Very tempting, but I'm saving up $$ and vacation time for a trip on March. I'm out



I've done a couple different driving schools in the last 25yrs, you're going to have a blast!

After rally school, comes a real highlight of the new year, King of the Hammers. I'm really looking forward to this one, it's considered as the toughest one day off road race in the world and the largest race in North America. I know at least two folks here are committed to going, and there's talk of some sort of off road trip either before or after the race, perhaps in Death Valley. Here's a teaser, https://youtu.be/Wel6Fxe8Tro

Alaska was great, two months of exploring and camping with friends, but that's one for the books now, it's time to start planning for the next adventure(s). First up is Vancouver Island. A friend and I have put together an off road route that ends up at a very remote, wilderness beach at the far Northern end of the island, but way of a few hundred miles of logging roads and trails. This trip is scheduled for the second weekend in October and should last about four or five days, with options to extend it further. Several folks have expressed interest in joining up, and I'm open to others. If you might be interested let me know. After that, planning has begun for fall/winter trips that include Montana for Xmas, the King of the Hammers race in Feb, Death Valley, Moab, the Mojave trail, and then Baja. Dates are to be determined, but KOH starts Feb 1st, otherwise no dates have been finalized, I'm waiting to hear back from some folks on what works for them, but I'm open if anyone wants to join in on the fun.............

I'm looking forward to it, the Vancouver Island trip is shaping up to be epic. I've got some routes laid out, I'm working on others, and when we catch up with my buddy Chris in Comox, were sure to have an adventure. He grew up on the North end of the island and knows plenty of remote, scenic camp sites, vistas, and places to explore. After Xmas, I've heard some interest in Death Valley and the Mojave trail before Baja. Great stuff is coming up..................

The Vancouver island trip was epic, with plenty of logging roads, beach time, sunny weather, and a huge three day storm. We had two vans (us and REF) a
BMW GS and a Toyota. While sitting out the storm, the next adventure began taking place in my head. At this point, I have several destinations in mind, but only one firm date so far. My goal is to visit Death Valley, run the entire length of the Mojave trail, spend a few days at the King of the Hammers race, then head for Baja. The race begins on Feb 1 and runs for a bit over a week, but I only plan to go for the last few days. The trophy trucks race on Thursday Feb 6th with the main race on Friday

https://ultra4racing.com/


Other than those dates, my schedule is open. REF will be in the area in the weeks prior, and is interested in a Death Valley trip, but he's on a slightly different schedule than I am, and wants to do it mid Jan, but that leaves a couple weeks prior to the Hammers to fill. Were trying to work it out, but in my perfect world, we would do Death valley just before the race, hit the race, then head to the Mojave trail after the race. REF will be in Baja by then, so I plan to catch up with him somewhere South of the border after the Mojave. This is all tentative, with the exception of the race dates though, and I'm willing to discuss alternate schedules if anyone wants to tag along.

A couple folks are confirmed for parts of the trip, a few others have expressed interest in all or part, but there's plenty of time to work it all out.
