DaK Since you are from the East coast and not out here in the desert. Ensure you have at LEAST 1 gallon of water per person, per day and ensure they DRINK IT ALL everyday. Dehydration has a way of sneaking up on people out here. Air is very dry even when in Big Bear.

I never see it on the jeep trail but kids find the darnest things, become familiar with our wildlife such as spiders and snakes and oh, the scorpions. Got stuff out here that will kill ya dead and also make you sick for a very long time. Don't want to be pokin a brown recluse... They don't take to kindly to it. Don't mean to scare ya but the last thing you want is Jr. playing with the pretty black spider with a red hr glass on her belly.

As for your list, didn't see it in your mods but, CB radio goes a long way out here. And if ya can help it, don't wheel alone. We have a SPOT for emergencies.

Good luck and have fun. OH duct tape. More than sure three days into the trip you will find lots of uses for it. Probably won't act on them but you will want to.

suicideking That's why I went with Evo. It was around $400 for the 3 piece skid set. River Raider you can probably only get 1 skid for that price.

Definitely work Big Bear in if you can. You could wheel every day for a week and still not hit all the trails. For your current build (no lockers) I would suggest Holcomb. Anything harder and you would probably want a locker.

Briefly read your other thread. I'd say go with skids/armor. Evo makes a 3 piece skid set that covers many of the essentials. Other than that, add diff covers, LCA skids front and rear.
Thanks! I had heard of Big Bear from my mountain bike days but hadn't even thought about it for this trip. Just looked at my route and we will be going right by it so we will plan on checking it out.

I hadn't checked out the Evo skid set but I will. Been looking at the River Raider system but it seems pretty pricey. But maybe they all are.

Thanks again!

In CA this summer....have some questions

Hey all,

Planning a mega trip with my family this summer and I have some questions for those who live in the areas we are planning on visiting. I posted the trip details over in the JK section located here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/rea...ep-226267.html

Would greatly appreciate any valuable input you might have.

I've been in CA several times for work but it has been off the plane, to an office and back on the plane for the most part. Made it up to Tahoe many many years ago but I didn't see much of it at the time. Can't wait to get out and see more of your state.

Also....mentioned in my my thread but I have lots of questions about the Rubicon Trail and would love to hear from those of you who are regulars in the area. Maybe even who I should connect with to do it (paid or otherwise).

Thanks!
