After having worked a 65 hour week at a work conference Olivia and I needed to get out and decompress, we knew we wanted to go somewhere warmer than our last trip and neither of us had been to the extreme south end of Arizona so we decided it was time! I didn't have a ton of time to plan this trip out given my crazy work schedule which lead to a few issues which you'll read about later, we got off work on Thursday afternoon so we took the rest of the day to plan and prep so we could leave early Friday morning. We had a stop planned down in El Cajon to see our good friends down at Pelfreybilt, Pelfrey has been monumental in the building of my truck over the past few years and I can't say enough great things about Tyler, Satin and the whole crew down there. After grabbing lunch and checking out their new shop it was time to head even further south, our original plan was to camp in the Jacumba area but when we got on the trail there was a construction crew working and said the trail wouldn't open for another hour or so....It was at this point late afternoon/evening and we needed to find camp so waiting another hour wasn't gonna happen, we hopped back on I-8 and headed east, I didn't know the area at all but found some 4x4 trails on my topo maps wish some cool looking topography so we headed that direction. After searching through the trails and it almost dark we found a great spot that had a fire ring but it looked as though no one had been back there in quite some time. We set up camp, cooked some dinner and relaxed by the fire watching shooting stars and constellations as there was no moon this night so we could see everything perfectly.
