    The Como Chingas Off Road Big Bear Fest 2016 was held June 9, 10, 11 & 12. CCOR BBF 2016 started off Thurs with Hawk and Roxy Girl arriving around noon at CCOR headquarters, Holcomb Valley campground. At 3:00 pm Mongo Mike arrived and quickly, Hawk, Roxy Girl and Mongo Mike were kicking off CCOR BBF2016 with a few craft beers. As 6:00 pm rolled around, Hawk and Roxy Girl took off for a quick run on John Bull Connector as Mongo Mike headed into town to check into his hotel. Arriving back at camp at 7:30 pm, Hawk and Roxy Girl found JD Rockz settling in for the festivities.

    Preparing for Fri’s run, Hawk found a leaking CV boot and at 7:00 am Hawk and JD Rockz were swapping in a new CV axle. At 8:00 am TPFJ, City Hick, Mongo Mike, El Jeffe, Bobbie Nelson and TLC Mike arrived. After a meet and greet and a few cups of coffee the CCOR crew found themselves heading out for John Bull at 10:30 am. John Bull was ran without a hitch until the last obstacle, the gatekeeper. Mongo Mike and El Jeffe needed to be strapped out the last few feet and JD Rockz got hung up on a large rock, rolling on the rock and pancaked his rear drive shaft. JD Rockz headed back to camp, removed the rear drive shaft and headed home using the front drive wheels. After a short break the CCOR crew headed for the John Bull Connector. At 3:00 pm carnage ensued which found Mongo Mike snapping of the steering connector mount off of the passenger spindle. Hawk and TPFJ headed to Big Bear City for a portable welder from Big Bear Rentals. At 5:00 pm Hawk and TPFJ arrived on scene with the welding equipment. At 6:15 pm, Mongo Mike had the welding task finished and El Jeffe and Bobbie Nelson put everything back together. Mongo Mike started down John Bull Connector and everything was looking good, 200 feet later the weld broke and the tire went sideways and snapped the CV axle. Again Mongo Mike, El Jeffe and Bobbie Nelson busted out the repairs and at 7:15 pm we started down the trail…300 feet later the weld busted again. Mongo Mike, left with no options, backed down John Bull Connector. At the bottom TPFJ busted out the strap line and Mongo Mike was towed back to CCOR headquarters, arriving at 9:00 pm. After a late dinner and a few adult foamy beverages the crew called it a night at 10:00 pm.

    Sat morning at 8:15 am BajaToy, TwistedToy, City Hick, Russ Young and John Lugo left and ran John Bull, Lower and Upper Holcomb Creek. At 9:00 am Hawk, Roxy Girl, El Jeffe, Bobbie Nelson, Mongo Mike, TPFJ and TLC Mike left for John Bull Connector, Lower Larga and Upper Holcomb Creek. All the CCOR crew arrived back at Holcomb Valley Campground at 4:00 pm. After dinner, the evening wound down around the camp fire with tales of the day and several adult foamy beverages

    Sun morning, Hawk and Roxy Girl, TPFJ and TLC Mike loaded up and left Holcomb Valley campground…an EPIC CCOR event, Como Chingas Off Road Big Bear Fest 2016.
