Truck Haven 2021 25th Anniversary Run - Date to be determined

For those who are unfamiliar, Truck Haven is a huge playground for off-road vehicles located in the Southern California desert, immediately adjacent to Salton City, Ca.

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 kind of fun we've had during previous events by checking out a Trip Report from a previous run :)

Newcomers are encouraged to join us at Truck Haven since there is such a wide variety of terrain. If you don't like the way something looks just let us know and we can help you find a bypass.

Vehicle damage: There is always a possibility of vehicle damage any time you go offroading. Damage could be to the vehicles body, or mechanical systems.

The group camps in tents, RVs, pop up campers, etc.

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 :D

Bring everything you will need. We normally have lunch on the trail at least one day.

Firewood We ask everyone to bring firewood to add to our traditional BIG campfire. If you can't bring any don't worry about it, but the more we have, the warmer the fire:D

Bring your own cooking supplies. If you don't have any you should be able to share someone else's grill.

Check for our upcoming Pot Luck Dinner thread. It has become a tradition to bring a favorite dish to share for our Saturday night meal. This has worked out GREAT in the past.

There is a large convenience store/gas station and a couple of restaurants in Salton City which is about 10 minutes from base camp and a Truck Stop with showers a short distance away.



+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Let's start this off by choosing a date for the run. My vote is for an MLK weekend run which would be the weekend of January 16-17, 2021.

What do you think about January Brian? Too soon because of COVID? Should this event be scheduled in the fall instead? I always liked starting the year at Truck Haven, but we are in such an unknown right now...

I'm watching this thread to see how things go. I'd love to get back to Truckhaven especially now that my truck can do most of the trails.

The way things are going, I'll have tons of vacation time to burn by then; it just depends on when they relax things.

I will have to see. MLK is always tough with me as it is close to New Years for my work schedule. I will have to see where things are later in the year.

Looks like big fun, but it would be a LOOONNNGGG drive from here on the East coast. If somebody puts something together for Rausch Creek or AOAA in Pennsylvania, i could probably do that.

Let's hope gas. Stays cheap at least. The Red Earth Casino is almost below $2 a gallon😲
This week it's 1.89/gallon in Wilmington, DE, almost wish I had a bigger tank.
