Summit Springs Run
 
This is copied from a fellow jeeper on JF who will be leading a run into Mendocino National Forest.

"I'll be putting on a Jeep run Feb. 16th in the Mendocino National forest.
Metting at the Cheveron station again at S.R. 29 & S.R. 20 in Upper Lake at 9:00 am. Departing at 9:30 am."

Anyone interested chime in and I'll be sure to put you on the list.

It looks like it. Lol

bobthetj03 02-02-2013 11:31 AM

Well, at least now I don't have to copy-n-paste any more! :D :wavey:

JPetru82 02-03-2013 10:38 PM

I think most people figured out it was easier to just use one forum. But, still a good idea to post on both just in case not everyone has a JF account.

Sonoma_Girl 02-05-2013 08:04 PM

So now people are on another forum? Lol

We would like to go

JPetru82 02-05-2013 08:59 PM

do you have a JeepForum.com account?

Sonoma_Girl 02-05-2013 09:04 PM

No lol why did everyone ditch this place

JPetru82 02-05-2013 09:52 PM

I don't know. I've had an account on here and there for a while now. I use both sites regularly. I'll tell them to add you to the list, and will post any updates here.

bobthetj03 02-05-2013 10:39 PM

Sorry, but there wasn't much interest over here, so I kinda gave up, but I'll try to keep up to date.

JPetru82 02-05-2013 10:59 PM

little update from lowranger today:

Made a pre-run today. There looks like there's going to be a little bit of everything on this run. Mud....a little snow....a couple creek crossings..... ruts that you have to cross and straddle. Not enough snow for tire chains. Looks like the stock guys shouldn't have any trouble.

List so far.....

Jimbob will post a few pictures of this pre-run soon.

Sonoma_Girl 02-12-2013 05:23 PM

Yay!! Just returning from KOH can't wait!!

JPetru82 02-12-2013 05:33 PM

turning out to be a pretty good group as of now.

Lowranger was wondering if everyone has either a CB or FRS radios. Post up what you got, and I'll relay the message to him.

bobthetj03 02-12-2013 08:26 PM

The pre-run went well. A mixture of forest service roads, trails with lot's of washouts(off camber stuff) and slop with a little snow in the mix, although I don't know how much snow will be left by this Saturday. Should be no problem for a stock jeep. Some of the trails may be a little tight for the JK's, but doable.
Took a break on the way down French Ridge to take a shot of Snow Mt...

Got a little tight thru this area. A lot of downed dead wood.

Found a nice spot to break for lunch at the base of Summit Springs...

We don't have radios can we borrow?

Sonoma_Girl 02-13-2013 01:09 PM

Which chèvron and where the directions are unclear. We can follow from Santa Rosa -

JPetru82 02-13-2013 02:09 PM

I have an extra FRS radio you can borrow. The chevron is on the corner of 29 and 20. Not sure about directions from SR, I just take 29 all the way up from Vallejo. Maybe Jim or Gene will see this and post up some directions.

EDIT: looking at the map app on my phone, it seems you just take 101N and them get on 20E.
