Well now the subject is visiting in two days.
Looks like it will be a nice week out there.
Got the new tires on. Got the safety seal plug kit (thanks fred).
I also got some nice 7.5X7.5 usgs topo maps.
If you are interested in printing your own.....
Go to USGS here and type in the place.
Then double click the red marker (or make another red marker) and download the pdf.
Then print.
I noticed that REI had some inkjet paper that looks cool.
I don't have a color printer so I had Miller Blue Print do them for me for $7 a piece.
I got seven quads that cover the areas we are going to hit.
I always like looking at a good map......

Just need to get some groceries tomorrow and we are gonna hit the road.
I decided to break up the drive so it's easier on my son (and me :) )
So we'll head out tomorrow night and drive to junction or sonora and get there on Sunday.
I'll give a full trip report and pictures when I get back.

Hey Schroeder,

Have a great time!  Gotta admit though, I wish it was me going.  Will look forward to your report when you get back.  Me and the Mrs. might be out there later this month.

BTW...I've been to Guale 2 and it's awesome...great views of Rancherias and Mexico...good hiking too.
