You could go to a weekend (2 days) adventure at the Dirty Toy School (Toyota Owner Learning Adventure)
It runs around 250 bucks and they will likely be having one in Anza Borrego later this year. http://www.dirtytoyschool.com/
two days of like 3 hours class room + 6 hours trail work each. (8am-ish till past dark). friday night meat and greet (and I do mean meat
) happy hours w/swag . I highly recommend being there for this. Saturday Night BBQ or banquet with multiple door prizes given away ( I won a 60" extreme hi lift jack).

The wife and I went and had an excellent time. we got a heck of a lot out of it and met some really top shelf folks . This is definetly NOT some pansy assed trail ride.
