Awesome! Welcome! Looking forward to meeting you as well. We’ll be meeting on the 5th as you know, we’ll also be doing a very intro session on HAM radio there as well. You’ll meet some great folks there for sure.

I did the Mojave back in Feb. i wrote a story about it if you’d like to read how it went for us.

Keep us posted of any Orange County meet ups that might happen, please
The OB Meetup in OC is the first Saturday of the month. I know many are going to the 2019 Adventure Expo and vehicle show. It’s in San Juan Capistrano this Saturday. Myself included. I also heard there is a local (not OB related) meetup happening at the Toyota dealer in RSM. Not sure on the hours though but I do know it’s also Saturday am.

The next monthly OB meetup (April 6th) will feature a map reading class. Understanding maps and all the important details of a map, how that information relates to a compass, finding your location on a map, giving a grid position, and more.
Digital maps are great and we all use them. But it’s good to have a skill set that is not reliant on power or gps. I also think it will make your digital map experience better. Going to be a great class! See you there.

Are the meet ups always at the same location?
Yes sir, first Saturday of Month in Laguna Hills, CA at Steelhead Coffee from 8am - 11am. We tried moving it around but it causes way too much confusion. Consistency has lead to significant growth of the meetup.

Does anyone have info on a general page for OC Overland Bound? Thinking is going out weekend of 5/10 to Barstow/Black Mountain range- check out cool stuff, nothing overly hard - old miners cabin/“Tonka Town”/Petroglyphs/“Military crash site etc. Thanks in advance F0EAFAA5-34AE-46DC-9534-D320CB7BD3F6.jpeg
