Ron, Ron, Ron.

I know you like to stir the pot a bit, but... Calling me a Woodson local is going just a little, well, too far.

On the other hand, Woodson has always been a good place to train for Rubidoux.

Great day up on the mountain on saturday. Finally got the crucible. Frickin threw up after I got done, think I need more wide practice, LOL.


Awesome...

Claudioooooooooooooooooo! Good to see you're still out there. Dang, you must be near fifty now, aren't you, haha. Say hello to those that know me and be safe.

Any hot tips on finding the Out of Sight boulder area. I seem to be spacing out on finding this area.... Rain or shine I'd like to find it this weekend.

Out of Sight:
at the last switchback before the microwave towers (where road turns left), take a right on a pretty well beaten trail.
After about 200 yards the trail goes down along the east side of a big boulder (i.e. the boulder is at your left shoulder.)
Out of Sight faces north so you can't see it until you get to the base.

Gonamok - The County Planning Commission is some kind of thin crack testpiece BVB casually mentioned somewhere in one of these threads.
Being a dedicated mantle devotee, I'm not surprised you missed the reference! Where is BVB anyway. I'd still like to find that crack.

Thanks friend!

Adel, look for a tall thin grey haired dude who looks like he's there to climb. That should narrow it down a little.

Back on the south slope, but instead of pushing my trail farther west, i decided to head down into the southern basin and look at some of the hulking giants that lurk near the bottom of the south side. I recalled finding a natural break that accessed the basin thru some major league brush about 15 years ago, so i went in search of that passage. Jayzus was that a mistake. I fought through tangles of small trees and 8' tall scrub for a couple hours until i finally came upon a place clear enough to take off my pack and rest. I was probably halfway between the pipeline trail and the drainage bottom amidst huge boulders, but couldnt see or move in any direction. I was blasted and all shredded so i decided to just head back up, but couldnt find the trail i broke, so i had to cut a new trail uphill, overshot the pipeline and came out half dead at the terminator. Didnt get anything accomplished but had a dandy geezer epic.

Oh my Henny, havent they made a parking lot out of that roobeedoo place yet? Those boulders have valuable gravel potential.

Gonamok, IF you want a little help or geezeR company on one of these outings, PM me. I have much prior experience in chaparral. I'm 57 but still up for this kind of sh!t.

My oldest daughter will enter UCSD in the fall and I plan to show her around Mt. Woodson. I love that place. Perfect for ADD types like me and a nice hike for her.

Very nice Gunkie! My daughter just finished up her first year there at Muir. Great school...she even got a full time summer job working there as well as part time during the school year. Feel free to pm me and I can connect my daughter up with yours if you want any info for any reason. She's a little nerdy (loves John Green) and a linguistics major (just fyi).

Hawk, you're not going to bring your GOOD woodworking handsaw are ya? At least wait till you kink the blade before you bring the thing. I have a limb lopper blade that cuts fast if needed. We could explore tho.....If we do, I'm wearing my snake gaiters.

I'll try post up some pics I took, curious to see what they are. We were trout-fishing the West Fork down there last weekend.

That route called county planning commision could be the city planning commission just north of escondido.

Heh Hawk, i know that was tongue in cheek, cuz theres about a zillion rattlers per square mile everywhere in the east county, Mt Woodson included. Ive encountered more rattlers on woodson than i have anywhere else, easily 2 dozen or more since i started going there around 80. But none of them were menacing, they like to get the hell out of dodge if they can. Exception is if you startle one, but Ive avoided that by walking heavily and using a stick to poke around ahead of me when needed. Saw a baby rattler coiled up right in the middle of the road between the practice boulders this spring. In summer its only dusk that you need to be wary, being cold blooded, they dont come out until it cools off.
