Jim-Bob and I and our brides did a pre-run today over the route we are going to go on Dec. 1st. There were only a few patches of snow here and there, but nothing to have to drive through. That may very well change by Dec. 1.
Here are a few pictures of the trip, starting out with the Oak Flat Camp ground. They just now started charging for it. It is $5.00 per day

If it does not snow by Dec.1st this will be pretty much a senic run with very little 4x4ing and a chance of light pin stripping in a couple of places.
If it snows, and depending on how much snow, that could all change on how much 4x4ing we will do. The top of Hull mountain..... which we go over the top of is 6,873 feet.
Here are a few more pictures of the trip and area.

It was a great day of scouting for Craig's run! Thanks again for letting us tag along! The weather was great for scouting, warm and clear. Most of the snow had melted from the recent storm. I imagine we'll see more white stuff come Dec 1st. The Elk were awesome! Couldn't believe they were right there at the campsite! Here's a few teaser shots from the day.

I think Craig has something in mind if the weather is mild and snow is light. There is trail 65 that looks, well, challanging! We didn't have time to take it, but I'm sure it'll challenge even the most brave soccer dads! Hope you don't mind losing some of that simulated wood paneling Ron! LOL!

Also you will need to have enough gas to go 80 to 100 miles. Driving our TJs, when we made the loop and got back into Oak Flat camp ground we had put about 80 miles on and that was starting out from Upper Lake. We still had a half tank in our TJs. I know some older Jeeps like CJs have smaller tanks. So if you have a smaller tank and can't make at least 80 to 100 miles on one tank, you might want to bring extra gas.

Don't worry, there are tons of trails that parallel the main road up there. If there is a good amount of snow the main road will be plenty challenging enough, if not, the side trails will always be there!

Yes.... there are some challenging side trails. I have one good one in mind for those who want to take it. Not everyone has to take it. It links up again into the main road for those that don't want to take it. Fun for everyone.
And like XBCasey said.....if it snows the main road will be challenging enough.

Challenging would be if you go with no doors!

Hey Craig, what did you think of that drive on Eel River Rd back to Potter Valley? I think Gene would have a field day going thru the mud puddles! LOL! My jeep wasn't so bad until we hit that section of road!
