Default Sunday August 12th - Difficult run to Spring Creek

You will meet at 8:30AM in Downieville and follow Jeremy (Jkimmel) up to Spring Creek. This trail has 3 real difficult obstacles and two can by bypassed for the more general group runs. This trail run will do all the obstacles (You can bypass 2 of them if you want)

You should have a rear locker, at least 33's (35's are better) and sliders are a must along with a tcase skid plate.

Post up if you plan on coming so Jeremy can plan accordingly as your Trail leader.

Here are a few trip reports from previous visits there.

Jeremy, anything else you want to let these people know?

try to be on time so we can get going, Spring Creek can get really busy on the weekends and sometimes it takes longer waiting than wheeling! I doubt it will be too busy this late in the year but be ready to have fun

Thanks Jeremy, you should Clarifyu what time to meet and when you are heading out. Most club runs we do a 15 to 30 minute window. e.g. start to meet at 9 and leave at 9:30, or 9:15.

Thanks again for leading.

FYI: Third obstacle was really dug out last time we were up there, making it difficult even for the single locker guys.

If it has been fixed, then no worries. If not, it is doable, but the correct line is critical. Watched a jeep get himself in a very bad spot. If you run into another group, this will likely be where you get hung up waiting.

There is a scheduling issue with this run. So far no one is signed up. Is anyone planning on coming? Otherwise, we will take the easy way out and cancel this run.

Rather than cancelling, how about another "Moderate run" since it seems like all the interest is in that level of trail. Already 15 signed on for Red Cone...

I'm ok with that. What do others think? I know me and the girls will be doing Red Cone regardless.

We may get a bunch of people to sign up tomorrow at the Rally. Who knows? Another moderate run would be cool too.
