I was planning to go to airport flats Friday night and camp. Then wheel Saturday with a Vacaville group of about 5 jeeps.  Although my bro texted me and said his Jeep didnít start the AM.  Lol If he does not go.. I ainít camping and can meet yíall Saturday .. Otherwise , swing by and get me at the camp and I will roll with yíall.

I am in for Bloomfield. Any thoughts on a date? Feb 6-15 I will be in the Bahamas, just say n


Didn't this happen last year also? :shaking:

There's a big storm coming starting tonight through Thursday. But we still don't know what the snow accumulation is like up there. If we get a good report, maybe we could shoot for the 26th or Feb. 2nd.

Sounds like Chris and Daniel will have a first hand accounting of the conditions!   I just want to break the cherry on my Jeep.  I am thinking maybe a foot this storm.. from what I have seen.

Well, my arthritic shoulders and hips are pretty accurate. :). Yeah, that is a bit more than it was a few days ago.

I have 3-4 rigs that are looking to go on Sat. they are just waiting to see what the storm does on Fri. If I have 8"-9" at my house in Nevada City we will probably do a more local run vs. WWS. I will post something on Friday. Also, this weekend might be the Winter Fun Fest up here. Although I (we) wouldn't be a part of their run it's always fun to go out and get in front of the slow moving train.

Well that kind of sucks. With the Winter fun fest on the weekend of the 24th, That would leave Super Bowl Sunday.
Tim? Jason? anyone else?

On the positive side, there probably won't be anyone else up there.

My bro and I will be at the meet Sat am.  We will likely stay at Airport Flats that night sampling various types of whiskey. I will be at the fun fest volunteering Sat.  If the niners are in the Super Bowl,  I am obligated to stay home and wear my lucky hat.

I'm working on guys right now. We would be coming from Grass Valley so we would just have to meet you at Airport Flat. Not going all the way to Fresh Pond.

Yes, WFF is next week. I work Sundays

Well I have confirmed 3 rigs possibly two more for tomorrow. We will be leaving Grass Valley around 7:30ish, collect one of the rigs in Georgetown and top off. We'll push to Airport Flat and hopefully meet up with you there. Guess that all depends on how long it takes everyone. Ultimately we are gonna try and get to WWS campground and have a BBQ.

Hopefully we'll all meet up.
