Just seeing if anyone would be interested in a run up here in the high desert on Sat. February 2nd.

The place would be off of I-15 and Wild Wash road. I haven't been out there in a couple of years so there would be no preset trails. The area is mostly BLM land and is considered "open" meaning there are no marked routes, so we'll get to wander around abit. Plan would be to meet at the freeway and head east till we run into hwy 247, and then head south to Lucerne Valley. The terrain is mostly hard packed dirt with some sand, rocks, and washes. 4wd recommended, but a 2wd should do just fine especially with a little extra clearance...

When - 2/02/08
Meet time - 9:30 (flexible)
Meet place - I-15 x Wild Wash rd. (east side)
Comm - CB ch 34
Extras - Snacks, drinks, water, all the normal stuff (Note-please make sure to have at least 3/4 tank of gas at the beginning of the run. It's a long way to the next station)...


Who's going...

Thanks Boomer and Cyber for the heads up. :thumbsup: Unfortunately, this weekend doesn't look good, this is my first week of school and i'm trying to stay on top of everything. And something's up w/ my front end, gotta check into it, maybe the wash runs a couple weeks ago were beyond its limits. :rolleyes: Have fun though guys.

Warm sounds good right now, but you've got to start planning runs more than 2 days in advance :shifty_ey ;). We have stuff going on for Superbowl Sunday, so I can't leave the day before unless I spend half the day tomorrow helping around the house. Guess I'll let you know some time tomorrow after my domestic contributions have been properly evaluated :)

Haha, yeah I really should try a little harder. I once again was planning on taking this weekend off, but what the hay 8 runs in 8 weeks is a pretty good streak...:D

*peeks her nose in and wishes she could go play as well...

Barstool and Victorville are old stomping grounds...too bad they have made Rainbow Basin off limits to wheelers...it used to be a real awesome play place...

Have fun those of you who go...
