Johnson Valley, 10-27-12

Here is the plan. We're going to be running primarily Bullfrog Trail with a mixture of trails that collide. But the main trail will be Bullfrog. I don't think I've ever lead this trail before, but I have been there a few times.


Trail Description:

This trail has many different obstacles for lots of different experienced drivers. Some but not all have bypasses. We recommend you bring a CB radio for communications. This trail calls out for 3 Hours and could take up to 4-5 hours depending on situations we might encounter. So, please keep this in mind. Everyone starts the trail and we will all finish the trail.

Ahhh Bull Frog, the trail that started it all for us. Good trail shame it is so far away, like all trails from here. Won't be joining ya on this run but, will be looking forward to the footage. Since you are there ya might as do Cake Walk. Two trails cross one another several times. THere is a nice crack to cross in Cake Walk with a good down hill too. Got the pucker going on those two.

Have any of you ran this trail before?

Has anyone got a GPS point - point on running bullfrog? .gpx

If we can get us four on this trail it could be really fun and we can have a pretty good pace.

So it looks like we may have enough interest to run this trail together.

I will create a formal plan tonight, re-modify the OP, and have a list of people who are going and the usual maybe's.

The Plan: Run Bullfrog and Extra Credit.

Just wondering if anyone would be interested in running this? If no interest, we may end up running with the guys going up to Big Bear area.

Our last time out, and I would be capturing footage.

I can take care of that for you. For future reference, it's much easier to get that done if you report the first post and ask to have it done in the reason box, instead of hoping a staff member will accidentally stumble upon it, which is what I did.
