Talking The rocks are calling- may 4th weekend

Hey everybody! Had a huge turn out this past weekend... Now it's time for some really fun stuff! CALICO !

The address to the ghost town is 36600 Ghost Town Road Yermo, CA 92398. To get to camp, you will pass the huge cowboy that sits out in front of the actual Ghost town and go 100 yards or so. Doran Scenic Rd is on the left. The plan is to camp off Doran Scenic Rd before you go around the bend to the Gatekeeper. We'll run Doran, Odessa, Wall Street, and as time permits, some exploring.

If you want to come out Saturday, we'll leave camp for the trails around 9:30am. It's going to be hot. Bring lots of water! And if everyone can bring some wood, that'd be great.

Parts of Calico are no joke! You should have tow points front and rear and anyone that has a strap, bring it. I have one, but mine shouldn't be the only one on the trail. I'm hoping there's at least one or two others who have experience like myself who want to go. My regular posse can't make it this time

Ideally, 33's and at least 1 locker makes things easier..if you don't have that, and are running "stockier", no problem..you'll probably just require some help in a couple places. You do want to have some armor, or risk some possible body damage.

Look for my yellow happy face flag. I'm a white TJ. American Flag flying driver with a My Jeep Rocks windshield banner.

CB- Ch 4. I don't get cell service once out in the canyon.

Who's in? When you post you're coming, please post your arrival day/time.

Post on MJR please if you're interetsed! http://www.myjeeprocks.com/

Hey everybody! A few of you got warmed up this past weekend in HV. Now it's time for some really fun stuff! CALICO !

The address to the ghost town is 36600 Ghost Town Road Yermo, CA 92398. To get to camp, you will pass the huge cowboy that sits out in front of the actual Ghost town and go 100 yards or so. Doran Scenic Rd is on the left. The plan is to camp off Doran Scenic Rd before you go around the bend to the Gatekeeper. We'll run Doran, Odessa, Wall Street, and as time permits, some exploring.

The plan for Friday is a night run, so if you're coming Friday, try and get there in time for it!!

If you want to come out Saturday, we'll leave camp for the trails around 9:30am. It's going to be hot. Bring lots of water! And if everyone camping can bring some wood, that'd be great.


Ideally, 33's and at least 1 locker makes things easier..if you don't have that, and are running "stockier", no problem..you'll probably just require some help in a couple places. You do want to have some armor, (sliders) or risk some possible body damage.

Look for my yellow happy face flag. I'm a white TJ. American Flag flying driver with a My Jeep Rocks windshield banner.

CB- Ch 4. ( I don't get cell service once out in the canyon.)

THE LIST:

1.) I H8RDS- Lorie ***Friday @ approx 6:00-630pm ish

2.) RadarRob2012 & Jess and Boyfriend *** Friday

3.) Jerry97tj *** Saturday

4.) Jerry97tj friend #1 ***Saturday

5.) Jerry97tj friend #2 ***Saturday

6.) JK08- Danny *** Saturday plus possible friends

7.) donbadabon *** Saturday

8.) BRANDONT ***Saturday

9.) Marinelj*** Saturday and his wife

10.) toycrawler5481 ***Friday----possible buddy in tow

11.) Ross and Lisa ***Friday

12.) Quantumracer-Dan and Jacque ***Friday

13.) XMRacer ***Friday

14.) XMRacer's buddy ***Friday

15.) Bear..Wrangler *** Trying for Friday night

It's going to be an epic weekend!

I will not be there. I have to leave the trail on Saturday no later than 3pm and don't want to "hinder" the rest of the group. Looking forward to the next trip!!
