    So, ITSAGS found us a pretty sweet place

    Lundy Canyon Campground located here 38.034436 -119.206467
    This seasonal campground is set among beautiful Aspen Groves lining the banks of Mill Creek. An on-site campground host provides fee collection services for the 36 first-come, first-served camping spaces that include restrooms, picnic benches, fire-rings, and bear boxes.

    There is no water. Pit toilets. $12/night

    It looks PERRRFECT. But after just calling, they are saying that due to the Federal government shutdown they have been taking a LOT of calls.

    HOWEVER, As this is drastically different than a Plumas county event, still has too many unknowns about the crowd, I am changing the location back to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. I don't want to, but I think that is best for everyone.

    I will update the OP.

    That is painful.

    I just don't want to risk going to a place that could potentially be busy as fuck because all the federal locations are shut down.

    But I am SURE that Lundy Lake canyon would be amazing.

    Either way weather is predicting Lundy lake weather in the low 20's at night.:vardy

    Nice pics, those sky pics are outstanding. It dosn't really matter where we camp, the beer and cookies will taste the same.

    Was planning on bring the wee angry one with me and yup that means driving, but the cookies and lets get ripped theme I am feeling means we are a "maybe" at this point. We shall see, he got a good enough lingo lesson at the roadhouse not sure 2 events of this nature are good for his young mind :norton

    This is 95% unorganized. It is a modified 'Farm Rules' event. No shirts, no pins, no food, no swag, no to do this, but but this was a shitty year for me,

    I'm ok with not wearing a shirt, but Fuck! No strippers? Ha ha

    I know it's do your own thing no hand holding: not into doing it alone can go anytime/anywhere for that.

    Whatever ride you want. Some people will be riding street, some on dirt. Usually not many or any with teeny bikes for single track. I'll be riding a bunch of dirt, Hells Half acre, maybe head over to Bodie Whatevs.
