Motino Wash Run! July 6th...
 
I got a chance to run this trail last year posted up by Baja1AB (Joe I believe) and had a great time.

Nice wash run at an elevation that keeps it nice :)

General area is off of Hwy 38 at 2n01 or up the backside from 247 via rattlesnake canyon. The Link from last years thread with pictures as well as a video from Dan (DTM) are below...

More details as we get closer....:popcorn:

Man, what a great run that was, Bill. I might be up for this one. I love me some Mottino Wash! My little guy is getting his tonsils and adenoids out the week prior so it'll depend on how he's doing by then.

Rich and I hit this a few weeks after the big run we all did. He and a buddy of ours were camped in Cougar Buttes so I ran up and met them and we came in from the desert through the canyons/washes and hit Mottino where we ran into the whole Currie family in their side-by-sides. Then we circled back and hit Bull Frog and Cake Walk at the Buttes. It was a LONG day but with only 3 Jeeps we covered a lot of ground. A very good day of wheelin I must say.

I won't know until just before so don't put me down as in or maybe. I'll just jump in in the end if I can make it.

Ran Motino last saturday night, some of the ranchers back there are pretty salty, they are blaming jeepers on some of their dead cattle. One old guy stopped me and complained for about ten minutes. I know you guys are not going to do that, just putting it out there. Went to pappy and Harriets afterward was a good run!

I would like to do this run but I will be in Lake Tahoe from 6/30 to 7/7 celibrating my 40th birthday on the 3rd.

I know one of the ranchers pretty well. He needed some material to build his cattle pen and we were able to supply it for him. Once he knows you hes not such a grump.

Great, so if I take a few 2x4s we will be good to go :)....Its not my intention to piss off the locals, I just don't recall seeing any places back there, guess I wasn't paying attention...

Hehe he actually likes the old wood powerline poles. Are you familiar with the house just before the start of rattlesnake cyn off of 247? Thats who Im referring to. He always comes out and talks to people who are going through the canyon.

No I haven't been up from that direction, I came down from Hwy 38 so that would explain why I didn't see him....

If this was on Sunday I could make it but I am starting my new job this weekish and won't have the leave built up enough yet. Hope you guys have fun and hopefully we get on a trail together real soon!

Sounds good Doug, tell your dad to come up and show off his new jeep...

The last time I was in the canyon on the way to Mottino we came across some HUGE longhorns and an even bigger bull. I dared my passenger to get out and tickle him on the chin. Needless I say he didn't take me up on it, lol. :rofl:

Big Vic 06-08-2013 04:00 PM

I'm in for sure.

Hey Bill...are you planning on running this trail from the desert to the mounts?... which rout are you planning on using to get to the trail head?
I'm up for running it in both directions...

I'm open to any suggestions Steve, you and Joe know the trail better than I do and running it both way sounds pretty cool! I will be coming down from 38, I'm staying at 7 Oaks that weekend.

OK...if it's a small group we could do both directions no problem... It only take about 10 min to get from the exit of Matino back down Rattlesnake canyon to the entrance to Matino...or vise versa....

XJ_Phil 06-09-2013 12:10 PM

Got room for a beat up old XJ to tag along? I put some (almost) new skins on, so flats might not be an issue this time around....LOL

HyperBrad 06-09-2013 01:08 PM

Hi everyone, I'm gonna keep my eye on this run for sure, if the wife doesn't plan anything for us that weekend I or where in.. Thank you for the post.

XJ_Phil 06-09-2013 02:19 PM

Steve (WOKNROX) + are you going to be able to make this run? If so, maybe we can run up together from our side of the hill at whatever time that morning. P.A.

XJ_Phil 06-09-2013 02:22 PM

By the way Steve, what happened to the picture of your Jeep? It looks like some sort of Minecraft toy.....
