    Sun is good for me. I could introduce nOObs that are ready to some of the easier trails.

    I'm in, though I'll be late... should be there by midday. (8:45am hockey game at Padasena) I'll load up the night before.
    Should have 3 peeps. Plus maybe 2 more if my neighbor wants to come along with his son. (WR450 and KX140)

    think you could camp in rowher. adventure pass is needed.

    farther north, los padres nf has a lot of campgrounds.

    anf has monte cristo, horse flat, buckhorn, etc.

    Tim, the planets seem misaligned. Bill could not make it.

    I on the other hand got the flu last night. Sorry, I'm out too.

    Don't let us make you change your mind. There are experienced riders showing up. They can help out.

    Have fun everyone. In-n-Out burgers still on me.
