Best in the biz. Wont buy a tire else where. Nd i think we should schd this for a better tine for every one. Lots of intrest bad timing.

bullcrew 10-24-2012 01:47 AM

I was planning on calico so I could play around gatekeeper but doesn't look like,e its going to pan out for a camping trip so I might be down for this..big bear is OK but I'd rather hit jv.....
I'll look and see how things transpire tomorrow/Thur.

DaK 10-24-2012 06:36 AM

Ahhh Bull Frog, the trail that started it all for us. Good trail shame it is so far away, like all trails from here. Won't be joining ya on this run but, will be looking forward to the footage. Since you are there ya might as do Cake Walk. Two trails cross one another several times. THere is a nice crack to cross in Cake Walk with a good down hill too. Got the pucker going on those two.

Have any of you ran this trail before?

Has anyone got a GPS point - point on running bullfrog? .gpx

If we can get us four on this trail it could be really fun and we can have a pretty good pace.

pluke the 2 10-24-2012 10:39 AM

Yomondo, do you have a track for this trail? (Bull frog) If you do, i'd really appreciate it. then i'd have to fig out how to put it in.

pluke the 2 10-24-2012 11:51 AM

big thanks!

pluke the 2 10-24-2012 04:29 PM

So it looks like we may have enough interest to run this trail together.

I will create a formal plan tonight, re-modify the OP, and have a list of people who are going and the usual maybe's.

The Plan: Run Bullfrog and Extra Credit.

Just wondering if anyone would be interested in running this? If no interest, we may end up running with the guys going up to Big Bear area.

Our last time out, and I would be capturing footage.

I can take care of that for you. For future reference, it's much easier to get that done if you report the first post and ask to have it done in the reason box, instead of hoping a staff member will accidentally stumble upon it, which is what I did. ;)
