    I am open for suggestions. I have ridden trimmer springs to big creek road several times. Always a fun ride. Thinking about heading out around 9 am?

    I think I have a good route thu the dez from Ridgecrest to Trona. From Trona, we can try the escape route over the mountain to tie into Coyote canyon/Golar, it will save time and add more dirt! There is gas in Trona this year so range is not an issue. Only four more daze...

    I took Big Creek to Saproot Saddle but ran into some mud along the way and with almost bald trailwing tires it didn't look like a good idea. So I turned around and headed back up Big Creek to try and loop in with the 168. Things were going great until I ran into this [​IMG][/url][/IMG]

    So... back to pine flat I went

    Perry,

    FYI, I PM'd Lost Rider to get the GPS track as a back-up since I didn't think you or JP have a GPS. Either way the directions sound easy enough.....:D. All the new toys have arrived and been installed. DVDaze here I come:clap
