Big Bear in June

My 40th birthday is in June and my wife and I are going to stay in Big Bear on one of the weekends, either 15-17 which is Big Bear fest. Or I was thinking of staying the week before (June 9-10) instead if members are interested?

Big Bear fest would probably be cool, but looks like it will be extremely busy that weekend plus would rather go with people I know from here and be able to organize our own runs.

Who's would be up for the weekend of the 9th?

Let me know what run you guys plan to do. That's not the best weekend for me because of Father's day, but I might consider it.

Rick- You should post up on MJR too. There's quite a few of them that live pretty much locally up there and they wheel BB all the time. I can't make that weekend.

Yeah, I'll probably wait until about a month in advance and start trying to round up some more people then.

I might have to go BOTH weekends! Once for my Bday and once for Father's day...

We already reserved a cabin for the weekend of the 9th, so I'll be up there. Will do a run on that Saturday.

With Big Bear fest, how strict are they on the requirements? On the link above, the last column is for 'LOCK' and dishpan says '2'. The only one that doesn't require at least one is the historical run which I assume would be a boring fire road?

This is actually why I was thinking about getting a locker for my bday -- was looking at the forest fest page and got pissed off that ALL the runs require a locker. That's why I was looking at the video of Holocomb -- if you guys got the stockers through...

Even Pilot Rock says '1' required and that one isn't even that hard.

Do you know the area? I've never even been up there, but doing the Holocomb run on 4/28.

Like I said above, I'm down for 6/9! Now just figuring out if I'm going to forest fest also.

Cool, I might try to join you on the weekend before running Holcomb...just cant commit as I have alot of work to be done on the rig and dont know how its all going to go. As far as how strict they are, IDK maybe Stan or someone else can answer that. I would think they would hold to it though and not want to drag people through and slow up 15 other people that were properly equipped. With that said they are leaning on the cautious side of the vehicle requirements and that is probably the right way to lean Remember that you have a limited slip rear end and still had some difficulty on Pilot Rock. My first time there without a locker I couldnt make it...thats why I call it "locker hill" cuz I got one and went back by myself and kicks its ass Holcomb is a cool trail and I dont think you will have a problem with it if you get a few spots...

A limited slip counts as a locker. And if u tell them u are locked (when u dont) oh look at that for some reason its not engauging. Gotta get it to the shop i guess. Simple.

Yeah, I found an email address for the person in charge of Forest Fest and sent an email.

Pretty lame if they won't even let me do one of the medium difficulty trails.

According to that chart, they rate Pilot Rock as being hard and Holocomb as medium? Does that sound right to you guys? Besides, Pilot Rock ended in Arrowhead not Big Bear...

Rick-I haven't done Pilot Rock yet, but have done Holcomb a few times and I also help maintain that trail as well; as I'm a crew member with MJR. Holcomb's requirements (suggested) is at least 1 locker and 33's. You'd be fine though in your rig. You did Calico with no problems what so ever. I have no doubt you'd get through Holcomb as well with no issues. A buddy I took a Newbie wheeler; his first crawl, 32's, and I think a 1" or 2" lift. We did John Bull, Dishpan, Holcomb, Gold Mountain and Rattlesnake. He got a little high centered on Dishpan going up, but that was it. Self strapped himself off of it

I'm pretty familiar. I've done from Cleghorn over to 2N17x, Willow Creek, Dishpan, White Mountain, John Bull (without lockers or sliders at that time), Holcomb, and probably a few others. I haven't don'e Gold Mtn though so would like to hit that one some time.

Got a pretty quick reply from one of the people in charge of Big Bear fest:

Quote:
Most are recommendations - limited slip will work in place of a locker with proper application of the brake. We run the trails in groups of 25 so are just trying to make sure we don't slow the entire group down.
You were right Coop! So looks like I'm clear to go! I'll probably pick one of the medium trails.

So here's a newbie question: What does he mean by "proper application of the brake?"

Yeah, maybe we can do Gold Mtn. I haven't done that one either and might be able to recruit some stockers that aren't equipped enough for Big Bear fest!

Self strapped? How does that work? Strap to a tree or something?

Proper app. Of brake is the correct use of of your ebrake. Pulling on the ebrake makes the diff think on side is having issuse turning sending power to the other side (i think). I guess the situation would be if not getting traction apply ebrake to get both wheels spinning.
