1/20 - Riverside Area Wheeling Anyone??
 
On Sunday morning, I wanted to take a few friends from out of town out for a little bumpy dirt road riding - nothing serious. I will put my top down, and get the Jeep a little dirty someplace local.

On 12/28, three people were tragically killed while waiting for a bus in Riverside near the Tyler Galleria. One of the victims' twin sister (and Mother) are here visiting from South America until Monday, and I would like to take them out for a short drive. Where they are from (Peru), the land is ripe for 'wheeling, but most people don't have the $$means$$ to get out on the trail.

If anyone is interested, please send me a private message. I am sure this would be a way to tell Melissa's family that Riverside is with her and her family.

Description:
Small spur trails that climb hills - some with deep ruts, rocks here and there. Steep U-shaped bowls to drive in and out of. You can walk the iffy stuff, great views of the smog - next to the 215 freeway.

Back in 2005, I saw this hot Toyota Supra that was sitting on blocks - all of the drivetrain was missing, but it made a great RTI Ramp for our Jeeps.:punk: I didn't see any stolen cars this time - the place was pretty clean, in a matter of fact.

This should be fun for maybe a couple of hours tops.

Any stock Jeep can handle these trails. Nothing serious. We plan to meet at the Food 4 Less Parking Lot on California and Van Buren (across the street from the ARCO station) at 10 AM.

TheDesertOutlaw 01-20-2013 08:47 AM

Update: The family of Melissa (RIP) had a great time at Disneyland. They had special VIP treatment and fun memories on their first every trip to Disneyland.:thumb:

I will be in the Food 4 Less parking lot at 10 am

Thanks again, everybody.

Ditto! Thanks for a great ride. I had a blast and it's always sweeter when there's a cause.

It was nice meeting everyone and look forward to the next one.

Looks like you guys had a blast. I Mountain Bike in that same area. It's call Heartatack. Ride a bike thru there and you will know why it's call that. Anyways, I did not think it was legal to drive in there. The rocks you went over were placed there to keep out cars. Ever have a problem with the law out there???

I don't think there's much of a law problem cause there were dirt bikes and quads all over there.

It looks like a cool place to go mess around in.
