What we're about

Land Ops is a one-of-a-kind off road navigation and radio communication group.

Our outings are called "ops" and they are all about TEAMWORK. These are choreographed exercises that involve two or more teams navigating an unknown course, sometimes even at night. Teams report to a net control station within the region and find their way by acquiring a series of hidden caches with special instructions.

Land Ops is like NOTHING you've ever seen before.

The teams sychronize their movement as they progress through the exercise that takes them on adventures into the unknown.

Our main challenge categories include;

Off Road Driving | Navigation | Radio & Signal Communications
Vehicle Recovery | Night Ops | Search and Rescue Drills
Other tasks may include hiking, rappelling, real search and rescue ops and drone applications.

Many of our members are licensed ham radio operators. We practice emergency radio communications and search and rescue support roles.

Land Ops Meetup membership is free. Members are required to RSVP to attend and sign liability and film/photo waivers in order to participate.

San Bernardino Mountains Meet&Greet/Mini Op/Poker Run

Old City Creek Road Rendevous

We are going to mix it up this trip with a Meet & Greet to welcome visitors to the club and to hold a Poker Run to explore the Old City Creek Road along the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains. The meetup location is off of Hwy 330 on the way to Running Springs, with the turn off about 2.5 miles past the Forest Service Fire Station. We will have a Meet & Greet meeting and then depart on the trail to have some fun and explore a trail that many have never explored. Perfect opportunity to get to know Land Ops and your 4x4 vehicle.
