We will meet at Oceano Dunes from 1 - 2 pm and then head out via caravan to the TV Tower Trail Head in Santa Margarita (about 45 minutes away from Pismo) for a scenic Jeep Trail Ride. This is a very easy well maintained out and back trail. We'll park at the top TV Tower for a scenic view then return down TV Tower Road and Old Coach Road.
Safety is number one and Jeeping is an inherently dangerous sport. We will lead a group of newbie Jeepers into the Dunes to discuss various topics such as- airing down, driving on the dunes, speed tips, how to navigate a bowl, recovery options, and what to do in case of a rollover.
Let's hit the dunes and spin some tires. We will start staging at the main Event Campsite near Post 5 to wheel in Oceano Dunes. There will be a general orientation and overview of logistics, safety, & Tread Lightly expectations. Different groups will be lead out by a designated trail leader to wheel in the dunes. We'll head out at 10:30am and be on CB channel 15.
We will be offering Kids the opportunity to create custom Jeep Stencils with construction paper and finger paint (these would make a great Father's Day present). Please meet near the registration about 1:30 for the Kids Krafts event. Ages from 4-11, but any kids are welcome, even big kids who drive Jeeps.
Head out into the dunes with your Pooches! We love dogs at Jeep Beach West and want to get together to head out as a group. As always please clean up after pets and ensure they are properly secured and safe throughout the weekend.
Plan to get together to speak "Jeep" and show off our rides and mods, share suggestions and ask questions. We will start gathering about 4:30pm at the main camping area. Please head to the blue canopy tent for registration packets if you haven't picked them up. Packets include product giveaway ticket, stickers and a voting slip. Please place the ticket in the jar with the product you want. If your number matches, you'll get the prize. After viewing the jeeps, cast your vote for best of show. There will be a vote for best of show, for each class- leaf sprung and coil sprung. Register for the Hill Climb Challenge on Sunday. About 6:00pm, we will begin the product giveaway. For anyone gathering trash on the beach, we will give away a Trasharoo to who collects the most trash
We will be hanging out in the camp area after the show 'n shine. There will be a group of volunteers sponsoring the hot dog roast and we should have plenty for everyone, but just in case have a backup such as your favorite camp food or enjoy local dining options such as Fin's Restaurant or Rib Line by the Beach.
After you Jeep's been flexing all day, you should too. Even better, flex with fellow Jeepers during Sunset Yoga. Jessica Sousa, a leading certified yoga instructor and Jeep enthusiast will start the day right. Jessica Sousa, from Modesto, California, has been specially trained in Vinyasa/flow, power/strength, and Kids yoga styles although she teaches and is trained in all forms of yoga. Our session will be somewhat of a mix of a a vinyasa flow and a deep relaxation class. Plan to keep it light and fun while also challenging our bodies. Sunset will be at 6:40pm.
The folks at Poly Performance are not only Dana60 sponsors this year, but also providing breakfast for everyone to start the day right before the parade.
We will line up just North of line up North of the dumpsters 35.09314, -120.63011 . Look for the Jeeps. There is no line up order. The route will be a loop North returning back to Sand Highway entrance. After the parade, feel free to wheel in the dunes, join the hill climb, hang on the beach, or head back home.

After the parade, feel free to wheel in the dunes, hang on the beach our head back home. We will have a hill climb challenge as well after the parade for those interested. We will plan to eat lunch at the bottom of the hill climb. Here is a quick video of the 2014 hill climb challenge. GPS coordinates of the Hill Climb Challenge are 35.04456, -120.62052
Rugged Radios will be demonstrating and training on communications best practices when offroading, including the pros and cons of the various communications methods such as CB, and UHF / VHF. Please stop by their vendor booth at 2pm to hear the seminar, ask questions and grab some cool coozies.
