Damon, you going to in-n-out tonight? I would like to chat and see if you are interested in getting more involved with the club and helping to plan events.

Sounds like a plan. I don't run into any adventures at JTNP, I will definitely join you.

Well, driving in JTNP can be tricky because you need to dodge many things that stick out. Branches and bushes are not as bad as Joshua Trees: Those guys have extremely sharp thorns. Unlike people who are familiar with Baja-style racing through narrow trails -- our So. Cal. members seem to be pretty good at it -- I had to learn... I smacked a bush -- or two -- and then slightly drifted into a Joshua Tree with my passenger side. You can reproduced the sound that I heard by taking a key and digging it into a side of a car smile The passenger side of the car has no square inch of metal that does not have at least one scratch...

The good news is that most of the terrible damage is done to the door. This means it is going to be easy to repaint it, if necessary. This I am going to attempt to remove some of the scratches myself with Mothers PowerBall 4Paint and its friends. I will dedicate next weekend to going through the car to ensure that the combination of washboard and high speeds did not bring any unseen damage.

/v

P.S.: I know that I mentioned a winter run during the last meeting. If you guys don't want to see snow, Joshua Tree National Park as well as Western Nevada are definitely worth exploring.

Hey all,

I'm a complete noob to all things offroading and would love to tag along on the trip. But after reading through a lot of your posts it is painfully clear that I'm underequipped with both my X (everything's factory) as well as my experience. Do you all have any suggestions for any easy runs I can do in the Bay Area to earn my spurs? Thanks in advance!

Will, Hollister would be perfect for you. It's set up like a snow park and everything is clearly labeled so you can easily stick to green/blue runs. Also you can learn lots going with a group that has been before.

You will be in good hands with D (UT48).

Looks like it's a go for tomorrow, Sunday (April 6th, 2008)

Here's some Links's

The Parks Web Site

Map to Park: - - - code is to long for , so copy and paste if need be...

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=9400+Cienega+Road&mrt=all&sll=36.773044,-121.408882&sspn=0.009385,0.013583&ie=UTF8&ll=36.772717,-121.409376&spn=0.009385,0.013583&t =h&z=16&iwloc=addr

Mape of where to get beer, and snacks

http://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF-8&q=291+McCray+St,+Hollister,+CA+95023,+USA&ll=36.854282,-121.398947&spn=0.009375,0.013583&t=h&z=16&iwloc=addr

So, the Idea

Meet at the 4x4 obstacle course
map around 10 and leave it around 11

more than likely head up to hector heights for lunch

1. Damon

Want to thank everyone for coming out, was a good run - nice to be out on the trails again and still be home for dinner laugh

did pretty good on limited damage this time, just a little scratch on a brand new "X" "the video" , a broken off value stem and a touch of sun burn mad

also, remember that "closed" trail we hiked down to, here's the reason it's closed... old video (caution: lots of "F" bombs)

rock on - till next time
