It was cold when we left the gas stations but not real windy. The sun came out and what a clear view of the deserts from up there. We made it to the station at about 10:30am so we stopped and checked out the area and then headed on to a lunch spot out of the wind. After lunch we split up into two groups. The one group didn’t want to take on an obstacle so they took an

We had a great turn out for this year’s powder puff run. Thirteen vehicles met across the street from the gas stations in Jacumba before venturing out onto the trail. The group consisted of 12 lady drivers and one guy who was brave enough to don a SD4W red gown for the event.

We took the group on the old Butterfield Stagecoach trail. This is an easy trail with spectacular views. Some would argue the trail was not easy, but that is because of a fear of heights more than any trail difficulty.

Rod and Howie climbed Heart Attack Hill on the left side without incident. The third obstacle was a challenge for a few on the trip. Had lunch in Sandstone Canyon, where there was evidence of the recent quakes. Some of the walls had fallen which prevented us

Beautiful weather with moderate temperatures enhanced a great weekend of adventure. Rigs from all over Southern California and beyond filled Superstition Mountain with fun and excitement as all skill levels were tested.

Saturday night brought great food from Rita’s Cowboy Grill and another fabulous Raffle with tens of thousands of dollars in prizes.

We would like to thank all of you who drove so many miles to make our event another success. A

Corral Canyon Day trip 3/6/2010

By Lloyd Savoie

Lloyd, Molly, Dorys, Gail, & Russ Met at Corral Canyon Sat 2-13-10. I did not lead but they made me drive in front.

We started Sidewinder at our normal exit, the upper campground. When we got to the bolder drop-off (a climb this time) a Toyota was broke down with a broken tie rod. They were waiting in hope of someone with an onboard welder to show up. I suggested they take another vehicle and go get the parts they needed but they chose to wait, we turned around.

Next we went to Bronco Peak from the top

Super 11 is a Super Success!!

Super 11

Fears that the bad economy was going to reduce the amount of participants at this year’s event were quickly laid to rest with fantastic weather and low gas prices. Attendance records were broken at this 11th annual Superstition Mountain event.

Before guests arrived, the San Diego 4 Wheelers were hard at work setting up the site. Registration, raffle and t-shirt kiosks were erected, the safety area was coned off and run boards and the raffle trailer were set up. By 3:00 pm we were ready to go …
