Orange County, CA: Touareg Off Road GTG - Santiago Peak. August 29 2010

Touareg Off Road GTG - Santiago Peak

When: August 29th (Sunday) 2010

Where: Santiago Peak in Orange County CA

We will be meeting in the Tustin Market Place Best Buy Parking lot at 3:00PM and leaving at 3:30PM
(send me a PM if you can't make by 3:30)

Google Maps Link to Best Buy: 33.721979, -117.794482 - Google Maps

We will all caravan over to Silverado Canyon Road. At the end of Silverado Canyon there will be a trail that will lead up to Santiago Peak (the highest point in OC!) which gets VERY dusty.

It takes approximately 2 hours to reach the top and about the same to get back down so make sure you have enough fuel before we leave!

Hey Dub, reach out to the new guy, heck, he took his T Reg offraoding on his trip home from Oregon to Mission Viejo. Our kinda guy, here's his thread https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f8...cal-42760.html

29th still works for me even though it's our special day

I'll call this a possible for me. I really have not worked out my travel calendar post-Colorado Rally but a trip to OC is in the mix and late August may be workable.

My own thoughts having been up there a few times - The trail chosen is workable and nice to learn how to use some of the controls for a Touareg. No clearance issues - some loose rock higher up that will give some fun. Dusty - yeah - but not too. Nice shelf especially if the group crosses the saddle between Santiago and Modjeska Peaks. Lots of photo ops on both sides of the ridge. Sunset is around 7:30 that night.

If I dont make it - have an awesome ride. If I do, it will be fun to meet everyone!

I'm working at St Joseph Hospital today and just met a guy with a new Ford Raptor. I looked at them a few months back and they have some pretty sweet features. 12" of travel, a wheelbase 7" wider than an F150, a monster 6.2l 410HP motor. What I didn't know that much of the work was done by SVT, it has the SVT Cobra style seats and interior etc. Pretty cool. Now that he has 300 miles on his Raptor, he is itching to do some offraoding so I kinda let it slip about our little trip, we're not haters of other 4X4's right Dub, we don't get all when it's not a Touareg do we?
