    That's sounds great. I'd like to join the ride, but I don't know about the camping, medical reasons. I have a place I can crash at in cathedral city, not far away at all, so I can join the rides.

    You'll need a tent, sleeping bag, and a chair. Campsites are $20 a night splitting the cost between us and we usually squeeze a few in per site. Allowed 2 vehicle per sit anything over 2 is an additional $5 per vehicle. There is no store on site just bathrooms and showers. If you need supplies its just a short ride to get them. Mecca Beach is just about a mile past the salton Sea recreational headquarters. We usually shoot for site 133 way on the far end and get the one next to it if need be. So if anyone gets there fist go for 133. Where to meet? just get there and show up. If you want to cook then cook, If you want to ride to eat there is Mecca just a short ride to get there. Garibaldi's is popular with the group Mexican food at a fair price.

    Here's a couple pictures from 2 weeks ago.
