October is here and it's time to start planning for our biggest annual event. Join us in the Anza Borrego Desert for 3 days of camping, 4x4 trail runs, and hiking. We will also be offering Amateur Radio License testing on Sunday for all levels from 10:00 AM to noon.
This is a family friendly event where we get to meet the family members we generally don't see on the trail. It's also a chance to make new friends. This year we will be located at the Butterfield Ranch Resort, located just outside the Park boundary. The Ranch is equipped with full hookups for RVs, plenty of tent camping, two pools, showers, and a well stocked store.
On Friday evening, Reena Deutsch will be joining us for a presentation on one of the most fascinating Rail Roads in the US, The San Diego & Arizona Railway. The SD&A RR was built in the early 1900s and is still in use today. The tracks run through what is now part of the Anza Borrego Desert State Park in an area known as the Corrizo Gorge. Among it's many engineering marvels is the Goat Canyon Trestle. Reena will also be leading a hike on Friday to one of the main construction camps used between 1917 and 1919 for the crew who was building the tracks through the Gorge.
During the day on Satruday, there will be several trail runs. Once we return to camp, we will have a spacial wine tasting and appetizer event hosted by our wine master, Lyndia Harman, KI6SXI, followed by our famous pot luck (Dutch Oven) dinner.
