Jeff - You gonna be cleaning the inside of that thing for a while?

Can't wait for the pics!
Let's just say that all the oil was picked up. I think the fine for stealing sand is less than for an Exxon Valdez.

I'm going to go out on a limb by guessing that the TJ with "Go Prepared" splashed across the windshield had some wet feet.

The day got started off in good form, and on time. Met up in Ramona then headed straight to Borrego Springs and Coyote Canyon. It's been a long time since I had been there, well over a year. In that time the climbs have gotten a little more challenging than they had been but still nothing to stop any 4WD with decent tires. The water at third crossing is just about as deep as it always is.

When it got to be lunch time we decided that since we were so close to Borrego Springs we would go there for food, rather than have stale peanut butter sandwiches. Turns out the main taco shop in town had been invaded by several groups totaling approximately 24,675,234 motorcycles. Lucky for us they were all about done and the place had food left.

After that we did a little exploring and the next stop was at Fonts Point; a nice overlook facing about southeast with some impressive drop offs.

Next we headed overland to Ocatillo Wells enroute to Fish Creek and Diablo Drop Off.

There was a little adventure at Ocatillo when I had a 5 qt jug of motor oil burst in the back seat. Let's just say that I will not be having any future problems with rust.

As time went on I was looking at my gas gauge wondering if it was fact or fiction but not worried because I was carrying a can full. By the time I got to the top of Diablo Drop off I was sputtering so took the few minutes to pour in 5 gallons.

Starting to get dark by now so time to head home. While going thru Julian Jimmy called me on the CB to ask if I needed gas. Since it is crazy expensive there and it is all downhill from there to Ramona I decided to skip it. Next station at Santa Ysabel was open but surely I can make it 12 more miles to Ramona. Nope. Ran out about two more miles after that. My can was empty, Steves was empty because he had sold some gas to a guy at Diablo drop off the last time we were there, several weeks before. So, back to Santa Ysabel for gas and humiliation. But any fair reader of this can clearly see that it’s Steve’s fault for not refilling his can and Jimmy’s fault for not insisting that I stop earlier.

In the end it all worked out and a good day was had by all. No breakdowns and aside from tightening some bolts when we were stopped for lunch no tools were needed all day. All I need to do is fill my entire tub floor with cat litter before the next run.

Nice write up jbolty it was a good for sure can't wait for next run

As for why you have oil in your tub you forgot to go into detail about not keeping your tires on the ground, as I have said in b4 jeeps were meant fly not to land. Next time straps on a loose spare tire at least hehe

I don't see how you could come to any other conclusion.

I was surprised at how late you all stayed out. Turned out to be a long one.

We were planning to come back up over Oreflame before dark but missed it by about 45 minutes. I always forget how far a drive it is out and back.

One thing of note is there was a marked increase in horsepower from adding that Borla header. Hill climbs on the roads were definately easier and since nothing else has changed that would have to be the reason.

This is a cool looking run. Planning on doing something like this this weekend. What's the best map for these trails? Haven't been out there in almost 15 years.
