    they are coming out of Northern California. LA doesn't stock them - I am being told we should receive them Friday. Looking for a backup plan just in case (unlikely)

    No worries if they don't make it here. I don't think my stretched one will break while engaged & running slow and I would take it off before the high speed run back home.

    Looking forward to this trip, it will be a long day of wheeling but the scenery is grist as is the destination Saturday afternoon. Perfect weather for the weekend.

    See most of you Saturday

    Marta and I will be meeting the group down in Mammouth along the Copper Creek Rd on Saturday. If the trailer becomes an impediment to the trail run we will just bail out and head back out and around the other route to the campsite.

    thanks Saddletramp for laying it out! If anyone would like my cell, PM me

    Looks like niced sized group of 11 trucks for the Rug Road trail run. Bring your HAM radio - I will bring an extra handheld for anyone that doesn't have one. Saddletramp, do you have an extra you can also bring?

    Ill see the valley folks at the Gold Canyon Chevron - I will be there about 6:50am. The second meeting spot will be in Mammoth gassing up at the circle K around 8:40 then driving over to the trailhead to prepare to head out for an epic weekend!










    And for the love of God, Red Steve: #dontforgetthetortillas!! ;):hillbilly: (Ill bring the c-clips if they come in today)

    All of my meal planning for this run is based on the tortillas.

    (But I'll have my own as some backup... Sad, disappointing backup)

    @Saddletramp If Alvin is coming down tonight, I hope to meet you guys up there. What time are you planning on arriving in Mammoth? I am also doing to slide into your DM's for additional Q&A

    I have 30 Mission white corn soft tortillas and picked up two dozen fresh flour tortillas from our local panaderia.

    Bakery will be open tomorrow morning if anyone wants more or sweet rolls and whatnots. I think the restaurant will also be open.

    Looking forward to a night of camping.

    Graham and I will probably leave around 10am or so, that way he can catch a nap on the way down.

    I would never turn down sweet rolls.

    Brice's and I are headed out about 12:30 and should get to camp about 430-5. Alvis should be about an hour or two behind us. You might catch him at the Klondyke turn off or on the trail.

    @Garrissey if you come up from I-10 near Wilcox it is all dirt to Mammouth. If you come from l-10 up through Sanford to a Thatcher and Pima then you would turn west on the Klondyke road. When you get to the T-junction turn right and stay on the road all the way through the visitors center. M

    Look at the maps that Brice sent out. One is Gaia and you need that app or the other is google maps I believe.
