    May 15th to 17th Big Bear Ride

    Location: Holcomb Valley Campground (primitive camp) off 4N16 located north side of Big Bear Lake.


    Big bike and small bikes. Advanced and nOObs are all welcome. The rides will be split according to skill level and interest (and drinking habit..:lol3 )

    Sign up soon cuz we have limited camping space! It's a first come, first served basis.

    :cry sito, you did a lot last year and this year will be no different. come on? besides....we will have catered taco dinner (luv2race).

    if we let you get off the hook, you promise that you'll do the WMRS carne asada dinner meal again. of course scorpion and dsm8 (jet li) will be there to help you too.

    any volunteer....?

    we need to start making reservations at serrano camp.

    Mid July...Possibly in. I'll check the schedule. This time however, I'll bring the rig & XR

    There is a lot of other places to camp, but they are much more remote with no shower or shitters

    i just checked serrano campground reservation....booked for the month of may. where else can we camp?

    we can plan ahead of time, let's say do it on

    JULY 17, 18, and 19, 2009

    if we can get a consensus, let's do it and start booking asap.

    right now, for those dates...the most desirable campsites (in the shade/trees) are available # 129, 125/126, 124, 122, and 119. maximum of 8 campers each campsite.

    the shower and bathrooms are clean and modern.

    once we get at least 12 riders, let's start making reservation.

    H8, all camp sites you mentioned for those dates are reserved according to www.recreation.gov/camping/
    Even that crappy #120 I was in last year with no shade is booked. Some are open at 2PM on Saturday the 18th but thats not good.

    September seems to be wide open for reservations.

    What about room for all the vans, pickups, and trailers?

    July is bad for me. Usually take the family for the annual "Summer Vacation", Chevy Chase style :).

    Is there somewhere else we can camp in May that's tolerable? I don't know the area to well so I'll keep my mouth shut.
