WF SoCal in Borrego Springs...
 
Couldn't have been a better day today......

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e2...FinBorrego.jpg

.....hitting the trails with three WF buddies and a couple of friends. Unlimited, who's really Brian, led lilredwrangler (Larry), his buddy Don, Iamagolfspaz (Mike) and me (tiny terr.... chris), my son Jon and his buddy Mike (Silent, a new member here) to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to run an "easy" (in Brian's mind I think) trail...

Well, as much as I hate to admit it, this was my first real trail. I realized that up until now I've been cruising dirt roads and spinning through mud puddles.

I think I can speak for everyone that a good time was had by all, though I thought Larry was trying to hit every rock on his way up (kidding Larry, really).

Brian brought us to the first climb and I thought no freaking way. I'm not taking my baby, the first vehicle I have ever considered making a place for in my living room, up that stinking pile of rocks...... but I have a bit of an ego, and I hate to quit... and I think Brian could have lead a yugo up those rocks.

We had a blast. I'm going to crop up my pictures and start posting them. Thanks Brian, I had a blast.

Terrors Hill

nicolas-eric 03-10-2007 10:12 PM

you have great trails over there. i´d like to have anything like that here in europe.
when i see those pictures i wish that i find the time sometimes to stay longer in CA than 1-2 days. then i would rent a jeep and go for a trail like that...perhaps this dream willcome true in thefuture...

iamagolfspaz 03-10-2007 10:15 PM

There is a road through there.(Somewhere)

tiny terror 03-10-2007 10:19 PM

That weren't a road, that was a stream we drove through.... I love that they call is a crossing. We didn't really cross it did we?

Spaz on a rock...

It was really amazing to meet a group of people who've been interacting with each other only in words on a screen. We met at Starbucks at 8:00 am.... though we were all pretty early. We hung there until a little after 8 and made sure no one else was coming then headed out to meet GolfSpaz a half hour down the road.

I love when people are on time.

While we stood around at Starbucks we bs'ed and compared and Brian showed me exactly how to install my CB. He also lent me the meter thing to tune it (and gave me a kickin' tow hook)

Joke of the day was me not being able to figure out how to put my beastie into 4Low and struggling up half the first hill in high.... oh and the fact that whoever was supposed to bring me a phone book to sit on forgot and I couldn't see a dang thing. (ha, beat you all to it :p)

iamagolfspaz 03-10-2007 10:48 PM

Is that Ocotillo Wells?
I've been there 1 time to go ride quads, it didn't turn out well...
Watch out for sink holes, seriously. sink holes can ruin your whole day.

Cool pics and glad you guys had fun.

tiny terror 03-10-2007 11:40 PM

I'm in there, Spaz, you can see my head just fine :p....

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e2...toodriving.jpg

could this picture be any better?

tiny terror 03-10-2007 11:45 PM

It was Cougar Canyon in Borrego Springs.

And I don't think the wrack looks like that much fun, plus, longer legs is fine, but I'd like my knuckles not to drag the ground.

amy 03-11-2007 12:26 AM

Great pictures! I am so jealous. :D
Glad you all got together and had a fun day. http://home.comcast.net/~sahobbs/2thumbs.gif

jjseel 03-11-2007 12:44 AM

And you thought you had the Jeep thing BEFORE!:D

1BLKJP 03-11-2007 01:03 AM

Looks like you all had a great run. Glad you all got to meet up. I think just might be the largest actual WF gathering to date. :D

So Tiny, I take it you had a blast on your first trip out? :D

Silent 03-11-2007 01:20 AM

WOOOOO That was the best fun i ever had and it will be even better when i have my jeep...! we gotta Go AGAIN!!!

tiny terror 03-11-2007 09:26 AM

Since Silent hasn't introduced himself, I'll do it :D... ain't I pushy.

My son is on the left and Silent is on the right. I converted him slowly through brainwashing to the jeep thing while he was eyeing mustangs. I think I should get a star, or a point, or a hash mark on the jeep or something...

AGAIN AGAIN!!!

Yeah, I had a blast. I'd go out again today if I could. And thing about this being the largest gathering, we had two or three more that just couldn't make it this time. But they will next time I think....

BIG BEAR!!!!
