As today, the Jeep is in the shop and is up in the air when I will get it back.  So feel free to bump me if someone wants to be added to attendee list.

There's a slight chance of rain Friday afternoon/evening!  Wouldn't that be awesome if we got just enough rain to get the ground nice and wet to keep the dust down for the run, here's to hoping we get a hint of rain! 😎

My twins are down to their last few boxes of Girl Scout cookies and will be at this run.  They're trying to get these last few boxes sold to meet their goal.  If anyone wants to help them reach their goal we can deliver this Sat., they accept cash or credit.  The following is a list of what they have left.

 

$5 per box

Thin Mints = 5 boxes

Samoas = 3 boxes

Tagalong = 1 box

Do-si-do = 1 box

Lemon-ups = 1 box

 

$6 per box

Smore's = 1 box

TRAIL RIDE UPDATE!

****updating main post as well****

 

Hi everyone, while the ride is still going to happen, I'm needing to make some pretty big changes to the route for a few reasons:

 

  1. Safety - There is still a good amount of snow and ice reported along our route north of Hozoni Ranch. Much of that section of the trail are narrow shelf roads with quite a bit of risk in the snow.
  2. Time - in talking with a few folks familiar with the area, we're probably looking at a 10-12 hour day on the original route, getting us into Crown King around dark + another 2-3 hours for some to get home from CK.

 

Apologies for any confusion or inconvenience.

 

This spring I'd like to turn the route into a 2 day overnight/overland trip to give us more time to enjoy the trails without the need to push through for time's sake.

 

 

The New Updated Route!

The first half of the new route will remain the same taking us up the Morgan City Wash and past Copperopolis and Bradshaw's Grave. 

 

For the 2nd half, rather than going north, we'll connect to the beautiful Buckhorn Springs Trail which will take us by Buckhorn Springs which is normally flowing with water. From there, we'll connect to Castle Hot Springs and end up back at Lake Pleasant.

 

The overall distance of the run is still the same (64mi) but we'll be on faster trails and make better time (and no ice!).

The difficulty rating is still MODERATE due to the area around Copperopolis/Grave (north-end of the below trial map).

 

It should still be a great day of exploring!

 

Meeting time and place are unchanged.

 

 

Here's a map/GPX of the new route (in purple below).
