4th Semi Annual SoCal WF Meet n Greet

Hey there gang, it is time again to start planning the next Meet and Greet. The last couple of years we have gone to Anza Borrego in late March and had a blast. Generally, we arrive Friday afternoon and hangout, chat and get settled in. Saturday is the big wheeling day, Saturday night typically has been working out great as a pot luck dinner and sitting around the fire discussing the days events. And Sunday is set aside for a short run if time/interest is there.

So lets hear it everyone. What kind of interest do we have? What weekends work best for ya? If anyone has any suggestions for other destinations, feel free to let me know.

2009 So Cal WF Meet & Greet Run - March 27-29

2nd Annual So Cal WF Meet & Greet Run - March 26-28, 2010

Sounds like fun. If we're looking at the last weekend in March, that works for me, as well as probably any of the weekends in March. I'd be down for any of those trails in Anza Borrego.

I have not gone to the wind tunnels. Sounds interesting. I will look for info on that. I have been to the mud caves, they are pretty cool and fun to walk through. Keep the suggestions coming.

Hi all....we are in. We have spent a lot of time in AB, and not only will the wheeling be great, so will the weather and wildflowers. H2R...you should be ok, because of many options for go arounds if needed. Once the trip is planned, we should have more info on trail specifics.

My first trip thru AB was with a stock 93 YJ with 31s as the only upgrade. Till then, I had not done much more than trail driving and a couple of mud puddles. You should be fine. You may need a tug in a place or two, but that is fine. With the right spotter and a light foot you should be fine.

Of course I do ask that your Jeep has a couple of basic items. Such as recovery points front and rear, CB Radio, fire extinguisher, a spare tire with decent tread, first aid kit etc. Basically the things you should be bringing on any type of off-road excursion.

If anyone has any questions or concearns, feel free to post up or PM me. This is looking like a great start to meeting new members.

Jeff

Sweet, getting bigger and bigger real fast. And women Jeepers are welcome and encouraged. We need someone to cook the food at camp... J/K, don't kill me. My wife will be along so you wont be the only woman. Would love to get a couple of women that want to wheel also.

So, I need to start planning things now. What is the popular choice for camping? Do we need flush toilets and showers with spigots and power supplies? Or will vault toilets be OK and bring our own water? I am fine with roughing it in primative campgrounds as long as we can enjoy a nice fire at night.

From past times at Anza, the really nice campsites with water/showers/flush toiltes etc, they had a lights out be quiet policy set for 10:00 pm. That did not settle to well with many members of the group as they wished to enjoy the cool evening with new freinds and chat into the wee hours. The sites that are more primative, are cheap or free on a first come first serve basis and we can be up and rowdy as late as we desire.

I'd say a campfire ring is a must. Preferably no curfew. I'm good with any kind of camping, but the campsites with at least vault toilets would probably be more inviting for the ladies.

vault toilets are a must at the least. My wife would freak if she had to piddle on the bare ground. The site we stayed at last year did not allow fires on bare ground and did not offer fire pits. But if we are willing to bring our own washing maching tub or other form of container of keep fire off the ground we are golden.

Hey Jeff,

Let me know as soon as you pick dates. I might be able to come down even if it's just for the day.

Alright gang, I have thought it through and since we have not had any immidiate protests against primative camping with only a vault toilte and bringing our own water for personal needs, I have decided to go with the same campground that we used last year for the Meet n Greet. It is free and first come first serve, but very large. We will need to bring some sort of fire containment unit to be legal, but that should be easy enough.

OK, the GPS coordinates for the camp site are:

33* 02.234N
116* 24.556W

The campsite is pretty close to the trail head and has no cerfew so we can talk into the night. Within the next couple of weeks I will start a roll call thread for whoever wishes to participate.

Jeff
