Santa Clarita easy run 29 Dec
 
Ladies and gentleman, I wanted to put together an easy fun run between the holidays to just get out and flex. This is a great run if you have a new rig and you wanna break it in or if you're just sick of drinking egg nog...

The forest service labels some of the trail black diamond but its nothing a stock rig can't make it through. There are some offshoots that are a little challenging for those that want to venture.

We will meet at the Drinkwater flats staging area. We'll take drinkwater over to bouquet canyon. That's where we will catch another trail up and over to Rowher flats. After the run I was thinking we could stop by Game Day Sports bar for drinks or a late lunch.


Location: Drinkwater Flats (34.526686,-118.531345)
Time: 1000
CB Channel: 10

Wow, sounds like a fun time. I have family visiting during that time, so I'll probably be unavailable for this run, but if I can talk a couple of them into going on an easy run, I'll join you if you don't mind.

crittert 12-18-2012 03:46 PM

The more the merrier Yomondo! It's definitely a family friendly run. Maybe not afterwards at Game Day lol :whistling:

MrStuky 12-19-2012 01:32 AM

I just mapquested this locations, it's only 2.5 hours from us. Do you think there will be any snow?

I told my husband I wanted to take a family day trip somewhere on the 29th to go offroad, hopefully find some snow for my grandson. Even if there isn't any, it would still be a nice day off.

Its in Santa Clarita. If you copy the GPS location I put in the first post and google it, it will show up in google maps and you can get directions that way. The staging area is about 4 miles down on the left hand side of San Francisquito Road in Santa Clarita.

CoryGson 12-19-2012 01:15 PM

I want to pop my jeeps cherry over the holidays... i would like to try to make that run with you guys

Snow is pretty doubtful, its about 2500 feet, but a fun run without snow.

Depending on my kids I plan on being there.

Really hope you can make it. I don't know about the snow though, but it'll be fun either way :punk:

hey. I'm driving down from the Bay Area for Xmas and New Years. I'll be staying in Lake Forest for some of that time. I think it's about 90minutes from Santa Clarita. Gotta check with the family to make sure there aren't any plans that day. If my days free, I'm in. I'll know in a day or so.
here's my jeep because we all love pictures:

Hope to see you there. Great pics too. We might see a little mud on this run too :dance:

crittert 12-23-2012 04:42 PM

Ran the trail today to make sure everything was still open and the trail was AWESOME. Beautiful scenery right now and a great mix of challenges for the beginner to intermediate wheeler..If you have street tires on your jeep expect to get strapped cause it was pretty slippery in sections due to the recent rains.

The weather forecast has rain mid week with sunny skies on Saturday for the run..:thumb:

I can't wait. You guys are gonna love this trail!

Lab Lover 12-23-2012 06:30 PM

Unfortunately we have to back out of this. We've got employee issues that just came about and inventory will be going on that day. If something changes over this week I will notify you. I really wanted to go and for once it was somewhere not 4 hours away.

Thank you, I hope to see pictures of everyone having a good time.

Merry Christmas,
Lisa

crittert 12-23-2012 06:39 PM

No problem Lisa. Life happens when you're making other plans right?! I'll be doing another run in a couple of weeks. Hopefully you can make that one.

Merry Xmas

Antefx 12-23-2012 08:59 PM

You'll be just fine. :punk:

JPetru82 12-24-2012 09:13 AM

Aaron, I'm in for sure, you can take the maybe next to my name away if you want. So, it's 10am at the GPS position posted on the first page?

Yes 10am at the GPS spot. That's where we will air down and disconnect. So if you're running a bit late you'll have a little time..

Glad you decided to go :thumb:

JPetru82 12-24-2012 09:08 PM

is this going to be AB all day thing? Should I plan on packing a lunch, or just some snacks will do?

crittert 12-24-2012 10:41 PM

Its going to be around 4-5 hours depending on how many times we stop for pics etc. I would pack something to eat. Some of us might go get food afterwards as well..
