There will be a Friday night run to Bald Mt. and a few different runs Saturday. Trails are open to all 4x4 vehicles from stock all the way to extreme, however depending on vehicle condition trail bosses will have final say if your vehicle is capable for the run or not.

There will be a basic cal4wheel vehicle safety check so please use common sense for vehicle condition. If you need help getting your rig trail ready please let us know and we will see if we can get it ready before you head up the hill.

For the ham radio guys we will be using the repeater up on Deadwood to talk to those coming up.  147.180 + 146.2.  for simplex we will be using the channel that Fresno 4wd club normally uses which is 147.500 and a back up simplex of 146.500.  Cb channel is 37 like always.

Please drive slow around camp as there will be children playing.  No discharge of fire arms of any type allowed in camp due to children.  Pets are allowed as long as they are dog or kid friendly (young kids grabbing, pulling and poking them) please maintain control of them or please don't bring them.

Directions to the Bald Mountain Base Camp.  (where we are camping)
From Highway 99 Take Highway 180 East in Fresno, then Take Hwy 168 East into Shaver Lake area,
Pass shaver lake and continue to the first Snow park on your RIGHT side Tamarack Ridge.
Go to the back of the parking lot and you will find the road continues.
Stay on the main road and watch for signs pointing to Rock Hopper.  I'm not sure of the distance but for some people it can take up to 30 min on Tamarack road with a large travel trailer.

We will be joining Bakersfield 4x4Him on this amazing weekend.

4x4Him Bakersfield will be leading club members on a night run up the Miller Jeep Trail outside Frazier Park on 5/26/18.

 A few of us are camping at the Gorman Off Road Park Friday and Saturday Night.

You are welcome to camp with us or just drive up for the night run. We are meeting at the Flying J in Frazier Park at 4:30pm, pulling out at 5pm to head to the trail head off Lockwood Valley Road. Flying J is at: 42810 Frazier Mountain Road, Lebec. If you are driving up from Bakersfield you will want to leave by 3:30pm to arrive at the Flying J by 4:30pm. (yes I know some up you can make it there in half an hour, but some people will be following the speed limit and pulling their rigs). If you are camping with us post below and we will find a meeting spot in Bakersfield to drive up together on Friday night, leaving Bakersfield at 6pm. You can also join us for camping just Saturday night after the run if you don't want to drive all the way back to Bakersfield that night. Just arrive Saturday morning and set up camp with us. This is one of our most popular annual runs. We usually have at least 20 rigs join us, that's without adding the Fresno group. So we may be out most of the night. We usually don't get back to the highway until 1am, but it may be later this year depending on the number of rigs and how much trouble we run into on the trail. Vehicle Requirements: Working 4 wheel drive, oversized Off road Tires (32 inch or larger work well), a tow point from front and back of your rig (in case you need a tug or need to give someone behind you a tug), a tow strap. Recommended: skid plates (body protection), a 3 inch lift. CB radio or hand held walkie talkie. A rear wheel locker comes in handy but isn't required.

Pack drinks and snacks (leave Alcohol at home), warm clothes (it gets cold at night), bug repellant. The first 3/4 of the trail has lots of sandy hill climbs, ruts to climb over, and a few side obstacles. The final 1/4 of the the trail is straight up the mountain with lots of bolders to climb. We end up at the camp ground at the top of the Gorman Off Road Park then take the dirt road 10 miles back to the highway. Those camping will pull off into the camp ground when we get back to the Off Road Park and the rest of the group will air up their tires and head back to Bakersfield. Kids are welcome, but we will be out late.



Christian Talk / My Promise Land
« on: May 11, 2018, 09:04:40 PM »
A good friend of mine, Bishop Rob Culver has started a monthly blog on his website.  Thought it would be a great idea to share it with everybody.

My Promise Land

Have you ever stopped to think about the promise land?  The promise land was the place that God had promised to the Nation of Israel. Because of all the enemies along the way, it would be an extreme challenge for them to get there.  God has promised us a promise land too.  We call it heaven.

Let me remind you, Ladies and Gentlemen, that there will always be plenty of enemies that will try to stop you from getting to your promise land.

One of my favorite comic strips is Peanuts.  One day Lucy and Linus were sitting in front of the television set, when Lucy said to Linus, “go get me a glass of water”. Linus, looking surprised said, “why should I do anything for you, you never do anything for me.”

“On your seventy-fifth birthday”, Lucy promised, “I’ll bake you a cake”. Linus got up, headed for the kitchen and said, “life is more pleasant when you have something to look forward to.”

Linus was right, life is more pleasant when you have something to look forward to.

That’s why the Christian life is a blessed life.  It’s a life of overflowing hope. Before salvation, the Bible described us as ‘without God and without hope.’ (Ephesians 2:12) But now, we ‘rejoice in hope of the glory of God.’ (Romans 5:2)

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s really no problem to face those obstacles and struggles knowing that I have something to look forward to.  I have my hope fixed on eternity with Jesus, my promise land.
