Heading to SoCal Fest 2012 in Calico

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Time for SoCal Fest 2012. Due to issues with the USFS and the company that operates the campgrounds were were unable to have our event in Big Bear like we usually do. As an homage to the SoCal Chapter’s first official event SoCal Fest 2012 will be in Calico, just East of Barstow, CA. Calico is a great area that has something for everybody to do.

Unfortunately I was unable to take the big Jeep to the event so I’ve got the little black 1996 XJ with me. I’ll lead either an easy or moderate trail tomorrow, we’ll see how things work out. As event coordinator I’ll make sure everybody has a good time at the event.

All events must start somewhere, and when you leave your home in the South Bay of Los Angeles at 5:00 PM they generally start with traffic:

I’ll try to remember to update this at the end of the day tomorrow with some photos from the event.
