    xplosuv we will see you there. I will be sending directions how to get there next week and a meeting place for those that want to go up friday night after work because of the time change it will be easy to follow me up. I'll bring the Ice.
    Chevygal the camp site is free But we do need fire permit's
    and i will get them. There is a small problem for restroom's there is no port-a-pot bring a shovel and do what the bears do.

    Going in the bushes is fine by me.... heck at Hollister the bathrooms were gross. No offense to anyone... but what the heck were you guys eating? I had to hold my breath a few times! [​IMG] So the bushes were looking good. [​IMG] Anyhow let us know if we can do anything to help plan... (like bring stuff and so on) and I'm sure everyone will help if they can..... [​IMG]

    Well things look good for this weekend. So far there will be 9-10 trucks. I am taking that friday off on the 9th just to finish packing and 1 truck is going up in the mourning to make sure we get the fire permits and about 1/2 the camp site.

    I need to know who else is going up friday after work?

    Hey Brad,
    Do you have a map to get there? or any info on camp sites. I just heard on the news that the fire season was extended and they might not allow burn permits?

    I was just there Wednesday and Thursday. Very nice! There are lots of trails and rock crawling locations. I took some pictures so maybe I can get them posted for all to see. I would love to go again but I work weekends. During the week I was the only one out there. The temperature got down to about 25 so be prepared for a chilly night, build a nice fire but be careful as it is really dry around there.

    Damn! That sounds like fun. I havent been wheeling in about 9 months. But then again, that's how long, my trucks been apart. I'm still tampering with the engine I'm installing in my 84 K5. It's an LT1. Complicated, so it won't be done until I fuigure out all the EFI and ECM stuff. It'll be done soon though, and I'm glad there are enouph of us here in N Cal to do this kind of stuff. I'll be there next time. I would come just to watch but I'm ashamed of my temporary car I'm driving right now. You guys would eat me alive if I showed up in it. Have fun guys.

    Friends don't let friends drive fords
