Nothing in the east bay, you can go down to Hollister there is an off road park there.

I made arrangements to go and take my nephew but the day before I sent in my registration, I had a change of heart. Glad I did because my work schedule has been crazy. And yeah, it's rather expensive but for folks that refuse to cook or pack cooking gear it's not bad for peace of mind.

Look closely at the intended route, its from one starting point to the other, its barely any of the Rubicon, save the $500 per person and go with a group that runs it yearly, there are quite a few.

Not because of US Parks & Rec? Not because of California Park Svc? Because of a group who runs the two entrance trails once a year? Really? So they are also why we have Moab and the Big Horns and the other public lands they run with a $500/plate dinners?

Indeed. I heard about the story at the club meeting tonight from some of the guys that were there. I also heard that alcohol was a major factor and hope that folks can use this as an example to keep their driving and partying separate.

Same here, wish Rachel a quick recovery. It's great how much support she has from friends, family, and off-road community. Hats off to the JJ crew and rescue crew for the quick response and recovery from the trail.
Will be looking for the next HAM class and get my license soon. CalStar member.

who are you to talk? They run the whole trail! If you go on the 5 or 4 day event the price isn't bad. You have all your food made for you and if you ever need assistance, you get it for free.

My prayers are out to Rachel as well. That was terrible news to hear. If you follow her on FB it sounds like she is doing much better! I encourage all of you to make a donation.

That's crazy, I just read the news report. Does anybody know why they veered off the trial? Did something break which caused them to veer or was the previously mentioned alcohol consumption which led to the accident?

I was told by a trail guide at the Jeepers Jamboree that she was attempting to let another vehicle by her, but had stopped on the loose edge of the trail. When she tried to move again the jeep slipped off the trail.

I attended the Jeep Jamboree this past weekend and could see where the fire was. It is nearly straight down at that location. Awful tragedy no matter how exactly it happened.
