Have fun, everybody! Wish I could be joining you. My wife and I were there a couple of weeks ago (for the 4th time). Here are some pics she took.

So I just got my JLR, 100 miles on it. i’ve been camping a jeep'n all my life and am very interested in joining. I would love to see D.V. back country and make new friends. Not many Wranglers that off-road in Carpinteria. My reservations to joining you are, this totally new Wrangler that hasn’t been equipped with off-road accessories and 3 days to get ready and meet up. I have a fair amount of personal camping equipment I can throw in the back a I feel good enough with that part. Mostly it’s the lack of off-road extras that support my own vehicle recovery if needed. Tools, Hi-lift jack, extra fuel, tire repair kit stuff like that. Sounds like this group is going to be small which is good and bad for vehicle recovery. Any thoughts from participants as to this retired dude joining. My wife will not be joining.

Ben,
Congrats on your Jeep. There will be plenty of recovery gear. I don't think it will be needed. I will be getting a first hand report from a fellow member who is in there now on some of the same routes. Your camping gear, food, water and those supplies are what you'll need other than the pass to be carrying. If you dont' have one you can buy one in the park approximately halfway thru our route.
You said JLR, my only concern would be a gas can if you have the two door. Smaller fuel tank.
But other than that, come on out!
Vic

Thanks. I've been into DV a couple times, gas will be my issue with 2 dr Rubi's small tank. I like the extra fuel location on your Jl where did you get that? Okay thanks for accepting me in your group. I will be gathering personal gear and loading up. looks like the meet up is 21st, Mojave 76 station 8:30 AM right.

That is one spot. A couple of us are meeting at the park and ride at Porter Ranch Dr off the 118 freeway if your coming that way?? We are MTG there at 7am and driving off.
