Talking Time for some Yellow Jacket & MJT OlllllllO- June 20- 22

SORRY- THIS RUN IS CAPPED

Hey everybody!

Yellow Jacket is a trail off of Lockwood/Miller Jeep Trail in Fraizer Park. It's a cool trail with pretty scenery, some small rocks and a flowing creek at the end of it. It's pretty brushy, green in some spots, and it dead ends.

I'm not one to worry about a couple scratches on my Jeep when wheeling, but on this trail, before we can wheel it all the way through, we usually need to hack away some of the branches/bushes in a spot or two, so we don't completely scratch up our junk.

I have spoken to my Ranger friends, as I do every year, and have gotten the OK to use clippers to do a more thorough clean-up, if need be. In fact, they welcome it. We will also pick up any trash we see along the way, so bring a bag or two. It’s a fun group effort and usually doesn’t take but 15-30 minutes with everyone, depending on how badly it is still overgrown.

We'll run Lockwood, Yellow Jacket and Miller! So bring gloves, clippers, or something similar, (nothing power operated), bug repellant, a bag to throw away any trash we find on the trail, food and something cold to drink. Don't forget the Crazy!!

Your rig should have tow points and sliders. These trails are rated black diamond, but it's nothing a stock rig couldn't do.

I plan on camping Fri-Sun; June 20th-22nd, you can camp or make it a day run Saturday June 21st.


CAMP:Chucupate Campground * 1st come first serve. Fires are allowed with a permit. I’ll take care of that and print one out. This campground is pretty and full of trees and little critters.

DIRECTIONS TO CAMP: Drive to the Ranger’s Stationą34580 Lockwood Valley Rd. Frazier Park, CA 93225. From there, it’s 3 miles up the road with a big sign. 30 spots available accommodating RV’s up to 24’. All sites have a table, fire pit and there is a bathroom. Whoop Whoop!!

Meet place Saturday: In front of the Ranger station. 34580 Lockwood Valley Rd. Frazier Park, CA 93225. We’ll just line it up along the side of the road !

Time: 930am Please be on time or early Saturday. I’ll leave on schedule! We will air down at the trailhead.

*There’s a Flying J as you exit the 5 hwy. Get gas if you need it, so plan for that extra needed time! 42810 Frazier Mountain Park Rd,Frazier Park, CA 93243*

I will cap this run at 15 rigs due to space limitations at the end of Yellow Jacket. If you aren't sure you can make the run, please wait to post until you are. Sorry, but no maybe lists for me

As a bonus, we can run trails 118/119 Sunday..easy pretty ride..


When posting up, please let me know when you're coming, and if you're camping at all. Please bring wood if camping!

I'm ready for Crazy!! Who else?!!

Ranger friend asked if I could get a few pics of us on YJ trail..we'll have to come up with some fun poses This run is always fun..we get dirty, sweaty, you may don a couple scratches, and it's just a dirty, fun, quick process. Team work!!

We can do lunch either at the dead end of YJ or Lockwood/Miller crossing

Mitch- Parker's friend from the last run just signed on from FB..guess we didn't scare him off last time He's come back for some more! He makes 8 rigs already

Since when does it have to be warm for Mandy? Or Actually Tina and Lorie nowadays. All they need is a bachelor party in the area.

Cool

Geesh!! Ok guys, little update. This run blasted off. I only just posted yesterday. I only wanted 15 rigs. I figure I'll book 20 b/c there's always someone who doesn't show or post they aren't showing

Here's the deal...2 things.

1. If you are not going to be able to make it, PLEASE post up. Please don't just flake. It's inconsiderate of fellow wheelers, wheelers who wanted to come and I had to cap it, and also, I put a lot of work into making sure these runs are fun... It's disrespectful to me when you don't at least cancel either by posting, text or PMing me.



2. We now have 2 young children onboard for this run. G rated until they are not within eye sight or earshot! I know it'll be a challenge, but you have to respect them.

Please check out the first post of this thread periodically for a current list of who's going and any changes.

Hey Girl, now that you've become a celebrity not sure if I am worthy enough to wheel with ya. Lol. I am considering wheeling Calico this weekend, arrive late afternoon Saturday. Wheel Sunday Monday. Is anyone going out that way. So far it's just me & Brian. If not Calico I would love to try Cougar Buttes. Anyone?

Lorie,

What was the malfunction with your drive line last trip? I hadn't heard anything about it.

Sure! Welcome to the forum and my run!

If you're camping Saturday night, you can either wheel with your Jeep loaded, or feel free to roll into camp early and set up. We will roll out of camp at 915am to begin meeting everyone in front of the Ranger station.

Lorie

Thanks for the welcome. I'll leave my gear at the camp site so I can keep the weight off my Jeep.

Roger Dodger!! I don't wheel with a full tub either. It's unnecessary unless you're doing the Rubicon or something. My rig is weighed down enough as it is now with all the mods

Well, it's going to be a Very long wait for this run. I normally would be wheeling in between this one, but have an upgrade going in..so need to wait

If anything changes for you and you can't make it, please be sure and post or PM me. Thanks!

Lorie please add a friend of mine on a tentative list. He will know for sure no later than the week before and I will pass it on so we can open a spot up if he can't make it.. He is training a new puppy in Jeeping and if it's ready he'll be there. Camping Fri-Sun. Name is Bill.

Just have him post up..or you post up when he knows for sure. The only list I'm keeping, is a list for 100% solid wheelers going. If we hit the limit, I can start a Stand By list in case anyone cancels

It's a challenge to get anything over 15 rigs at the end of Yellow Jacket. And now you've seen first hand how long it can take with 15-20 rigs going up Lockwood/Miller.

Just trying to keep it fair to everyone..and without a bunch of different lists. Still like me?

Thanks for understanding; hopefully Bill will too. I used to keep "maybe" lists, but I don't see the point in them...and it's just another list to keep up on. If someone can go, great, and post up..until they know for sure, they're all on a maybe list. Kind of pointless and doesn't mean anything. I couldn't do it for Bill, when I'm not doing it for anyone else..just staying fair..nothing personal.....and it takes time to plan, organize and keep up on hosting runs..I don't need another list..know what I mean?

I hope he can make it!
