No, we haven't teleported back to the 60's.......yet. On another forum :)D) we were talking about a desert bloom photography run. http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/socal-region/32145-fjc-photography-9.html#post859345

So, I'm proposing the following:

Ok, here is the finalized thread for a day of wheeling and pictures. This is a new thread to pick up where we left off in the Photography thread.

Saturday, March 15, 2008, run to Anza-Borrego.

I will make this for March 15th for those that wanna do a local thing instead of the weekend Glamis trip. Don't let this sway you from the Glamis trip! It's my birthday, I wanna go wheeling (aka get stuck so one of you can pull me out again), and Mrs FJDave and I NEED (read - DESPERATELY NEED) a little time off. So far, we have:

Edit* The OC and LA people will meet at the Mervyn's parking lot on Alicia Parkway, east of the 5 Fwy at 7:45 AM, departure time is 8:00 AM. We will then drive out to the 78 and inland from there. We will meet the San Diego people at the Visitor's Center between 11:30 and noon. We will have an opportunity to gas up and have some lunch before heading in to the park. Coyote Canyon and Henderson Canyon are the best flower photog opportunities right now, per the rangers.

We will be on CB channel 5, and if there's too much chatter we'll go to channel 7. We will monitor those channels for anyone who may be late, see another FJ on the road and wanna say hi, etc. BTW, if anyone has an SWR meter, can you bring it to help me tune my new antenna? :D

If anyone has any questions, PM me or kokopeli for our cell numbers. I forgot to ask him, but I think kokopeli will be leading the charge to AB since he's been there a few times.

Anyone else? We need someone to take the point since I've never been there.

Re: So Cal Flower Run

yea. the actual park to go into sucks and is trampled. the surrounding areas are better and have dirt road accesses. there is a castle out in that area too that was built by some hollywood wierdo. nice area for being that near to lancaster.

Re: So Cal Flower Run

Cool....that's one very do-able suggestion. You know where it is, apparently....

Count me in (again) :) Deja vu. :D I like either Borrego or Joshua Tree. Both places look fantastic from the site that Volhoo provided.

I think both can be stock friendly. Just don't go where you can't go. There's got to be plenty of flowers around once you get there.

Re: So Cal Flower Run

I guess I'm just looking for a hint. I've never been to either, so since most people here have been to both, you guys tell me which one you'd like to hit. But this is happening on the 15th, so a decision needs to be made fast. I really appreciate your help and suggestions!!

I've not been to both either, but I wouldn't mind going to either one!

Re: So Cal Flower Run

there's this spot right off dillon road, and at the beginning of Berdoo Canyon that people have setup a "range" to shoot firearms. just throwing some ideas out there...nothing like flowers and firearms. ;D
