Hot Action Under the California Sun

My weekend at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway starts as a story about being stuck smack in the middle.  While probably not the middle of nowhere, CVR is, in fact, in a pretty desolate area almost precisely equidistant from the EFF Home Base in the greater Phoenix area, and our home in San Diego.  Unfortunately for everyone without a sleeper RV, it is also almost precisely equidistant from neighboring towns Blythe and Indio, which made for some early mornings and late evenings as we all carpooled some 45 minutes to and from the nearest hotel in Blythe.

2015 American Adventurist Desert Rendezvous

2015 Sees the American Adventurist Desert Rendezvous return to the BLM land east of Split Mountain Road, just outside Anza Borrego park boundaries.  This is a lovely area, and the silty washes were in better shape this year for our trip once we departed the pavement.  Kimberley was much less white-knuckled this year, for sure.
