Re: MadDaneCJ7 (Kasper) came to Calif from Denmark
Los Coyotes is about 1 hour from San Diego. It's about the best spot that close.
The place in the pictures (pinyon mountain) is a pretty easy trail. I made it through that squeeze with room to spare. My front axle is 61.25" wheel mount to wheel mount. Full Size axles would definitely push the limit. My friend has a Unimog that he couldn't get through there.
There are a bunch of places out in the desert east of San Diego (about 2 hours), but many are not as much rock crawling as desert hill climbs, ravines, ridges, etc.
Johnson Valley (ie. The hammers, outer limits, wrecking ball, etc) is about 3 hours from San Diego. It's really too hot to run from Jun-Aug, but is the best rock crawling anywhere around here. Your rig should be right at home there.
Moab is about a 12 hour drive, but is a must.
The rubicon and other sierra trails are about 11-12 hours as well.
Once you're here and settled in we'll have to head up to Johnson Valley.
