Deer Valley NB trip
« on: September 03, 2019, 11:09:00 AM »

For those that can't make the Rubicon trip or anyone ready for more, see you around 10:30 Sept 15  (weather permitting). This is a Sunday trail ride so you can camp for free the night before. We will be starting at the Hermit Valley CG / trail-head on HWY 4 and exiting to HWY 88. Your vehicle will need pretty good ground clearance and maybe one locker. There are some rock gardens to negotiate and the trail is a little more difficult than in years past. Leave a reply if you intend to join us so we know what headcount to expect.  :thumbsup:

341 and 431 are great roads for bikes. Be watchful of cars over the center line. Bikes have even had head on's up there. Have fun.

I'll be riding with 22 other bikes. And though I'm not sure what the exact route we're taking, it does not involve freeways. :2thumbsup:

No big deal. Just thought I'd let people know in case there was interest. Two Beers and I will be up there, we might have a couple more from over here.  :thumbsup:

If I have my jeep fixed by then, and I can convince my wife to let me go I might make it up with my boy.

It's funny, my group is heading home through Carson Pass on Sunday. Hwy 88 to MET. I'll probably pass by before you get off the trail though.

Glad to hear it. Looks like it will be just Two Beers (Mark) and me (Doug) with passengers. We will wait at the trailhead. Was that you that joined us last year?

Trip Report:
MapQuest said 1:45 from my house and was right on the money. We arrived at 9:45am and waited one hour for Andy. I left a note on the sign post with CB channel and ham frequency then we headed up the trail. Guess no-one made it because we would have been in range for quite a while. We took all the harder lines and had a great time. (left choice was usually the tougher way) We came up on a stock Tahoe coming in from Blue Lakes. Poor old guy was seriously high-centered. He was exhausted from stacking rocks. I squeezed past and winched him through this rough spot. Great trail ride.  :thumbsup:

Wow. I totally got the wrong weekend. I don't know why I had set in my head for the 28th. I feel really dumb now. And haven't had my phone all week.

Pics?  :2thumbsup:

Obviously you can't use photofuckit anymore, by the looks of your avatar. You can upload that picture as an attachment for your avatar. If you want me to do it, send me the pic in an email. :high5:

Did you guys get rained on? Our crew ran the Rubicon the 16th-18th. Rained on us hard as soon as we left the kiosk, then turned to snow. It was quite interesting climbing up granite bowl as rivers of water were flowing down.

Nope, 15th was nice.
