Go WEST on the 38 to Polique Canyon Road. Turn RIGHT.

Follow the dirt road to the "T" in the road (Holcomb Valley Road E), turn RIGHT.

Follow the road for a bit and turn RIGHT on 3n16 (Holcomb Valley Road)

Turn at your first LEFT (3n43)

Follow the road around, staying on the right (you will be following the big field on the right of you).

Keep going till you see us!

We will be having the drivers meeting at 8:30 SHARP!

RUNS

Easy: We will be following the 3n16, stopping at the observation tower, and other spots. 2WD friendly (this run will be deleted if there aren't enough trucks. I will talk to you at the meeting!)

Hard: Run #1-John Bull to Holcomb

Is there any official info on this run yet? Like how many people, meeting places, times, etc?

Would there be any fun trails for me to run? I'm just getting into offroading and my 87 4Runner is stock save for manual hubs and rear diff armor.

I'd love to go to get to know everyone but I want to make sure there is a run that I can do. Thanks in advance!

Darwalk
08-07-2007, 12:47 AM
We will have the official stuff up in a few days. There will be a run that you can go on up there with your vehicle, don't worry.

As for the people, I don't think that we will have the same ammount of people as last year due to people being skeeered of last year, and gas prices. We are also only having it 1 official day instead of 3 like last year.

Come on up!

I'll be up there from the 24th through the 26th. We'll be with our Toy120 group. But, look for us, you know my034runner, and you can't miss my TTORA stickers!:D

We'll be doing the Bull, and Holcomb, and maybe White Mountain on Sunday on the way home. Give me a call if you end up on the Mountain.

does anyone have GPS coordinates of the campground? I am not familiar with the area.

Also, the only "protection" that my truck has is rear diff armor. I'm guessing with stock IFS setup I should stick to the 2WD trail?

This is the link I have with the coords posted on the event page:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=N34+18.366+W116+53.373&spn=0.016569,0.029232&t=h&hl=en

However, I think those coords are a little off (about 500ft). These should be closer:
N34 18.285 W116 53.240

The directions Darrin posted will get you right to the site.

You can do Gold Mtn for sure, and maybe White Mtn if you have a locker or at least some good tires.

I won't have my truck ready for this run. I would like to go and maybe learn a few things as a passenger in someone elses rig (preferably 4x4 - medium run)

I'd like to learn how to pick a line, pick up some techniques on spotting, etc.

Ideally, I could meet up with someone between San Diego and Big Bear early Saturday morning (I have my one day of Jury Duty service this Friday). I would be happy to share gas costs with whomever I can ride along with.

Barring that, I can drive my Honda up to Big Bear in time for the drivers meeting....

If anyone has an extra seat, wants to meet a pretty decent and cool Toyota owner, post up or PM me :D

As I stated on the Nat board....I may have an extra seat if my wife does not go and I will be on the hard run. If she does not go we could meet at the same Starbucks we met at for Borrego last year.

How is it not going to be fun and undoable for you? Your rig can defenetly do every trail in big bear without a problem... come out and have fun with us damnit! Kristi will be there so bring your girl!

Come up the night before and you will not have to get up early.

It takes maybe 2.5 hours from north county to get there. I've done it as fast as 1.5 hours... but then again... um... I'll keep quiet. Hell google maps says 2 hours 9 minutes to big bear lake from Escondido. You should be able to make it to camp well with in 3 hours and that's airing down at Polique Canyon Road taking a pee break and then crusing down the road.

Agreed! No excuses for you... you must use 2wd the whole trip, especially with the new crawler. :) We can have a crawler race past camp.... got your pillow ready. :rolleyes:

So some of you are going up Friday night and camping out at Holcomb Valley Campground? I might join you guys. I rather get up there on Friday then waking up at 5:30am to prep on Saturday.

Yup, a few people will be up there. Just make sure you bring a lantern for the makeshift fire since we can't have one.....we are also doing a run on friday night if you want to go.

Darrin, do you think the campground will be full? I don't think they take reservations.

THe campground should be fine. We get it every year, so I ain't worried...

so how bad is the medium run??? i have 4x4 and i want to use it but i have no protection yet and i don't want body damage.
Most of the hard lines where you would need sliders have easier bypasses.

We dont stay at the official campground in Holcomb Valley, We disperse camp in an area just off a side trail behind the campground.

Currently the fire restrictions still allow dispersed camping, so we should be cool. If they do change the restrictions, then we will have to camp at a Yellow Post site or in one of the various campgrounds.

Could be fun this weekend with possible thunderstorms. Temperature would be nice though-mid to high 70s.

Holy crap you sound like a woman! Get over whatever you are stuck on and come out! You can do most of the stuff out there with what you have. And besides, Big Bear isn't the desert, so, yeah. Trails with rocks....in the mountains.....where it is 20-30 degrees cooler than here......NICE. Come out you sissy :D
Yer MOM sounds like a woman ...
I'm not a Marine anymore ...I don't get up before 6 unless I'm getting paid. It's not that I don't think my truck can make it. I know it can. I'm just not one for hangin' out with solid axle snobs that constantly ask me when I'm gonna do the same to my truck (when I win the fuckin' lottery ya bitches!!)

Besides, didn't someone say some guys from Pirate and Yotatech were comin'? That means two things; A crew full of dickheads and e-thugs, and an on trail church service all in the same day.

You guys have fun with that............

What solid axle snobs?? Besides Chris and the beater, and Wyatt, and the 05 that is too much compensation for his small pecker, I can't think of anyone else?? As far as the pirate and YT guys, they won't be with us, so just us lonely ttora few....

Well I guess I ain't talkin you into it, so see you on the next run maybe :)

Maybe I'm just afraid I'll be outclassed by you guys.

Nah, I always have stuff to do. Honest to Elvis truth. Every single time some run gets planned I start planning on going and shit happens that I can't get around. This time? Betsy's damned Ranger that my dumbass bought her is playin' "check engine" so I have to get up early saturday and head to the dealer.

...and don't try to hide it dammit. You're going snob on us soon enough. So soon enough I guess we'll be seeing you on here talking about how your rig is constantly broken and you can only make it to about 3 runs a year ...which is 3 more than me but that's not the point.

....the point is ...I drink too much beer and have no job so I have WAYYYYYYYYYY too much time on my hands to come up with witty posts that raise my abysmal post count! Yes!

TIME CHANGE!!!!!!!

We have a bunch of people coming up on Sat morning, and I think that 8:30 might have been to early. So.....9:00. Be there.

Also, if there aren't enough people for the easy run, that will also be cancelled! We will get you into another truck to ride along, or you just might be suprised that your junk can wheel a medium! We will see at the morning meeting. Please don't let this change your plans to come out! You will have a good time regardless!!

This was a great event... I came with the intention of running the easy trail, and was talked into the Moderate after Easy was cancelled :)

Thanks to everyone who helped me out with advice and encouragement! With your help we got my stock 4Runner with street treads through White Mountain without damage and only one tug!

Can't wait for the next event!
