    The Como Chingas Off Road Big Bear Fest 2015 started off with Hawk and JD-Rockz rolling into Holcomb Creek Campground Weds afternoon. After setting up, a short run up to John Bull gatekeeper ensued and the event was in forward motion.

    Thurs around 1:00 Hawk and Cammo headed for Jacoby Canyon and Horse Thief Springs. Had lunch at the end of the trail and headed back to camp.

    Fri’s trail ride was off to a slow start. BajaToy blew out two tires on his trailer and arrived at Holcomb campground at 3:00. At 3:30 the trail ride was rolling as we headed to Gold Mountain off Hwy 18. At the first obstacle the group ran into trail traffic from the Inland Empire Jeep Forest Fest. Once we started rolling all made it through. The second obstacle, The Stairway, proved too much for FJ4x420. Attempting a “bump it up and over” method proved too much for the drivetrain and the rear diff let go. The group reached 3N16 trail at 6:45 and called it a day, saving the John Bull connector for another day and everyone headed back to the Holcomb campground.

    Sat’s trail ride found BajaToy heading out with the group for Run 1 at 7:00 am and Hawk leaving with Run 2 group at 8:00. Run 1 with BajaToy arrived at the Dishpan Springs trailhead, finding Big Douggie Doug waiting for the action. Dishpan Springs was done in no time and off to Lower Holcomb Creek and Upper Holcomb Creek the crew went. With Nelson and fjBruizer each blowing out a tire, coupled with more Forest Fest jeep traffic, time slipped away and the infamous John Bull trail was just not in the days runs. The Run 1 crew reached camp at 6:30.

    Hawk and Run 2 crew cruised down 3N16 and met up with TPFJ at Lower Larga trailhead. Splish Splash and Lower Larga was done. Next up was Upper Holcomb Creek, which proved to be smooth except at the water crossing where a few rigs got Turtled and had to be strapped out or over. Back up 3N16 to 3N07 where a very narrow and twisty trail showed us up close to the trees, climbing rocks and working gold mines. Approaching the end of the trail, the crew ran into another 25 rigs from the Forest Fest. Off and running again, at 2:00 the John Bull connector was underway. At 3:15, Run 2 had completed all 4 trails and was on schedule, arriving back at Holcomb Valley campground at 3:30.

    As night began to fall, 7:30 had the two groups back together again at the camp fire for good times and stories. After a short dinner and adult cocktails, the raffle gifts were handed out. Off Road Warehouse, All Pro Off Road, Harbor Freight Tools and Foscam Digital Technologies provided great gifts for the CCOR BBF 2015.

    In addition, Cammo, having attended many CCOR events finally became a member, receiving his CCOR sticker.

    Sun morning found the CCOR Big Bear Fest 2015 come to a close and at 11:30, ending the way it began, Hawk and JD-Rockz leaving Holcomb Valley campground and making the way back to Highway 18.

    Blew my rear diff on Gold mountain the day before the big run. I was able to limp down the mountain in 4 high then towed my rig to El Segundo. Thanks everyone for helping me and good times.
