    This is a Monthly meet-up the second Tuesday of each month @ The Break Room in Shingle Springs, CA. Everyone is welcome! Our events are social, family friendly, with the goal of teaching essential overlanding skills you will need on the trail or while you travel! We conduct training/practice sessions (see below), frequently have guest speaker subject matter experts, and also share DIY how-to's to create your own kit, schedule monthly overland trips or trail runs,! Of course, we also have fun. Stop on by!
    Meeting starts at 1900 hrs so if you want dinner and drink please get there prior to that. Order as you enter the restaurant, meeting is in a room to the rear.
    Please contact @Kent R on our forums for more information!
    The Sierra Foothills Overlanders have also adopted the Long Canyon OHV trail in the El Dorado NF, we conduct 4 cleanups per year with one overnight. For more information contact @DaveD on the forum.[​IMG]

    I would love to attend one of these meet-ups, but it's just way too far for me to drive. Maybe once I retire...

    October 16, 2018 meeting recap

    GENERAL DISCUSSION:
    Update sign in-sheet: 20 members signed in
    Member introductions: Several new faces; welcome!
    Any new ham licenses: None.
    New OLB members: One – welcome!
    Youth program - Denise gave a great update on her youth program and passed around a sign-up sheet for the Beta test she wants to conduct. So, if you have kids that want to be a part of the program please contact Denise. We are in the very early stages of setting up an OLB/SFO camp out at Prairie City next year. This event will cover lots of training for adults and kids. Dennis will be reporting more on this in the future.

    Run reports -
    OLB Rally West - talked about the event and showed pictures of camp and the trail runs. Consensus from all who attended is we will go back!
    Jeep Fest Pismo Beach - Dave showed his pictures and talked about his experience there. Sounds like a great event.
    Laurel Lakes trip - Jim showed pictures and a video, all that attended thought it was a great trip. The main complaint was no fires allowed. (We need to find a place to have a campfire soon for Mirek!!)

    PRESENTATIONS:
    Jesse Stein from Hangtown Fire Control gave a very informative talk about the differences between dry chemical and clean agent fire extinguishers.
    Remember we need a topic for next month’s meeting, suggestions welcome.

    EDUCATION AND TRAINING:
    Reno Tire Repair - Kent and Tom showed some pictures from the event. SFO tire repair practice - It will be in January 2019.
    Newbie off-road driving practice - Klinton reported on how the practice session will go, if you’re interested in helping, please contact Klinton.
    Klinton is also taking on the role of New Member training coordinator, working as a mentor to make sure all of our new members are up to speed with overlanding. I will put a list of topics I think are important and please email me with more and I’ll add them.

    TRIP PLANNING:
    Death Valley - Trip was talked about; currently we have 14 going with several that are maybe. Next week the pre-trip information sheet will be emailed to those going.
    Baja 1000 with Chris S. - Discussed, main topic was how cool it will be to see the action.
    Remember November meeting is when we start working on next year’s trips. Mirek wants to camp where there are trees. I am planning the Mojave Road trip. Jim - maybe the Anza Borrego State Park? Long term planning for a trip to the Continental Divide (NM to Canada), this is a work in progress.

    NEXT MEETING:
    November 20 - speaker or training TBD

    Reminder that we need raffle prizes for the Christmas Party. Please get them to Kent, Lucy, or Kevin by Dec. 12th so the raffle can be organized in advance like last year.

    Death Valley Trip 2018 - Lessons Learned
    Kent R.
    • Too long of days. Personal preference would be departing camp at 0900 and in camp by 1500-1600.
    • Amber lights to the rear and front are awesome! A survey of our club showed several members already have these lights. The ones to the rear seemed to be the most important.
    • Rally Point is important for RSVP and updating information during the planning stages. If you don’t RSVP it makes it hard for organizers and you could miss updated info or be left behind.
    • Bring enough supplies for yourself. Food, water, fuel.
    • Only one spotter. We’ll do a spotter clinic next year.
    • Mobile radios work the best, portables have a very limited range. Get your ham license If you can’t for some reason, get a GMRS mobile radio and portable.

    Is the December meeting open to newbies, or would it be better to start with the January meeting?
