Man, that looks like so much fun. Beautiful area, and that trail is the kind stuff I like to play in. Jim and Gene, thanks for the scouting report.
That said.... I am in the process of changing jobs at my company, with continuous training over the next two weeks. I don't know what my hours will be at the time of this run. I may be working through Friday night and into Saturday morning. My work days are going to be pretty irregular for a while, at the very least through Christmas. So, I have to bow out.
Sucks for pre-planned wheeling with a group, but this is something I have waited years to do (as in the last ten, to be exact), and in the long run is a good move on my part. Plus the extra bucks will mean a RTT for the trailer that much sooner.
I'll miss seeing you all again. But, it's not the end of the world. Maybe a snow run after the new year?
Dang! Who's gonna do the flaming mohawk? You'll be missed my friend! Best of luck with the job training, and hope to see you on the next adventure!
If you donít want to camp, call the Bambi Inn, Outpost or the Mercantile in Butte Meadows. They all have places to stay. If youíre looking for a town, Paradise would be the closest. I donít think Magalia has a hotel. Iím not sure but Philbrook has a campground and fires may be allowed in the campground area.
Who knows, maybe weíll get some weather and the fire restrictions will be lifted.
