Helomech I just picked up a tj on Monday. I live up in running springs. Friday I have to do smog check and DMV but hope to be done by 1 or so. Might just hit local dirt to see what falls off before I go to the rocks.

Just keep up with the weather conditions.

minisaba I wouldn't do cleghorn alone and maybe not with only two jeeps because hills and mud can result in unexpected mishaps.

I remember seeing a really tough line towards the end that I ended up bypassing.

If you don't mind someone tagging along I might be able to make it.
I don't mind at all. I was planning Friday at 10ish.

Do you have a lot of experience? Cleghorn isn't very hard, but has some hard parts if you do all the off shoots.
