More October Off Roading Events

Just because summer is over doesn’t mean that there isn’t still fun to be had off-roading. NO WAY! There is still tons of terrific meets, trails, runs and fun left to be had by all! Here are a few more upcoming events in October that all you Jeep enthusiasts can join in on. And hey, even for those of you who don’t drive a Jeep, there is fun for you too.

Guest Acceptance: PUBLIC
Location: Ocotillo Wells in the Desert
Address: Hwy 78 Main St. Ocotillo Wells California, 92004

Here is what they have to say about their event!!!

“Every October we meet in the desert to have some wheeling fun and give something back. Come join us October 16-17 at the Ocotillo Wells SVRA where we raise money, not only for the Association, but also for the Cal-Diego Paralyzed Veterans Association. Whether you have a 4X4, motorcycle, quad or other off road toy, we have a run for you! The 4X4 runs offer choices for all skill levels from “scenic” to “body damage likely”. The motorcycle rides are geared for all experience levels. We also offer a ride for kids on motorcycles or quads. Basically, we offer something for everyone; that includes YOU! Even if you are a man wanting to go on the Powder Puff Run (this one is for the ladies), we allow it on the condition that you dress like a woman!

On Friday night we have a “Card” Run hosted by clubs and individuals all competing for your vote as “Best Stop.” With your event registration you receive one game card, and the person with the best hand receives a prize. You will also have the opportunity to buy additional game cards. The PVA receives the proceeds from these cards. We tried something new last year that we are bringing back. We had the “Stops” set up in main camp so more folks could participate. Bring the whole family to walk from stop to stop, with each group requiring you to show varying talents to get your card! Make sure to bring your RC truck with you, because Saturday afternoon before the raffle, we will have an opportunity for you to show off your RC toy on a rock crawling course. This is popular with kids and “big kids” of all ages! Depending on participation, we may even have a competition, so stay tuned.

The Cal-Diego PVA receives all the proceeds from the raffle, and we even have a separate raffle for the kids. This worthy cause is completely dependant on donations from folks like us. All donations are tax deductible, so if you would like to donate money or product, or if you know of a company that would be interested, please contact us. We understand that money is tight with fuel prices at ridiculous highs, and many folks fighting to keep their homes and jobs, so if you cannot afford to come out to participate, we urge you to register and buy a T-shirt to support your Association. It’s no secret that event registrations are way down, so we all have to do what we can to keep the Association moving forward. All proceeds from registration go to CA4WDC.

This event is not only a great way to give back to a very deserving cause, but it is also a lot of fun! Come join us for a great weekend, or send in your registration and/or donation today. Register now or contact Angela Cook at 760-505-3579 or”

“We will all gather at the entrance to Carova Beach also known as Corolla Beach in the Outer Banks 8:51 AM. We will collect trash from the beach in an effort to support the community and give back as Jeepers. Most jeepers from this area enjoy this beach year round. We will also have a BYO cook out on the beach, and enjoy the trails. Lets come together and show the local people we care and appreciate the use of this glorious shore line. Consider this a day run to OBX some of the existing members of KMA will be staying the weekend. If you come and help this meet-up be successful you are welcome to stop by the beach house we rented for a break and a meet and greet.. Please remember we are strict members of Tread lightly… we do NOT tear up the trails so please respect the beach and trails. What you need: gloves are nice!, Food and Beverage… (We strongly disapprove of alcohol during our events) all laws that apply to the road apply to the beach.., Trash bags, and sun screen. Now come on down and pitch in!”

"You're telling me it's got four wheels, two seats and goes faster than the speed limit? Good, I'm driving."


  1. I don’t know if I like Jeeping because of my name or if my Dad named me because he likes Jeeping. Doesn’t matter, it’s a different name and one that fits me to a T. I was only 6 or 7 the first time I went off road with my Dad and Mom. This is something we’ve always done as a family with vacations planned around off road events. My girl is totally into it too, or she wouldn’t be my girl. We take long weekends and try to make as many of the events as we can. They’re a blast.


  2. The Beach Klean sounds like a lot of fun. A little hard work to get the appetite ready for a cookout doesn’t sound to bad either. I’m really into keeping public areas clean so this is right down my alley. After that, the trails? Who could ask for more.


  3. The 7th Operation Desert Fun sounds like a must attend. I think the fact that all types of vehicles are allowed and have their own runs is tremendous. I’m a dare devil, so I might have to try the powder puff just for laughs. I’m 6′ 7” and I think my legs will look good in a mini with heels. I just hope I don’t have to walk too far in them.
