    Hey Trent (hope your KP run is going well) - I might be interested in something on 8/18 although it might be a bit early for too much commitment. As you mention, Bill Moore is a great scenic trail and good for visitors, but I have already run it this year with Elephant Hill. Anyway, was thinking a possible alternative could be Bard Creek and Mt Democrat - both near Empire as well. I have never run these - thus the interest - and they seem pretty mellow but maybe scenic and combine together for a nice run. The MVUM lists these as . I understand if you are committed to Bill Moore, but just throwing out something to think about. 777.1 and 778.1 (and 778.2A spur) off county road 252 immediately south of Empire.

    I'll look into those. I'm not committed to Bill Moore, and suggestions are appreciated. Sometimes I do not know what I don't know regarding available trails around here. I wanted to put a suggested trail in my planning post to at least start the discussion. KP was great today.

    FWIW - last I was up at the lake - bugs were a nuisance. Not saying stay away - just FYI.

    I think we're going to run Argentine Pass on Aug 19 instead. My friend who joined the anniversary run (and camped in the truck camper) can go then, and I haven't run Argentine this year yet.

    Jim, I might have missed it, but is there a way for me to change the thread title?

    The OP (you, for this thread) should be able to edit the first post in the thread and change the title there. It should be reflected in the forum title list. Successive posts in the thread will show the title that was in place when the post was made - but those don't matter - you're looking for the main title.

    If you can't change the title of the first post, just tell me what you want and I can do it.

    I appear to only be able to change title of my post, but it doesn't affect thread title. Can you update thread title to something like August 19 - Argentine Pass ?

    Thanks

    Iím most likely in on this one! Trent, can you bring your CB antenna tuner?

    I think running McClellan afterwards would make it a great full day since it shares the first half of Argentine.

    I can bring the swr meter. Mclellan would be fun, but I am not sure if I'll have time. My guests head out Sunday evening, so we'll see about mclellan when we know how long we have left after Argentine.

    I definitely think Iíll be able to make it! I was originally planning on doing Wheeler lake on Friday but after being gone the last three weeks I canít justify taking off. Iíve wanted to run Argentine and McLellon for a while. I will likely run Mclelon after Argentine even if itís by myself.... might as well while Iím right there and I wonít be in a hurry afterwards. Maybe Chris will join me ;-)

    I'd like to run both, if my passengers have time. I did not get to run McLellon last year when I was at Argentine.
