    A few friends and I have been planning an off-season, weekend desert run. We would like to get enough people and trucks to form a large convoy. Starting at the West end of Ocotillo Wells as the first rally point. Moving through Ocotillo on to Truckhaven to rally up again. From Truckhaven to the beach at the Salton Sea. Then back. At every rally piont and all along the way, is some of the best terrain this side of the Mississip. Probably in the world. I'm sure most of the local SoCal off roaders have either heard of Ocotillo, or have been there. But I don't think many have bonz'd the beach at Salton Sea, or have been out in a large convoy of trucks like this. We think it will be well worth the trip. So far, it looks like we're shooting for the first weekend of August time frame. We have been unofficially calling this "event": Sun Run. So named because it's going to be HOT!!! That's okay though, off roaders are tough as nails, that's why we go to events like Sun Run (now the official name, lol)! Send me a message if you would like more info. Dates are not set in stone just yet. Please contact me, and then go tell all your friends. So far, we're up to about 10 trucks, we're expecting many more. No charges, no frills. Just lots of fun and plenty of thrills!:)
