Yeah, I've been planning for every day in the last 2 weeks of great weather and something has come up every single day. I've got everything packed up, just need to load the guns in the truck and go... Now we've got what looks like 2 good days of rain ahead, if weather.com is correct...

Default More specifics

We went to Panoche today, had a grewat time until the freezing rain started. Is there a particular spot where you like to shoot or do you just find an area you like. We saw one spot by the fist gate and it looks like a fair amount of shooting has been done there. We drove down the road a ways and went through a second gate and saw a sign that said we were leaving public land so we turned around. Should we have kept going? Any details or specifics you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

It snowed up there last night, and will probably snow again tonight or in the morning. I'd like to see Panoche covered with snow.

Growing up in Santa Clara, I used to love seeing Hamilton covered with snow.
Remakably, I never went into the Santa Cruz mountains when they got snow.

My GPS showed elevations of 1800 to about 2200 feet when I was there last, that's pretty low snow.

Down here in SoCal the snow level is supposed to be about 300-4000 this weekend. That's pretty low for here, though it does occassionaly go lower.

I've got some good old pictures at Lytle Creek snow at about 2000-2500 feet.

I remember that storm, I was in 5th grade. Got a three day detention for hitting Ms Furduto when I planned on hitting Robbie Welin with a snowball.
(Hey, we didn't get much practice at 92 foot elevation)

Weather looks real promising for PH, says it will be in the low 70's!
I think I just might make the run, anyone else?

A bunch of us are going to be up there this weekend. Maybe we'll see you! If you see a group of people, ask if they're from calguns.

Dont mean to hijack your thread here.. but does anyone have any GPS coordinates to the shooting areas in the clear creek area? I am aware of a couple spots but believe they are actually outside of the "official" blm land perimeter. We have been shooting in some of these spots for more than 10 years and want to make sure we're on public land vs. private property.

Any GPS maps, aerial views, or other info is much appreciated. Thanks in advance... E

Are you talking about the east side of the area, over above Idria? If so, PM me. I can make you hip to some data.

Id call for sure before going out. The weather has had its way with the roads and its been under a temp. closure since feb. 27th. I like the rain because it keeps the dust down but the mud is downright nasty to get off after its dried (both truck and clothes/gear).

Tannerite sounds damn good up there... we easily light off a couple of cases when we're there. The echo is sweet.

sent you a pm. I am indeed talking about the area above idria.. having to drive thru the town to get there. The spot we normally camp at is right down the road from the first blm gate on that side of the property. There is a large parking area, abandonded car, and large hill climb for bikes/quads on the right side of the road. The left side has a bunch of smaller camping areas that look into a cool valley, but no safe backstop to shoot against.

if you drive a truck, you won't get stuck unless you are an idiot. The roads are currently fine for 4x4's.
