SoCal Wheeling 1/24/2009

Lets see if we can renew interest in group runs on the site. I am still down. My Heep is stock except for 31s, but I am willing to give it a shot. Anyone else want to do the 24th? I want to wheel with people who have been doing this for a while and are willing to give pointers without getting frustrated if I happen to be slow and creeping along as I will probably have my step daughters with me and don't want to scare them too much.

Jeff

I might be able to go.

I'd feel bad for my Jeep; she's getting bored of the city.

Let us know exactly where you guys are located and where you're thinking of going. That'll make it easier to figure out a run.

I am in Moreno Valley, not afraid to drive. How kid friendly are the group rides? My girls are 5 and 7 and don't want them to hear an overwhelming amount of profanities or drunkeness. Not that I am a prude, I curse and drink also, but not so much around the kids.

We try to keep it kid / spouse friendly. Also, we don't normally drink on the trail. I think that since this is a family friendly board, that expectation carries over to the runs.

Yep, I'd never participate in a run if there's drinking happening on the trail. I'd leave if I couldn't stop it. It's dangerous enough on some trails that you don't want to add alcohol to make it even more dangerous or likely to cause damage/carnage.

The runs I go on are generally always family friendly. In my experience, most swearing stops if there are kids or polite women around. The worst runs to be on are beer-fueled when there are nothing but guys under 25 out to impress one another.

I am planning on going on the 24. Just want to do a couple of things to the Jeep to be sure it is ready. Looking forward to this event, should be a lot of fun.

Oh, I just noticed that this was taken from a different thread and there is not a location picked. I am open to suggestions but would like to keep the drive to the spot within an hour or so if possible. I have been to Stoddard Wells and El Mirage with my dirt bike, but don't really recall trails that were full vehicle width friendly. I am sure they are there though. I would like to do something that is scenic and exploritory as I hope to take photos of the places I go. What are the good fun/beginner spots around here?

We could do Cleghorn, That is not too far up the road and is pretty scenic. I've never done that trail, but I've wanted to. My understanding is that there are difficult and easy options on a lot of the sections. You up for next Saturday Tiny and Cain? Anybody else? Any suggestions for meeting time and place?

I was on another forum (North American XJ Association) and from there I have the understanding that all the bypasses are not legal. The Cleghorn Rant - NAXJA Forums -::- North American XJ Association

If things have changed, I would love to do Cleghorn.

OK, I really would like to do an event that a stock Jeep can handle. From my understanding, the bypasses at Cleghorn are not legal and have been an issue with enforcement by rangers. Does anyone know if there are any nice scenic trails around Hemet Lake or Idylwild that would work out. Or maybe Joshua Tree? C'mon everyone, can't let this trip die before it starts. I may have to start flinging poo.

Jeff,

The parts of Cleghorn that are questionable are the challenging portions of the trail. The fire road is open the whole way.

There is a neat trail up Bee canyon that goes from Hemet to Idylewild. Not a lot of challenging stuff, but beautyful views.

Right now, my being able to go is a little sketchy... My Jeep is a bit sick and throwin' codes. If i can't get it worked out tomorrow, it will probabily be at the dealership next weekend.

Anza Borrego is about two hours from Mo Val, but you really should consider coming down with us and spending the weekend in the desert.

The weekend trip sounds very inticing. I just need to see my work schedule and see if I can fit it in.

I am just looking for interest for this coming weekend to see if I should start to get the Jeep ready or not. Bee Canyon sounds very cool as does Cleghorn. If anyone is still wanting to go, please let me know. I want to go with a group as I have heard so many horror stories of wheeling alone and don't want to be part of that group.

Jeff,

I'd love to go, but my Jeep's got problems and I'll be working on it this weekend. I hope you can get a group together.

OK everyone, my last attempt at getting a run togehter for this weekend. I know the forcast calls for possible rain, so I put the top back on. I would like to do something not too tough as I am new to this and don't want to get in over my head. I am thinking Bee Canyon would be a fun drive and since it drops out in Idywild, a good spot to grab a quick bite to eat and chat. If you are interested, please PM me or leave a post here. I would like to meet at the In n Out Burger in Hemet at 9 am. Looking forward to replies.

Jeff

Check out the Meet & Greet on MArch 27-29. Come stay for the weekend or just come out on Saturday. This is the perfect trip for someone new to Jeeping. Click the dash plaque in my sig to go to the thread.
