2nd Annual Spring Spiff and Fix Rally

Lytle Creek, California, April 18th ~ 20th, 2008

Applewhite “Dry” Forest Service Campground


It’s that time of year again! Spring is springing, and everyone is itchy to get out with their rigs. But the first trip is usually the “shakedown” trip to see *what has gone wrong now?*… let’s get it fixed before summer!

Got a new rig? Come learn about the systems! Take it on a short trip before trekking across the country and gain some knowledge and confidence on its (And YOUR abilities)

Last year we had a small gathering, and not much work got done, except fixing my awning that blew apart.. So…Let’s try again!

The idea here is for folks to bring their skills, or lack of them, and help each other with a nagging little problem in our rigs that we just don’t have the chops to fix on our own. If you can’t do it, another member can! It's a trading skills kinda thing. "You fix mine, I'll fix yours!"

You don’t have to have a problem OR a skill to come tho. Come to enjoy the weekend close to home in the urban sprawl known as LA.

ABOUT APPLEWHITE CAMPGROUND

Location: Off of the 15 freeway at Sierra/Lytle Creek road, just south of Devore, north of Fontana.

Take I-15 to Sierra exit, go north on Lytle Creek road through the little berg of Lytle Creek. It's about a mile past town on the right.

Extremely close to the LA area and very easy to get to. At the base of the San Bernardinos and Cajon Pass on the Inland Empire side. It is a non reservable DRY campground. There are water spigots, but you will need a water thief or tote to fill your tanks, There are flush toilets, but no showers.

GENERATORS ARE ALLOWED. Those with portables are encouraged to bring them as some tools may require AC for some repairs.

There are new hosts that don't charge for "extra" vehicles (We can tell you about that from last years rally when you come :-P)

Across the road is the Lytle Creek day use area where the stream is full, and I hear the fishing is good. Lots of fire roads to explore as well, Mormon Rocks, a unique area of huge formations pushed up by the earthquake fault and for the more hearty that like to drive, Big Bear and other areas are a long day trip away.

You will need to show up Thursday evening to have a spot for sure, Friday is good chances, and Saturday may be iffy for the best sites, but I have never seen it full, even in summer.

There are many double sites at $20 each nite, there are no rules saying a single can't take a double, and frankly, if you do, it will keep the large party groups away. Singles are $10. Most are level, all have some, if not complete shade and the usual amenities one would expect from a Forest Service site.

Friday traffic can be a drag, but isn't it everywhere down here?

The map shows, in red, the best routes to take on Friday nite to avoid the Vegas traffic. The black up the 15 is the "short Direct" way, but on Friday, it may be better to detour.

We did a pot luck on Saturday nite last year that turned out nicely. Lets do it again! There is a large common area we can use if we get a big group. Extra tables would be in order if it looks like it, otherwise, it's pretty casual.

Post here if you are considering coming, and if you your rig needs attention, post that too! One of our brilliant experts can speak up with an "I can do that!"

Jim and I will have to miss this rally, as we will be returning from Texas. We will be at the Bluebonnet Rally and then afterwards spending a few days in San Antonio.

Just can't fit all these fun rallies in. Have a great time.

Gina,
As usual, going to have to "play it by ear". Sounds like a good opportunity for a shake down before we take off for a hopefully 2 mo. trip. We had hoped to make Bandon again, but my niece is getting married that week-end in Claremont.
We were just talking about & looking @ pictures of Heartbar, but there's nothing wrong with Lytle Creek. It is definitely getting time to relieve the winter itchy-feet syndrome!

I think it is a most EXCELLENT way to make sure systems are tip top before you leave. Bring her down, you are off the hill.. thats the hardest part of your trek!

Heartbar doesn't open until May. Sigh. Or it would be on the "Top" of the list!
