4th Of July Weekend
Dishpan Springs, Holcomb Creek Trail and John Bull, July 4-5, 2003: The weather was perfect, but the bugs were, well, quite buggy. The trip started with our first run over the newly revamped Deep Creek/Dishpan Springs trail. The lovely concrete bridge now stands at the old water crossing.
The Dirt Devils are making good progress on the new and improved entrance. The final touches should be added this weekend, July 12, to make for a sufficiently challenging obstacle to discourage vehicles that are not worthy of the waterfall from getting past the entrance. They have done a great job thus far, as it was a bit of a challenge already! We did manage to get a long bed S10 over it though, so there is still some work to do.
Next major obstacle was the Dishpan waterfall. We then continued on to Holcomb Creek. On Sunday we ran John Bull with Brian.
Not only did the CJ hit 199,000 miles, but we met up with alot of people on the trail including some rockin’ Jeepers from the San Diego 4 Wheelers club on Saturday. Congratulations to the newlyweds Jim and Kelly who were married in Big Bear and had a Jeepin’ honeymoon!
