So the women will be out of town and I want to take advantage and get soem driving in assuming the weather is nice. I have never been to Hollister so I am really looking forward to going. I also want to get a head start on the camping season and try out my Truck Tent lol.

My schedule really sucks and I work weekends, which is why I am posting this a month early so any of those that want to go, can maybe get the time off, or fit it in their schedule. There is a few ways we can all do this but either way I plan on doing something like this:

Get to Hollister the 27th (Tuesday) in the AM or early afternoon. Drive around explore the park. Camp over night, drive the park again. I am also looking up some trails or anything else to do on the way back from Hollister, maybe hit up Frank Raines Park since it is right of HWY 5

I will most likely go regardless if anyone from here goes, I will drag my buddy with his Titan, tho if noone else camps, I may not do that.

I have also checked their events calendar and there are no posted events after the 25th. so camping and all trails should be open

So who is down to go!

1. Project510 +2 (Friends)
2. Webfur NewX (Tuesday only)

Soooo forecast still shows rain. We have a couple options here:

1. Push date to Thursday, which is cloudy but 71 with some sun
2. Push it 1 week to the following Tuesday which is ALL SUN and 81

nismo your in Fresno

Wolf, did you wanna meet up near my house? We will also be meeting up with an Xterra in the south bay then heading their. Nismo you can just meet us there. I would like to get there by 10, but traffic coming from the Bay Area will suck. So I say we meet at 11 at hollister

Whats everyone bringing?

I am bringing:

Repair stuff:
Tools
Jack stands
Highlift +hl winch kit

Food & Drinks
I can bring plenty of cold water
some chips or snacks

I would suggest bringing food, that way we don't have to leave for lunch.
