How far is Ershim from the Rubicon ? I am in to run a second trail , but I prefer the sounds of Ershim as the water crossing on Fordyce doesnt sound like fun . In other words I remember when Keith Strong was posting the pics from when the water flow rolled/pinned him while he was crossing it.

Personally I think Ershim has some of the most incredible scenery of any trail on the planet and it is the only jeep trail that runs through the wilderness and has some challenging terrain.
And if the dusy is a little longer than the group is up for, I can provide an amazing full day or two of wheeling in the same area, with some amazing views, and plenty of challenge.

We will definitely need more trails then just the rubicon to make this trip one for the books.

Its about 3.5 hours south Beasley, just past where all the trails I usually run are.

x2, I would like to run the Rubicon but as I've said before, I won't make the drive from MD just for 1 trail. Especially since it's been "modified" to be easier on stock vehicles.

I'd like to hit up a bunch of trails out that way if I make the trip. Ershim, fodyce, whatever else you guys can think up all sound good to me!

8 hours give or take , but if we split the days up hitting trails on they way south it wont be a bad run at all .

I like the idea of running the different trails as we head South .

So we could start on Tahoe side and work south, that would be good also.

That would be cool, some people could pick up the "tour" at any point, and not do everything. We gotta go see Art though. Haha. One day/night in Pismo would also be a blast, especially for any east coasters.....

I know the dates havnt been finalized or anything, but am I right to assume that JV is HOT in the beginning of August? I was sweating out there in the first week of February and I know Art says winter is wheeling season for them out there.

I wouldn't mind getting some practice in out at JV but if it's 120 degrees that might be rather unpleasant lol

Its gonna be hot, we could run a half day, early morning there, then go up to big bear..... perhaps. I think its worth it no matter how hot though! Art will be the word on all this though....

In summer you do JV trails after the sun goes down. Preferably you pick days with a full moon

JV in the summer is a big no go. Atleast for me. Way way to hot to have fun and enjoy yourselves

I personally think a march or April trip to JV then up to pismo then to the rubicon would be fun. or same trip Same above but backwards

JV would be challenging and fun and not to Bad of weather that time of year

Then hit pismo for some dune fun. Again good weather as it will be spring

And good chance there would be SOME snow on the rubicon to make it a lil more challenging and still very beautiful

Also. **** water crossings. My jeep is a rock crawler. Not a boat or submarine. You guys have fun with whatever trail that is. I hate water and mud and will not be subjecting my jeep to that kind of nonsense

Count me in for whatever it ends up being... Just no water haha
