RD’s Adventures – Final Destination… of 2012

Earthdate: 12/30/2012
Location: Big Bear, CA

Feeling the need to get away from the city for a few days we, my family and I, decided to head up to Big Bear, CA  for a relaxing vacation of snow and playing. After spending time with my kids in the snow and playing family games…. IT WAS TIME TO WHEEL!!! We met up with a couple friends Chris and Steve and headed out for a mellow/moderate adventure to the back roads of Big Bear. I planned out a route that consisted of running Gold Mountain Trail, Little John Bull, and the Jeep Squeeze. As we arrived at the trail head the snow barely started to come down but by the time we were up and over Gold Mountain the snow was really falling. The snow was not too thick to make the adventure really difficult but it was enough to give us a good time. After running down Little John Bull we paused for a photo-op and then headed over to Jeep Squeeze where we found fresh un-tracked snow. One of the challenges of snow wheeling is losing your way and missing the trail. That is just what we did half way through Jeep Squeeze finding our selves hiking around looking for the trail. We quickly found our way using a GPS system and wheeled on through. Here are a few pics that we took along the way. Happy New Year!!!
