Rather then runs with leaders and all that, much of it is kinda' self guided with three levels or trails marked. you follow the "color" of the level with which you feel comfortable and know if anything happens and you are alone for a bit, another will be along very soon to help you. you go at your own pace . . . wheel, lunch, whatever. This portion is in the 'Truckhaven Hills' the area generally north and north west of N. Marina that is a huge playground of sorts but not in the state park proper.

If you start is the early morning, you'll be done in the early PM. Then you can do what you like and there is a lot to do. you can go play on the hills as may do. you can get up on a high spot and look down at a hard spot, drink beer and watch Heeps fall on their side. Or you can run off and do a run.

That is not to say they do not have runs with a trail leader and all that as well. They do . . . mostly on Sunday and depending in interest they're thinking Pumpkin Patch, Calicite mine and maybe others in the state park itself.

Plus they have a vendor area, food and a huge raffle! It is a huge event!!!!!!!!

As the sun sets, folks play in the washes, hills and drop offs and have so good roudy fun!!! There is stuff there for every type of 4X4, wild to mild!

If there is a run we'd (meaning we in the 'all of us' way) like to do and a bunch of us are there, we can do that also!

If you check out this month's In Gear (Cal4Wheel's excellent newsletter) you'll see an article there about the event describing the trail plans, raffle and food.

My wife and I had a great time at the Truckhaven Challenge and this event is bigger and badder than that!!!! It is a huge event, as seen on 4X4 TV and others . . . good fun!!!

TDS is a MUST. Lots of fun for all levels of rigs. You can make it as hard or soft core as you wish.

Well, you don't have to be registered, but then its like you are just mooching off the Tierra Del Sol club, who work very hard to put this event together. I usually register, but don't go on their formal runs as I have a club that I am member of. Plus they donate most of their profits to keep trails open. Come on man, pony up the dough and support our sport.

It is best to register. It is their party so we should play by their rules. It'll be a lot of fun!!! The event is huge!!! It is not one of those events with a lot of leaders and such, more freedom and fun than that. If you pre-register, it is 45 but 60 on site. A lot of the money goes to groups that are working to keep the trails open for us all.. Please come!!! You can get the form here:

http://www.tds4x4.com/tds_safari/Safari_Forms/44th%20Annual%20Desert%20Safari%20Registration%20F orm.pdf


It is a PDF file, you need Adobe Acrobat to open it. you can down loaded the reader for free here:

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

Or contact Ron Kwait at president@tds4x4.com . . . he can help you.

I hope there will be a lot of Toyotas there . . . I know you'll have a good time and meet new people and . . .well . . . just go!!!
Hope to see you there.

Hey Robert!

We'll see you there too! We're not setting up a booth this year since we'd rather go out and play, but we will have vehicles on display around raffle time - so stop by!

Hey Sarah,
One of my Master Certified Tech's, Victor, is going to be calling you today. He liked the rock sliders on my034runner, and wanted to get a set for a '98 Tacoma. I told to make sure and talk to you, but if you weren't there for any reason, to talk to Terry, Cool? Take care of him, he just got free rein on Tundra Solutions.com and I think that he might be able to swing some more business your way. So you're not putting up a booth? I thought that you were for some reason. But, I understand, you need more play time!
We're going to get there as early as possible on Friday, and set up camp somewhere around the TDS area. We're splitting up into two groups this year, as everybody gets off at different times, and we don't want to getting there after dark again, and then trying to get a camp spot. We're Primitive, so no motor home or anything like that. Was thinking about renting one, but of course, we ran out of time and money again- mostly time though. You still have my phone # don't you? If not, PM me, and I'll shoot it over to you, or look it up in your work computer. This will be another fun trip, and can't wait to see your Tacoma!
