I think that depends on how much falls between now and then.

It looks like we might get hit with some moisture in the next week.

I'll be interested in a run as soon as Hwy 4 opens, its closed just before Lake Alpine, which is the head of the trail.

Stroker?

And after further reviewing Slick Rock.... I think I know what I'm doing when the spring gets here and the snow starts to melt away. I'm actually quite keen on camping out up there.....

Is Slick Rock up past Angels camp and Murphy's? I heard it was a fun but challenging trail.

Congrats John on getting that engine back in there! She'll be stronger than ever now. Maybe you can be ready to make the run on the 16th? Look up Summit Springs Run.

Fun stuff. I've not yet decided if I'll be going or not. I know the Mooneyham's so if I do go, it's likely I'll be in/around their setup area. As it stands now though, the girlfriend and I are planning on making a trip of it next year so I may just watch it online this year... we shall see.

I'll start a run thread on it after the Summit Springs run. For those that have been to Hollister, I may need to call upon your help for best places to stage and any worthwile trails to go on being that I've never been.
