San Jose - looks like no new Nor Cal's for a while. Hope you all are still active.
Us south bay folk are around. I've noticed that its really hard getting frequent 4x4 meetups in the bay area setup for whatever reason. It seemed like it was easier 5 or 6 years ago to get interested people together to talk out trip ideas, pull some topo maps/laptop with Gaia and pick a place. These days it just isn't as easy to make it happen.

Guess it's buzzie times. We are working on getting our rig together and would be into a group trip. We drive a Jeep cherokee trailhawk and are getting a smittybilt trailer, so overnight would be awesome. Let's keep in touch. If you are up for a trip in the fall we just might be up and running by then.

Awesome! I've heard a lot of positive things about the trailhawks, that should be a fun little car! Have you had a lot of experience with it off road or stuff yet?
If you haven't... doing a quick run down to Big Sur for a day trip and exploring some of the dirt roads down there could be a nice mellow introduction to some of that. My partner and I are planning on a 2 truck day trip once we get some more parts in the mail and installed on her truck... I can send ya a msg or something if you're interested.

Good chance of something working out in the fall on my end.

That sounds great. We haven't taken her off-off road. Some small rocky roads in the Mendocino forest and we took her off main trail on Mt Shasta over the 4th weekend. Would love to try her out in other local places and Big Sur sounds great. What trucks are you two driving? Definitely message me.

Yup some good folks out there with some awesome rigs.
Yep! Its also neat seeing how other people solve similar problems .

Danville - Just joined
Welcome! Danville eeh? I have fam up in that area and I spent a lot of time riding bikes around Mt Diablo, great place!

Would love to try her out in other local places and Big Sur sounds great. What trucks are you two driving? Definitely message me.
Totally!! Are you down for big day trips and coffee?
for trucks... I have a wrangler and my partner has a 2wd GMC Sierra that is surprisingly good on crappy dirt roads and mild trails. I have some general details on them in my sig and I've started doing a build thread to kind of outline what we've done with em.
