NorCal: Slickrock + More Camping Trip 11/1-11/3

Alright this is my last date change, sorry about all of the confusion I may have caused.

Where:
Slickrock. Trailhead 38° 28' 07.5" N 120° 00' 40.2" W

Corral Hollow (7N35)

http://4x4trailmaps.com/4x4Trails.php?Trail_ID=5

http://4x4trailmaps.com/4x4Trails.php?Trail_ID=77

When: We will meet Friday afternoon around 4:00 PM at the Circle K in Farmington. From there we will convoy up to the trailhead where we will setup camp for the night.

Who: Anyone! Feel free to bring friends.

Requirements: Sliders and 4wd. Lockers, armor and skids recommended. Although I've done it open-open with no skids numerous times and I've seen others do it too. It has been noted that the trail may be slightly more difficult so underbelly skids are highly recommended.

Food:
Carson - I will cook scrambled eggs for everyone Saturday morning and I will also bring some sodas to share with everyone as well as some snacks.

Plans: Meet at Circle K in Farmington on Friday at 4:00 PM
4469 Escalon Bellota Road, Farmington, CA
Then convoy up Hwy 4 to the trailhead where we will setup camp.

Saturday morning we will run Slickrock at around 9:30.
If time permits we will then go down to corral hollow and run that trail.

Then we will set up camp somewhere (yet to be determined, suggestions?) EDIT: Just staying Friday night due to lack of people.


So who's down?

And of course you're welcome to just come for either saturday or sunday too, we will hit the trail at around 9:30 AM on Saturday and 10:00 am on Sunday.

There is the possibility of it being balls cold at night, so make sure to bring one or two warm sleeping bags and extra clothes.


List:
Carson
Brent (Camp Fri)
Eric (Saturday morning)

If you run deer valley on Sunday I might show up. Just did slick rock with Proyota (Brad) this last Sunday.

Some good information by Stanley.

Cold weather sleeping bags I recommend:


US Army Modular Sleep System, it's a 3 bag system: Summer Patrol bag, Cold Weather bag, GoreTex Bivvy -- Stay warm and toasty down past freezing.

Weather at Lake Alpine
http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/USCA3438


Tips:
Wear long underwear when going to bed or sweat pants, wear a sweatshirt to sleep. If you guys stop by the river, bring earplugs or ear muffs to block out the sound of the water and other vehicles doing late night runs.
Last time we went, Alex brought one for us to use. It was nice and gentlemanly.

Portable Toilet solution:
Some other notes for first time wheelers gathered from other wheeling forums:

1) Pack in -> Pack out. Anything you bring in, you bring out. Poop in a bag, put your trash in a bag, take it to a campsite dumpster
2) Don't go off trail, stick to the trail and clean everything up
3) If you flop or otherwise cause a liquid or oil spill, make sure you have the proper gear to clean it up off the trail. Water flows to Lake Alpine where fish breed, so don't ruin the lake.
4) If you see trash that isn't yours on the trail, be the bigger person and pick it up

From previous thread -

Ps. I'd be in for a 3 day weekend. Slick Rock/Deer Valley/Coral Hollow? Just throwin out ideas.
Awesome! Hope you get it done. Do you know if deer valley is open? That would be a great combination of trails.

Yes sir! Awesome and yeah I think we can all run it fairly smoothly.

OK sounds like my GF is cool with one last run before the snow so I'm 90% sure we'll be driving down Saturday morning to wheel it with Ya, just no camping.

Alright I'm leaning more towards being IN but not 100% yet. This whole headgasket replacement has been a biatch. But, everythings done and I was able to start the truck and run her around a little bit. Sounded good and no immediate issues but I'll know if anything serious pops up within the next few days.

I camped out in the last group that went a year ago or something and got to test my new tires out I'd go again but I'm moving soon and scheduling wise I can't take time off work now. That and I'm probably going to have to drive to santa cruz and back a couple times before I move so I need to save gas money for those trips
