John Bull March 4th

I was thinking of running John Bull Saturday March 4t. Anybody interested? Meet up point Discovery Center at 9:00 am. Leaving at 9:45
We should be hitting the trail head by 10:15 am.
I personally ran this trail a few times but I would like for someone to take the lead if possible.
The weather should be interesting, because the forecast is calling for 70% chance of snow showers.
Requirements for this run are as follow:
- 35" tires minimum (yes some people ran it on stock. Up to you)
- at least 1 locker
- front and rear recovery points

I had to change the date from Feb 18th due to weather issues. and great advises from you guys.

Hey Mallavoider!...been a while. I'm looking for a run either that weekend or the next if this is going on still. Are you sure John Bull is doable with all the snow? I was up there in Jan and there was too much snow to do any technical trails. Not sure if much has melted yet.

If not, we could meet up and do another run at lower elevation.

What's up Jesse! I think JB is doable, someone was up there last Sunday and reported not much snow on the trail. I am looking forward to the run. We can meet somewhere down here and caravan up

Put us down as a strong maybe, depending on the weather.. Not interested if there will be any significant snow.
Other than Monday, the rest of the week looks clear.
If you are looking for a bigger group, I can post it on my Facebook page.

I have done it before without lockers but it is challenging. Have you run the trail in the past?

Mallavoider...are you ok with rigs in the group not having at least one locker?
It's your call ...but it goes against your requirements...

True, but I know her and she can wheel. Other people not really unless they have ran the trail in the past. The requirements that I have set so people have an idea of the degree of difficulty. You are right we should stick to it, especially if it snowy

The ground should be wet and probably snowy I think that you will have a hard time especially thru the gatekeeper. Since it is your first time running the trail, I would probably recommend skipping it this time and come out at our next one in the dry. It is about having fun and not having to struggle and possibly break something.

I think we should air down at the center. That way we are ready to go once we hit the gatekeeper. CB channel 23?
