So the birthday boy, Randy, and I discussed taking a run up Spring Creek this Sunday June 6th with Dee Rocks and Meanie. Below is a hijack from CO4x4 trip report Monday 5/31. We will meet at the Burger King at the Downeyville/Dumont Exit at 9am on the trail by 9:30.

"Ran Spring Creek Monday with my youngest son. I've got a CJ on 35's and he has a 'Yota pickup on 33's. It was his first time wheeling a moderate trail so that was fun. He was pretty hyped after driving up the first obstacle (the hill with the rock slab). No troubles except he slipped on a rock as he was leaving the rock garden and got a little "blemish" and cracked a tail light lens. The trail is pretty much open. There is some snow in the rock garden but you can get through without getting in the snow. The by-pass was melted. We came down through Lamartine and the snow was pretty much gone."

Thanks for the warm welcomes at last nights meeting/drinking.
I am at the fire station on Sat 6/5 and will try to meet up in the hills asap. Not sure how fast I can make it from Aurora to Dumont. I read the latest report, I'm guessing I will be OK with minor mods to a 2003 4thGen 4Runner?:confused:

Should be fine, when do you get off shift and what do you mean by minor mods?

Steve, Do you want the trailer? LMKit will be cleared off tonight so that is not a problem. If you want it you can come by Saturday and grab it.

So if you leave the firehouse at 8, what time do you think you'll be to the Downieville Burger King?

So sorry I missed the run! In a 24hr period, we ran 18 calls....
Our last one was 05:15 this am.

Drove home with one eye closed and then recovered until 1:30 this afternoon.:offtobed:

I am planning on the "Blow off work... run" 6/17 though.

I saw in an old post that a member in a 100series land cruiser made it through, I bet it was a good time.
