    The Aspen fire has been declared contained and now just mop up is happening with all the firefiighters more than likely headed to Los Angeles to help in Banning..

    Care to share your route? We've been doing most of our practicing in some of the areas around there, wonder what roads we've been on and what we have been missing.

    Hey Mike I'll be up your way this weekend. If your home I'll stop by for a bit and shoot the shit.

    Sheri (my GF) and I are doing a week in the Sierras for a last min. vacation before she starts new job.

    PM me your phone # and I'll call you.

    Trail Appreciation Day
    Whiskey Falls Area
    Help Needed

    The Stewards of the Sierra National Forest in Partnership with the Forest Service will be hosting a Trail Appreciation Day in the Whiskey Falls area on August 17, 2013. We will meet at Bullet Camp Staging Area a wide camp spot on the right side of Forest Road 8S09 which is about a ¼ of a mile past the intersection of the road to Whiskey Falls of off Peckinpah Rd above North Fork Ca. at 9:00 a.m. to unload and will head up to the project area to begin our trail day adventure from there.

    We will be working side by side with members of the forest service to install a new cutting edge type of stream crossing here in the Sierra National Forest to help improve water quality issues and address sedimentation into the stream. This work will enable the Stewards to help open more miles of trails to be put onto the Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) for your use here in the Sierra National Forest.

    So grab your friends and riding buddies and bring your ATV, Bike, or UTV, and help us start of our new 2012-2013 OHV Grant Cycle for the year. Please wear long pants and boots and bring your lunch. The Stewards will provide bottled water sodas and all of the tools and safety supplies you will need. Please RSVP to info@sotsnf.org so we know how many supplies to haul up the mountain. These are your public lands please take some time to invest back into them for all of the pleasure they provide you and your family and be ready to have some fun out on the trails. If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call at 831-801-1111-cell and we can talk.

    Yes it will be on the LC4's indeed.

    Right now I'm doing the WMRS loop we did (only in a cage) may even go up to WM.

    Adding a few side spots along the way heading to Devils Postpile now.
