I'm trying to get a herd together for a ride at Jawbone Feb 16/17 Everybody Welcome, We also really need those that know the area. As it turns out none of us have been there. Since I don't get off work untill sat morning, I won't be getting there untill sat afternoon. Hope to see you there.

Now if you want to come to my neck of the desert i can show you around. But you'd have to drive 1.5 hours further.

Lookin forward to ya, I will be camping, but as I'm a newbie to the area perhaps someone else can answer about hotels in the area. Sorry to all that I"m so un-informed about Jawbone, but I had the misconception that one of our group already knew the area like the back of his hand.. I wont mention his name cause Bman will get mad at me!

I will be there on sunday. By then you should have all the trails down. I have yet to ride anywhere by myself. Just showing up you can always find someone who knows where to go. By the way I'll tell you where to go. If only you could have watched the secret video taken of you perfecting you jumping. If anyone would like see it I would love to share it.

This time of year you should be able to find some snow patched singletrack in the higher elevations on the East side of Red Rock. Then from there drop down into Dove Springs on the berm infested crevice trail(lookout for the nudist camp in the middle of nowhere!)..And the rollercoaster trail that parallels the Aquaduct from Red Rock to Jawbone canyons is always a blast... have fun boulder hopping on the goat trail single track over the rocky hills in that area.....sooo many hills to climb everywhere you look... stop me - I'm having moto flashbacks !
I would join you all, but I've already got the following weekend away from the wife and kids so I can race the Adelanto GP
Anyone going to Adelanto on the 23rd-24th, or know of any good riding around Adelanto ?

Looks like my request for a kitchen pass will be granted for next sunday! Yahoo! Bman, if you are going out on sunday maybe we could hook-up and follow one another to meet with Socal? Send me a PM with your contact info and we will discuss the details. I have to work on Monday so I will be coming home on Sunday night. Looks like a have a week for some needed maintenance on the blue beast! Looking forward to meeting you all.

With all the responses, This is getting better and better!.. Ok so
#1 Where do we meet?
#2 can someone get up there early enough to reserve an area big enough for our tribe?
#3 Once there, should we break up into 3 riding groups for different
skill levels and dust/vision control. We want this to be fun for everyone.
#4 All those going please send me a p/m confirming even if you already sent one and we will also exchange cell #s..
#5 Be sure to bring emergency contact info. (e.g) home # med info, ins info, a note from your mom. blah, blah, blah...
#6 Am I making this into somthing too complicated?

Jawbone is awesome. If you have a old 500 two stroke in the garage take to Jawbone. It has the biggest hill climbs I have ever seen.
Really fun trails everywhere. Ridge backs to sand washs. Rode to Dove springs Saturday but didn't know what or who to look for because pm's weren't read. Dove Springs has lot of play areas. But when you stay in Jawbone you get to watch these nutty guys climb monster hills all day. I wish I could have stayed longer but sh t happens.
Jawbone is a great ride place to ride. So big that it seems to go on for ever. Check it out if you get a chance.

My wife called you a wimp for the no show. I stuck up for you and your wimpy shoulder. Get well soon.
