There used to be a ton of places dependent upon what I was planning on doing. Unfortunately they are closing those areas day-by-day.
I used to go to a patch of desert out by the CA Aquaduct, out near Desert Center and on the way to Parker, AZ.
Lately the deal has been to Octillo Wells for my fun, and then some time in Anza Borrego when I want to go check out some neat scenary. All around Ocotillo are some VERY beautiful landscapes...
And then there's always Mexico! I'll take off for a run through the Compadre Trail any time (around checkpoint 2 from the Baja 500 and other races). Of course, some beach camping is nice, where you can take the truck on the beach...
Wasn't there some big thingy about the land the PRIMM course runs on? I thought that was going to become some sort of "endangered land" turned "Klinton Airport for the Endangered" or something like that?
You are right but, the latest I hear is that the airport has been shifted to Ivanpah valley which is just accross the border in CA and bordering the Mojave Protection Area. The Eco-Nazis are going ballistic.
Personally, I'd like to see the Mint course come back to racing. it's mostly northwest of town.
