    I plan on heading out too the Lee Vining/Bridgeport area to run a trail that I have done in years past. Plan on having it be a 1 nighter jaunt to the trails. Trail is located near the 120. I have a new 2009 Reg. Cab 4x4 that needs to see dirt, this trail in the past has been fun nothing too rowdy but enough to have a lot of fun. Don't HAVE to have a 4x4, but would be a comforting thing to have. There are patches of sand, trail scrapes by numerous sand dunes as well as washes and gulleys. A few years back a 4x2 Silverado made it first time through, but got stuck on the way back in a little sandy patch, nothing major. Eyeballing the 4th of July weekend. Would really like a Taco convoy to roll out there, to do some exploring. Any takers?
