I am new around here but have been cruising the boards the last couple of months. Finally got my jeep and am looking for a good weekend/camping run.

I have a bone stock rubi and am not looking to destroy it just yet. So I have looked at something possibly along the lines of Bear Creek or eagles lakes. If anyone is interested in doing something of the like please let me know, a trail guide is definately welcome.

Is it a new jeep or a new driver as well? I will be your guide for Eagle lakes if you would like. But fair warning it is :yes: going to snow. It could get cold and slippery. Your jeep will do fine:yes: , Better then mine:eek: you have lockers. Clearance won't be an issue if you are familiar driving off road. When do we leave? I will need a phone number 24 hours before we leave. Burned twice left with a magor jones for off road. I will give mine as well.

Sierra? Conn?Kairo? Up for eagle lake leave Friday night come back Saturday morning. Leave late Saturday afternoon back Sunday morning? The times are for you guys to decide. I am cool with either. Hunter lake might not be bad as well.

I am a very expierenced driver and am actually a sadistical type of person:D (not really) but am looking forward to having fun in the snow. I am up for any trails that will not involve any damage (other than slight under carriage rock rash). Easy fire roads or moderate climbing is cool, you let me know, I new out here. Friday/ Saturday might be cool to allow for sunday to get un-sick:no:

I couldn't find ya's. I got there about 7:30, went to Eagle Lake tried the three camp spots that I know of but coundn't find ya.. But found a couple of new trails.. The bears must have thought I was crazy, I was honking my horn but no answer. Next time I will give you my cell phone number and set up a meet place. Anyways still had a good time, but I had to head home. Hope you had a good one too.

If you went t the "Grouse ridge trail" camp spot we were just to the west of that. Above lake level. found a cool turn around and stayed there. Had a great time. Rained all night, kept the bears in. I thought I heard a horn, I asked Nick and he looked at me like I was loosing it so I stopped commenting. L.O.L. Sorry we missed you. it would have been nice to meet more people from the board.
