CLEGHORN AND 2N17X

Saturday May 31st
Meet 9ish at trailhead off the 15 hit the trail by 9:30ish

CAMPING??---any interest in camping sat night?? I reserved a camping spot at SILVERWOOD LAKE. let me know if you are camping for sure. 8 people max, 3 vehicles (although i'm sure theres outside parking that can accomodate our vehicles)

more details to follow. i know NOTHING bout 2n17 and have only done 1/2 of cleghorn so i'll need some trail experts to get us thru it all and back so we dont have to send up our flares.

Going to get some break in time with the trailer? That thing is amazing, the pictures in the trailer thread posts do not do it justice.

OK, I'm in for trail and camping. It'll be me and the 2 kids. Are we responsible for our own site or are you reserving a group or what?

i reserved a site that can handle multiple tents (famly site)........moderate size so our tents may be close to one another but thats ok........8 people/3 cars.......but i'm not overly concerned about this count. i'm sure there are parking places outside the immediate camping area and they probly wont come around and count all our little heads in our tents at night.

no need to reserve another site. i have it taken care of. site was $25 and if folks that end up camping want to throw donations in thats great........if not i'm not worried.

it'll be fun with the kids. i'll probly bring mine along too.......unless last minute it turns into a moms weekend away and i decide to leave hubby and the kid home so i can have some ME TIME. :)

I reccomend atleast one person bringing a front CV axle as spare, the 2nd obsticle has a very high chance of breakage. spinning tires and bouncing is not a good combo. but it is the only way to get through it. the camera as usuall does it no justice
example

there is a switchback to go around but no cake walk either.

Not much traffic on this topic, Just want to confirm: Is it still on? Who is in for sure? I have only done Cleghorn once, don't even have a map of that area... :)

It's still on martyr, I looked up Cleghorn Rd. in Wrightwood and got the map...looks fun, haven't done this trail and now look'n forward to it.

I'm working late Fri. nite into early Sat. but I'll be at the trailhead off the 15 around 9am...what CB channel are we using? So Cal FJ designated chl 5 as the CB channel but it's already assigned to spanish speeking CB'ers and very crowded...
