    I don't suppose it's too early to start talking about the whens and wheres of this, eh?

    Last year at Pismo it was great fun. I'd suggest somewhere where camping is near to a nice place to 'wheel (even for weenie-wheelers like me).

    Cool lets start planing!! Mabie start with when then were??
    Hows August? Or June? Mabie the weekend AFTER 4th of July?? Anyone ever camp at Hollister? What about in the Sierras, out by Bass lake or Shaver lake?? I guess it would depend on were everyone is comming from so we can find a center point! Keep the ideas flowing!!

    Isn't Hollister a bit hot durring summer(june-aug)?? Not exactly how hot it gets there. I don't mine coming from a place that gets 115 during summers, but others may.

    Hollister, Pismo, it's still hellofa long way for me, but then again i don't do this every summer.

    oh yea, it's good to start early since a lot(if not all) of state parts require reservations.

    Also, if anyone is interested. I am doing a run across(mexicali-san felipe) what was the laguna salada in baja the weekend of april 21. It'll probably be a saturday thing, if nothing breaks then camp out in san felipe. Email me if interested(arqdennis@eudoramail.com)

    Any time is good for me.

    Hey Burt4x4, remember last year we tried to do the weekend after the 4th of July, then kept putting it off until August??? LOL!

    Hollister sounds good if there's somewhere to camp nearby. Fort Hunter Liggett might be fun because they have their "Primitive Camp Ground" and a lot of land, but I'm not sure about 'wheeling opportunities (Steve S., You out there???)...

    Hollister doesn't get that hot. We maybe get 6 days total a year that it gets over 100. We have a lot of diffrent places to camp. And 4 wheel. Hollister hills,Clear Creek, Panoche hills & Tumuy hills. All within a hour of each other.

    We're trying to make it sort of annual, but... I think that it should be in or close to California... &lt;GRIN&gt;
