Ok guys Im gonna try to find a spot alongside falls dam or wolfs den and set up a small campsite. If anyone wants to join me look for the silver 4th gen 4 runner and a small campfire. Ill probably arrive around 7-7:30.

trail passes can be purchased at eldorado outpost for 5$ a day or 25 for a year.

camping is available in a campground at Arrowhead campground or on the trails for free.

I will be heading down the outpost around 8 to get some breakfast and pack my lunch/prep my truck for the day.

Once again if your arriving saturday morning I generally park in the grass at the far end of the parking lot to gather a group. If you have a CB I will keep mine on channel 9 and I will keep my FRS radio on channel 4.

If anyone wants my cell number just PM me. Ill get in touch with you.

ok so for anyone looking to camp... Im going to try for a spot on wolfs den. Ill have my 4runner and small trailer at one of the switchbacks with a nice large flat area off to the left of the trail.

To get there follow the forest service road straight down until you get to the wolfs den trail head follow wolfs den down till you see me on your left.

the rest of you I will see saturday morning.

Looks like the guys camping are about to be hit by a good storm! Looks most of the rain is to the west of the park, but there might be just enough to make things a little more interesting tomorrow.

The green monster is prepped and ready to go.

Just got back and what a day! Sunny, a little muggy but certainly not a smoker. Already knew Chad, met Mike, Bob and Lisa, Brian and Chad II! Four FJ's, two Iceburg White, one being a TT, and two Army Green, one of those a TT (I think just one!) and two 4 Runners. Cant wait to see the pics (Lisa:D ) and wheel with you guys again!

What an outstanding day! Thanks to everyone for coming out and showing me the ropes and rocks! GOD I LOVE THIS FJ!! I would look up at the jagged rocks on what looked like a sheer cliff and think how in the heck am I going to make it up THAT!? And then once I got going and following the directions of some great spotting work, the FJ just bounced up and over everything like a magic carpet! WHOO HOO! A great great day!

LISA! Tell us when you will be able to upload or share the pics and vids for today! And thanks for recording us!
