Here are a couple pictures from the past 2 days' adventures. More to come but I'm off now to go be "Where In So Cal Is Cammy San Diego".

Damn you drive fast when I'm not around!

What doesn't kill me does NOT make me stronger. It makes me anxious, bitchy, and vulnerable...but nobody wants to see that embroidered on a pillow...Lisa Kogan...thx LXL...sorry i stole it from you! Ok, maybe I'm not sorry :-P

Cool video. Forest looks great 3x time would have been the way I like to roll sometimes.
I guess I will have to start learning the numbers for the roads

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.


Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.

2N93 still hasn't opened for the season yet. Also, the gate on 2N13 at 3N14 is still closed. 2N13 is the road to get to Butler Peak.

Have you heard if the public will be allowed to drive to Butler Peak this summer?

Update from yesterday - The snow patch is barely noticeable on 3N12, in fact we saw a small Honda car (Civic, I think) that I have to assume passed over the snow patch unless they drove up & turned around before it.
We completed the eastern section of 3N08 - map: [Click Here]. 4WD is a must for this part of the road as there is a steep, rocky section of the road.
3N14 from 3N08 to Big Pine Flat is in great shape and I believe a passenger car would have no trouble making it from Fawnskin to Big Pine Flat on this route - map: [Click Here]
From Big Pine Flat you can head East on 3N16 which is supposed to be a good road (green rating, I believe). But there is a section just east of Big Pine Flat that had seen much erosion in the past few years. We did not need 4WD for any of this road yesterday. We went all the way to 2N09 - map: [Click Here] but the higher clearance of the Tundra was nice to have. There was one spot where I tried to cross a rutted section on the road and ended up having only my left front and right rear wheels on the ground! I had to back up and approach the rut from a different angle to get through.
3N97 - map: [Click Here] and 3N04Y - map: [Click Here] have been closed, I believe, since the Butler 2 Fire. They still have closed gates at the A & B markers on the previous 2 map links.

A change of underwear is helpful, also

Who owns the water and who is selling it to Nestle? If it is the Forest Service (US Dept of Agriculture) and not the BB Water District, it is a Federal issue and the only recourse would be to contact the U.S Representative for Big Bear or either/both of our two California Senators.

You know it'll just be passed on to the customer. I'm not a Nestle supporter. Just trying to be realistic and see all the sides. People are quick to complain about jobs lost in the mountains, not realizing the choices they make lead to them.

Yes LJ that is true and a good thing but t hey should pay a realistic price for a precious resource.

Don't forget that they pay taxes and employ people

The way I understand it blue Meadow is they are getting this water for ridiculously low rate water that belongs to the mountains in the citizens of this county and then they sell it at and make an obscene profit. I know that's the American way but it should not be on the back of us and the precious water that belongs to our mountains. That's my thought anyway

Impulse 2 flew right over the valley, but I forgot to go out and look with the tracker. Though it may have been too cloudy anyway...

Is this a Nestle meeting you are talking about? The only one i know about already happened on April 18. Is there another one dealing with bottled water? I did submit a letter to the Forest Service today - the last day for commenting on the Nestle permit.

Who is going to the meeting on Thursday about bottled water? I want to go and sit with others I know. We can not have folks taking our spring water away from us. Let them make their own. Our forest needs the water. All of it. And we do not need the large trucks hauling water out of the hills.
If we do not stop it other companies will come take our water, and we are having enough problems getting enough water..(:...you know the song and dance. Who else is going to the meeting I can see there?
