    I'm planning on going to El Mirage after the holiday for the weekend.
    Does anybody else plan on being out there that weekend? I've never been but was looking at some vids of it on youtube and it looks cool.

    My mother lives by Solvang so i'll be driving from norcal to there on wed, spend thanksgiving with moms then head out to the desert to meet up with some friends on Friday night and spend the weekend there.

    Anybody care to partake?

    yeah i agree with manwithoutaplan. it gets old for the trucks, if your taking bikes then its a little better but honestly i would make the extra 45 minute drive and go to barstow, its 45 minutes past el mirage(atleast from fullerton, brea, OC). its got wide open desert for the trucks, trails, race trails, washes, everything. and its free unlike el mirage
