Official NorCal Offroading @ Hollister 8/2/09
 
Meet and Greet at Hollister Hills SVRA on Sunday, August 2nd, 2009.

http://www.parks.ca.gov/DEFAULT.ASP?page_id=404

Meeting time will be 9:00 AM at the In-n-Out parking lot in the Gilroy outlets.

641 Leavesley Rd
Gilroy, CA 95020

It's best that we meet up here before entering the park because there isn't any phone service in there. After In-n-Out, we'll caravan the short drive to Hollister Hills. It will cost $5 per truck to get in.

Everyone is welcome!!!

Let's get that list going... :D

Define good off road, they have 3 levels of trails
green = basic fire road
blue = more difficult 2wd could probably do 80% of these
black = most difficult and goes from 1-3 diamond.
depending on your experience it could or could not be challenging. It is good way to get out with others and have sum fun.

as for mud, just the mud pit.

Forgot they also have an obstacle course and a test track.
Also there is air at the ranger station/ motorcycle park, where we pay.

Do you have a 4wheel parts over there? They have Smitty Built Strap, 2"x30' with reinforced loops for $35, pretty good deal.;)
Yea, looks like I'll be going.:cool:

Carson 07-30-2009 06:08 PM

Yeah i have one pretty close. I'll have to go pick one up, thanks!

Tacolution 07-30-2009 07:52 PM

I have a tow strap, so we're covered there. What about 2-way radios?

stroM- 07-30-2009 08:41 PM

Ive got a small 210 PSI air compressor, a tow strap, and a shovel (who knows), also a few random extras. No 2 way radios here though :(

Kenny650 07-30-2009 10:24 PM

K I will be bringing 0 gear because I have none. LOL. I only have a tire deflator. Who's all going!!??

senna,

Thanks for the pics! I'm definitely stoked for sunday!

Tacolution 07-31-2009 02:15 PM

This should be fun for sure. I was there last Sunday with a buddy and it is super dry and dusty. Truck hill is fun for 4x4s but I wouldn't attempt it in a prerunner.

I was there last sunday also. :wave:

Carson 07-31-2009 09:39 PM

Yeah im pumped now!! Just upped my bilsteins to 2.5 inches so i'm even more pumped (damn that was a bitch)!! Also got me a tow strap! I think 2 way radios would be good... I would say just bring them if you have them.

I'd try that. It doesn't look that bad. Have fun guys! :D

Tacolution 08-01-2009 06:40 PM

^ yeah it's not impossible. But it's steeper than it looks and tough to get traction because of how silty the ground is. We'll have to convince one of the prerunners going to give it a shot...
