    Who\'s up to go to Hollister Nov. 22&23???

    My Friends and I are trying to put together a little wheeling trip to Hollister Thanksgiving weekend the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving (22/23). We are going down to Hollister Friday getting there areound 12pm wheel all day, then bbq/drink friday night, and when we get around to getting up the next day we are going to wheel all Sat. If anyone is up to go let me know. We are going reguardless but the more the marrier. You can e-mail me or just come up and say high down there. I drive a 1980 K20 4" lift with 35" BFG MT's, my truck is silver and blue. My friend will be down there with me, he drives a 1988 GMC Jimmy, it's stock right now because he just got it and it's dark blue and silver with a Kayline softtop. Let me know if you are going to go so we could possiably meet up. We are still waiting on the weather, but if all is good we are going for sure. Look forward to seeing you there.

    If it aint Chevy it aint worth anything.

    Conf80,

    I'm looking at my calendar and the Friday/Sat after Thankgiving is actually the 23rd & 24th? Are those the days you are reserving?

    I'd be interested in making another Hollister trip....I did the BlazerFest back in July and had a great time. I am just starting out with my Blazer and off-roading, so I don't have much in the way of recovery equipment, etc...... Do either of you guys have a winch?

    I could probably pick up a few necessities (tow strap, hi lift jack, etc) so I wouldn't be totally helpless, but it would be good peace-of-mind knowing there were some other "experienced" and more well-prepared folks there too....! [​IMG]

    Yea, sorry it is the 23, 24th. We dont have a winch but have always been able to get each other out when stuck. Our friend got stuck in the big mudpit down there for a whole night, and he's got a 10" lift on 39.5 TSL's. They fina;lly mananged to get him out. So I highly doubt you would get stuck to the point of needing something we dont have. Just take it kinda easy. My friends blazer is stock and he has done everything he wanted to last weekend. But it's up to you. Later

    Just did a Yahoo Weather forcast for Hollister (Salinas is actually the closest place it found) Here it is:

    Friday...mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Highs in the
    60s. Chance of rain 30 percent.

    Saturday...rain likely. Lows 40s to lower 50s...highs upper 50s
    and 60s.

    Sunday through Tuesday...a chance of rain each day. Lows
    upper 30s to around 50...highs mid 50s to mid 60s.

    .....Looks like there will be plenty of mud available....nice and slippery and gooey! [​IMG]

    Are you guys hard-core? Is this going to stop you....or is this rain going to be part of the fun?

    Jeremy / Dan / etc,

    What is the deal with getting into Hollister? Have you reserved spots under the name "ColoradoK5" or is it just a "free for all"?

    I was just curious how I will know which campsite you guys are at when I get to the Rangers Station.


    I got the hardtop installed, some new greaseable bushings (ORD), and I am going to 4WPW tomorrow for a Hi-Lift jack, tow straps, fire extinguisher, and some tow rings. I want to be at least a LITTLE more prepared than I was last time.....when all I had was a sleeping bag and some beer! [​IMG]

    Well like I said I drive a 1980 Chevy K20 Blue and Silver with a 4" lift and 35 BFG M/T. So when you see my truck down there just come up and say hi. I will be looking for blazers etc. Yea Hollister does not reserve campgrounds. We are hopefully leaving here at 9am tomarrow morning. I live in the Bay Area and it's about an hour and a half drive so we should be getting that around 10:30am. I am haveing some problems with my 14b ff so we may have to make some stops on the way down. I am leaking gear oil so I gotta make sure I dont run it dry. But I am looking forward to seeing you all down there. Later

    If it aint Chevy it aint worth anything.
