Bashford's 4 Camp/Soak/Ride/Hike
FIRST TIMERS PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE RSVP! If you're able to get there and set up camp by 4 you'll have some sunlight. Then we'll all head over to the American Legion in Bombay Beach which is very close by for $14 steak dinner. • What we'll do LEAVING FROM MY PLACE: 7183 CAMINO DEGRAZIA, SAN DIEGO 92111 AT 12PM ON FRIDAY. Campground address: 10590 Hot Mineral Spa Rd, Niland, CA 92257 My number:[masked] Don't forget swimwear and hiking attire. Hike is moderate, to easy, just 4 miles round trip. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Round 2 of desert camping near the Salton Sea. Joshua Tree National Park on Saturday morning, Lost Horse Mine, ride to Keys View and return to camp to soak in the hot tubs around sunset before it gets cold. Others may wish to visit Salvation Mountain/East Jesus/Slab City (live music on Saturday nights at the Range), the mud pots near Sonny Bono Bird Refuge, or just chill out around the pool all day. The resort is low key, not super fancy, but well maintained. Temperatures around 65-75 during the day and drop to low 50s at night. Down or comparable sleeping bags are recommended. Layers are encouraged. Come to a M&G to get answers, and I love lending gear or helping you shop. LOVE. IT. • What to bring Temps will be low 70s during the day and can dip to 40 overnight, so be prepared. Bring swimwear, for the hot tubs and hiking shoes if you like to hike to Lost Horse Mine with me on Saturday. If there is a car camper among us, let me know. • Important to know Food is available across the road at Glamis North. Gas is close in both directions. Do some research and come to the Meet & Greet on the 29th with ideas and questions. Camping fees will be collected after we get there, 10-15 per night. Dress warm.

    What we're about

    OUR PURPOSE: Camping from our motos, mostly within an hour or two of San Diego. That way, if you have a job, like me, you can still get out for a little adventure every once in a while. We go to county & state parks, Salton Sea area, Anza Borrego, Joshua Tree and similar destinations that may seem just out of reach for only a day trip. Typically ride to the base camp Friday, set up camp & have dinner, Saturday rides that includes a lunch stop (and snack/water stops), and figure out what dinner might look like. When there are multiple experienced 'guides/mentors' we will do multiple things like maybe a dual sport, dirt road type thingy AND a road ride.

    I WILL ENSURE THAT WE INCLUDE EVERYONE AND RIDE AT A PACE WHERE ALL FEEL SAFE.

    Sunday can be a group ride home (or to Breakfast!) or sometimes we leave at will or in small groups. There will always be guidance or escort for anyone that just wants to follow without worry of navigating. Riding, camping under our beautiful skies, and the adventure that comes with both. and did I mention enough about food?

    WHO SHOULD JOIN: New riders, experienced riders, aspiring riders, and sherpas! Anyone that rides a motorcycle and wants to camp or just hang out at our 'Meet & Greets' to learn more about their bikes and themselves. Camping is our focus, with emphasis on riding safety and just being nice to each other, our neighbors, and our riding environment. I also encourage any non-riders that just want to hang out and camp with us to join. Pick up trucks and vans are very useful for bringing some niceties along like coolers and E-Z ups. Join up and I will endow you with an honorary title of 'MotoSherpa'. And, no promises, but your camping fees will probably be absorbed by the grateful riders.

    Just look at our photos; motorcycles + camping = smiles. Dig it.
