I'm moving back to California this August, and I'm planning out a few trips for later this year.

An Anza Borrego desert round around Black Friday in later November and a Big Bear Snow trip when there's enough snow to take a few kids out for a sled right and to do a casual trail loop in the area, maybe coming in from Apple Valley/Lucerne Valley "the back way" up the mountain. and ending in Fawnskin/Big Bear.

Just an update, still in the plans for those rough dates. I'm moving to Rancho Santa Margarita next week. It'll be nice to hit the trails from the "other side" of the LA region without having to burn an hour of time crossing the city :)

Finally mostly unpacked in the new house in RSM. Hummers getting everything looked over by Dr. Mike.

-Got a new top for the truck.
-Mike tracked down a drain issue with my electrical system, my monsoon amp is fried.
-Got my front drive shaft rebalanced
-New harmonic balancer and engine seals.
-Swapping in a rock ram setup for assisted steering and a new steering pump.
-Getting doors realigned for a better seal to keep in the HVAC.

I have a friend who works with telescopes/optics going out to a big astronomy thing in October in the area. So I'll be heading out there to do a dry run and check out trails/changes over the past few years. Want to get my GPS-X maps and recording moved over to a newer app. Thought I lost years of trail recordings but I got all that stuff backed up now :D

Trucks still in the shop, so its 50/50 the anza borrego black friday trip will happen on that date I'll keep folks posted. I'll also update when I get a Big Bear run planned there's a lot of snow up there now I believe.

it's been a while since we did a meet-up. Hope everyone is doing great! Depending on the dates we may drive to BB from Las Vegas for the Snow run. When you have the dates please let me know.
Thanks,
Jimmy

I'll have an update tomorrow. I haven't gotten my H1 back from Tustin yet. I'll call for a status, worse case I'll post pone, it's still on the books just may have to shift it a bit. I'll call Mike Tomorrow and see where things are at.

My truck wasn't in for anything major but there was a lot of little small things thaat needed done.

As for the snow run I'll check with another friend if its ok we have a small get-together afterwards at a vacation home up there once we wrap up. I'll go up first to check out the spots in the BLM areas/Park areas where there will be no crowds or anything.

Update: No truck this week for me, even if I got the truck I'd like to do a shakedown run with the new hardware before leading/organizing a trail run. It'll happen, I'll keep everyone posted :)
