Scorpion's do Calico

Well after work a group of Scorpion CT's (combat trainers) Decided we would go out nd have some fun after working 3 weeks straight.


Calico is one of my favorite places to wheel and best of all its close to home.






This guy was just chilling out.











The hills are gorgeous.

The guy that drives the black 2dr def is of some relation to the honey badger.





Nothing better than that shit eating grin you get when you love your Jeep.

Calico is a great place to wheel and camp. There are some awesome mines to explore and many historical sites.

I love Calico! run it several times a year (love Gatekeeper). That Obstacle you call the wall at the top of Odessa canyon is even sketchier if you try to drive the road above it and squeeze around where the road caved in; the rear tire actually goes off the edge!

My club is doing an Armed Forces Day run there. You should join us Dirty. We can show you some "bonus" obstacles too!

Calico was our first major off road experience and we enjoyed it as well. Nice scenery, good obstacles. Great place for a n00b to cut their teeth.

There is some great extreme stuff there too (besides Gatekeeper). You just have to know where to find it. Scrambler Canyon and Goatman's cut are awesome.
