Too much beer just makes me have to get up 3-4 times to pee after I go to bed. I might just bring some single-malt Scotch with me so that won't be a problem.

Sweet Deal!!! You know I'll bring some too! And Pacifico and Land Shark and Bushmills...

I still have to go to Unlimited's house and help him drink his... Been there twice and didn't drink any either time. Brian, the next time you see me, whack me upside the head will ya? What's wrong with me?!

We should change the thread title to "Lets get the wheelin' outta the way so we can drink in the desert get together!"

Sshhh don't tell anyone but I have my wife make me a chocolate malt a couple times a week when we're watching TV at night. Maybe that's why I'm starting to get fat in my old age. They are just one of my weaknesses.

Trail Heads Up...

Guys, if you plan on wheeling in SoCal you need this book!



Mr Wells and his associates were kind enough to explore these areas and compile them into a nice, glove box size book. How the hell do I get a Job like that?

Anyway, here are a few maps of the trails in the area where we will be.

Thanks for posting the maps Chris. I drew on one to show where the camp ground is in relation to the trails. I also marked in what I'm thinking will be the runs we go on. At this point the runs are open for discussion. If we do the Friday night run I marked, it will be limited to modified vehicles only. My hope is that we can go down the Diablo drop-off, cruse through Sandstone canyon and then come back up the drop off. A friend of mine says it's doable, but the drop-off is really sandy at the top so it might be a bit of a problem in a non-lifted Jeep. I'd like to go down there one of these weekends to pre-run it and check it out.

No problem Brian! That looks like a blast!

Here is a map tiny and I got from a couple of Park Rangers which shows the whole park.



Here is also a topo map:

Chris' or Brian, when I map this out the program wants me to take the 215/15 to just south of Temecula and 79 east to Anza Borrego. Do you guy think it would faster to go through Indio and south on 86 and west on 78? I will be coming down the 15 from the high desert to avoid all the towns/freeways coming down the 5.

Hey 4 Point its probably easier and shorter going through Indio if your going through the High Desert. Just jump on the 10 east from the 215. Ya taking 395 down?

Wow... I dunno Pointy. I've only ever gone down 79 to get there. Just looking at the map, it kinda looks like the 86/78 route is a little longer.

It is by about 30 miles but some times that can be recovered by staying out of the city traffic. Its 460 miles from home to Anza Borrego.

I would take the I15/I215 to the Hwy79 (south) to S2. There is not much city traffic that needs to be avoided. You'll hit about 5 miles worth of city when you get off the I15, then it will be pretty open to the S2. I doubt that you'll hit much traffic at all. Actually, traffic will be a lot worse on the I10 from the 15 to Indio. Fridays are always bad on the 10. People going to the river...

Thanks, I didn't figure the river rats in. I used to encounter those guys on the 40 when I was working in Bullhead.

This is gonna be fun. But also a little scary. I hear there is a good chance we could actually witness a sighting of the Borrego Beast!

This creature is believed to be a direct relative of Bigfoot and the Yeti and makes its home in the many sandstone crevasses in the park.

Definitive new proof of the Borrego Beast!

This photo was taken by someone who wishes to remain anonymous. It shows to clearest picture yet of the Borrego Beast.




Fascinating!

Hmm... I seem to remember there being a JK on the trail the last time we went through that looked pretty stock...

Here's the squeeze with Unlimited's Rig smack dab in the middle:



tiny's rig in the squeeze:



Unlimited helping a hopped up YJ going through the squeeze (this is the other side):



Here is what looked to be a fairly stock JK Rubicon that ran that same trail the day we did:

The folks on the East Coast are planning a run at Rausch Creek the same weekend... I told them it would be cool if we could call them "sister" runs! 'Should be a hoot! I plan to take a big piece of poster paper with a "hello" to our east coast members and have everyone pose for a pic to post in their thread!

I added our runs to the calendar BTW!

Tiny, Cain, and I preran a few parts of the trails we will be doing for the M&G today. We had a blast! We also checked out the campground. Friday's night run will include a trip to a 1,500 foot deep mud cave that we found today.


Bring a flashlight!

Yup, we sure did. We all had a great time. We mapped out the camp ground, ventured back into mud caves and ran one of the trails to see how difficult it would be to run up the drop off as apposed to down it. We are going to be running that particular trail in reverse in order to cut down on driving time back to camp and will be able to see and do a little more while out there. First we all drove down it, then Unlimited drove up while aired up and connected with no issue.

Here's the camp site:







Ample room and 8 persons allowed on each site. There are trailer hook-ups on either side with a tent space in the middle. Fire rings all around and nice flat areas for the tents. A really nice choice made by Unlimited and his wife.

Spelunking: That's right kiddies, if you dig big underground caves, have we got a treat for you. "Welcome to my underground lair!" MUAHAHAHAH!







Like UL said, bring a flashlight. These things are so freakin' cool!

The landscape: I don't know why they call this place the "badlands"... It's gorgeous!
