Wornout's 2023-2024 Desert Runs Thread [2-16-24 Run added, scroll down, below]


Most every week, during the cooler months, Baja Nomad Wornout, leads day trips (some call them 'runs') out from El Dorado Ranch, San Felipe, into the surrounding desert or coastline. All are welcome who can travel in 4x4s, dune buggies, and side-by-sides. Warren (Wornout) makes a Relive map video that includes photos and sometimes short videos of the trips, which include a lunch stop.

I have been sharing his Relive links and some photos here on Nomad as they show some of the interesting Baja country and people having fun as they interact with the land.

See previous trips in this forum (or links just below).

=======================================================================
Post from Wornout, today:

First Ride This Season Will Be Wednesday, October 18, 2023

We will leave from the tires, where the powerline crosses the paved Saltido Road, at 9:00 am.

This will be the first ride of the season so it will be an easy one. We will head out info Valley Chico to west valley road. We will do the same run as the first run of last season and that is to head up to Tulare and Tulane canyons, to look around, then head to Cajon Canyon for lunch.

See you Wednesday

Sorry to go off topic although not much so, but early this morning before dawn, the 2023 Rip to Cabo popped up on my youtube page.

I have been checking my Cox ESPN channels for a while ever since David put the notice here and it was never broadcasted.

The Youtube version had hardly any commercials and those that did were only a few seconds long. The program lasted over an hour without the bs of TV commercials.

Now back to the topic at hand.

The show I mentioned in the Off Roading forum was 'Trail of Missions'. It was listed as 'World of X Games', at 2 pm, but the broadcast began at 2:20 PST as the game previous ran long.

I was surprised it came up on YouTube as soon as it did.
Was Rip to Cabo also on recently or am I just messed up on pain meds now, and not following, lol!?

My apologies amigos!

You are messed up David, but mostly in good ways. haha

May the good graces continue to treat you well. Nomad needs you well.

The latest Rip to Cabo on you tube was all Baja with barely any commercials.

I will keep checking my ESPN channels for the World of X games like I do anyway in the chance it will cover off roading, surfing, and the Trail of Missions you mentioned.

Your many contributions here show the passion for Baja many us share in our own ways. Take care and keep the posts coming, even if mostly from your armchair and hopefully back on the road when possible.

The season of giving thanks is for everyone to appreciate and for their own reasons. Peace, love, and fish tacos.

David, thanks. I watched the Trail of Missions last night. I always look for some spots I made it to in years past. Most trails I would never consider trying myself, nor have the vehicle to do it in.

A friend in Pescadero years ago, decades ago, gave a me ride in his souped up off road truck through some ejido land that had me screaming from my seat. What a ride that was.

I got a small taste of what these madmen do all the time. Madness can be a good thing within reason. haha

Thanks for the show and so much more.

This weeks run plan from Wornout


This week's run will be to Calamity Canyon Overlook. We will meet at the Brewery Parking lot, at 9:00 am, and head north on Hwy 5. Calamity Canyon is the last canyon before the military stop. We will then head west into the canyon. Once we are a half a dozen or so miles in the canyon, we will turn left and head to the overlook. Hopefully the last storm has not cut off our route. We will have lunch at the overlook and then head back to San Felipe the same way we go there. We will not be going all the way through Calamity Canyon as the Baja 1000 went through there last week and I am sure the road would be a challenge.

Tomorrow, Dave D. is filling in for Warren:

"OK, we have a few going. Slow and easy cruise to the Sulphur Mine and then to Chenowth. If you don't mind going at a slower pace, this one is for You! Meet by the gas station on airport road at 9:00."

WOW


The “WOW” Arroyo or track is the parallel leg of Chanate which splits into two legs and WOW is on the seldom driven leg. Probably only 10% of the hard core rigs can complete the path thru WOW then to the SE then navigate the 5+ foot drop off and then the over the spillover (waterfall), then travel thru the Cardon forest back to the main flow path. Wornout will stop for lunch just at/before the drop off.

From previously posted descriptions:
“WOW” No official name. Wash is loop from Chanate to Chanate. Heading easterly the entrance in Chanate is near N30-52.95, W115-02.01. From the SW side of Chanate drive SW then SE to find the track. The end of WOW at the drop off is near N30-51.384, W115-00.136. Find a 5+ foot drop off at that place. In the past the drop off has been full of rocks and was passable by ATV via narrow crack. A rock crawl Jeep can drive around the drop off. After the drop off leading SE find the spillover (waterfall). Then the track leads back to Chanate past/thru the Cordon Forest.
Enter the loop from the east at N30-51.194, W114-59.284 and drive SE. The track then curves back to a western heading then follow the arroyo to the spillover. A Cardon forest is at the big curve.

Arroyo Chanate (Chanote) means blackbird. Leads to west valley past Quartz Mtn at N30-53.510, W115-04.220.
Find access at OPR N30-53.379, W114-549.793. Locals have used the name Emerald canyon and has a landmark called Quarts or Crystal Mountain near the west end.

The tracks on the image are actual GPS tracks I drove.
Wornout will be traveling west via Chanate




Goggle Earth Track. Track ends at Drop off.
