  1. I was just going to post a link to the meeting for Coral Canyon which they have apparently just opened for the Spring (mud) but both campgrounds are closed due to "TBD bathroom installations". Just wait until a month from now and it will be too dry to ride there. There won't be a new off-road park in SD county in my lifetime, it's a money grab. They also tripled the camping rates at Coral Canyon. I saw the bathrooms before they decided to close them and the problem was that they never took the trash out! There was literally five garbage cans worth of trash in and around one can. They wouldn't even bother to go over there. Your government dollars at work! In case you think I'm just being sarcastic, I spent the last 8 years of the last 10 years of my life watching the government waste your money at NAS North Island. People are literally coming there to sleep until the retirement check is authorized. I've gone round and round with them at Cleveland NF Descanso Ranger district for a couple of years now. They don't give a rat's ass about closing anything. Their closure for campfires is also expired. They're taking funds from OHV green and red sticker programs and not providing anything for it other than to buy themselves a new coffee maker and sit on their fat asses. Any excuse for a closure is great for their agenda. They recently upgraded (farmed out) the parking lot at Cedar Creek Falls which of course closed the connector to Eagle Peak road apparently permanently. They seem to have lots of money to install a camera there but won't lift their finger to repair any damage to the trails. It's much easier to close it. Don't get me started on Deer Park rd and Thing Valley to La Posta. I would recommend contacting somebody higher than Scott T. in the Descanso Ranger district to make these people do something other than apply for new grants to waste your money with. Here's the latest: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/cleveland/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD1166464
  2. That was quick. I knew I had seen that image before. 😃
  3. I figured someone here knows about this. I saw it on a restaurant doorway in San Ignacio a few days ago. Too funny! Is that Krug?

    Canyon Sin Nombre- Dec 2

    Looks fun! I'm headed out around 10ish tomorrow morning out that way around McCain on the Norden. Never ridden that area before so just checking out the easy parts if others want to join in.... Send pm if interested for details.
  5. Did somebody mention cribbage? 3rd generation player here. 😜. No DR for me on this one. It's too close to carry the good gear.
  6. I could be convinced to drive my car so favorite dog can join in. I can get there earlier to save spots and that would make more refreshing beverages available too. 🍻😉
  7. I can give a fairly recent report on the obvious loop around the Indian Flats (renamed) campground. The first part was narrow single-lane paved and/or groomed with scenery and zero traffic. When I got there I found the campground was closed due to the Arroyo Toads again (it shows open now). I continued to the northwest on the loop. That part is pretty easy dirt except for a couple ruts and a wee bit of sand. I was on a big bike so depends on your perspective. Easily doable with friends for all. Hope to see ya' all out there! 👍
  8. Posting up an unusual opening of Fred. It's been closed all year but can't get there until Saturday. Is there a storm they will blame it on? Post pics! Fred Canyon Road (16S08) Descanso/San Diego County Open For duration of storm
  9. I'm thinking of making this a 2-night campout with day 2 (Sun night ) in Idyllwild. I love that area and haven't explored everything yet. Marion mountain CG is awesome. 👍. Looking forward to this already! To be clear the date is November 4-5? The initial post is a bit misleading. I almost showed up next weekend. 😜
  10. Great ride. 👍 Thanks for joining Mike!
  11. I was thinking about taking the DR650 out tomorrow starting at Tecate' and heading towards Campo. This is a pretty fun ride if you haven't tried it before. It's pretty flat in most parts but a little bit of sand. There's a cool RR tunnel too. I was planning on continuing down to Shockey Road which has a neat little canyon in it. Probably taking off from Jamul around 10:00 Sunday the 24th. Send pm if interested. Bring cash for El Paso Mexican food on rtn trip via 94. John
  12. I'm a late starter on Sundays but here's my route. It's Nate's Grade/Wohlford/Ramona. PM if interested. Big bike friendly.
  13. If I'm reading this link correctly a TVIP is only required outside the "Free Zone" and Baja is entirely within that area so it would only be needed in the interior areas should you go that far. https://www.mexpro.com/blog/mexico-free-border-zone/
  14. I was interested right up until I saw a $499 ticket fee. 🙄
  15. I wasn't aware of the FMM requirement but I did find the website, it's free, and it can be done online here: https://www.inm.gob.mx/fmme/publico/en/solicitud.html There is an option for a passport card so I think it will be fine. 🙄 Edit: Don't be fooled by these a*hole entrepreneurs from Spain who will attempt to charge you $89 to submit your info to the correct website above! https://www.mexicofmm.com/
