Have a little class buddy and respect the ADV site.

Dood, you need to get a clue. ADV is a world wide forum, but there are lots of other spin off groups and sites where events and ride details get planned.

Anyway...enough of that BS. BTW, I think you meant 'sad', not said.


We are likely to be out there with Jerry. Have made a few trips out there and it's good desert riding. We bring an RV as well, and the three pomeranians. My kid is 18 and rides with us too.

Does anyone go ride Bradshaw Trail from there? Or do you all go west and up in the mountains instead of east?

Bradshaw trail

Chris weather looks to be sunny and in the mid 60's.
Possible rain Thursday and then we have a slight warming trend hopefully into the low 70's by the 1st.

Bradshaw trail would be a ride for a different time and camp out of a different place.
Like that glamis RV park. Bradshaw trail is just too far from Ocotillo it is on the other side of the Salton Sea.
Maybe we could do a trip this coming spring. But dont worry We will have plenty to explore in Ocotillo.

Jeff we will roll by your site to say Hi maybe even do a ride. We are camping close to where you will be at.
We have a big group of about eight rigs and about twenty people. Families, kids and some really good riders.

We will be riding Superstition - fish creek - grapevine/ culp valley - font's point/ milpas view point - slot canyon.
In other words all the cool stuff.

Yeah, it's probly 75 miles of road to get to the other side of Salton Sea, I didn't look at a map.

I have only been to Ocotillo on a greesticker bike, so having a plate will be interesting. Keep in mind I'll be riding the pig dualsport, Nick will have the litebike. My KTM got sold.

Nothing out there is too hard

As long as you are plated you are good!
it opens up areas that are legal to ride other then the OHV area.

Honestly the OHV area is the wasteland of the Anza borrego desert and the rest of the desert is a wonder to see and explore. Having a street legal vehicle opens up the true borrego desert!!
I use the term "street legal" loosely. I will be rolling my 2010 450 XC-W and yes it is street legal.

Anything that gets too gnarly you can just sit back and watch us hit things and maybe take some pictures!
The trails out there are doable on most any bike riding from place to place.
but there are also some technical spots and some big air opportunities.

You and I like the same stuff. Where is your group gonna be ? When do you arrive ? Like to come by and see what your ride schedule looks like and maybe do a day with you guys. Then I am heading to JV on Sunday (30) to do some riding with Catfish and Perry.

We love Bradshaw too. Have a trip scheduled in the new year. I am going to dry camp this time on the east end so we have gas out there. Some of our group will be at Cals KOA... some with me. Should be a great trip.

We'll b out there the 27th as per swmbo

Like that Johnson Valley split idea, but we'll do that after New Years, maybe MLK weekend? Usually stay up at Holly Rd, easier in and out , or in Borrego Springs.

Jeff, your area on satellite photo looks like we might sink in. Jerry, dunno about yours. ..stable? I was out there from the 15-19 and sunk in in an area I thought was safe. Had some buddies pull me out, very lucky. The diesel motorhomes can sink in, this got worse before it got better! We're about 34,000 lbs loaded


Conditions were ideal, even made it to the top of Blow Sand on my xr250, shot thru a lot of slot canyons.


Still a lot of deep sand - xr600 (Bessie) Butte Pass

The pic's

Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate!!
And a special thanks to the wives that came out to support us and play with us in the desert.
We had carne asada pot luck one night and some kick ass fireworks on New Years eve.

Always tell myself to get more camp ground pictures but I never do... Next time!!

We had a bit of a cold snap hit us this year. So the nights were a little chilly but the riding was great.
We got a good amount of rain Sunday night which made for perfect conditions for the last day of the year and the first day of this year.

Saturday's riders from the top of telephone butte at the truckhaven area



The mud arch



Sundays riders



We rode fish creek from Ocotillo wells to sandstone canyon
You can see the clouds crepping in that rained on us that night.





Sandsone canyon




After the rains Cory and I went out to play.









Cory





My son only 22 months and riding solo!!

Great pics Jerry... Most of our riding was south of 78... lots of fun in the mud hills, washes and Superstition... we had too many riders in our group to come crash your ride. Had guys and wives from RIDERS, TT, DBA and Cafe Husky.
Great times... good ridiing... bit of rain in the evening Sunday to knock down the dust !

Thank you Jerry, we had a great time. Nice group, some good trail riding fo-sho.

I'll post up some pix soon. And yes, riding south of the 78 is da-bomb. Last and only two times I have been to Ocotillo was on a greenstickie; a plate opens up a world of scenic enjoyment.
