    Overland Expo WEST 2019: Official Thread

    We will be heading out on the afternoon of the 16th from San Diego. Our new trailer is too big (19 ft) for the on-site camping so we will be staying at Pine Grove campground instead.

    2019 Desert Rendezvous: Official Thread

    It is on BLM land and not far from where we annually clean up the shooting range on the other side of the train tracks. I am hoping to do a little shooting tomorrow afternoon.

    2019 Desert Rendezvous Trail Run - Canyon Sin Nombre, Arroyo Seco del Diablo (and Dropoff) - Saturday

    The last canyon (between the dropoff and Fish Creek Wash) is a little narrow, but you shouldn't have any real issues.

    Some segments of that route are fine for all vehicles. But Heart Attack Hill has been called the deadliest dropoff in Southern California.

    2019 Desert Rendezvous Trail Run - Canyon Sin Nombre, Arroyo Seco del Diablo (and Dropoff) - Saturday

    So, to add a little incentive to come on this trip, a little more info. I am a State-licensed geologist and I will be providing a description/discussion of the great geologic features this trip will be travelling through. This route crosses an active fault (the Elsinore fault) with significant...

    Daedelus, More than happy to help a new person get the hang of things. I watched the video you linked and I don't remember big rocks in the dropoffs. Check this video: If you keep it in first gear, low range it should crawl down without too much trouble.

    Heading southeast out of camp along the railroad line is a possibility. I will check the route when I come in on Thursday and we can discuss it at the drivers' meeting on Saturday.

    2019 Desert Rendezvous Trail Run - Canyon Sin Nombre, Arroyo Seco del Diablo (and Dropoff) - Saturday

    Well, it's been more than 40 years since I was a novice off-roader so my judgement is probably skewed. The vast majority of this route is relatively standard dirt trails in desert washes. The toughest section is going down the dropoff, which is actually two dropoffs. These can cause...

    Also for reference, in 1996 I went down the dropoff in my '95 LR Discovery, towing a small trailer. I had my three sons in the back seat. They thought it was great. My wife had a slightly different opinion!

    Now that I have a "general" location to work with, I volunteer to lead a run on Friday. Trip will leave pavement (S2) and enter Canyon Sin Nombre. Then will proceed to Arroyo Seco del Diablo, go down the Diablo Dropoff, enter Fish Creek Wash, and return to camp.
