Ken Cooke's Pole Line Road 2015 Video


It has been three years since many Nomads got together in the desert between Mexicali and San Felipe (west of Hwy. 5's La Ventana) to enjoy four wheeling over a piece of the WWII POLE LINE ROAD. Constructed to install and service the telephone line that connected the U.S. radar base at San Felipe to Ensenada, in 1942.

This was a great group trip enjoyed by many Nomads and non-Nomads, as well.

That would be great!
I met many Nomads on that trip, in addition to you:
Ed (Ehall), Karl (Fernwah), Harald (4x4abc), and Chuck (ChuckMRN), plus the others who I don't think are on Nomad?

I had already met or traveled with TW, Frigatebird, and Ken Cooke plus the two Nomads who left early (John M and MICK).
