Calico Night Run June 8th 2018

Calico Night Run June 8th 2018 rematch of Saturday Oct. 22, 2016


What:

Yes this is the rematch; No this is NOT an official run. Yes I finally got my Sliders on, which has been the hold-up. Don’t know that I care for them but I could be wrong. I will be running Odessa, Doran, and likely Phillips loop. I expect to hit the trail about 9:30 PM. The moon phase will be Waning Crescent so there won’t be much in the way of natural light. I would expect to be on the trails for four (4) to six (6) hours but that could vary.

Where and when to meet:
Original Tommy’s – 8:30 PM
2610 Fisher Blvd, Barstow, CA 9231
When you get off the freeway Tommy's is now hidden behind a Dickies BBQ




What to bring:
We will be eating dinner at Tommy’s (there are other options in the immediate area) so snacks and drinks to suit your taste. Anything else you would take on a difficult trail in the dark.

Rig / Gear
Rig: 33” tires
1 Locker helpful, a pair of limited slips should do the trick.
Undercarriage and body armor highly recommended.



Rattlesnakes:
This is the season and they are active.
Be aware they do not always rattle a warning prior to striking
Avoid wandering into the brush.
They are active in the evenings and after dark.

SAFETY:

1. Roll bar or factory installed hard top.
2. Adequate attachment points front and rear, i.e. tow hooks, receiver, etc. Tow balls are not permitted.
3. Tow strap or rope; without metal hooks (recommend rated at 2 times the vehicle weight).
4. Spare tire within close diameter of other tires
5. Jack capable of lifting your vehicle enough to change a tire; tools to change a tire.
6. First aid kit.
7. Fire extinguisher with gauge indicating good/full, appropriately stored.
8. Seat belts for all vehicle occupants.
9. Battery hold downs
10. Emergency brake, parking brake, line-lock or other redundant braking system.
11. Tools and spare parts as you think you may need them.



Recommendations:

1. Boots or sturdy shoes.
2. Flashlight(s)
3. Plenty of water or other nonalcoholic hydration.
4. Snacks and lunch.
5. Folding chair(s).
6. Dress in layers.
7. Windbreaker

Re: Calico Night Run June 8th 2018

I’ll try to make it. Depends on whether I can get my bump stops squared away and also on some work issues. Yes, I do work. Sometimes. Now is one of those times.

Oh and BTW. I never eat at Tommy’s . . . except every chance I get. So that there is a big plus in my book.

Sounds fun, smart way to beat the heat. I look forward to meeting you guys. I've missed all calico trips so far this year so I'm itching to get out there.

Re: Calico Night Run June 8th 2018

I think Calico is closer to hell than to high water (at least on a mid-summer day). But that night run sounds fun if it was closer...

Have fun, be safe!

Barring some unforeseen eventuality, I expect to be there. Who else is in?

I take it you got your bump stops where you want them.

I'm pretty sure that my front ones are close enough. Definitely ought to be better than at SCF.

Re: Calico Night Run June 8th 2018

Not yet where I want them, but I have a plan. They should be good to go by Friday.

Just installed a TC skid this afternoon. Been living dangerously without one for way too long.

Re: Calico Night Run June 8th 2018

Bump stops are good to go . . . I think. Friday will be the test run. Anyway, I'm ready to wheel.
