Arrow Humboldt County Crawlers

Any other crawlers from Humboldt County?


Post up so we can join up or at least share some good crawling spots.


I'm in the Arcata area. My regular spots are Sequoia park, Moonstone beach and Megwill point (college cove). I tend to keep going to the same spots for the convenience but I'd like to explore a bit more.

I usually go out on the weekends.



I usually run 1.9 rigs but I have a few 2.2 rigs, some bashers, an 8x8 and some micros.



I found some older regional threads for Humboldt County but they were all at least 6 years old so I though I'd start a new one.






I'd like to get out this weekend but I dont have any concrete plans yet.

Hey Casey,

It was great running into you yesterday.

I've only got my modded Gen8, but I love taking it anywhere I can. Always up for a challenge.

So far I have only taken it to Sequoia park and the rock pile we were mentioning yesterday next to the Harley dealership.

Typically I go out on Sundays, however I am not sure if I can this next Sunday. It would be a blast to get together and mob around soon!

Happy Trails,

-Nick

Welcome David!

What about this weekend guys?

Shawn wants to go out Sunday which works for me, anyone else interested? Not sure where yet, I guess whatever is the most convenient for everyone.

Hey Nick, are you saying Sunday is the only day you can get out? just checking.

EDIT: I'll post for David because I dont think he will lol, David said he wants to go out Saturday and Sunday.

Sounds good to me so long as my feet are still working after Saturday

Looks like the plan for today is Sequoia Park at 1:00.

We meet up by the playground restrooms. So far I think we have David and Shawn coming, let me know if you're coming too.

Nice, I'm glad you got that sorted out. Welcome to RCC!

Last weekend ended up just being a Saturday run, maybe only 2 1/2 hours.

I'd love to get up to Trinidad soon, Its been too long since I've been up there.

Ahh, right on. I am pretty stoked to be on here! The next month is going to be really crazy for my but I will have some time off and really want to get up to Trinidad as well. Another spot I want to recon is the river area near the Mad River brewery in Blue Lake. Water levels are really low this time of year and I have a feeling that some of the dry river beds could prove to be entertaining!

Thats a great idea, I scoped out that area with google earth but I forgot to consider water levels. Google earth is a great tool for looking around for spots BTW.

Okay Shawn and I are making plans to hit up College cove on Sunday. Is anyone else interested?

Wind shouldn't be too strong, 5mph max around mid day according to the forecast. Where we go is very exposed so the wind can get pretty gnarly when its bad.

Wow... This sites safety protocols are quite strict. I can post or reply from this machine all I want but it I use another computer or even my phone, I keep getting blocked. Oh well...

Anyway, I am on call this weekend and can't really get out but I will be free next Sunday for some exploring. Take some pics at the Cove if you can. I am curious if it the same place I have hiked out to before. (Before I had the truck).

Nick is in the middle of a complete yard makeover at his house and I think he is consumed with that. I haven't heard much from him since that project started but will reach out soon and see what his time lines are.

This month is going to be busy for me but I may end up having more free time on the weekends to get some wheel time in. I have a couple of places I want to go check out and see if they have anything worth spending time at. Once I get the recon done I will let you all know if I found anything good.

Happy wheeling and look forward to getting together with you guys soon!

As for getting blocked when using a different computer, It may be because you're a new member or the way you created your account may have brought with it some restrictions. I can post from different PC without issue. after a certain number of posts this might possibly go away.

When I am on call for work I am pretty pinned down and I don't get relieved until Wednesday. I only rotate in every 6 weeks or so. Once I am clear I will try to be more proactive... What are everyone's normal days off? I have Sunday/Monday off regularly. Weekday evenings are a stretch but may be doable once in awhile. I mentioned that this month is going to busy for me but I will have extra days off I don't usually have so there could be a few Saturdays available.

No worries if you cant make it, I was just throwing it out there just in case.


I have weekends off and I could be wrong but I think both David and Shawn have weekends off too.


Sorry I didn't get a good shot of the general area but here are a few shots from Saturday

Man I really like that truck. Someday I would love to build something similar but with a '64 Chevy base. I am starting to come to grips with I am going to need at least 3 or 4 trucks in my inventory. And my checkbook is hiding in another country thinking about it. I am dying to get some trail time in. I will have some time this Sunday and am willing to go anywhere. Let me know if you feller's want to do some wheeling this weekend...

Where did you source your stickers? It would be cool to have a sheet or two at my disposal. Also, I have some free time Sunday and would enjoy a little meet up and trail ride. Let me know if anyone has anything going on...

The stickers came from all over, I never use stickers normally so I have a massive stack of them piling up. The majority of these came from a Tamiya Sand Scorcher body.

A Sunday run might be fun but I think most of us are waiting for the smoke to clear up a bit. If its not too smokey I'm down.

Wow! Looks like a lot of amazing crawling spots. Itís like that here on the island, but I havenít even gotten a chance to take it out places other than next door dirt field since weíve been here! 3 months of the same driving sucks!
