I know man ... I drove all the way to Hollister too and was hella disappointed when the guy told me it's closed for the weekend. I ended up going to Carnegie. Here is the final result (it is white color not mud color .. lol) .... ended up winching myself 3 times in the same mud pit but made it thru 2 times out of 5 (will post the videos later)
I like Hollister WAY more than Carnegie because Hollister is like 1000 times bigger.
We definitely need to get together next time for sure! Let me know when you plan to go next time.
