    Welcome Paul. When you do the Big Bear run post up in the " What's going on in SoCal" thread in the California region section so all us locals can see it.

    I will do it for sure. A Big Bear run may happen sooner than later since, due to some family matters, my Moab trip is a no go. The upside is that I can do more local runs!

    This is the man you want leading the trip, plain and simple. he needs no map at all. Knows all the trails and has been running them for a good 40 years.

    Thanks for the kind words Brian! Has it been that long..? Damn I'm getting old! Not quite 40 years, but 35 is still a looong time. Stop the ride!!! I want to get off!!!

    Well if you figure the years you spent riding them on your bike as a kid it it would be about right.

    So true! We had a cabin in Green Valley Lake when I was a kid and I did spend a lot of time riding those trails. Back then I used to wonder what those posts with the odd numbers meant!
