I'm not sure why this thread never got started, yet there as already plenty of people saying they are going.

So MLK Weekend, Truckhaven (El Nino permitting )

Who's in!:D

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, or mechanical.

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 mild 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 tricks.

In crowd...

AFAIK, I'm going..

I just need to fix the u-joint on the Van first.. It "felt" like I lost a u-joint... and luckily it happened right after I got home... heck, it was the next time I tried to drive it out of the neighborhood.

~Mark

edit: I just remembered, I need to fix doors on the explorer.. I can no longer open the passenger side front or drivers side rear door from the outside...

I hope to make it out. Had our mesquite tree cut down today. Unfortunately it won't be ready until next season.

We are in, My ex is taken apart at the moment but should be done in time. I am going to have to rent a trailer because mine is in Phoenix and needs work. My sister in law is coming out to hang with my kiddos so that will be cool. Cant wait.

I'll see what it can do, but I won't do too much with it.

Very Nice, The rear end of my ex is mostly done, now the front is taken apart. I am replacing all the heims and cleaning some stuff up. Cant wait to get it out there.

That bottle of rum you left in my RV has aged nicely by now.
