In 2015 MLK weekend is on January 19. We'll be out there Jan 16-18th.



Information about Truck Haven Hills at Salton City, CA.


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

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

Please have safe tow points attached to your frame at the front and rear of your vehicle! It's also recommended that you bring your own tow strap.

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 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 bigger the fire

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, two truck stops, a Mexican restaurant, and a general menu restaurant in Salton City and just beyond.

Weather conditions in January usually consist of warm days and cool to cold nights. Rain could be present. High winds, and driving dust storms are always possible. Come prepared!

This is a newbie friendly run. If you have never wheeled before we would be glad to show you the ropes.

Can get busy with new installs in January, but I've got this on the calendar first.

Will only be bringing the Explorer this time.

With some wanting before, and some wanting after I am just leaving it as is.

I deleted the discussion about a new date to avoid confusion going forward.

Dave could probably say better, but I'm not sure it made it that far south:(
