    Default 2017 SoCal Summer Rally Aug, 4-6 Big Bear California San Bernardino Mtns. camping

    Ok everyone the 2017 Southern California Summer Rally will be held again in the San Bernardino Mountains, in the Big Bear area amongst the trees.

    Dates: Friday August 4 through Sunday August 6.

    Location: I have reserved/pre-paid for the Big Pine Flat Equestrian Group Campground, the Campground is ours starting around 2PM Friday.

    The location has picnic tables, vault toilets, water, grills, campfire circles (campfire and grill use allowed, but is dependent on current fire danger I have to verify before leaving at the time of the event.)

    I will be bringing a stand alone sink, soap and towel for a hand washing station.

    We will be camping at the event, there will be truck drives, horse shoes, Darts and probably other activities. It will be a fun relaxing weekend away from it all, along with seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

    Friday dinner is pot luck so be creative!

    Saturday I will be Barbequing for everyone.

    Friday-convoy/trail run to camp starting at the I-15 freeway in Hesperia traveling down Main Street Hesperia then we head up the dirt roads to the campground, more details below.

    Any steel soldiers members are welcome to attend the event, so come out and join us!

    Be sure to bring plenty of fuel and supplies, including your favorite beverages.

    Please Tread Lighly, do not park on vegetation and stay on established roads and trails.

    You can go to the Campsite at any time during the Rally, just follow the directions below.

    There is a $15.00 per person fee to help cover the campground fees, Kids are free.

    Please post up if attending, what you will be driving and how many in your group. you can also just show up at the site anytime during the event, I just like to get an idea of how many will be attending ahead of time to have enough food for the BBQ.

    Adventure Pass info, Basically to drive to the camp ground and back no stopping no pass required. if you stop along the way a $5.00 Day Adventure for each day a Pass is required or an annual pass can be purchased for $30 which are available at retailers such as Big 5 etc., and the Big Bear Discovery center. if going on any truck trail rides or the convoy it would be a good idea to have one since we will be stopping at points.

    Where to buy Adventure Passes, retail stores and online: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/sbnf/p...fsbdev7_007751

    Directions to Big Pine Flat Equestrian Group Campground:
    Latitude : 34.315212
    Longitude : -117.016314
    Elevation : 6820ft

    Highway 330 to Running Springs, then head northeast on Highway 18 to Highway 38. Do not cross the Big Bear Lake Dam. Continue on Highway 38 to Fawnskin. Turn left onto Forest Road 3N14(also known as Rim of the World Dr and Coexy Rd/ Coxey truck trail.) and continue about 6 miles to Forest Road 3N16. Turn left and continue less than a mile, then turn right and continue to the campground.

    Friday Convoy: meeting spot is behind the Shell gas station across the street from the In-N-Out Burger located at 13074 Main St Hesperia, CA 92345, right off the 15 fwy. Morning meet time and departure to be determined. The route will take us to Bowen Ranch Rd and Roundup way in apple valley CA, going up Coxey Truck Trail (NF 3n14) passed Horse springs Campground(vault restrooms available) we could have lunch or snack here depending on time weather etc., then continue on to big pine flats which is where the campground is located.

    Y'all should have a get together during the Spring and Fall too. These seem to be too far in between.

    I'm planning to come. Read about it on facebook from Bearret Pemberton. Not sure if I'll bring my deuce as it's about 8 hr drive and it will be triple digit temps for most of the trip.

    I'm good up to 90 in the deuce. After that, forget it. Not worth it.

    I could go west into the mountains and then north through them to avoid the heat but that will take even longer. I'd have to take Friday and Monday off just to get there and back.
