I don't know about that. With the fire and all that it could, so hope for no rain.

Are you talking about the Jiggler pump? The Harbor freight works ok, but I can't getthe hose to turn round again. It's flatdue to the way they roll it up. I'mgoing to replace the hose with something else.

Instead of ordering it, you can stop by the Harbor Freightin Chico.... And use the 20% off out of most 4x magazines.

So Jimbob and I went and scouted the area a bit. This can be done in a stock with some help.There could be some damage to everyone. I broke my swaybar link and hit my back bumper really good. So with that said it was one of the best trail I have done.
The camping we saw was so-so. No bathrooms and no camp fires at all. So we may need to found a new area to camp. (If anyone knows the area and can help with this please do.) We were looking at staying at lake oroville. Its close to the area and has full bathrooms (Pay Showers)LOL
Still have some more planning but wanted to keep everyone updated.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Here's a few select pics of our scouting adventure.

Met up at Safeway in Paradise....

A whole lot of this just to get to the trailhead...


Finally, we get to the fun stuff!

It all seemed innocent enough going down to the second lake we visited....

Poser shot at said lake...

Then things got a little interesting....







Had to stop to repair a little trail carnage....

Didn't get a whole lot of pics since I was solo and was taking them while trying to keep my rig upright, lol!

Back side of the stair step gets lots of rear bumpers, especially if you go off of it on the left side as going down. If you want more wheeling, you can go into Morris. I haven't come in from Hwy 70 but you can enter at Rock creek or Tobin and I hear thatís a fun run. The trail is pretty tame but going out to the end of Ben Loman has a view of Beldon on Hwy 70 looking one direction and Lake Almanor when you look in the other direction.

Depending on you guys want to do, you may look at staying at the Bambi inn in Butte Meadows. They have cabins that you can stay in for the first night then travel into the High Lakes the next morning.

So we can go in from Hwy 70? We ran out of time since it was a 3-4 hr drive home. I hope to make one more trip up before the run.

That was a sound I care not to hear too often! When he came down off that ledge he hit the corner of his rear bumper dead square! Pretty sure that was what broke a weld on the tire carrier. Thankfully, he spotted me going down it and I was able to miss the ledge. Great info BTW, thanks for sharing!
