    It was definitely chilly. When we woke up the water bottles were all half frozen so that is a decent indication of temperature.

    Between the sleeping pad, sleeping bag, warm clothing and a generous helping of Fireball we were warm enough.

    AR this year, rear bumper in early part of next year. And a shit-ton of sand we can dump on this trail to shoot into something other than rocks.

    Who made your rear bumper again?

    We took Gold Mntn to Pacific Crest.

    Click the link under DIRECTIONS. It's much better than the crappy map they have on the site at the bottom.

    Have at least 4x4, sliders, front skid and quality tires.

    How hard was it the other way? I don't see it being too difficult because you got gravity on your side

    Thanks. I like your build also.
    It is easier for sure but still a few climbs over some rocks on the backside. For how my truck was set up at that time it was the better way to go.
