Desert Rats: Looking for High Desert Jeepers
 
Looking for Jeepers in the High Desert to hit the trails with. I've noticed the majority of Jeepers on the forum are from down the hill ... which makes it hard to put runs together last minute ...

Wanted to give us desert rats a spot to set up runs or just BS.

That's not too far from Ridgecrest I guess. We usually have stuff going on but if you give us a heads up, we normally can get 4-6 jeeps together. Keep an eye on this forum.

JoeBot13 10-26-2012 09:19 PM

ChuckMRN 10-26-2012 10:17 PM

Apple Valley here... Hope to have the heep up and ready for a test run next weekend. My hydro set up gets here Tuesday.. I'm familiar with Barstow area. Grew up there and spent alot of time in the Dez there and Death Valley. Want to spend some time this winter North of the 15 towards Vegas. Also just saw info on Winter on the Rocks in St George the end of Jan. Looks cool.

Hey Chuck, could you send me a link to the St. George run? I wheeled there a few months back and loved it there.

Thanks,
Stan

JoeBot13 10-27-2012 12:20 PM

Heck yeah that looks pretty awesome ... it's only about 4 hours from here too ... probably can even talk the wife into going!

Xjman1 10-27-2012 12:43 PM

Couple more hours from st george and you can hit moab. I am trying to start planning for moab in early 2013. Do not want to go to a major event like ejs just s road trip with some socal'rs.

Xjman1 10-27-2012 02:02 PM

This run does look fin though and i have never wheeled that area. Sister used to live there and i always said i wanted to explore it so may just hit this with you all and postpone moab another year.

ChuckMRN 10-27-2012 04:05 PM

If I go the wife will def be going too. Trying to coordinate the days off right now.

JoeBot13 10-27-2012 04:11 PM

We don't pick training back up until Feb ... Moab would be an awesome trip too ... probably more towards spring though ... hell at least that way it would be after taxes and I would have new rubber and my BB on ...

How many sick days ya got Dave? :D

DaK 10-28-2012 04:41 PM

Have quite a few "sick days" the problem is my company is one deep in what I do, me! Gov't has a padiwon in training to assist me as needed but he is fresh from school. How fresh? Still wears his letterman jacket to work, that is how fresh. Good kid, smart, just needs some "agin".

Just have to see how this rolls. Way time is flying by it will be here soon enough.

Hello from another desert rat in Ridgecrest! There always seems to be someone doing Last chance and Nightmare on here so keep an eye on this forum. Another run would be Goler Wash which is east of LCC.

91badass 10-29-2012 12:09 PM

Jeff, that is Goler GULCH, Goler Wash is out in DV on the way to Manson's last stand. One issue with being out here, places all named either the same or close to the same.

Well, I have always been told by the locals that I rode dirt bikes with it was Goler Wash, well what do you expect from dirt bikers! :rofl: JK JK

So I looked it up on my Friends Of Jawbone map and lo and behold, it's Goler Gulch! Thanks DAK, I stand corrected, well actually I'm sitting down right now....LOL

Yep that's the one. I have wheeled with Yomondo before and he is a great guy and even tho your stock he will help guide you and keep you as safe as he can. Like always there are no guaranties when 4 wheeling, it's all up to you to judge what's best for you.

If you have any questions just ask away on his post, he will gladly answer any and all questions. If you make it have a great time!

lol i've been wheelin' for a while ... I accept all the damage I inflict on my rig ... now when my wife scratches it like when she dropped my hard top along the side ... then it's mandatory I give her shit for the next couple years ... but when I do it it's just battle scars

:rofl::rofl::rofl: That was great!

Yea I got a few dents and bent my front bumper all to hell but that is why I got a used Jeep and not a new one. That and I don't want the payment!

Found a used TJ bumper and got it for free so I am happy. Now I have to re-mount my tow bar brackets. Just one more thing on "the" list!
