The heydays of the Toy Hauler Forum are definitely a thing of the past now, but there are still a handful of old-timers around.

Is anybody around today who attended any of the So Cal Rallies? We had yearly rallies starting in 2004 until our group got too big and the BLM told us they'd shut us down the following year if we didn't have permits and portable toilets.

After that, we still kept the tradition alive with the "Notta Rallies" (they were "not a rally") for another five years or so. Those were some great years.

Those rallies signified the official start of the riding season every Veterans Day, and then we'd ride through April or May depending on the heat.

So is anybody heading out to the desert to ride yet? It's pretty early in the season, but we're itchy to get out and get together with our bigger groups. We haven't seen most of our group since the start of COVID. Folks are eager to go out, so we'll go sweat and choke on the smoke from the wildfires.

Our big event is this weekend in Ridgecrest. Was out last weekend setting up, heading back out tomorrow through Monday for the event. We anticipate 2,000 racers in two days. Come on out to Desert Empire Fairgrounds this weekend and witness the last of the classic Grand Prix. No other club puts on a race on a temporary circuit like we do.

Our event more or less kicks off the second half of the desert racing season.

Never made it to a rally.

You made it to AGW though.

We'll be across the highway in Dove Springs, so we won't be in your way.

Good luck with your race. Stay cool.

Well, I have a toyhauler more or less ready to go.

Almost finished harvest work.

Love campin in the desert.

But I present myself at the US border to cross legally so no can do at the moment.

Nice. I'm having some mechanical issues, but we're on track for three trips in November in the same area.

Where do you like to go near Randsburg? And do you ever ride into town for night rides? They have pretty epic burritos at The Joint if you ask nicely. It's a fun trip into town for dinner.

I'm almost afraid to ask, what type of burritos you get if you don't ask nicely? Day old Taco Bell? [emoticon]
