Guys, I do appaligize, but I need to have someone take over for me as trail boss on this run.
I just accepted a new job and I leave town on Monday, I will not be back for six weeks or more. I can get you lat and long for both Street Sign and Fire Hydrant if you need it. I still can not find Phone booth, but I can get that from my brother in-law.
Dry camping. Motels, gas, markets available locally. Mud hills with bypasses. Various routes available and to be determined by participants. However plan to start with Fire Hydrant, Street Sign, and Phone Booth. Bypasses available throughout. Trails contain ratings however hard you want to make them.
We will depart camp at 9:00 Saturday.
Anyone who cares to caravan on Friday evening can meet me at the Carl's Jr, Christianitos exit in south San Clemente about 5:30 PM depending on traffic and if I can get off work on time.
Please feel free to add to the list of things you guys want to do and places you want to go while we are out there.
