    IMO Grumpy's down the road didn't work out too well last time. If felt like we were eating in rotating shifts. No togetherness, if you know what I mean. I'm up for a pot luck. Or, if someone wants to bbq carne/pollo asada for tacos? We can all chip in and make it worth your while - considering there's sufficient interest. :ear

    Keeping this on the radar, but 15th is my wedding anniversary (19 yrs :eek1) so not sure if I can swing a hall pass for the following weekend.

    If I can make it, will be in for a couple easy rides on the scenic roads / trails, and maybe a short hike or two.

    As we all know sometimes we can't have campfires up there due to fire restrictions. I just finished researching restrictions for this year and found out Troy Overflow is considered a "developed campground". It is listed on Exhibit C (page 2 of 2).

    EVERYONE who is coming needs to print, complete, and sign a campfire permit. This allows you to have a gas lantern and stove at your particular tent site. So, in short, anyone who plans on using a lantern, stove, or BBQ needs one or risk a $5,000 fine and/or up to (6) months imprisonment. Click link below to get one. There is a quick 5-minute video to watch, and a 4-question quiz. Please get one. You don't want to be "that guy".

    Additionally, in years past a ranger will stop by in the morning to chat with us and probe ALL bikes for USFS approved spark arrestors. It would suck if he asked to see your campfire permit as well.

    Campfire Restrictions In Effect
    Date(s): May 8, 2014
    The Sequoia National Forest, Tule River Reservation, and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) within the Central California District (CND) recently announced an Interagency Declaration to impose fire restrictions for all Federal and State protected lands within Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties effective Wednesday May 21, 2014.
    In the Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument campfires and barbecues are only allowed in developed campgrounds or areas designated as exempt from fire restrictions.
    Visitors are allowed to have a portable gas stove or lantern (with a flame on/off switch) outside developed or designated areas with a valid California campfire permit. A campfire permit can be obtained, free of charge, at any Forest Service, CALFIRE, or Bureau of Land Management office.
