16TH ANNUAL EL PASOS MOUNTAIN RANGE CAMPING TRIP


Feb. 21-23 (Fri-Sun), 2014 Red Rock/Goler/El Paso Mountains area annual camping trip.

Doin' it again this year for the 16th year in a row! Nearly gave up this year, thus this last minute announcement.




Here's last year's trip, Feb. 2013:

https://www.facebook.com/hinlo.deser...1731094&type=3




If you're interested, just let me know. Requirements are fairly basic as there is terrain for all tastes and plenty of hiking as well. There WILL be some 4WD ONLY stuff I plan on going through. It can be cold~REALLY COLD~sometimes at night, often down to 10-15 degrees. However, I have had plenty of 30-40 degree overnight trips in there in Feb. as well. Daytime temps are usally fairly nice, often just plain beautiful while the sun is out.

Items needed (basics of course):

~Food/Water enough for you and your shotgun riders for each day you're planning to stay.

~Firewood-I usually bring quite a bit, but always ask others to please try to bring at least a small bundle or two because if we all contribute a little, then there of course is plenty for all of us to hang around the fire.

~blankets/tent/bedding/sleeping bags, etc. Although there are cabins in the area, over these last several years, vandals have done enough damage to make many of these un-inhabitable and no longer safe to sleep in. I have stayed in most every cabin in the area, some several times. I can no longer suggest staying in these with the exception of one. So be prepared to bring shelter in case we get some rain or snow. I have been there in both! It can be wonderful, as long as you can stay dry! lol.

~Communications-I recommend a CB and/or FRS. I will be on 11 meter C.B. on channel 18 (27.175 Mhz) for this trip, changing to channel 12 (27.105 Mhz) occasionally. There will be both CB and FRS among members of this trip AND we will mostly all be together. If there are enough folks on this trip, and some have plans to go one direction and others another for parts of the trip, we will be sure no less then two vehicles with some sort of radio communications are among each of the groups, etc. Simple and basic, I know. But, I just want to mention it in advance.


Anyway, I am looking forward to this annual get-a-way, seeing some old friends and maybe make some new ones! Happy New Year!

SO!
I too will be there, and may stay in either Goler gulch, or up at the entrance to the Talc mine road, Depends on road conditions.

I am now 2wd only, as sold my last 4x4 when i sold my truck in 2012. Sooo... if anyone can stand a gabby guy as a 2nd passenger, I would love to go out too.

This will probably be my rig, so that explains the good road conditions note;

Perhaps the idea of bringing the "Monster" horse trailer will be too much.....sooooo....how about the mini trailer with a bed, a sink, and lots of blankets!

Seriously, I talked to Dave, and will probably bring the pop-up trailer. IF I acn clear some of the obrtuctions, as it has only 8 inch wheels!!
So, think almost NO ground clearance in the rear, and not much under neath either! I took my small horse trailer last time, and while it was ok as far as being warm, it does not have any sleeping area, and the smell of horse is pretty strong at about midnight on....

So, from the previous trip...;







and what would be missing but an older shot of me high centered, and getting a little help from the friends...

I SO wanna get out there one of these days! I am hoping this Spring/Summer will perhaps finally be more forgiving time-wise for me then the previous several!

And one of the trips on my bucket list~Mojave Road! Been wanting to do this for some 13-15 years! Have planned 2-3 times, something always seemed to screw up the plans! One of these days, ONE of these days!

Meanwhile, really do hope you can make it again Jeff. Be good to catch up with you again.

I sure hope you get some free time soon, it's been a year since I saw you last. We will see how things work out Dave.

Stumbling through a few pics this morning and came upon this one. It's so simple, yet, it's one of my favorites from last year!

Well, BOSS, I would be willing to bet you have more then just the one winching upright under your belt, making it more likely to forget! LOL

I am getting itchy for the outing as it's (as usual) a long awaited and well deserved get-a-way.

I know you mentioned being way south nearing this trip, so won't pressure you. But, again, it would be good to see ya again!

Meanwhile, Happy travels my friend!

That would be my good friend Aaron. I actually haven't spoke with him for awhile but sent him a few messages via facebook. I don't have his number anymore as I lost all my old info having to replace a phone that would not backup. Hopefully, he will respond soon. I would love for him to come along this year. He hasn't been since the 2012 trip.

Keep me posted if ya can...
laterness!
