P.s. JV then up to big bear would be fun to! I love big bear. A couple fun lines and some good scenery as well. It makes for a good fun day when ya get some nice weather. Which happens quite often up there when it's not winter

If you do the Rubicon too early, you'll end up doing a lot of this!

Well, if we head down south to JV / Big bear, at the very least those who wish to, could run something short in the morning like Choc. Thunder like I did a couple weeks ago. The heat was a non issue, and it was one of the funnest things I've ever done in my Jeep. Not everyone will be up to run it, but there's good spectating right there for those of you who just want a little taste of JV and for those who do run it...... I think it'll be a highlight. I'm down for whatever though.... just want everyone to get the most for their efforts.

Lu, not sure what you paid to get your rig shipped, but I wonder if all us East coast/Midwesterners could get a good rate if we filled up an entire hauler, then scheduled him to haul us all back a week or so later.

Thats not a bad idea if you can make it worth the drivers time. More then likely he'll have a load out of cali right off the back.

You could likely speak with one company and discuss the locations of all jeeps being shipped and potentially work out a "package deal"

Im sure its possible just a little more leg work to coordinate

I'd even be willing to drive a few hours to meet in one place as a group. His many vehicles typically fit on one of those car carriers? Looks like maybe 9.

Seems I'm alittle late to the party, but I'll 2nd,3rd,err...10th the idea of hitting up Big Bear and JV as well. There both quite scenic in there own right and are quite conveniently co-located. However when it comes to JV I'll just play wannabe Baja racer on the lake bed and leave the hardcore rock crawling to the "big boys".

There is a lot you guys could do there..... with good spotting and a sensible approach, hooking up the winch line if needed. Not that I know my way around out there..... I just know how capable your rigs are. I think Turkey Claw would be plenty doable for everyone. And Chocolate Thunder was a thrill for me. You guys would love it.

Ershim is probably 6 hour drive from the Rubicon, there are some other great trails in the area and lots of lakes and streams full of German, Brook and Rainbow trout that are sweet as candy.

less than an hour from Ershim you can wheel Swamp Lake which is a really fun trail with more to offer than the Rubicon in my opinion and Bald Mountain which is thousands of acres of solid granite, its like Moab but granite instead of Slickrock with everything from beautiful vistas to some very challenging routes. There are a bunch of other routes in a very small area, keep in mind this is the high sierras in addition to Rubicon style terrain the weather is very nice. I am game for whatever you guys decide.
