    POLL DECISION..

    OFFICAL TRAIL RUN IS Oct 13 - 15 (3 days, 2 nights)
    PRE-RUN IS Sept 30 - Oct 1 (2 days, 1 night)


    Who:
    Any and all Toyota owners in the SoCal area.

    What: Trail riding, very short hiking, and enjoying some local attractions.

    When: See poll for dates but feel free to join up any day for a partial trip or day run (meet us at one of the camp spots).

    Where: Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (inclusive of Ocotillo Wells).

    How: With our reliable Toyotas and communication radios.

    Why: Because why not? It's always a good time putting faces to the names you've heard of.
    __________

    I usually like to lead smaller runs of a maximum of 7 rigs because they're easier to manage but since this would be an opening run for the season I'd like to try something bigger. I'm not thinking of any cap yet but I would love to have volunteers that are also familiar with the area assist in leading. I'm thinking at least 1 leader for roughly every 7 rigs also. We'll most likely be doing primitive camping one night and developed camping another.

    Furthermore, especially depending on how diverse and large the group is, we may have to break up the activities into 2 or 3 groups on Saturday; some might want to do short hikes or some might want to do more trail riding.

    Some other ideas: poker run, giveaways, etc.

    Thread has been cross-posted on Tundras.com, TacomaWorld.com, and Toyota-4Runner.org.

    Can we vote for a different date? - There are already other epic trips planned the same dates that I am committed to.

    Like maybe Sept. 15-17th :)

    A little of this and a little of that. Its pretty run of the mill.
    We have a small group heading out to Anza mid September. If you wanna get out there and prerun some trails before you take folks out for this trip, it'd be a good opportunity. If you're interested, let me know.

    Oh, and you should move that first weekend and come with us. We're doing a Southern Utah Traverse Sep 28 - Oct 1. That trip is going to be epic! A classic long range overlanding expedition.
