Ari, how secure is your top, or your neighborhood? all those pockets full of junk just invites thieves to reach in and grab it. Get a plain ole cover if your seats are worn out.

Just in case anyone wants to come out this Saturday...

How to Get There From San Diego Area: Go east on Interstate 8 about 100 miles, almost to El Centro. Take the Dunaway Rd exit, go north (left) to S-80 and turn right (east). Go 4.2 miles to Huff Road and turn left (north). The sign at Huff Rd. is somewhat obscured by trees, so watch closely for it. A power line runs along Huff Rd. Follow Huff Rd. 6.2 miles to Wheeler Road (dirt road) and turn left. You are now going west. Follow Wheeler Road about 7 miles, past a couple of forks to the left. You will enter the Superstition Mtn OHV area after about 2 miles. After about five miles the road will turn to the right and you will be heading approximately due north. The main camping/registration area will be on your left.
Updated Directions as of 1/14/03 How to Get There >From L.A., and Points North: From I-10, just east of Indio, take 86S expressway south. This newly opened route bypasses the center of Indio and Coachella, much faster and nicer with a tow, and now gives a straight shot all the way to Westmorland.
Continue on 86 south to Westmorland. At the stop sign (S. Center), turn right (south). This becomes Forrester Road. Take Forrester Road out of town just past Carter Road to Imler Road. Turn right (west) on Imler Road. Imler will veer south and become Huff Road. There are two dips in the road a mile or so apart. Just over the hill following the second dip is Wheeler Road. Turn right and follow the road next to the hills to camp, about 7 miles.
GPS Co-ordinates for base camp: 32.55.371N 115.48.659W - BASE CAMP

Well how secure is a soft top? Not very.

How secure is the naval housing? Well with a patrol passing the center lot that I park in (which has like 100 other cars surrounding me that aren't guarded) every few minutes I would like to believe secure enough lol. No one has stolen anything yet, the bums don't even come in here. Every house has like 4 buttons that when one of em is pressed MPs show up in like 3 mins supposedly. So yeah lol does that work?

Just as a heads-up, some areas have made pallets illegal to use for firewood or to even gring them into BLM lands.

One reason being is that some folks would break them up or burn them whole & leave the nails everywhere for your expensive tires to find.

Ever seen a firepit where ~40-50 pallets have been burned? Lots of nails get scattered & find their way into tires, feet etc.

I wonder why the government saw fit to install such overkill security and patrols in your housing area?lol must of been cause everyone is so lawful that you've got buttons everywhere and mp's a few minutes away is my guess. Only mp's i ever saw on my Marine Corps base were at the front gate off of I5, thankfully cause we would of got busted drinking all the time

I guess they are scared of all the homeless people, that or they are trying to make use of their budget so it don't get cut and no one told them to just stock up on MREs and not MPs.

Maybe the could use the money to make the internet in this place work right, it sucks.

You could start an iron mine with all the nails on fiesta island.

Pallets stink as firewood if whole, with all the air space they burn up in two minutes. If cut up properly they are just oak boards but it's a lot of work.

People are pigs. Just the other day some guy in a suit came out of the 7-11 downtown with a soda bottle, unscrewed the top and tossed it on the ground. I was happy to correct him using a couple of my favorite four letter words and he picked it up.

Steve and I met up yesterday to try and hammer out some trail plans. We have a couple options for the day run on Saturday. Do we want to split off and head north and end up near Ocotillo Wells or south and end up near Ocotillo? I forget the names of the 2 trails but I'm sure Steve will jump in and fill us in.

Friday - Set up camp. Steve will be leaving downtown around 4 and should be there fairly early. If we're up to it we can do a quick night run through Rodriguez Canyon. We may also go up Pinyon Mt to the entrance of the squeeze to let Josh check it out. It all depends on how tired people are.

Saturday - Pinyon Mt trail (squeeze, heart attack hill, etc) Depending on whether we go north or south will dictate the rest of the trails

Sunday - Mud caves, diablo dropoff?


As far as food goes we are going to do the breakfast and dinners as a group and lunch you're on your own. We will probably be on the trail somewhere during the lunch times anyway.

I hear you Jeff. I still see folks burning them whole all too often.

I was on my way out from JV recently & there was a full size truck on it's way in with 2 giant stacks of pallets headed to the lakebed. If the ranger catches up with 'em - that'll be an ugly ticket.

I know you are very conscientious and I would never expect you to be guilty of leaving a mess, but since alot of the public seem to think the desert is their own private dumping grounds, we have these types of idiots to deal with.

People just think someone else is going to pick up their trash then they wonder why areas get closed.

A few years ago I had to replace some of the old cedar boards on my roof. I saved the scraps and eventually took them to fiesta island for a bonfire. Some of the old pieces still had bits of tar paper stapled to them but I did not give it any thought. Once the fire got going those little pieces put out so much black smoke that it looked like a plane had crashed. Fortunatey it was getting dark so I did not get into trouble for it.

Jeff I think your chicken wing grease was the best fire additive ever. After our spontaneous night run through some trails it got cold and that grease was so hot, to bad it burns up so fast.
