I work a block away from Pier St. entrance,going back to 92ish the creek you cross used to follow the levee and exit to the ocean just south of the last house on the strand,the storm surges pushed the creek up against the dunes and its stayed there since. At one point I crossed the creek in my 76
4x4 burb with a 6' lift and 38`s,I hit the creek,dropped off the side and the water was almost half way up the doors,a car would have been pushed ou tto sea easily regardless of your timing. They didnt close the beach in those days it was a "if ya got the nads go for it "till trucks started washing out in the surf line and became environmentally uncool a well as a few killed with tow rope or winch cable gilloutenes attempting to recover the vehicle. Heck back then you could drive to the Devils slide which was some 13 miles south of the entrance,now its what 3 miles of shore line? if you ever wanna take a trip back in time see if the old city hall on Bello st is still open as a visitor center and top in,lots of pics of the old tent cities,red light district,storm pics and the like.

Scooter, your the first person in a few decades that has mentioned devils slide. I still have the "Bigfoot" 1977 F-250 with 44's that I used to take up the slide. I rented paddles, uncorked my headers and slammed that hill! I had wind wings open on truck which acted like two funnels and put 8" of sand in cab.. but all in the name of fun. I have asked folks about that area.. they have no idea what I am talking about as if it were thirty five years past or something!!
It has been closed now by tree huggers for over 20 years I guess. They closed that beach so fast it was unbelievable.. basically on a whim....the day before! The water in the river shapeshifted the sands while we were there.

I figured worse case scenario would be throwing a rope, dragging wire rope from winch, then a pendulum across the current off anchored truck whichever/whatever it would take to get out. Just like any other swift water rescue we have dealt with.. just a little bigger.

We are going back over within the next month.. hopefully a little (light) rain will really make it a party zone. We go through the early week when the sand is clean and clear of flesh gates..er, oops, I mean people..

You want to go out with us.. PM me I will get in touch when we get close. I have a friend in Nipomo with a ranch and tons of firewood thats also available. he has an 05 Rubi that he loves to take out. ...circle the wagons and have a fire... we dooooooo have some fun
laterz

I live in the High Desert, and it's not much of a desert right now.. It looks for like a samp because everything is still flooded. We had no school on Friday because they closed it due to the weather.

I know that high desert area pretty well . from Ridgecrest/Trona down into redrock over into jawbone, Kelso up the Piutes all the way down through Cal City past Lancaster/ Palmdale area. All through the Mojave area also. Then back up around the mountains toward Cache creek near Tehachapi farther over towards Bean canyon. I grew up with motorbikes ,camping out among the critters and mesquite brush. Now it has become even more expansive.. Tahoe, to lower Sierras ...Coyote, Ducey, all up and arounf the Rockhouse Basin, Domeland wildrness area. On goes the story on rides the trails.

Give it a few days on the DG ( decomposed granite) it will dry up, give you grip and the party continues.

I never liked going to Pismo to wheel. I don't find it fun to have to be on the lookout for all the idiots that go there as well. I miss going off road been way to long since I got laid off and haven't had a chance to toss money at the jeep. Last time it rained this much I was living in San Diego and went out to Borrego Springs and had a blast with my truck. Always a fun time when you shouldn't cross water because its to deep and flowing to fast.

I grew up in So cal myself,raced desert a bit but mosty just riding the likes of Hi Vista,Red Rock, Kelso Valley,Red Mtn etc. Things sure have changed since then with all the closed areas. Did Saline Valley Rd/area with 4 other Jeeps and Diesel RHD FJ40,done lots of Big trallie explorin past few years in DV, did Gohler Wash,Barker Ranch on a Ducati Elefant and a buddy on 04 BMW GS ADV 1150. Also hit above Fresno frequently for fishing and some kayaking/fishing/wheelin etc. I wanna say your Bigfoot truck sound familiar,but hell anymore I cant remember my own phone number ya know. If you have any interest in spring time runs to DV let me know. Curiuous where abouts in Ca you are.

Holy crap! I thought I was the only Santa Maria Jeep here! Everytime I mention this place to someone around town driving a jeep, they haven't a clue! Nice to know I'm not the only one here...

I'm surprised by that being that there are a couple nice rigs right around my house but I haven't pulled my jeep out of my inlaws backyard to bring it over here will be doing it soon. At least Ill have a spot to work on her. What part of Santa Maria are you in?

Im in Bako.. about 2 hours east of Pismo. we are going to try and get over there later in feb. To get there after a light rain would be about as good as it gets. The sand was perfect! The sun was out, light breeze and no flesh gates. Perfect!
