So, I finally came back from the dead.

I've been scarce for the past few months with work, moving to a new place, and largely not having much time for the Jeep. That said, I'm resettled and things have slowed a bit so I'm back at it. South Bay Driveline is finally fabbing my new front driveline up, so I figured I'd plan something out.

Wanted to see if anyone had any interest in running out to Sequoia for a weekend of very light wheeling, camping, and sightseeing around the Hume forest roads? Am loosely planning a brief weekend getaway out there for August 10-11 (Saturday and Sunday), and the girl and I would prefer there be a few others going with.

Was beginning to wonder if you moved to another country of something, lol! Glad to see you're back. We have runs planned each month from June thru October, so hope you can make at least one of them. Your August getaway sounds like fun, but we have a High Lakes run planned for the 3rd-4th of August, so would be a stretch for me doing two runs back to back, but someone else might be interested. Post up some more details when you have time.

Definitely will. I've already printed up at work (company does nothing but commercial printing/blueprinting/graphics etc.) the maps that can be found on the Forestry Service site, namely the MVUM and MVOG maps for the area. There seem to be some nice trails/forest roads due east/southeast of Hume Lake as best illustrated here.

http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_...rdb5405356.pdf

Again, it's nothing wild but I think it should provide a nice weekend getaway. Never been out there myself so I think we're intent on doing the touristy thing. General Grant Grove, Boyden Cavern, some hiking and sightseeing with a bit of wheeling mixed in as well.

I saw the run in July for Slickrock that I do believe I'll make, as I can't see anything that would prevent my being able to attend, so if you'll be on that I'll look forward to meetin' you lot out there!

haha thanks. I've got it printed out as a 36x30 as well as 5 other maps for the Sierras, mostly MVUMs but that one is nice seeing as it handles trails, topography, POIs, OHV staging areas, among many other little spots.

They have a bit more info. on them, as far as the forest roads go and whether or not they're legal to be explored with our Jeeps. I have about 30 maps at the moment, thanks to the company I work for

If anyone wants a copy of one, let me know which one and I can have them printed up at cost. I think it's something like 2$ a sq ft. in B&W and 4$ for color.

Basically just hunt around on the www.fs.usda.gov site and go to the maps section of each site, ie.) http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/sequoia/maps-pubs

The maps are all either in pdf or jpeg format. Layered .pdfs will usually print better but a high-res jpeg should come out just fine. They'll be printing on a $200,000.00 OCE Plotwave 900, so it'll come out as shnaz as it looks on your screen.

Alternately if you go here - http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/ - and select the drop down on the top left, you can select whatever area you like, and again, navigate to the maps & publications part of the page. Usually what you'll be looking for is an MVOG or an MVUM.
