Let’s try this weekend. Who is coming?
Same as before, this is more an exploration trip than simple drive. Wrong turns, downed trees, closed gates, etc. may force changes to the plan. I will be monitoring forest service information for any announcements that may impact the trip (for example, Dick's Creek, which comprised a significant section of last year's trip, has been closed). Any stops will be done as-needed and camp sites will be determined as available. I would call it overlanding, but we don't have any patches. :D

All participants should be self-sufficient for food, fuel, comfort, etc. The club will provide some food; details to come. We will need at least one chainsaw, so please post if you are bringing one.

This year the club is also asking for signup payments for planned club rides. Proceeds will go towards event needs such as propane, food, campground fees if applicable, etc, and all participants will receive an event sticker. Paypal info@upstatecruisers.com or PM if alternate means are needed to hold your spot. Non-refundable. Club Member; $10/vehicle, Non-club Member; $15/vehicle.




Thursday, 1/24: Optional camp for night. $6 per site, no water, vault toilette. Google Maps
Friday, 1/25: Meet/Depart Desoto Falls campground at 11am. Follow route, camp somewhere.
Saturday, 1/26: Follow route, camp somewhere.
Sunday, 1/27: Follow route, call it.

Fuel near departure point. Please fill before departure time if needed:
-South Google Maps


-North Google Maps There is another country store gas station on the way to it, but Gasbuddy does not have any fuel info for it.

My volunteer work day is canceled due to the shutdown and so we can make it!

Hump day update

Going grocery shopping tonight for Friday's dinner (probably some sort of tacos) and Saturday's breakfast (probably some sort of chicken veal) for 4. Anyone else joining the group, let me know asap.

The forest service site still hasn't been updated due to the government shutdown, so road conditions are even more an unknown. It's okay, we are in Land Cruisers, so long as gates aren't locked. General news about public lands has been filled with complaints of trash. We will pack out our own as usual, but plan to potentially haul out other's too.

Sorry to hear. Next time.

Still unsure of how my weekend will play out. I have plans Sunday at noon, so I'd most likely be heading home sat if I go.
No problem. Cruise with us then head back at your leisure.
