Big Bear/Crab Flats Tomorrow Dec 31

We're going to do the now infamous Crab Flats run tomorrow so we can play in the snow. We'll be at Rocky's in Running Springs around 10:30 am. We haven't run this trail yet so some patience might be in order- but directions according to most are pretty clear. Testing out the new CB- Channel 4. I am in a silver JK Sport.

Rocky's
32150 Hilltop Blvd, Running Springs, CA 92382 (909) 939-0501

Road conditions:
Big Bear Road Conditions

Crab Flats, Saturday the Dec 29th.....
SoCal Christmas Fun Run at Crab Flats Road 12/15/12

Van Dusen rd may be chained off. You'll know when you get there. If it is just continue to the dump and you can get to the hwy from there. Have fun and take pictures.

Thanks Gunner. I have a new Go Pro to play with so I'll give it a shot.
Sorry you can't come Jeff. I had plans yesterday or we were gonna drive over to Hemet. I need to hit a trail before I go loco- though I am pretty sure it might be too late.

Eek. Thanks for the heads up. Hoping there will be less people off work tomorrow and/or they'll be party prepping. Looks like it will be just be us so I don't have to worry about being on time at least.
(And not sure the new CB is working yet. No idea what an SWR meter was until I looked at the Firestix install directions.).

We ran the 3n16 and 3n14. Nothing crazy but got real slippery at times.

Thanks L Brito.
I downloaded all the maps on Topo Maps last night so that should help too. The coordinates are great. We're off to a late start. I figure if traffic is too bad we'll turn around and have lunch. Where I live there is always traffic so if I have to sit through some to get to a snowy mountain- worth a shot.

When Rich and I went up on Friday we both sailed up hwy 38 with no issues. When we finished I headed back down 38 straight to Yucaipa in no time and he went through town to 18/330. Lets put it this way, I was on my couch eating dinner and he was just passing Snow Valley.

So beautiful day. Little cold but the sun was shining all day. Great snow pack and even better....found a mud puddle. Taken off video so you have to click on it. If you look closely you'll see a Jeep.

By the way, Van Dusen was closed. It's only about 2.5 more miles to the 18 should anyone have the same issue. The 330 was busy but moving.
