This year's SoCal TTORA Anza Borrego Desert Run was great! We had a really great group of guys and gals. I met a lot of new faces, and I hope to see each and every one again in the future!

This year's participants were: Johnnie, sparky, Proudrunner, pray4surf, Rivethead242, BASEjumper, TacoDell, gsmsnuffy, Zam15, Scuba, SAR_Squid79, Desertcamper67, Pikeman

We had a fun little raffle that worked out very well. We had 13 rigs & 13 prizes! EVERYBODY WON SOMETHING!

I would like to thank our 4 sponsors:
SoCal TTORA, All-Pro, Camburg and Demello Off-Road

Camping at Fish Creek Camp worked out AWESOME! Everyone found the place, everyone showed up on time, we had our driver's meeting at 0900 as planned, and all the runs ended back at camp. We only had 2 groups this year. A Medium and a Difficult (there was no interest in an "Easy" run).

The Medium group ran Canyon Sin Nombre out to the historic Stage Coach Station site, where we stopped for lunch and lectured some Jeepers on treading lightly . Then we back-tracked to Arroyo Seco Del Diablo to Middle Mesa, down Diablo Dropoff, through "Broken Shaft Gulch", to Sandstone Canyon, to Fish Creek Wash, and then Baja Raced back to camp - arriving just before sunset!

Great run - Great group - lots 'o fun - no carnage! ...and best of all we didn't have to drive an additional 70 miles back to Truckhaven!
