The most common meeting point is in Angels Camp, as you guys will be driving to AC from Jackson.
In any case, I plan to fix my brake line tonight if I have time to do it today than yes I am a game and call you on Saturday morning, however, if I won't have time to do brake line today I'll be doing it on Saturday :-().
it looks like im going up on friday morn, 12 hours on the jeep paid off. im getting feedback from some of the guys that the campsites might be full so were going to have to find something tomorro morning that will fit everyone comming on sat. look for the norcall jeepers sticker on some of the jeeps.i will put up a sign at the lodgepole camosite entrance saying where we are

Is there a more detailed info on the meeting time and place and the "schedule" of events? Do you plan to run both trails on the same day and than camp out for the night?

The Trails


-Deer Valley
-Slick Rock

The plan:
-Meet at the Safeway in Jackson at 8:00am, Saturday July 30th,Safeway
-Leave Safeway by 8:30,(Come with a full tank of gas and full stomach, we want to get on the trail as soon as possible.)
-Head up Highway 4 to the campsite(TBA) so people can unload
-Wheel Slick Rock
-Campfire Saturday Night (Please bring cash for camping. I would bring $20 in change (i.e. 2 tens or 1 ten and 2 fives))
-Wake up early and wheel Deer Valley to Highway 88 (If water is too high we will wheel back to Highway 4 and leave from there)


The Requirements:
-Visibly charged fire extinguisher (BC or ABC)
-First aid kit
-Adequate spare tire, jack and lug wrench
-Safety belts for driver and any current passenger
-Adequate attachment points in the front and rear of the vehicle:
-Acceptable forms of attachment points: (All Items must be mounted in a manner to provide adequate strength and integrity)
-Tow hooks of OEM or greater integrity,D-Rings,Shackle/Clevis
-20ft 10,000lb snatch strap without any metal hooks
-Secured battery (no bungee cords)
-31"+ tires
-Spare parts, drive shaft u-joints, spares for whatever non-standard parts installed on your rigs
-Mini skids or reinforced LCA brackets, a t-case skid, and a gas tank skid HIGHLY recommended. These are things that are REALLY HARD to fix on the trail!!
-Most importantly! A GOOD ATTITUDE (This trip will not be about who has a bigger ****. If it turns into that, I will have no problem with not asking you to come back on any other future trips. Its all about having fun, learning, and getting drunk around the campfire telling big lies about the days events.)

-If you are needing help to get your Jeep ready for the trip, please let SCCAFIRE know. He is willing to set up a wrenching day before the trip.


This is a great trip for some of the guys and gals that may be fairly new to 4 wheeling who can get there feet wet and be with others to help them out when needed. This will hopefully be a confidence building weekend for those who are new to the sport. Also,to be able to learn what you and your rig can and cannot do.

Not odd at all. San Jose has an Offroad group here:

We are meeting on Sunday at Dave and Buster's at noon to plan outings.

Sunday, May 22, 2011 at 12:00 PM

We also get together monthly at Hollister (awesome trails).

Looking to get this sucker running healthy again with minimal $$

It is the road to the right where the little winery is on 92. Just keep going straight past the winery and little ranch.

Hey, I am in HMB too :-), but I am new to this area. I think I saw one trail off of 92, its not long and maybe private road, but I tried it once about a month ago. Other than that I don't know much around here.

ive been on more snow trips than i can count and every time the snow is a little different depending on water content and air temp. there is no way a jeep like mine could make it to ice house from uncle toms last weekend. it took 2 toyota trucks with 37" tires duel t cases in the lowest gear with one truck pushing the other to keep going . once you get the trail blazed by someone then its possible ,but no way a jeep like mine could do it. if i let my tires get of the packed tracks it would only go a few feet. it is like driving on 2 wood planks and have to pay attention. without well equiped rigs to leed the way with a sensable driver . if the first guy is a hot dog then your trip will be short. no spinning of tires and making deep ruts. there where some jeeps that where in there the day b4 us and there were idiots. they went off the road and tore up the landscape and make it bad for the rest of us. they made it in for a while but with there driving skills they had to turn around once it got to deep and full throttle wasnt working.

i have 2 lockers, 35" tires and aired down to 7 lbs.
