Team Woods and Team Hundy will be starting out from the Salton Sea area, on Friday morning. We'll wheel our way up to Borrego Springs. 17 Palms, Truckhaven Trial, Fonts Point, some small sand dunes. Maybe the Squeeze.

We are staying at the Borrego Valley Inn on Friday night. We'll wheel Saturday, maybe North Coyote Canyon and camp at Santa Rosa Mountain. Breakfast and a drive home on Sunday.

Is that the camp right near the top where that old chimney is? I think that is what we are shooting for.

I wonder if we would rather have a bbq, or a stove? Probably either one would work. I have a nice little suitcase ss bbq I can bring.

or, we can all go to your house and Melissa can make us breakfast!:D

so_calif_rubi
09-30-2008, 10:29 PM
OK the top of the mtn it is,ill bring the stove and you bring the bbq,and maybe they wiil lift the bbq restricaion by then,and camp fire one too.We could do Breakfast here get every one cleaned up and run Bee Canyon down the hill.

Yeah, I get tired of RM drinking all the beer. Do you really think they can put enough beer on a cruise ship, to keep him happy?

Make sure to bring WARM sleeping bags guys. It will get cold up there at night. The spring is 7200 feet, and the peak is 8000 ;)

Is it chilling off in Idyllwild yet? What's the night temps?

On Friday Morning, we'll be in Salton City at 10:00.

Meeting place is at the corner of Marina Drive and Center Street, in Salton City

Here's a link to the map MARINA DRIVE AND CENTER STREET (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=salton+city,+ca.&ie=UTF8&ll=33.280153,-115.962013&spn=0.003229,0.006748&t=h&z=17)

We'll be on Channel 10

If anybody wants my cell number, send me a PM.

We'll be staying at the Borrego Springs Resort on Friday night, wheelin Sat. morning, heading back to the hotel to check out, then heading up to Santa Rosa Mtn.

Woods

I was wondering where you've been.

We'll be at the Borrego Springs resort on Sat. morning. We'll head out to, "the sqeeze", "the Ledge", and Heart attack hill after breakfast. Here's a link to the trail head.

LINK (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.131198,-116.307406&ie=UTF8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&ll=33.132376,-116.306419&spn=0.011895,0.026994&t=h&z=15&iwloc=addr)

It's about a 30 minute drive from Borrego Springs.

I'd guess we'll be there bout 9:30.

Trail's are medium. Not like Bronco Peak

Woods
10-13-2008, 09:49 PM
BG,

Just checked the drive from Hollyweird to the trail head. If you make this one, you are truly a king.

Was just up in your part of town, last week. Went to the Magic Castle. That place and the people that go to it are REALLY STRANGE. It was a great time though.

Billy_Goat
10-13-2008, 09:49 PM
Haha "not like bronco peak"...classic
Sounds like fun, I think I'll go. Just gotta figure out how to get there.

Yeah, this is the weird capital of the world.
Thats awesome you got to go to the magic castle. Not just anyone can go.

How far is the drive to to meet you guys sat?

Billy_Goat
10-13-2008, 09:55 PM
I'd be better off with an address I could mapquest. It looks like trail head is near salton sea. but where will we finish?

Never mind, I see google maps has directions.

Billy_Goat
10-13-2008, 09:59 PM
Damn! 3 hours to the trailhead!

Where do you plan to end? Idllywild? Is it just a loop and then back to your hotel?

This does sound like a bit much for a day trip 8(

Is the trail a loop? or does it end somewhere else?

That run is just a short one. It loops around and we come out the same way we came in. We'll head back to Borrego Springs after the run, then run whatever sounds good. Maybe North Coyote Canyon, on the way up to Santa Rosa Mtn.

Jillian is going to stay at the hotel, on Saturday morning. That's the reason that we need to go back to BS.

Billy_Goat
10-13-2008, 10:15 PM
Ok, and how long will we be on the trail?

I might go if it's just a few hours trail time

I'll let ya'll know before thursday if I'm going or not.

Seems a bit far

Well when you put it like that I guess I should agree to go before Hundy double dog dares me again 8)

Maybe I'll come out friday night and get a room, that sounds better.

Got an address for the hotel?

Billy_Goat
10-13-2008, 10:32 PM
ok, googled the hotel, I'll sheck it out
awww F-that $200 rooms?

I want to go on a run with you guys but I don't think this one is it.
To bad too, I need to get out.
Sorry if I've wasted your time Woods.

10-14-2008, 02:02 PM

BG, some of the best camping around is just outside BS. I've got a really cool secret spot that I can send you to. Just come camp.

Not sure which way we're going. The trail head is HERE (http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&ll=33.131514,-116.308136&spn=0.054842,0.076561&z=14&msid=102353549398672680408.000459436c09ae1dd252b)

Would be good to have someone who knows the area. This is all new to us.

We'll be at the trailhead bout 9:30. Just a morning run on that side, then we'll head over to North Coyote Canyon. :beer:

Thanks guys but my new boss is being a total douche and i'm not getting the hours i need. So i really cant afford an extravagant vacation to an exotic location. 8)

Well I don't think I can make it.

Woods the area that you have mapped in NOT the trail head for where you want to go. You need to go down S2 (Geat southern overland road) about 1 1/2 miles, it's just past the RV park about 1/4 mile past a small bridge. there's a wooden sign (don't remember what it says) that I look for on the left. If you get to the Blair valley camp you have gone to far (however there are some pictograghs and some other cool things to see in Box canyon just past the turn).

I'll try and put up a better map for you.

Woods
10-19-2008, 06:05 PM
Well, we didn't see everything that we set out to, but we did some some things that we didn't plan on.

But Baily's Cabin sure made for a grand finale.

Was great to hang around the fire, with everybody last night.
