Havasu obviously, but specifically the So Cal peeps?

Worked all weekend on my trailer and toys, going somewhere, just not sure where!
First time going solo on a big weekend, had enough of our neighbors drunkin' shenanigans...

Post it up!

I'm So Cal and would normally stay local, but I'm supposed to join a group out at standard wash in Havasu Thursday to Sunday. Not a hundred percent sure yet, but it'll be my first time off roading in Havasu if it works out.

Wife, kids and I will be in Topock...Thursday will be a mix of grazing, and getting bikes fired back up. BIL and his girl going to Glamis for boozefest, so low key this year at our pad. Probably ride and target shoot this weekend, redneck family traditions.

Thanksgiving for me has been spent at Glamis or havasu. My little guy is only a month old and I just picked up my toyhauler. No time to go this year :( hoping to make my sons first trip around New Years :)

Have fun and be safe
Run your ego booster for 24 hours straight to celebrate in earnest.

Well we were planning to go over the hill and try a new spot but this fire deal has me worried. Last time we left during the pre-rain dryer than heck fall period the Lobo fire hit and we were in Tennessee. I was worried sick about my Mom.
So, we are going to stay home. We put the cover on the 5th wheel today. Sucks.
Supposed to get some rain towards the end of the week. I sure hope so.
Have two trips planned for next year already, and tenetive target for a 3rd. If spring comes in March we will be off again.
TPC if you are reading this we have confirmed the viability of that camp spot way hell and gone up in the end of that valley. That is trip #1. When we nail down a date you will be notified first...It is 28 miles from the hwy....

It’s pretty packed I just got home Was there Wednesday till Sunday
ItsI usually packed all week. But we camp DEEP into the wash right up against the small dunes. There's usually no other camp behind us and sometimes we even have 3 open sides. If I get there early enough I can red tape a few areas and the "neighborhood" kids take over those areas. Below are a couple of cool shots of the kiddos

I haven't been out to Glamis since 2000, maybe 2001. Sold my JSC, all my buddies were building long travel cars. Now that I have kids, really thinking about finding an old school SCU beam car 4/5 seater. Something to bomb around Topock, and toss in the trailer for a Dune trip a couple times a year. How are the dunes these days, crowded, chaotic...full of jack-holes like the river on holidays?

Headed to Dumont Tuesday-sat. Been 3yrs since last time. So Much work to get ready, 7hr drive, and then to clean up after, sometimes wonder if it's worth it.

We are planning on doing a full day Saturday in the hills east of Reno/Sparks or the North Valleys we haven't come to an agreement on that yet. Not sure how many we have going yet but sounds like a pretty large group of side by sides.

We are hanging around Havasu all wee / weekend. Definitely up for some off-roading! On Friday some friends to a trip out to a coral out here and the group has gotten pretty big. I might roll with them to check it out. :).

Other than that pretty much down for whatever / whenever!

I keep a lookout for any RDP stickers or shirts.
I'll be in the Rhino with a 3x5 American flag "Safeglo" whip on it.
Right on man, I will keep an eye out as well. I am in a red buggy with an all red whip with 3x5 american flag thin blue line.
