Poll for March Meet n Greet,

The only way I can make a new poll is to have the old one closed and create a whole new one in a different thread. So here goes.

So now lets get started. The poll will be open till December 31st, then will be closed.

Jeff

Great, got a couple votes. Now lets get the rest of all of ya members to vote, haha. I will not vote since I am the organizer and will go to any of the locations. As long as there is trails for all members, I am good with it.

Done deal Jeff. Changed it to Johnson this time. But I still don't really care where, I just want to go wheel.

It is hard to beat Anza Borrego in March, and there are places to stay for the non camping folks. Not trying to sway the vote just simple facts.

Do you have to be a member, or just a Jeeper? If a member, I can't vote Anza-Borrego, but as a Jeeper, I can say Anza Borrego. Get back to me.....

If you are a Jeeper then you are member. If you are planning on attending the Meet and Greet then you can vote and your vote counts. Look to the the Turd for confirmation.

ALL HAIL THE TURD.

I voted for Johnson Valley because as a group, we haven't been there yet. If the famous Johnson Valley location has scared some away from voting for it, please realize there are plenty of easy to moderate trails out there that would be fun to run in addition to the more famous/notorious trails we don't have to go on. It'd be something new and exciting rather than just doing the same trails most of us have done multiple times.

Come on guys, Johnson Valley cause you know you really want to.
If Johnson Valley doesn't get enough votes, my second-choice would be Calico. Not in small part due to the nearby presence of Peggy Sue's Diner.

No matter where the majority chooses, I'll happily tag along & have a ball doing it.

Hey Jerry, I voted Anza Borrego on the first poll for selfish reasons as we have a house out there. I then voted Calico on the new poll for the same reasons as you, gas and good food nearby. I would love to go to Johnson Valley but there aren't many amenities nearby, so for a group of this size do you think that would be problematic?

And, are there motels nearby at Calico for the non campers?

Yes, there is the Oak Tree Inn right next to Peggy Sues. It only takes a couple mins to get to where we are camping in Calico.

Thanks Kota, then I'm in for Calico or Anza. Looking forward to wheeling with you and your dad again in a couple weeks, I installed some skid plates for the trip to try out.

You are a member of Wrangler Forum. I set these up so us members can meet each other, put a name to a face and have some fun wheeling. So vote to what you want to do.

I'm in for Calico, lots of trails out there to spread out the group. Nice campground, camp cabins, and RV spots.

Remember Gary- just because the giant boulder is there does not mean you HAVE to try the news skids out by going over it.

I think the Tera Del Sol in Ocotillo is 2 weeks befor the M&G. I plan on checking that out. For that reason I voted for Calico!

@ Jerry, it seems that many of us don't know of the jeep trails in Johnson Valley. Maybe you can plan a trip and lead a few runs out there. If so, I'm in
I actually love Johnson Valley. I have been there a lot with my SxS. I have not been there with my jeep because I don't know any jeep trails out there, other than the Hammers.

Funny Jen, I still have to be a little careful until I get a plate under the oil pan and tranny.

Get it. I don't know how many times I have ground the Warn Tranny/Oil Pan on rocks but mine is bent in sort of a half moon from coming down on to it.

You can also try Off-Road Evolution for your oil pan skid. They're in Fullerton so you can save on shipping charges (its probably more expensive than WARN- I got a deal on mine at the Expo). Oil pan skid install is easy- I did it. However there are two bolts with the tranny skid that are a serious pain to get to. Also if you have an exhaust spacer it might rattle. A couple of washers takes care of it.

Your transmission is already protected, it's the oil pan you have to worry about.

Got Skid row on mine. Calico was fun and we motel'ed it on Lori's run a few weeks ago. I would love to do both canyons this time. I bugged out too early last time.

We are dying to go out there Jerry, but like Dan said we didnt know there was any moderate trails to run for a large group like this. I certainly think a trip out there to try bull frog and explore some more of the area is a good idea...

I'm thinking possibly doing a Bullfrog run in February if there's interest.

I'd like to do JV too for my own selfish reasons, but I don't know it's the best venue for this group. Some people won't want to camp where there are no toilets, plus it doesn't sound like we have enough trail leaders for multiple groups at different levels.

Anza Borrego didn't have enough difficulty for me last time. Plus it's a longer drive for me.

I think Calico is the best choice for this group. Trails for all levels, and plenty of trail-knowledgeable trail leaders for several different groups. Tent camping, RV/trailer camping, cabins, nearby hotels. And restaurants for those who don't want to cook.

Yep JV is definitely a 100% primitive area, and the nearest restaurant is probably 30 minutes from the usual camping areas. No water, no showers, no toilets, and for the most part no cellular coverage either. Ya gotta be fully prepared and self-sustaining for JV, that is for sure.

I agree on all counts...concerning JV, Anza, and Calico.
