Great meet up today! Thanks everyone for coming out! And a special thanks to Sean @AzzyRnr for his job presenting on hard-wired electrical systems for our rigs. I am really excited for the year to come and the plans we have in the works.

We have an update for our Anza Borego trip which will be February 24-28th. Keep and eye out for the Rally Point and we’ll post a note when it’s up! This is gonna be a good trip!

Dave, is the Anza Borego trip going to conflict with the pending re-scheduled NPS Death Valley clean-up, which was scheduled for this upcoming weekend and post-boned by the NPS? I know Kent was working hard to re-schedule the cleanup accordingly and the dates remain pending. Thanks!

Some members had heard the NPS work day was going to be Presdient’s Day Weekend, the weekend before.

for the yearly calendar are there tentative dates? I need to look at calendars at work to schedule time.
I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to say "Hi!" at the meetup, We'll have to rectify that at the next one. :D

Thanks Dave! I soooo wanted to join Sunday but it was either that or my daughters 1st birthday. As much as I love overlanding and camping, I didn’t want to have to do it full time out of necessity . I’ll definitely keep an eye on the calendar and can’t wait to join some of these! Is there any tentative timeline for the Tahoe snow day yet?

Yes it is, we just posted the rally point for Anza Borrego Feb 24-27th. You can find it using the link a couple posts back or go to the calendar and see it there.

Likely Saturday 5th of February. It will depend on finding a good snow trail, originally we were looking at the Mormon Emmigrant Trail but they have closed it this year. So perhaps Corral Hollow or another up there.
