Red Rock area, Ca. 2013
February 15-17, 2013 Goler, Red Rock, Benson Cyn, Iron Cyn, Garlock, Randsburg & more
Just beginning to plan for next year's annual trip to this area. For some of you, it may be boring. For others, especially if their first time, it can be very rewarding. For me, it's often sad because so much of the history in this area is falling wayside to vandals and disrespectful riders and travelers who have little, if any, respect for our public lands. In any case, I have made it to this area every year in February (which began accidentally) since 1998.
So, here I go again, lol. It's open to anyone who would like to come along. Over the years, our group has had some great folks show up from as close to me as The Antelope Valley and as far away as Vegas and one person several years ago from Utah!
Again, I know for some people the area may be "old hat" but for me it has become tradition. It is essentially my back yard and I can get to numerous "get aways" within an hour or so from my home and dissapear from the daily grind as it were, often never seeing pavement for 3-4 days and nights. Sometimes there lots of wheelin' and sometimes there's just "chillin" at camp to simply unwind and recharge. There's a little of everything (accept trees and streams lol) for whatever kind of wheeling you like, and of course that whole "chillin" thing at an old cabin around the fire with a little something on the grill and a cold one in your hand, pondering what you will do or which direction in this vast desert you may head out to explore after breakfast the next morning. On these trips, I plan very little with the exception of the items I will need for the trip. That is, I seldom know what trail I want to follow or which direction I want to head until I am there. For me, it has become more about the adventure and exploring then the wheeling. But, again, there's something for everyone in this area.
Anyway...I will post up a map of the area with directions and locations, etc. later today.
This isn't a JEEP only trip. Again, all are welcome to join.
P.S. I will be running the 11 meter (CB) and will be on channel 12 and 18, although primarily 18. Just some FYI.
Thanks for reading!
