Hello, all. Guess I never did an intro. Lived in el Centro with my family for about 20 years now. Mostly off-roading in the winter and camping in the mountains, mostly Santa rosas in the summer. Have a few books on the area. Ann japenga has interesting related articles.
Getting more into hiking and native/mining history lately. As mentioned elsewhere, if you get into trouble in my back yard, stuck, broke down, twisted ankle, holler. Also let me know if you find junk or vehicles in the desert that need removed.

I work at a machine and welding shop during the day to pay for my adventures.

Thanks

Forgot to mention and don’t see an edit button...known @britain for years. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing 😆

Welcome to the blog have you ever camped East of TORO peak on the Alta Seca Bench ? It is a beautiful valley just East of the peak. I like to backpack in less than a mile and you would think you are in the sierras. Plus you can pack in some luxuries for such a short distance.

Well, right now winter favorite is probably fish creek mntns due to the remoteness and history. I want to explore the Coyotes more. Summer is Santa Rosa mountains, want to get over to San Jac more - try Marion Mt. I prefer tall shady trees and open forests to brushy areas without shade or oak tree areas with noisy leaves on the ground and lots of bugs.
