yomondo Okay, as long as everybody can handle the cold nights in Big Bear. I suppose we should start a new thread, so this Mojave Road thread can be put to rest. Again. Well not for long. I'm hoping to do Mojave Road in April, so I'll probably be posting up about it again sometime soon.

2DEUCE2 I just finished fixing my Jeep so I am good to go. I had to replace damaged sections of my rear hard brake lines.

I'm off Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I have to go to work on Monday... but not until 8PM. I am up for either Big Bear or Calico... I am probably leaning more towards Big Bear though with the Calico trip coming up in March.

I'll drink, just not as much as last time and definitely not too much the night before we hit the trails. I have yet to master picking my line up the hill while vomiting.
01-08-2012 05:04 PM
yomondo So are we set on Big Bear? Or do y'all want to join I H8RDS and 4XSMURF at Calico?

Oh I forgot to mention, when I called the Discovery Center, they said that the shooting range at Holcomb Valley is closed due to fire risk.

Sounds good. We have options then.

yomondo I just called the Discovery Center. Holcomb Valley Campground is open. Roads leading up to the campground are open, but may be muddy or icy in spots. Dishpan Springs and Holcomb Creek trails are open, but they warned that Holcomb Creek trail is icy in spots and they've had to recover a couple of vehicles recently.
01-08-2012 10:55 AM
cashcow1608 I could go for a Big Bear trip. I have never wheeled up there and I agree on toning down the honey a bit. I was in bad shape the day after the Miller trip.

awsome, party time! what happened to your jeep?

My passenger seat will probably be vacant as usual.



I'd like to give a call to the ranger to verify that Holcomb Valley Campground is open. I know that Hanna Flat is closed. If Holcomb Valley Campground is open, I think we should do it. We can camp two nights....meet at camp Friday evening, then run Dishpan and Holcomb on Saturday.

I don't have a paper map of the area, but I looked over the Charles Wells book, and I've got GPS tracks and waypoints loaded to my two GPS devices. I think we can do this.

Anyone else interested?
LOL wow brandon you better come ready to drink haha!

these sites show holcomb valley as a year round campsite. i will call this week to make sure.

Holcomb Valley Campground | California | Public Lands Information Center | Recreation Search
San Bernardino National Forest - Holcomb Valley Campground

i remember asking the camp host last time i was there, but this time of year there won't be a host.

yomondo Oh and y'all know it's gonna be 16 degrees at night, right? That's a bit colder than it was at Miller Jeep Trail last month when it snowed on us.

turdhurdler Big Bear is beautiful right now. We just ran Gold Mtn, a little snow, a few puddles and oddly, no one else on the trail. The weather was great with temps in the mid to upper 60s today. I should have some video up in a bit and will post up that. Others took some pics that should be good also.

Jerry Bransford There's a big event at Superstition Mountain this coming weekend, you guys may want to check into it too. Big raffle Saturday night as well. 14th Annual Superstition Mountain Run | San Diego 4 Wheelers. I'll be there, there are some pretty awesome trails there around on the backside of Superstition Mountain.

BeantownR6 so what do you think? want to set something up in bigbear? pretty sure holcomb camp is open year round up there...

yomondo Someone posted up over at MJR about running Dishpan and Holcomb on Saturday 1/14. Here are some of the comments regarding trail condition:

I don't know what the trail conditions are like in Big Bear. If there's snow, John Bull and Dishpan might be a problem. I wonder if there's much snow at the campgrounds or hiking trails. I'm dying to go snow camping and snowshoeing. I didn't get to do that last winter, so I'm overdue.

I was thinking either Calico or Last Chance Canyon/Goler Gulch. But you just did LCC/NG recently. Then again, I just did Calico not long ago too.

Any other ideas?

Anyone else looking for something to do next weekend?
