Cool It's Calico Season!! Running Nov 1st- 3rd

Hey everybody!

Calico is a good time! Neat history, couple waterfalls and who doesn't want some Pucker Pass! I'm thinking a night run up Pucker this trip If ya'll are up to it!

**DIRECTIONS AND INFO:**

The address to the ghost town is 36600 Ghost Town Road Yermo, CA 92398.

TO GET TO OUR CAMP: Once you get to the actual Ghost Town with the big cowboy standing up in front of it, (36600 Ghost Town Road, Yermo), continue up the road maybe a couple hundred yards. Doran Scenic Rd is on the left, but hard to see the Doran sign itself. You’ll see the triangular looking ranger sign encased in glass. (see pic below) Make that left and keep going straight down the dirt road. You'll run right into us. We're going to camp off Doran Scenic Rd before you go around the bend to the Gatekeeper. There's plenty of room for RVs and tents. It's open canyon camping, no campsites..no civilization. It's dry camping. No facilities, water etc.

We'll run all the major trails; Odessa, Doran and Wall Street! Explore the Bismark mines and do West Phillips to Kramer's Arch as well..if we can make the time! It's pretty neat! I run through Sunday..usually leaving Kramers Arch for last.

I'm open to a Friday night run if ya'll want..up Doran and down Odessa...OR...Maybe up Odessa --Pucker Pass and down Phillips? It's a shorter route..

Saturday- Run up Odessa, down to the mines and over to Wall Street. On the way back, down Doran.


Sunday- Up to West Phillips; checking out Kramer's Arch and down Odessa.

If you want to come out Saturday, please be at camp and ready to roll by 930am.

**YOUR RIG SHOULD HAVE**: Tow points; front and rear, sliders, armor, be lifted and at least 31's..33's are better. Lockers are not required, but helpful in a couple spots. If you don't have them, no biggie. Worse case is you get a strap/winch.

Look for my rig - White TJ, pink windshield banner and American Flag flying driver. (someone stole my yellow happy face flag

CB- Ch 21 ( I don't get cell service once out in the canyon.)


EVERYBODY CAMPING, PLEASE BRING WOOD!!



Who wants some Calico pebbles?

Yay Gary!! Will this be your first trip out to Calico?

I'm stoked that you'd want to spend your anniversary with us! I'm pretty sure a few of my really close friends will be making this one as well. Bernie and Vanessa Glamp too. If you haven't met them yet, you're in for a treat. Just enough Zany and class. You're wife will love Vanessa!

I'll add ya to the list! I will get there Friday at approximately 630pm.

I told her my anniversery gift to her was to take her 4-wheeling. Boy was she excited. I have to bring the motorhome though, no tent camping for her.

Sweet! So a night run is in order And boy, what a deal you've given her LOL 2 times for her to choose in a 20 year time span

She should enjoy it out there at night...especially being in an RV...as we seem to have resident foxes who like to visit camp in the dead of night.

Calico never disappoints..I've led runs out there where there was zero to little carnage and then others that ended with snapped axles. All in a weekend's fun!

Did you want to be on the list to go? And if you plan on coming, let me know when we should look for ya!

Hahaha...Vanessa is already liking Gary's wife.

Please count us in on this one. We'll be getting in Friday night between 8 and 9.

Thank you for the great intro Lorie. I wonder which one of us is the zany one and who is the classy one. Lol

That is correct, 27 of a life sentence.

I know right? I figured more would be onboard. Maybe they're waiting to post... Or the runs scared the crap out if them. Lol. I dunno!

Either way, it'll be a blast!

I'll be down in San Diego that weekend watching my wife, daughter, mother-in-law and brother-in-law jump out of a perfectly good airplane and HOPEFULLY float gracefully to the ground under fully deployed parachutes.

Either that or watching what is basically my entire family plummet to their deaths.

I'm REALLY hoping for the first one.

I'll pray for the first on too Rich.

Let me know how it was for them because before I get too old to do that I want to jump too. It's just a bit pricey and haven't wanted to pay for it. My son is down with jumping with me, I can't remember if V would but I would guess yes.

I tend to agree "for the money" but that is on my bucket list and like so many other things in my list it's best to do while still (somewhat) young!!
