So I took the afternoon off and had a little bit of free time to surf the net. Not sure how I missed this one. This is close to where I used to mountain bike when I lived in El Cajon, Ca.

Any details on this run?

Is that EVO 1.. the early years?

No kidding, right? I am not even sure how I found it. I was looking for runs in S. Nevada and this popped as a recommendation.

Nothing in particular. I used to live in El Cajon and mountain bike around there (e.g. Noble Canyon), so I'm familiar with the area. And frankly, I just like your writeups when you go on runs. Even something as simple as getting your mail sounds exciting to me. So any story behind it (whether truthful or not) would be enjoyable. :)

Looks like I need to bring my jeep the next time we return to the S.D. area?

Well, here's an old link to a trip report that I wrote for the run:

That's enough for me! We are in! We are usually down in SD in December. If you are interested in doing this again, I think we would be up for it.

..........around there (e.g. noble canyon)

Two things;
Thanks for posting that blast from the past video, I had never watched that one :thumb: And more importantly, you get two gold stars for using the correct diction "e.g." as opposed to the more commonly and incorrectly used "i.e." :D

Couldn't they both be correct? If he only biked at Noble Canyon then i. e. would have also been correct diction, no? Lol! Hope you are doing well Greg. I imagine it's starting to get quite hot now in your neck of the woods.

Laura and I want to join if you do this run. We ran Espinoza Trail this past weekend. Our friend's Jeep, actually his wife, wasn't up for Sidewinder or Bronco Peak so we had to pass. We will drive down any time. Just let us know.

Damn man, 122 is hot! You need to get up here in the Sierras. Hi today was 87, low 59.

The rock art is what the local national military use to keep the "less than rocket surgeon intelligence" vehicle operators from driving on to the active aircraft runway that you can see to the right. These guys are not very bright, the simple matter of a fighter jet sitting on the runway is enough for me to know "don't cross now"

Thanks, but I will self report a one star reduction for ommitting the "d" at the end of "mountain bike" :cheesy:

True they both could be correct, but having lived there for three years I did in fact ride more than one location. Therefore, I used the proper abbreviation of "for example," rather than the oft-missused "that is," and I'll take my two stars (with the aforementioned star reduction based upon the use of improper tense) thank you!

Freakin lawyers. :naw:

:cheesy:

122 degrees?! :eek: And I thought it was hot in Vegas at 105 last week.

As we get closer to December and solidify our plans I'll let you know if I am able to drive down and when.

I'm taking the other star. You forgot to capitalize a proper name. :cheesy::cheesy:

this is definitely a trail i would prefer to run when things start to cool off. even then it can still be hot and dusty but, if we were to do it later on in the year, we'd love to make it happen. :yup:

Bumping this to the top to see if there is any interest to run it one day the week of Christmas (say between the 22nd to the 28th). We are starting to plan our trip and trying to decide between flying and driving.

So...anyone up to do this run that week?

Well don't make any plans. That's simple. ;)

It would be great to get a good group together for a run and lunch or dinner (read beer) afterwards.

I was excited till I watched the vid. My stock JKUR will be eaten alive by some of those obstacles. I might be down for running shotgun as a straggler lookin' to learn how to wheel. :D
