Exclamation Weekend Campout.... or Come find Me.... LOL

Hey all,
Just a thought…… I will be going to Lytle creek for a weekend camp out next weekend (The 12th thru the 14th). I was speaking to the Rangers and they seem to think that the roads are pretty hammered but with a skilled driver and capable vehicle it can be traversed. If you are interested in getting your X a little dirty for the whole weekend or part of it… Let me know, I was given the trail map (well, was told where to download it anyway) and will share it or set up a meet up to get a small convoy going.

All,
Just a late trip report...

So we got out to the Range at the end of Lytle creek road, and aired down. Saw no one... until we were about 200 yards down the road. I looked over my shoulder and saw a guy standing by a truck about 50 years off the road and he looked to be stuck, I called an all halt to our small convoy and walked out to him. It gets better, He, his wife and their new born had been stuck out there for about 12 hours. It was a 2x frontier we pulled them out and sent them on their way. On we traveled, the road seemed much worse than I remembered very rutted and rough. we got another 1/2 mile down the road and a Toyota land cruiser was stuck sideways on the road. a dude and his girlfriend were high centered, so we pulled him out and sent him down the road.
The rest of the way was real rough and washed out, but ultimately was passable if you have some experience off roading and spotting for others. We made it to the Flats and set up camp. The views were stunning Show in the high elevations and green as far as the eye can see. It was super green much greener than I have seen it in the past 5 years. We did run up to the Baldy gate and thats where the road got really bad. however we were able to navigate it. Camped friday night and Saturday one of our convoy had to leave so we sent 2 vehicles out with him to ensure he made it out. I spent the day napping in my hammock... which was much needed. The other vehicles came back and it seems that they took a brief exploration across the creek headed toward Fall camp and The lifted RAM truck, well didn't make it, chewing up his passenger side. they pulled him out and got him back to the hard ball, then returned to the flats.
The good news is that with all the rains fires were ok and there was a ton of local wood to burn. Will make this run again... Hopefully soon!

Geeze man... how bad can a road be rutted out? Any pics? Sounds like it was eating vehicles

Sounds like you were meant to be there by some kind of higher power. Lots of people to help out and a good weekend of off roading and camping. Good to hear. Post pictures if you have them!

It was only really bad at the top, on the way to the Baldy gate. I think the majority of the issue was lack of experience and getting in over their head without a buddy or the tools to get themselves out of trouble.

Yeah, sometimes in life you get to be the tool that the cosmos uses to set things back in motion. I was glad to be the tool...... LOL
