Anza Moon run

September 22nd 2012

Description

Ever want to see:  The desert by full moon?

The swamp in the desert? 

The edge of the bombing range ? well then join us !

 

Let’s go!  Sept 22, Saturday.

Stock vehicles make this run ... pin stripping can occur in the swamp weeds/branches so wax it up.

 

Tow hooks are required for all club runs.  No joke. I don’t want to pull off any parts or have to crawl under your vehicle to find something to hook onto after you get stuck.

 

Meet at South San Clemente Carls' Jr. @ 4 pm  Christianitos off-ramp

 or meet at Sizzler in Ramona ~ 5:45 for dinner.  Last gas in Ramona.   

Continue east on 78 through Julian until scissors crossing then turn south onto S-2 until mile marker 51.3-ish where we turn into Canyon sin Nombre. prob about 8:34.

We will run north up sin Nombre then, east through Carrizo Creek to the bombing range end of the line and run back Carrizo wash to Tapiado wash

     average high 100  low 64                          historical 112/55

** AND the famed mud caves!!  ** bring your flashlights + head lamps for this  **

Then down Diablo wash into Fish Creek wash

We will turn up wash and dry-camp towards Sa -not at the campground. Bring some breakfast snacks so we can take a couple of hours in the cool morning to see and explore Sandstone Canyon. You'll like this - it is a special hidden place.  Don't forget liquids flashlights and some snacks.
