Its a pretty long ways to come just for a day run. Probably close to 5 hours each way. It would probably be better to grab your sleeping bag (lows in the 30s) and some food and come on out. If you dont have a stove dont worry about it and come on out there will be plenty of us with stoves that you can use. Mapquest Salton City CA and that will get you the closest location to get directions from. From salton city you will take S22 towards Borrego Springs Go about 3-4 miles. On the left you will see sign that says Ocotillo State vechicle recreation area. Stay on the highway and you will start climbing to the top of a bluff. A few hundred yards up on the right you will see a road closed sign and that is where you turn right. Go up past that and veer to the right. You will see us all there. If you want more info you can give me a call. 619 322 9832. Matt Also bring firewood you can never have to big of a fire.

ok im from pheonix ....i need like an accurate as you can get location on this place so i can find it

These are the directions I have from PHX...


I-10 to Mecca Exit.

Follow all the way through Mecca. Cross railroad tracks and make a left at the light.

Make the first right, comes up quick.

Take a left at the light by the Truck Stop.

This part is different...
Follow 86 all the way to S22. You will pass N. Marina Drive. S22 is the intersection by Superburger.

Take a right on S22 and head towards Borrego Springs.

For directions to camp from there, check the Truck Haven discussion thread. Froader posted photos and directions to the new campsite.

Well, I just got off the phone with the body guy, and no Explorer for me this weekend. :( I should make it out anyway (might need a extra seat or three). He assures me it will be finished by TDS or sooner.

I'm almost out the door. It's raining here in SF, but they don't forecast to move much farther south for a few days, if at all.

We decided to just come out late Friday night or early Saturday morning. We are planning on leaving Sunday morning after we get up and around to packing up. Since I don't have a vehicle, we are going to make it a short trip.

Tracy and I are planning on being out there around 2-3 pm. Have to do a bit of work on the truck in the am then pack up and head out. I need a diesel, the darn gas motor slows me up getting out there and back. We plan on packing up and heading home sunday morning.
