2007-12-22: Otay Moutain Tour

Some people have been interested in seeing the views of Otay Mountain in the San Diego area. This is probably the southern most trail in the SoCal/San Diego area. I would like to set up a formal run on December 22nd. Please post up if you are interested. This is a very scenic run with some spectacular views (weather permitting of course). Perfect run for a stock vehicle and family fun. Nothing aggresive just some shelf roads and a few fire trails. We will also stop and view some WWII bunkers/gun emplacements. Bring picnic lunch.

MEET & GREET:
Pio Pico Campground
14615 Otay lakes Rd
Jamul, CA 91935

GPS Coordinates
N 32.65411
W 116.85692

Fom San Diego:
Take I-805 south to the Telegraph Canyon Road exit and travel east. Continue straight on Telegraph Canyon Road, which becomes Otay Lakes Road. Follow for about 17 miles to the preserve.

From Jamul:
Take Hwy 94 south to Otay Lakes Road, turn right and follow about 3 miles to the preserve.

TIME:
9:00 am
Depart up trail: 9:30 am


Completion Time:
When Done (probably around 3:00 pm) I plan on going to the Lampost in corona immediately from the run to join the crew SoCalFJ crew for pizza and beer.

Comm Plan:
CB Channel: 34
2M Simplex: 147.510
2M Repeater: 146.640 (PL: 107.2)

I am in, assuming my rig is back from the Stealership and the rat nibbling damage is repaired by then. :-)

Glad you are putting this together. Thanks!

I usually save this spleech (speech/lecture) for the run but here goes:

After the Japanese invaded Pearl Harbor we were afraid they, or someone other nation, would try it again via the Mexican border. So we put gun emplacements/bunkers up there to overlook the border as a first line of defense. The Army units occupied them in a rotation. Sort of like the Point Loma bunkers but not as popular or as extravagent.

Oh, and I'll be there!!

"spleech"?? That is nuts!! I like it.

Thanks for the info. It makes sense given the fear at the time.

I'll keep the trip info on the mental back burner as it is a 120 mile drive just to get there....
