Digging this thread up from the grave. Just moved to Ventura at the beginning of the month. Anyone around this area hit trails on a regular basis or are there any 4x4 clubs that are active around here?

Next weekend sounds great. Let me know where the meet up point is, or we can drive up convoy style.

Most of my upgrades are listed in my profile, next up on the list will be fenders and under armor but my rig is pretty capable as it sits

I'm currently Navy and work at point Mugu, unfortunately the command I work for thinks they are important and we don't get every other Friday off. It isn't big, grey, and floating so it is still better than the alternative.

Im at PH..I used to be an airdale; parked jets on an aircraft carrier back in the day....And being a GS now, I chose to have Mondays off b/c I need to recoup and clean after my wheeling weekends. She's my daily driver..and I only wheel with my top down and doors off..

I took some leave and I'm actually off Thursday and Friday..and then Mon-wed the following week after the big weekend. Just felt like it ya know? So, I'm leaving this Thursday morning around 0700 which will put me there around 1030. Meeting one of my fav wheeling buddies along the way off the 134E. Meeting a few others out there before noon. Let me know if you need directions and what time you'd like us to look for you. I'm assuming you can't leave Thursday AM ;(

Have you been to Calico?

I've never been out to Calico, used to live in San Diego but got shipped up to WA last year. The wife and I have hit up big bear a few times back then before I put the HP30, lockers, and 35" on the rig.

I wouldn't be able to make it up till later Friday or Saturday morning. What time are the festivities starting sat? Are you staying at a hotel out there or camping? I def will make it out for at least a day of wheeling, maybe two, depends on if I bring the wife and dogs or leave them at home.

You're going to LOVE Calico! We're camping in Mule Canyon.

Ghost Town address: 36600 Ghost Town Road Yermo, CA 92398. Coming in from the 15 N, exit Ghost Town Exit, then go left. Get gas there if you need it...you'll go up the road for a few miles. You'll pass the entrance to Calico Ghost Town on the left. You'll see a huge cardboard cowboy. Pass him. 100 yards up the road on the left is Doran Scenic Drive..there's a ranger sign encased in glass with maps inside..Pass that and Mule Canyon is another 3 miles or so up the road on the left. It has a glass encased sign as well..Hit the dirt road and just go straight..you won't be able to miss us...there's a lot of us. If you're driving a RV and towing the jeep, there's plenty of room for you, no worries.

If you're coming Saturday morning, there's a meet and greet at 0800 at Peggy Sue's Diner ( I don't know if I'm going to hassle with that b/c I'll have been there already for a couple days in a tent; and would need to air up etc.) So I may pass on that, but if you let me know when you're coming, I'll keep an eye out for ya. You can't really miss my rig; white TJ, license plate I H8RDS, American flag flying driver and MyJeepRocks windshield banner. Ch 4 CB.

There's going to be lots of wives, kids and dogs..feel free to bring all of yours!

Advice on getting here: If you're leaving after work Friday, go 5 south, 14 N, PearBlossom, (heading towards Little Rock/Victorville), 138/18 to 15N. If you're coming Saturday morning, I'd go 101S, 134E, 210E, 15N. If you want to chat, I'll shoot you my cell...Calico is Well Worth the drive! If you liked Big Bear, you'll dig Calico. Just wait!
