We are doing a training day the Saturday BEFORE our normal second Sunday meeting May 9th. BUT Sunday May 9th is Mother’s Day so we are NOT meeting. Frank Raines OHV Park has camping available first come first serve, so we can grab some spots for Friday May 7th. Campsites are $30, 2 vehicles and 8 people are allowed per site with some restrictions.

I don’t really know. So one option is just pick a spot and make it work, or you can show up the day of and then camp with the dispersed site people.

Hey Dave,
Nice to meet you virtually. We also are new to this. We have been boating for many many years and currently live on our boat so somewhat used to making due. What is a "training day"? Is there a link that would let us know how to prepare etc.? We have a 2005 LX 470 that we are getting prepared.

Thanks,
Tom & Sara

OK for a stock T4R 4x4 with Cooper HTPs ( highway truck tire?
So likely Friday night dispersed camping will be ok. I’m not sure who will be camping so that’s a bit of an unknown. The meet up training time is 9am by the entrance and we will orangize from there. A “training day” will a chance to flex your rig, get some experience tackling some tough climbs and learning about picking lines. Frank Raines OHV is a playground to practice off road driving. A stock 4Runner will do ok, street tires will slip but you’ll get to see how much and in which situations.
Currently a group of us are in Baja and will be back soon so service has been spotty

The sign up is in the first post with further description and RSVP button. Either way just come as the rsvp isn’t quite as important as other trips

Sorry Dave. My rig is getting re-geared and I will not get it back in time. There's also a 200miles break in point for the differentials.
