Howdy,

Chula Vista resident. Moved here just a couple of years ago. Have done quite a bit of hiking in the coastal mountains and through the Lagunas, looking to expand out in the desert. Have done just a couple of hikes and camping trips. Have a Tacoma 4x4, so able to get off the beaten path. So far have camped in Tamarisk Grove and June Wash and hiked Whale, Diablo, culp valley, and pictographs.


From Culp Valley Loop, my first time into Anza Borrego.

Look forward to learning more about this great place in our backyard!

Welcome! I also live in Chula Vista and I also started out with local and mountain hikes. I did a similar expansion to the desert starting in 2009. At first I got ideas from Jerry Schad's book and more recently from here. And somewhere along the way, I realized that 4WD (or at least AWD) is a must. I have a Subaru Crosstrek, which mostly gets me where I want to go, or close enough to walk.

Welcome aboard.

Usually have a slide in camper on it but here is a shot from last month 😎👍

Welcome! I also have a 4x4 Tacoma. It has more features than I will probably ever feel comfortable using. I haven't run into much trouble on the dirt roads in AB. Of course, I don't seek out the dangerous places like the Squeeze or Heart Attack Hill. Much to explore!
