To discuss this trip online: Truckhaven 2006 Thread
Truck Haven 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've had in the past by checking out a Trip Report from a previous run
Normally, the majority of participants camp at our Truck Haven base camp. There are NO facilities available at Truck Haven. 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
Bring everything you will need. Everyone is also requested to bring firewoodto add to our traditional BIG 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 can get COLD in February!!
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 or favorite treat 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 don't have any you can probably share someone else's grill.
There is a small grocery store, a Mexican Restaurant, and a burger shop (Superburger) in Salton City. Both restaurants are very good.
There is gas in Salton City and also at a new truck stop just West of North Marina Drive.
Weather conditions in February usually consist of warm days and cool to cold 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 2006
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.
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.
