Anyone going to be up that way?

I'll be hanging with the wife & kids in Arnold.
The Sister in law, her 3 kids & her boyfriend will be there.

I was thinking of taking him out for his first wheelin trip.
(not sure if it will be Sat or Sun).

Coolio, I'll keep my eyes open.

I haven't decided if I'm going to hit SR or head up to Deer Valley trail.
I know there an Toyota FJ45 run and I know a bunch of the guys there...

All depends on how gun ho my passenger is & how long he wants to stay out...

I loved my one and only trip to Slickrock. :D But I won't be able to make it this weekend... :( Be sure to hit Round Valley too. On the right, Just as you turn off to Bear Valley Ski resort. It's only about 3 miles, all uphill and not difficult (but steep in places). Goes up to about 9500 feet. You can see forever. One way in and out... :D

Great Trip!

Met Tyler & his buddy with a Gold Scout from Livermore... We tried to swap in my spare front DS but it wouldn't clear... So they limped out back to Alpine.

Helped out a kid with a 70s F150 with on the drop in near Utica...
He spit a cap & toasted inner & outer DS shafts...

He got hung up again around the corner & we pulled him off a rock, then he blew his rear DS cap & yoke... So we pulled him off to the side to wait for help.
