Sounds like my kind of trail! Great photos, I'd love to get up to the Sierras some time soon.

Yep, we need to start a detailed thread on that. Worked really well, but need some fine tuning on the setup. Will definitely be handy for larger groups, especially if we break into smaller groups on trips and larger areas.

Was cool when Ed phoned me and knew where I was

How did the Nittos cope with the trails.
I think they did OK, but would love to see a tougher sidewall version for Joel though



Great pix guys. Definitely an area I would like to spend more time at and hike up to some of those peaks. Just driving the trail would be missing the point in this place,as there are plenty of very cool spots to soak up the fresh mountain air and scenery.

That definitely looked like a tough trail - are there other trails that are easier so more stock vehicles can get to the OHV camp sites? Sounds like a multitude of trails. Looks like ya'll had fun - that's what counts.

The OHv site is fairly easy to get too pavement all the way. Most trails in the area are fire roads and shelf roads aside from the more hardcore trails. definelty can be done in slighty modded rig to almost stock. I had no lockers for the tuff stuff and made it thru fairly easy with the good spotters we had..

It's still converting. They moved data centers yesterday and weren't allowing new users or video uploads. So I assume today's volume is just high. When it's finished, the video should be in the above post. I just figured you guys would like to know how long till its done
