    Funny story!

    I took this video on the way back from dropping off some friends at the trail head who had to head back home, so I had ran into him earlier wayyyy down the trail. He and 4 of his dufus friends took their 2wd Ford Focus down this trail about 6 miles the night before, got stuck on an incline, and waited out the night in the car. The morning we were there, they had a dead battery, so I tried to give them a jump but it just wouldn't even click (something else was wrong, and I didn't feel like playing doctor that day). They said the sheriff and tow truck (evidently a Toyota Pickup with a flatbed) were on the way.

    He was just walking back to the trail head when I passed him...no idea what he was doing, but I didn't really care to find out. Morons shouldn't be driving on a dirt road covered in ice and snow in the middle of the night with ANY car, let alone a Ford Focus with no means of communication to the rangers or emergency response.

    Now that I think about it, you're probably right!

    It was 3N14 just off Highway 38 in Fawnskin, around Big Bear Lake.
