Randy, I will meet you there... You don't go through any gates, you just drive over the curb near the gate at the cul 'd sac. See my sateliite images Randy posted above? See 'Gate' and then see 'Access Road' next to the gate?? Unless something's changed since I was there last..? See you guys around 9:15 am, correct?

EARLY in 2010, Panda Jerk posted a run and he called it the drug airport because there is a straight section of road on top of that mountain in a little valley... From above it looks like a landing strip. Others call it the 'Welk Run' because it is 'across' I-15 from Lawrence Welk's Resort, north of Escondido. I usually just use both names... but I prefer Welk Run as it is more accurate... But, Panda Jerk's post was the first I learned of these dirt roads, so to me he gets some honor for naming it, too.

Actually because back in 1978 I was flying a vintage DC-10 with my usual 8 tons of Escobar's finest when I started having hydraulic problems & had to find somewhere flat & straight, couldn't land on the I-15 for obvious reasons & that strip was ideal becuase it was pretty well hidden, so I ditched the plane, left the dope, ran like hell & up till his death Pablo Escobar had a 500K green light on my ass !!.... true story....

It was EPIC, Randy... What fun... and again with amazing driving talent and Toyota quality, you went where only those with 4WD have gone before!

I have some pretty nice photos of you and Brent... I am about to leave for the San Diego Delby Dolls event at Del Mar Fairgrounds to get ahead of the L.A. exodus traffic... I will see if I can get some of them posted before I leave... if not, later or in the morning.

I hope Brent got some nice shots of the rescue... all was fun and good times!!!
