Looks like I'll be hitting the dirt at Plaster City and coming in the back way.
Do You just follow the tracks all the way up?

Due to work circumstances beyond my control I will not be able to make it. (Grrrr...) Spot 84 is available to next in line. I'm so disapointed. Sorry for the last minute notice.

Same here. All this rain is making me have to work when it's not raining just to attempt to catch up...... and not work today because of the rain.....
 
For those headed from San Diego or North headed south to get there....As of right now (2.21.19/1000 hrs) The 79 through Julian into the 78 down Banner grade is open without any chain requirements. It's snowing off and on right now through Julian. Obviously things can quickly change. If you want to go the long way through Ranchita into Borrego there are no restrictions. About the worst you will have to deal with is the "fun loving tourists" who will be sure to be driving that way to see the snow and are sure to get in crashes all along the way.

From corona/orange county the difference going through julian vs the long way is only 30 minutes. Definitely not worth it to me go head over the mountain for that.
