Hmmm. I may need to move this to 1pm, as the recital in La Jolla doesn't end until 1pm. Let me know if this is a problem; thanks.

Any one part of a jeep club near irvine. I'm really getting Into offroading and looking to try out some new trails with people who know what they're doing.

Please provide a trail report, and I hope you stopped at the lookouts along the way. Forgot to tell you that to reach the peak you either walk one mile uphill or find a way to bypass the gate! But there are great views at some turnouts along the way.

Might meet up with you newbs sometime and lead a run. You'll have to let me know if you want it to be a bunny run or something that stretches your experience.

Hi Tom H.,

Tom, Cristy and family, and I and my brother got together on Sunday for this trail, which was beautiful! We did stop at several of the lookouts, and then took the rather well-trodden bypass all of the to the top. The view was breathtaking from up there, particularly near the Forestry Service equipment, with the 360 degree views.

I'd welcome the opportunity to have you lead a run and hit some more advanced trails. The most challenging run I did was Jacoby Canyon in Big Bear, which is considered moderate.

Ditput, so you were able to drive around the gate? Let me know yes or no because last time I was up there, there was no bypass, only a wall of rocks. Always wanted to drive that last mile to the tippy-top.

As for more advanced trails, you'll have to let me know if you can get free for an entire day. I think you're both from SD County, as am I. Also, whether you want to wheel near places like Anza, Ramona, Hemet, which are 60-90 minutes north, or near places like Jacumba, which are 90 minutes east. I could get you to Valley of the Moon and the upper border fence in the Jacumba Wilderness, awesome places that will blow your mind. They're my favorite spots and we can avoid the really challenging places.

Closer to home, I've always wanted to do the Otay Mesa trails near the border but I don't know them, so it's always a bit of a learning process, meaning we might have to turn around a time or two.

Also, do you and the others have CB radios and the ability to air down and (more importantly) air up?

Wow, I'm jealous -- will probably squeeze in a morning trip to the top on Saturday with my 13-year old daughter, who loves to look at the wildlife. Never made it to the top previously. It takes some big-time jeeps with huge lifts to make bypass trails, and I'm guessing the rangers are mad as wet hens about it. They'll no doubt lease a bulldozer and try and close off access soon. Nice pics.

See my previous reply about future runs in east county --

Re: E. County runs, speaking for myself, I'm flexible. If it's a weekend, I can get away for an entire day. I've done two runs in Anza Borrega: Fish Creek Wash and Oriflamme Canyon. I don't have a CB, but happy to get a hand held unit, and I do carry a pressure gauge with a release valve and an air compressor.

The trails you suggest above sound great!

Cristy and Tom1, are you in? Did the three of you air down before ascending Black Mtn?

If we head east to Jacumba, airing down will be important for a better ride. We ought to be able to share compressors when we air up as long as we have two and a little patience. Looking at the pics, one of you has stock tires but airing down is no problem even with stock 4-season radials. I did it with mine for many runs over two years.

CBs help us communicate on a long run that has some decision points. Not essential but those without will wish they had it.

Airing down would have made the trip up and down Black Mountain much easier, especially the rough areas at the top. There's more surface area to grab on a rocky surface and less slippage when on loose rocks or soft dirt. Also, a much softer ride.

As for a day to get out -- let's coordinate this via pm. Jacumba can get hot in summer but the altitude is somewhat high (3,000 feet) and I've done it when it's 90 deg and felt comfortable in the shade of my soft top. I've got family vacation so I don't come up for air on a weekend until late July.

PM me ASAP

Tom1, I've been trying to reach you about the outing on 8/24 but your mailbox on WF is full so you can receive nothing. Clean it out and PM me ASAP. We're on of course.
