It's better than the one I had, and why do you say not that one again Tyler?

It's a very nice rig, I'd buy it. Solid foundation for a wheeler

If its the one I'm thinking of, there was major drama when he tried to sell it previously.

Don't think he has tried selling it before, that might have been with me and Rob, but that was a big misunderstanding

Strawberry and deer valley may be out of the picture. DOJ ruling today and rumors are that it may be closed for one year.

Antis did the whole process under the radar

If that's the case, maybe we can run eagle lakes and signal peak. Slightly out of the way but the view at signal is great

For more info on the closures:

Signal Peak and Eagle Lakes doesn't appear to be too far away from the Rubicon. Definitely keep that as a cool down option.

It would prolly be a good two and a half hour drive between the two trails...The Rubicon is up highway 50 and Eagle Lakes is up 80.

And oh yeah, those closures are pretty much final...

We would be running these trails after the con, which would dump us out on the 89.

All this trail closure is some fucking bull shit! What's this they are saying about the "wetlands" on the con?

Good call, completely forgot you would be on the Tahoe side.

And all the "wetland" bullshit sounds to me like they are lookin' for a reason to close down the 'con.

Yep. My rig is not street friendly anymore. It does have current tags and ins if I have to drive it.

You'd have to drive it on the hwy at some point and time, unless you feel like running the trail back solo

If Stampede is going on again at the same time, we might be able to swing that.

It wont be a problem. I can cruise the hwy at 65. I used to do it before I had the trailer.

Aside from dealing with Ranger Dickhead I had a blast at Pismo, it's just too damn far to make it worth the trip by itself. I'd definitely head down there again if anyone else is interested.

The snow is melting off much faster and earlier this year than last. On one hand we won't have to worry about water levels, on the other it will be dusty...Any of you NorCal guys know if they will restrict camp fires due to the lack of precipitation this year?

More info on the trail conditions HERE

Side note. "The large historical Juniper on the high side of Little Sluice fell ".


More on that HERE

It's too early to say about fire restrictions. I think we may okay from all the late April rain we were getting up here.
