels/motels.

We are staying at Pine Knot campground.
Big Bear Campgrounds and Picnic Areas
We are all sharing spaces too.
The spaces are 40 feet long and up to 8 people per site, $5 per extra vehicle after the first one but only two vehicles allowed per spot but there is parking on the street outside the camp site.
877-444-6777 or you can do it online at Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov

Make a reservation. Grandpappy is wanting to share a space with somebody but he is sleeping in his station wagon (ZJ)
Everybody is splitting the cost of the sites to save bux.


People going:
Chris, Krista and no dogs this time (Camping Site 36) 33's some lift locked front and D35
Rik, Betsy and two tax deductions (Camping Site 36) 33's some lift 8.8, D30 open diff
Richie, wife and kid (Don't know if camping or Motel) 33's lotsa lift D30, D35 open diff

Food: Bring your own lunch and snacks for the trail but for dinners potlucks have worked well in the past so post up something you may want to bring. For Breakfast we can do potluck or bring your own just let me know which way you want to go. I will probably be bringing a full sized propane BBQ to the campsite.


Friday Dinner: Fend for yourself since everyone will be showing up at different times.


Saturday Breakfast(Burritos): Rik will bring eggbeaters, Chris will bring some sausage, Jbolty has tortillas, cheese, salsa and everything else for the burritos, Gomez will bring OJ and some pastries. Sam will bring bacon (precooked if possible) KraZeDav will bring Tuscan cantaloupe


Saturday Dinner: I will bring BBQ pork, Jbolty has Corn, KraZeDav will bring potatoe salad. Sam has dinner rolls. JeepnKal has hot dogs. Sebastian has chicken breast.

Sounds good, hopefully I can get the time off and a few bucks put aside for food and beverages.

I'm very interested. Lately I have been swamped with work and all sorts of non-jeep related stuff and have not have time to sit still to think about it.

Aug 28-29 maybe?

I can't do the 28 I have to be in LA that day. I am thinking the first weekend in September would be good if everyone else can do it.

Maybe Spet 4-5?

I'd love to go.
Work has been really slow so My funds are tight.
Who wants to buy me gas.
Chris, do you know any decent/cheap motels that allows pets up that way.
Got to bring my hood ornament
Might be cheaper than gas for the RV.
Last time I was in Big Bear was '04 and that trip was the spark that got me to buy a Jeep.

Cheap would be motel 6 in Big Bear city and as of last weekend it was 59 bucks a night but I don't know if they allow animals but you could probably sneak it in unless it is a 700 pound wolverine. I will look more into it and let you know. Or you could tent camp for like 10 bucks a night on the lake in the camp ground which happens to be about 50 feet from the forest enterance.

Also it is looking like the first weekend in September I believe the 4th and 5th.

That date looks like it works for me.
Hopefully my Aussie is back from the factory by then. If not, I have a winch if needed. The trails aren't that bad anyway.
Maybe I'll just bring Betsy's Avalon instead. Put some 31's on it.

If I owned a car I could bring it too but the best I got is Kristas explorer on 20's but it has 4wd so it's no match.
