Went out to calico last weekend. Doran; up and down, Odessa and helped a couple of rigs down the gate keeper. We skipped wall street, but a bunch of us are camping and wheeling there again on the weekend of the 18th if anyone is interested. Should be a good time.

HOOYAH!!!
Dan

I did one of these last minute trips on Saturday. Took four pics because it was just two of us and I was leading most of the time.

That would suck, but wheelin beats sitting at home.

I'm heading up to big bear for the weekend. Should be 9 of us. I know jeep jamboree is going on this weekend, but I don't care......I gotta wheel!

HOOYAH!!!

Hey Dan if you see a good spot for me to park my toy hauler up there in BB on the 9th let me know where it's at. This weekend I'm probably going up to Tuttle Creek near Lone Pine. Was thinking BB would probably be jam packed for Memorial.

The county closed the area where I liked to wheel "To keep the dust down". bull****. It's a water shed area behind a dam on New River. there's no dust. It's always muddy back there.

Gary,

I thought the same thing on the weekend of jeep jamboree, but we didn't see more than four or five other rigs the whole weekend. Of course we didn't go to gold mountain, or run John bull, so they might have been there. I will keep an eye out for ya. The equestrian camping area has a ton of room for the hauler. I think it's on 3N16, but I will confirm for ya this weekend.

My only concern is dragging it down a long ruff dirt road to get it to a spot.

Hungry Valley Saturday.

My son and I are planning on hitting Hungry Valley Saturday. Don't know what time yet... I just added gears, trac-loc and disco's to my new-to-me '89 Wrangler and my son and I are going to test in the play area and hit the easier stuff to get a feel for this thing. My 14 year old is jonezin to drive also so I'll let him take the wheel. Anyone wants to join in is welcome. We might bring our mountain bikes and see what else we can break. (brake BRAKE! :-O) I hope to have the mirrors relocated by then so we can go doorless.

Tony

I've only come into that area via 3N14 which starts on the north side of the lake. I'm sure there is somewhere in that sleepy little town you can leave your rig. 3N14 is a little rough, but I towed the LJ on it with my Mercedes and it did great. I just took my time....no problems.

We changed our plans. Forecast low of 31 Friday and something like 38 on Saturday. Too cold for us to camp. We're going to hit the Miller run.

Yeah the wind was blowing pretty good up here in the desert out of the north the last couple of days, bringing in some cooler temps. I imagine it'll be just as cool over near Gorman? Have a good time over there.
