Location

Rendezvous @ Trailhead/Campsite

I cannot get off Friday and will get out early Saturday to lead the run. Need someone to take the club signs to guide others to the campsite. 26.7 miles north of Pilot at Kramer Junction take Trona Road for only 1.3 mile, go right on side road for 1.0 mile to camp site. Google map this 

35.387161,-117.591219

zoom in and park where those 3 trucks are. If taken continue east to nearest available camp site.

Forecast is cool, bring layers and firewood.

Don't forget this is dry camping; if you don't bring it, you won't have it.
