Well it's about time to start planning our annual Outdoor Adventure USA BorregoFest event. The dates are set for the 21st through the 23rd of October. This is a family friendly event that never fails to impress. We will be holding trail runs, ham radio testing on the Sunday of the event, a potluck, wine and beer tasting, and probably a small raffle (also usually held on the Sunday of the event). Please let us know if you plan on attending. Fees and sign up info are below.

We will be using our usual spot for the event this year, Stagecoach Trails located about two miles south of Scissors Crossing in Anza Borrego. :)

No fee is required if you are only coming out for one day or are making other accommodations outside of the group camp for spending the night. You are still allowed to come into the group site for the trail run meetings, potluck, and evening festivities each day. Fees are the same whether you stay for one night or two in the group site. Please post your interest in attending in the format you see below and your name will be added to the roster. "CONFIRMED" will be entered next to you name in the roster once your donation has been received.

I miss this. Borregofest was my first mainland offroad event and it was awesome even back then, These guys can really put on a great time.
I remember that run vividly. That was most of that groups first time through Diablo Drop Off, the mud caves, and all that. It is always cool to see the reactions to peoples new experiences. That's what it's all about and why I love taking groups out so much.:)

Sorry to hear that. SnT is a fun event. I doubt it's gone forever. I'd bet someone else picks it up and continues it. There'll be more of those to come.

Diana Lindsay gave us a presentation and did a book signing at BorregoFest for her new book about Ricardo Breceda's (Perris Jurasic Park) sculptures entitled "Ricardo Breceda: Accidental Artist". It was standing room only during her presentation. It was a wonderful experience. Diana and her husband Lowell got to see how we "rough it" Outdoor Adventure USA style with gourmet camp meals and wine to top it all off. Her book was released to the public for the first time during "Borrego Days" in Borrego Springs, CA the following day.

We want to sincerely thank Diana and Lowell for providing us with this wonderful opportunity. It was a wonderful presentation and a special treat to be able to hang out and learn so much from both of them about other Southern California historical facts and Anza Borrego history. :D

For a Friday run we decided to take a trip to check out one of the largest of the mud caves in Arroyo Tapiado. It was a great time. We wanted to check out more but caves but ran out of time. We wanted to get back in time for dinner and Diana Lindsay's presentation.

On Saturday I led the "Drive Through Time" Run. I want thank everyone who joined me on this run. You were all great company and it was a pleasure being your "Piper" for the day. Thanks to sdnative and Cruiserlarry for alternating in the Tailgunner spot throughout the day. I have a few pictures below and will have some more soon. The others will contain more rig and people shots.

After setting through Diana Lindsay's presentation on her new book, "Ricardo Breceda: Accidental Artist" on Friday night some of us couldn't resist checking out the Ricardo Breceda Scupltures (Sky Art).

Here's some pictures from the group that went on Sunday as an exit run...
