What we're about

The plan is to have a camping/off-road excursion as often as possible!

It will either be locally or afar (always open to new options), so expect to see new things and places! Some places we will go to will have dedicated/reserved campsites for us, but most places we will be doing dispersed camping off an OHV road out in the middle of nowhere. (roughing it)

That said, every place we go to will be accessible by vehicle, so just want to clarify that this is not a backpacking group. Off-Road Capable RVs & Overland Vehicles welcome. Off-Road Capable vehicles are typically required to get to our event sites. All campers MUST have ALL the needed equipment.

Everyone is welcome to do their own thing during the day, there are no activity requirements during the trip... please just enjoy yourself out in the wild, be safe, forget about the daily stress, and take in the sunshine.

Most trips will be $5, not some ridiculous fee that makes no sense. It would be free, but since MeetUp charges me a monthly service fee to be a host, I am just trying to break even; not make a profit off you like some of the other group hosts out there.

I look forward to seeing you guys out in the wilderness!

Please let me know if you have any questions

LET'S GO EXPLORE DEATH VALLEY

Death Valley

$5.00

As the weather is finally cooling off, I felt it was a great time for us to get out to Death Valley and explore the area; as it has everything from old mines to hot springs to sprawling mountains.

This trip will be open to anyone, as the campsite will be relatively easy to get to and from; no special vehicle requirements. RVs & towed CAMPERs welcome!

This is dispersed camping/boondocking; no amenities provided (no toilets, tables, running water, electricity, or trash service). We are going to have to bring everything in, and set it all up, then pack everything out when we are done, including all trash.

Weather will be APPROX. 70/60s day & in the 40/50s night.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PLAN:
Friday;
We will meet in MOJAVE at the MOBIL GAS STATION (15190 Sierra Highway, Mojave, CA 93501) at 10am. Then head out as a group at 10.30a. I will then lead the way to the campsite area, then once there we can set up our tents/living area and relax.

Saturday
I plan on going out to explore the area, I want to check out a mine or two, and see what other cool things I can find. Anyone is welcome to join me, although for this part you will need a 4x4/AWD for this just to be safe on those roads/trails.

Sunday
We will pack up/clean the campsite and head out whenever everyone is ready (you are welcome to leave earlier if needed).
