Technically, SLO is south of Bakersfield, so it IS part of the SoCal Chapter. Big Sal (aka SPORTY XJ) is out that way in Los Alamos.

Oh man... that sucks. Have you ever BEEN to San Louis Obispo? I was hoping we didn't have to claim that place. :moon:

Hey, at least I can wheel out there :D

And SLO doesn't suck due to normal things that make it suck. It's just a BORING ass town, NOBODY knows how to drive up there, and it's FULL of latte sipping fairy's

We should have a North 805 run.
Some weekend when it's not triple digits I like going over High Mountain, run the Garces Wilderness trail at the top, then down to Pozo/Turkey Flats and the Las Chichis trail followed by Pine Mountain with the Stair steps from the La Panza side. More moderate stuff could be done for stockers. Or does anybody have any other favorites in the SLO area. There's the Big Rocks trails through Rock Front Ranch off the 166 that's in SLO county, though it's just out of Santa Maria, for challenging stockers.

that would be pretty cool. i havent been out to Pozo yet but i've heard the stair steps are pretty nuts

Hey Twisted! RobertF, myself (Jason), and JuryrigJalopy (Ken) all live in Santa Barbara...with SportyXJ between you in SLO and us here maybe we could do a run sometime soon? RobertF knows his trails, and my rig, so I'm down for wherever he wants to wheel.

I just moved to Oceano. I posted up in the Sierra chapter and only got one response. Seems like its kind of the area neither chapter wants :(

GauchoMD
August 12th, 2008, 13:29
Dude, its not that nobody wants that area, there just arent as many members in certain areas between the Sierra Chapter and SoCal chapter...at least not active members. Anything South of Bakersfield is technically SoCal Chapter. Even us in Santa Barbara are pretty isolated from most of the SoCal members, the majority of which live in LA and San Diego. We can always get a group together to go wheeling in our neck of the woods...

By the way: Ken=Santa, KG=JuryRigJalopy. And don't count on me planning on going on a run. I am a fulltime student, work, and focus more on my aquatic hobbies more than jeeping, not that I wont go, I am just not in the position financially to commit to anything. In the coming years this school will pay off, then I will be able to play with ya'll more often.

I'm 805... about as far south 805 you can get. And thats only half the year; the rest of the year I'm 310.

But my cell phone is 818 to ensure I confuse everyone.

Hey John I tried to call you a couple of times the other weekend, when you were heading up to Hungry Valley, about wheeling Miller that Saturday morning. I guess with the tent malfunction it wasn't meant to be!
Next time your'e on the mainland for a weekend, post up and we 805'ers should stir up some dust!

I just moved from Atascadero and worked in SLO. DAMN does SLO have the hottest spoiled rich chicks or what... SLO is bad ass in my opinion. Plenty of places to wheel in pozo and such, just nothing too estreme. Most people have no idea what the stair steps are and they are pretty tough. Proabley the toughest trail in SLO county...

Absolutely!

I haven't gone hands free yet so my cell phone sees very little use now. Sorry I missed the calls, at the end of the night I was just exhausted and crashed.

September will be busy getting the Jeep ready for Moab but I will need a shakedown run before I go.

No i used to live in Atascadero, Just moved from there a few months ago. Your jeep looks farmiliar. You used to have a big green Monster "M" on the side? I dont think you would recognize mine. I worked in SLO and rarely drove it on the highway to Templeton or Paso. Wish i knew you lived there we could have gone to POZO. I didnt know any other XJ drivers around the area so never got to go wheelin with people.

TwistedcaB
August 19th, 2008, 12:13
well i never had one on the side i dont think... hadone on the back window... before that window got.. annihilated on a trail haha. so ur livign in portland now? damn haha

hmm well what kind of axles you got and what kind of lift you running? You know of any other people with xj's in SLO county? I think there are a couple more people in Templeton just not sure they are on here. Once i get my axles swapped im thinking of taking a trip down that area just to visit and do some hardcore wheelin.

TwistedcaB
August 30th, 2008, 00:16
well i have the stock axles Dana 30/35 with a Rustys 4.5" (measures almost 6)
i know 2 people in Templeton with XJ's and and a couple others in SLO county. how long till u get ur axles swapped?

RobertF
August 30th, 2008, 11:38
Hey TwistedcaB,
Next weekend if you want I could run you through some of the Pozo/Turkey Flats trails, your'e only like 20 minutes from them.

01 XJ, If you want to go we could meet up in Arroyo Grande, and go over High Mountain to meet TwistedcaB in Pozo

Big Sal, any interest?
It's 100miles for me up to Arroyo Grande where I'm hitting the dirt on High Mountain, at least 50 for you, it maybe just a easy trail run for stockers, but hey, theyr'e XJ's!

GauchoMD is out of town this weekend, but I'll run it by him when he gets back.

I'd go right now but the wife and I got work this weekend.

TwistedcaB
August 30th, 2008, 16:07
man i'd love to have to see if i can get the money for gas.. maybe have a friend come along and have him pay haha. what i usually do when i cant afford it haha. i've only been to Pozo once ( not wheelin ) so might be kinda hard to describe a place to meet haha

Smittty9785
August 31st, 2008, 17:31
it is a sweet place to go wheelin. There is a jeep only trail at the top of the mountain that RobertF is talking about. Once you get into SLO you can take Tank Farm road all the way out to Lopez lake. Once you hit lopez lake you take a right, right before the sign., follow that all the way through. At the top of the mountail you can take a left or a right, left takes your to a campsite and right takes you into pozo at the rangers station. But right before the right or left turn marks there will be a little slope you go down to the right. take that for like 100 feet and you will see a sign that says SLO 4 WHEELERS. Its not a crazy trail but there is one spot that is kinda sweet. I took mine out there when i had a 4.5" lift locked rear on 31's and still had a little trouble getting up. Some big ass rocks... you should go, if i still lived down there i would be heading along with you guys. its beautiful up there especially this time of year... My axles right now are taken apart all i need to do is get some chevy flat top knuckles, spindles, caliper brackets and all the brake hardware for the front and rear. Once that is done ill be ready to go anywhere. well almost...

Il's called the Garces Wilderness 4x4 Trail, cherry-stemming into, you guessed it, the Garces Wilderness.

I haven't run it by GauchoMD yet.
Big Sal's got some work to do on the rig and regrettably can't make it.
01 XJ? Want to go get some dust on your rig?

GauchoMD
September 4th, 2008, 12:13
Can't make it, just got back from NYC mid this week and have a wedding (I'm best-man so can't miss it) this weekend... I thought we were shooting for later in September?

September 4th, 2008, 22:12

Saturday is good for me.
Santa Margarita would be a good place to meet. Take the 101 south to the 58 east (El Camino Real). Just on the east side of the 101, the 58 has some truck parking on the south side of the 58, alongside the railroad tracks. This would be a good place to meet. I would meet up in Greater Down Town Santa Margarita (that's a joke) at the gas station/tire store on the corner of El Camino Real and Encina Ave. but last time I was through, it was being remodeled.
I'll PM you my numbers.

RobertF
September 5th, 2008, 00:35
so whats the plan and what trails ( if you know the names )

I was thinking the Pine Mountain trail (minus the stair steps) to get you warmed up, and then the Las Chichies trail (has two big rock outcrops, not tities) for as moderate a trail as unlocked d30/35's are going to do. We could run up High Mountain after that to look at the begining of the Garces Wilderness trail, but I don't think you would tackle that trail open.
Do you have a CB?

TwistedcaB
September 5th, 2008, 06:37
allright that sounds good. the truck parkign is just off the free way right. i think i know what your talking about.

ok those trails sounds good thats where a couple of guys i know go.

and yeah i have a CB
