Truckhaven is a huge playground for off-road vehicles. There are trails for everyone from mild to wild. This is a great place to test your driving abilities as well as the capabilities of your Explorer. You can see the fun we had last year by checking out our Trip Report :)


Last year the majority of the particapants camped at the Truckhaven base camp. There are NO facilities available. Camping is primitive with no water, toilets or showers available. If you have a porta potty bring it. A 5 gallon bucket with a plastic bag will work well :DBring everything you will need. Everyone is also requested to bring firewoodto add to our campfire. If you can't bring any don't worry about it, but the more we have the warmer we'll be and the nights get COLD in January!!

Saturday night we will be having a potluck dinner with a twist. Everyone should bring their own meat and beverages, but also bring a side dish or desert for all to share. The potluck has been a lot of fun and very tasty in the past!

Bring your own cooking supplies if you can or you can probably share someone else's grill if you don't have one.

Weather conditions in January usually consist of warm days and cool to cool nights, rain can be present at this time of year and high winds and cold nights are always possible. Come prepared!

Hotel Accommodations For Truckhaven 2004
Here is a list of hotels in Indio, Salton Sea and Borrego Springs.
Sandy and I stayed at the Palm Canyon Resort before and thought is was adequate and the price was reasonable. :)
If you want Class and you have the cash, the La Casa Del Zorro is the place to go.:eek:
Here is a site for Borrego Springs where you can also check out the prices and what the other places look like.
One other thing I'd like to mention is October thru June is the peak season around there and alot of "Snow Birds" frequent this area, so don't wait too long if you are looking for a room.

It can happen when you least expect it...

I just want to make everyone aware (if there was a chance that you weren't) that a roll is always a possibility when you're out testing the limits of your truck. It can even happen when you're not pushing that hard from just a short lapse of concentration or a slightly misplaced tire.

We do all we can to get everyone through safely, but there's always that chance...
