We'll be doing a Lucerne Run Saturday, June 2nd. Some of the San Diego So. Cal. Tacoma crew will be heading up this way so we want to make it worth their drive.
Right now I have an 80 loop from Lucerne to the 40 fwy and back to Lucerne. I just gotta figure out how to convert it from a Garmin file to Lowrance. I was considering a Barstow to Lucerne run but I'd rather avoid the freeway to Barstow and stay on the dirt. Therefore, we'll be romping through Lucerne up to Barstow and back in the dirt.
Radio channel -- 153.110
8am off the 15 fwy at Sierra Blvd in Fontana at the Arco gas station.
9am off Bear Valley Rd. in Victorville at TBD. We should be in Victorville before 9am so we may be leaving earlier than 9am.
10am aired down & on the trail.
Make sure you bring at least water and lunch if for some reason we can't make it to Slash X for lunch.
IMO, you don't need to carry extra gas. We'll top off in Apple Valley which is about 30 miles to the main trail head. From that point we shouldn't be driving more than 150 miles in the dirt. Feel free to bring a 5 gallon gas can to be safe if you prefer.
