Canell Plunge to Old State Road Climb2.53.2332000refill water in Kernville
or we can drive up and back on Saturday, we'll find a way to make it work
11
Old State Road Kernville to JO road climb1.51.612.53300KOM is some random not-fast dude, we could be faster. Refill water at FS station at summit
so our friend Allie has expressed doubts that she can make the ride.
12
JO to Wagy11.6111100steep rutted DH, water dropoff on Sawmill road (8 gallons)
I'm trying to get our Friend Karl, who lives in Bakersfield, to do the short loop with me
13
Sawmill Road Climb11.27.52300Not all the way back up to JO, just to Wagy cutoff
if we have 2 cars at the top, we'll need 3 for the short ride
14
Wagy > Rocky Gulch > Dutch1.72122500turnoff at 1.2 miles into Wagy, same water stop at Sawmill road
unless there are paid shuttle options?
paid shuttle requires 6 people, and is really expensive
15
Kern Canyon Trail to Delanoga Br
2.52.7233300Water drop at Keyesville parking lot (6 gallons?), meet other here? PR was after racing, do not anticipate going much slower
anyway, bedtime. we'll talk later
