I had the great pleasure of meeting Alex (c.traveler2) and Julie this weekend in an short but sweet Anza Borrego adventure. It was his first adventure to Anza borrego and I wanted to show him around. Actually it was more of Alex showing me how its done XTC style.

we were to meet in Blair Valley, and a few truck campers kept coming by which I thought was Alex
Not this one, I think he has a hardside lance

This was a hardside but not a Lance

Here was a hardside lance but didn't look like his truck

I think this is his rig [emoticon]

We headed off through Blair Valley to check out some of the Jet Crash sites around

We headed into Oriflame Canyon and I got some XTC pointers from the Pro

we set up camp amongs the cottonwoods

I couldn't believe the canyon was bone dry, this is usually flowing pretty good...

What a great trip! Alex, gave me so many good pointers on how to better equip my rig to handle the off road extremes. He even gave me a good pointer on how to replace my fresh water tank filler cap

Looking for jet wreckage? That's just plane crazy but looks like a good fun trip from the jet set, thanks Nolan and Alex.

It was our pleasure to meet with Nolan (anutami) and his family, he showed us a few sights including two cash sites. Oriflamme Canyon campsite was gorgeous, it was too bad no water was flowing in the creek, it was drier than a empty JD bottle.

Cool TR. I did not know there were crash sites out there. I will have to go check it out in the near future.

I don't know about these crash sites but there are crash sites where Air Force, Marine, and Navy pilots have lost their lives during training missions. My nephew who is in the AF lost two of his friends in a night training crash a couple years ago. Just wanted visitors to be aware and respectful.

That's a very good point. But on the flipside, it's to bad the military isn't respectful enough to clean up those crash sites.
