Yeah, I did sell the FJC. I have been busy with the house and work. Just been hectic with all the changes in the last couple of months. Summer can't come soon enough, plan to run Rubicon, Dusy, Swamp lake and kokopelli's trail this year. If the ban is lifted in the EDF, want to run DV again too.

Here's a map: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=39.33...num=1&t=h&z=14

Once you're on Carlyle road you just keep going until you can't anymore, really. There's a split a little past driveshaft hill where the left fork goes down to Eagle Lakes and the right goes down to Fordyce.
Here's the norcalttora description: http://www.norcalttora.com/trails/eagle_lakes.php

Lets do it Cha! DV is good to go we just have to run it from the south side to the water crossing. We can't cross it just turn around and go back it's about 8 hours of wheelin. I'll be ready for the Con in a few months Linked front and rear

One of my buddies built this 4x4 mapping site that rates the difficulty of each trail. He's got almost every one in cali and goes all the way over to Virgina. He's done all of them on a cherokee on 33's so you can get an idea of relative difficulty...

http://4x4trailmaps.com/Trail_Map_Index.php
He carries a gps and trail mapping software in his jeep and built this website based on where he's been.

The only runs i've commited to this year are
Moab in october
Rubicon in July
Fordyce August
All the VORRA Desert Races
Hopefully the MINT 400 in Vegas in march

And i'm sure i'll have some gold lake/snake lake, slickrock, dusy and other runs peppered in throughout the year.

That's an awesome website, thanks for posting it!
Is he the guy that wrote the guides to backcountry and 4wd trails for different states? I know that the author of those guides drove every trail he wrote about in a Jeep.

No he didn't write those guides, those guides have been around for a while and my buddy is only in his late 20's and lives in sac.
