I have been to this event for the last 2 years and now its moving back to truck haven and or truck haven style trails. It was a nice blast from the past as I started on 3 wheelers out in Ocotillo OHV park when I was 7! I actually said to myself that I am only doing Moab but now am thinking of attending due to the low price of fuel!

The boys and I went last year for the day. I am pretty sure we will make it out to this year's event as well, if for nothing less than at least a day.

Being that the trails are different maybe enough reason to go! I have gone for the last 2 years and I was more impressed the first year and last was soso likely because of the simple trails picked out. Maybe a get-to-gether is in order?

I am thinking about camping at Octollio wells, it should be nice and open there plus there are showers.

We have an RV, so we have showers. Ocotillo is too far to travel every day and the wheeling around ocotillo sucks.

Are there public showers/camping closer to the event?

Camping everywhere, don't think there are showers except at Ocotillo. Get a Zodi shower, great portable shower for camping.

Bump.

Anybody here registering? Or you guys do your own thing?

I might go out for the day on Saturday...maybe camp over...maybe.

This will be my first time there, if I go. How zooie does it get there? I'm not really into the huge crowd scene too much.

We're planning to drive out on Friday afternoon and camp. Not exactly sure where, though. Will probably go wheeling Saturday and then head back to OC Saturday night, or maybe Sunday morning.

weather.com said chance of rain sat and sun but not anymore. Clear skies and sunny whole weekend. Can't wait. we should make a general meet area for everyone on here and do a run together on sun.

For instance Sunday 9:00 main road just before the hill. Maybe we can all cruise a run together for a couple of hours. I think that would be cool. Huge line of nothing but jk's make a great pic anyway.

Nobody wants to do a jk run? Well I will check one more time before I leave. I am going out sat morning instead.

Roxster

I'm having to back out at the last minute due to some issues at work. I'm really bummed about it. Hope to meet some of you another time. Have fun.

It was Glamis with Jeeps. Well, that one area was, anyhow. Most of the day was low-key and fun.

CD, you should have stuck around longer. Puddlz and Riverkid, thanks for letting me hang out/wheel with you guys. I went down there flying solo not knowing what to expect - it turned out to be another good trip. :beer:

Thanks, but I prefer to wheel with a few friends in the serenity of nature; not 10,000 strangers in a remake of Mad Max.

LOL. I completely understand. I'm usually the same way, but I had to go and check this event out at least once in my life. Mission accomplished. Now back to serenity.

I had a great time. There was a bad roll over on Obama (blue trail before checkpoint 4) It happend about 4-5 vehicles behind me. Didn't see anyone from here, I was driving my Samurai. The slot at night was a mad house. Things like that are what is going to shut down our trails. I think there was just as much alcohol as there was dust.
