RUN #2 - PIRATE RUN (Barbecue Man)

This is a game run with a PIRATE THEME…AARRRRGGG, so dress up you and/or your rig. There will be $200 in raffle tickets to be won. The run will pay a visit to Barbecue Man, but to get there, we will take you through notches and mud hills testing the articulation of everybody’s vehicle. We will do optional difficult notches that require fully locked axles testing your vehicles capabilities and driving skills. Finally, we will return to Blu In to enjoy a fun evening. This is a moderate run with experience strongly recommended.

RUN #4

We’ll start out going over to Devil’s Slide followed by Shell Reef. From there we’ll head over to the Pumpkin Patch, taking a break to look around. Time and size of group permitting, we’ll wind our way over to the 4x4 Training Facility (Obstacle Park) and let everybody try a few of the courses. The last stop will be back at camp. Most of this run is very easy washes and gentle rolling trails and will allow newer people to get a feel of where things are. At the obstacle course, everybody will be on their own to try their limits.

  • Drivers' meeting 8:45 AM / Run starts at 9:00 AM
  • Led by Josh Epstein, Hemet Jeep Club
RUN #5

This run follows San Felipe Wash to the rocky and sandy hill climb from The Cove to the top of Blow Sand Hill. From there it’s off to more rocks and sand at Devil’s Slide. The next stop is Shell Reef to play in some notches and mud hills, testing the articulation of everybody’s rigs. Finally, we will return to camp. There will be a few areas to test your rig, but there are bypasses.

  • Drivers' meeting 9:15 AM / Run starts at 9:30 AM
  • Led by Alan Michaud, VFW Ramona Post
