    My Tahoe plan for the day just got postponed due to weather, so I'm going with the usual backup plan, Jumbo to Virginia City.

    If anyone wants to go we should be at the Jumbo Grade trail head in Washoe Valley around 930 or 10.

    Google Maps

    I'll monitor 146.460 and CB3 before I set out from there.

    Sure glad I spent the day ripping carpet out of the master bedroom instead of wasting it driving on bad dirt roads. <NOT!>

    It was a nice run! Just us in the '80 with Liam in the XJ. I'd forgotten how differently the XJ handles, with lighter weight and less flex it's a little more challenged climbing up uneven loose dirt and rock. He's getting the hang of it.

    The drop into the creek is the most serious obstacle, it's the fist couple of video clips here:
