Contingency plan?

Calico campground is closed until April 3, at the earliest, as Anak posted in another thread, and whether itíll reopen by SoCal Fest weekend is anybodyís guess. So Iím wondering if the Board has considered any contingency plan.

If the event gets cancelled ó and Iím hoping it wonít ó letís wheel that weekend regardless.

Re: Contingency plan?

On top of the campground closure, we are now under a statewide stay at home order.

I hope everyone stays healthy, which is far more important than anything else right now.

Re: Contingency plan?

My dog Maui is enforcing (at least) 6' social distancing on walks.

I'm sure we could all meet somewhere and go wheeling. I could do dispersed camping if that is the only option.

Re: Contingency plan?

I think we should just keep that weekend open, and see what develops as timing gets closer.

Re: Contingency plan?

The Calico website has been updated. The reference to an expected April 3 reopening has been replaced with a notice that the campground is now closed "until further notice." Not unexpected.

Re: Contingency plan?

Yeah, we need to call the event off for now... I just can't see people feeling socially or financially safe enough to make this happen next month. Hopefully things will normalize(ish) at some point soon, and we can probably try to do something in the Fall.


As much as it sucks to cancel, there are worse losses out there for a lot of people.

Everyone just stay safe, in whatever way, means, or form works for you and yours.

Re: Contingency plan?

If anyone wants to drive by my house and wave, just let me know when you will be by. Maybe we can do a Jeep parade somewhere.

San Bernardino county has specifically banned "vehicle parades". $1000 fine, same as not wearing a mask.

I'm still available for some trail riding, I'm perfectly fine sitting 10 feet apart for lunch.
