I would say it was defiantly harder than anypart of the rubicon, more like some sections of fordyce. If it wasnt dark already and i wasnt meeting up with other guys i would not have done it but couldn't see how hard it was until daytime the next morning.

im down to go. we could try and head to bear lake or pipejam lake really wanted to go there just ran out of time when scouting.
Wish I could go! Saturday's run won't be very challenging for you, so glad you get to do a little hard core stuff before my scenic tour, lol!

How would you make a day trip out of coming here from Petaluma? LOL

Droze, the entrance may have been changed since the last time you came up. It's filled with smaller boulders now so I think I could make it without being winched.

I found out my wife has to work Thursday, so I have to find someone to watch the kids if I'm going to go.

I have driven up to Loon Lake and back to do a snow run up there. I'll drive up to 3-4 hrs for a good run. Nuts I know.

Hell yeah! It's not the destination, it's the journey!

I've been trying to open a weekend, but i cannot let guys who aren't properly trained in gun sales take a show, so i need to concentrate hard on training at this time .

a snow trip would be great later in the year or the beginning of next year. The jeep is ready for that and id like to get a good one in this winter before i park it in the garage to begin the next step of the transformation this winter early spring.
Well since this thread has turned into something else. When you do find some time to do the run, why don't you start a new one.

I'm from Minnesota. So I don't do snow anymore, unless I have to.
