Default Bill Moore Lake August 19

As I indicated in another thread on this forum, and also at the meeting last week, I will be leading a run up Bill Moore Lake on Saturday, August 19. This is timed to coincide with the Rally the following day.

Bill Moore Lake is a fairly easy trail that starts out just above the town of Empire and ends up at Bill Moore Lake right at timberline. It is a very scenic trail, and features some really spectacular views. It only takes about an hour and a half to go from the trailhead to the lake, so we can spend plenty of time hiking around the lake and enjoying the views.

While it is suitable to do in a stock Toyota 4x4, there is the possibility of some scratches from tree branches on some of the narrow sections in the woods. There is one optional steep hill climb near the beginning of the trail for those who want a bit of a challenge. Since this section is steep and narrow, we send someone around via the bypass, to the top to make sure no one is trying to drive down the hill while we are going up it; you don't want to have to back up or back down if you can avoid it.

We will meet at 10:00AM at the Burger King in Downieville, which is an exit from I-70. CB channel 4; if there is too much chatter from others using that channel, we will switch to channel 5 once we are on the trail. Bring lunch, plenty of water, warm clothing in case of inclement weather, sunscreen, and your camera. Pets must be on a leash.

Happy cruisin'!

I'll be down for that run as long as I get a chance to get my timing checked and carb adjusted (not sure if its running quite right), but I can't promise anything.

I can check your timing; there aren't many carb adjustments: Idle speed, choke idle speed and idle mixture is all you get with a screwdriver. Anything else and you're having to change out jets.

If more people don't sign on for Bill Moore Lake, is there a possiblilty of everyone doing Red Cone instead?

Maybe next year the rally should be held on Saturday with runs on Sunday. That way, there could be sign-ups for various trails at the rally for attendees to choose from. Just a thought, might get more interest that way.

I will be leading Bill Moore one way or the other; this has been the plan for a long time - we wanted an easy run for stockers and newbies. Plus, it is absolutely beautiful up there and it's a much quicker run than Red Cone. Since the trailhead is so close to town, and the trail is relatively short, we can sleep in and still make it home in the afternoon.
