Description

Will plan on leaving camp aroud 9- 9:30 Saturday morning. Location is trails, sand washes, canyons, mountains, dry creek beds. Should be no body damage, some desert pin striping. Usually no other vehicles or campers at this location.  Most tough areas have easy ways around.  There are areas for "extra credit" for those who like to break stuff.

I will come out early Fri afternoon and not leave until Sunday. For those early arrivals or late leavers we can wheel on Friday and Sunday.  Main event will be Saturday.

For those who do not want to camp, come Saturday morning and leave Saturday night.  184 miles from SJC including 6 miles of 5 mph washboard road going in. There is cell service in camp.  If you are running late or have a problem once you enter the dirt road, call 714 478 4636, and we will wait for you or come get you.
