Those would be extremely difficult right now, but I'm down to go when the snow melts and it dries up. Also down for miller any time when it opens up, hopefully May 1st.

john Bull is the tough one. Ive done the other two. Not too bad. John bull can cause body damage. Its not for the feint of heart or mildly modded jeeps.

at a minimum everyone should get a front diff skid plate and good sliders. Rubi sliders are ok at best but i upgraded after seeing peoplebend then into the body.

There's snow on the ground right now is what I'm saying. Even gold mountain in the snow is not easy.

I think all those trails are good destinations, obviously the ones up in Big Bear are probably best for when the snow melts. Anza area is good. I have been to Ocotillo Wells a few times but it is not really great for Jeep trails.

Sundays are best for me through mid May. Next week 3/20-3/24 I am pretty much wide open if someone want to hit some trails.
