San Diego Area

Looking to hook up with some beginning to intermediate off-roaders in the San Diego area.

I am a newb to jeeping but not to common sense. I bought a jeep to try, and if I like it I will buy another and give this one to my daughter.

I am truly a quick learner and looking for other beginners or some old salt that is just willing to share the wisdom of their experience.

I would like to go jeeping at least once a month and of course more during the learning stages.

Currently, fire roads are all I have found around hear and a few construction areas.

What I am proposing is that all the way south newbs UNITE... if we can find some old salts to come along we can all learn faster. But I say lets get this thing rolling...

WHO IS WITH ME....?

Current jeep is

88 YJ
31x10.5.15 BFG ATs
I6 258 carbed
Pretty good condition but I am replacing all the parts that should have been replaced ages ago. (Hoses/clamps/Top etc...)
(The jeep sat for 3 years so I'm shaking out all the cobwebs...)

well, depends on where you live ....but for the most part, ANZA (especially the easier trails) are just a day trip away....

here's some pics of a friend's recent trip (yes, that's a VOLKSWAGEN, lol)

Well let me get all my squirting fluids under control and we can get going.

I am very adventurous but I fear my jeep would crumble under what I want to do. The problem is, this is not the jeep I will be building up. So I want to start slow and see what she can do.

Somebody pick a decent trail and set a date.

17th is my daughters 16th birthday.

I need to get her out of the house until 2pm (Suprise party)

So... if it was an early morning thing I could do it.

Either that or that Sunday would be good as well.

I might be down. Have you guys checked out that justruns club I linked above? They have maps to a lot of the local trails. They are a friendly bunch and very eager to help newbs. That is where I initially learned a lot.

John.
