The Place / Re: Desert Camping Spots?
« Last post by kb on February 21, 2020, 06:11:52 PM »


Going to be doing a desert trip soon, there will be a mix of kids on dirtbikes and quads, parents on dirtbikes, a grandpa with a sandrail and a dog. We're looking for a place with a dry lake bed for the younger ones to have their fun, but also a nice network of trails and places to go sight seeing.

I've camped at Red Mountain a bunch as a kid, and a few times in my early 20's at Dove Springs and enjoyed the riding there, but I don't know if it would be good for the kids or the sandrail?

A friend had mentioned Cuddeback Dry Lake? I've never been, and just want to make sure I won't be bored to death for 3 days. When we were teenagers, my friends dad took us to Barstow for the day once to a spot that was almost dead flat and boring as f*ck! If we do go to Cuddeback, it would be cool to see the Husky Monument. Are there any desert ghost towns out there to see?

On thing I've been wondering as well, is that often times leaving Cahuilla on a Sunday afternoon at the 371 and 79 junction, you'll see multiple toy haulers and motorhomes with flatbed trailers loaded up with ATV's on the 79 headed towards the 15. Are these folks coming back from Ocotillo? The furthest I've been that way was to Chaney Ranch once.

Where ever we end up, we're hoping to not get hassled by rangers!

Thank you.



Side note: For sure that van had this 8 track playing 24/7...

Sorry Kid, can't help you with the camping......but the 5 Summer Stories soundtrack sure brought back memories,

Funny at the 2nd rd of Big 6GP at Taft
the start was Left hand on throttle and right hand on rear fender. Light turns green and seemed like by the time I got my hand on the clutch bikes were already flying off the start...Think they were all running a rekluse clutches. Guess that's 1 advantage.

Haha, yeah I run a Rekluse and got the hole shot in the 60+ Expert class.

Iím bailing ASAP. Idaho looks possible but not certain yet.
I'm not saying you would do something like this but just an example of what Californians have done to other great escape locations.  I have a lot of friends that live in Arizona, Idaho and Texas.  Their complaint is this...the Californians want out of this cesspool of a state but then bring their shitty California mentalities and bureaucracy with them and ultimately turn wherever they move to into a mini-California.  The Austin, Tx. area is a classic example as the place has turned into a liberal mecca of dumbasses.

I've read that this is a false narrative.  People leaving CA (not all of course) are typically VERY conservative and leaving for a reason.  The blue wave in Texas is from the voting youth, not transplants.

^^^^ This 100%

It is true, cities like Austin (the most liberal city in Texas) and Boulder (the most liberal city in Colorado) a few years back had a mass influx of Ca lefties bringing their liberal agenda with them and all but destroying those cities with their liberal policies that lead to massive increases in taxes, unemployment, crime, drug use and increases in welfare recipients. The people back then that we're leaving had money and left to go to states that (ironically) had lower tax rates so they could start businesses using the money they made in Ca. They were mostly liberal and as expected, once they had been there a while and encouraged other liberal friends to come, they F'd the once conservative cities up with their imported liberal points of view. The residents of those states had reason to hate Californians...

Flash forward to present day.  The people who are leaving California in droves are conservatives who have had enough.  They are looking for conservative like minded people and thus move to states like Texas, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, North Carolina and Tennessee.  Basically, what is occurring now is a shuffling of the deck by suit. Liberal cities are becoming more liberal and conservative cities are becoming more conservative.  This is not to say entire states, however, follow this pattern. States like Ca and New York have gone over the cliff as they swing left and as the new numbers come in, states like Tennessee, Texas and Nevada have moved more to the right as they become redder with the migration of like minded conservative people.  Even though those states have overall become more red, each still has it's liberal enclaves - Nashville in Tennessee, Austin in Texas, Phoenix in Arizona and Ketchum in Idaho.

Do your homework. Visit a city and look at it's city council, county supervisors and state elected officials.  When you get to a city, go to places like CostCo and Home Depot where large numbers of the average working people that live there go.  What do you see?  Talk to them...

Here in Prescott I saw average Americans driving trucks that wore baseball caps, blue jeans and T shirts.  They loved their country, their outdoor sports,  their family and went to church on Sun.  When you drive down a side street they wave at you and it is expected that you will wave back.  If you go to the store you WILL meet someone that asks how ya doing and they mean it.

As a third generation Californian I thought I would never leave. There is life beyond California and it is good!  I'd write more, but I just got a text from a guy I haven't ridden with in a while that said he found some new single track I need to ride.  I have to get out in the garage and change my rear tire from my track tire to my beater trail tire.  This guy always seems to find the rocky stuff...
