my martinez cabin tour is still Jan 29, meeting at 8a.

meetup location is the minit market at oracle (77) and golder ranch road.

(follow oracle north the town of catalina, the minit market is on the right hand side.)

from the meetup, we'll head out as a group for florence (simple route, 77 to 79 to florence). with a quick stop to top off fuel tanks/supplies in florence and then a few more miles to price road to air down and begin the run. (dirt road begins at 79 and price road)

so far this looks like its going to be a relatively dry winter, but if we do get a lot of snow/rains in the florence area we may have to reschedule. not for the cold, but the risk of flooding in box canyon.

you winter campers are hardcore.

near the meetup, only camping probably is the charouleau gap trail, don't know if camping is ok there. can't recall ever coming across any existing fire circles yet.

out at florence junction, there are a ton of places to camp. i don't have the FS map for that area yet, but you can probably use mapquest.com or such to follow price road and find the camping spots.

I hope to be there, my jeep needs some driveshaft work before I take it on a long trip, but if I can get this done I definitely want to go.

Most of the Charouleau gap trail is on forest service land so I believe camping would be fine.

At FJ there is a place on price road just before you get to box canyon that has a huge camping area with multiple fire pits.

Rob,

I was on another forum a couple of minutes ago and somebody posted that martinez is closed. You might wanna talk to the Forest Service guys or somebody in state trust land department or whatever to verify this information.
