last minute thoughts

2020 New Years Eve, here it comes. Will it be special, memorable, exciting?

California New Years Camping



Total Escape Adventures: During the Y2K downpour in San Diego, we were camping 100 miles to the east in clear windy conditions. Eastward, way out there, in the deserts of Anza Borrego. Having fun outdoors. Day hikes, mountain biking, slot canyons, stargazing w/ new friends.

If the whole computer world fell apart during Y2K, we would not even know about it. Cell phone coverage was very spotty. Overall, about forty people joined Total Escape out camping to ring in the year for 2000.

Yep, now we are 20 years older and 20 pounds heavier, but we still love cheap outdoor vacations, more than ever. And DanaMite is yearning to get back down to the deserts.

JUST putting out feelers for this possible event (LAST MINUTE), this holiday season. If you are interested in CHEAP high desert (dirt road) camping for New Years week, let us know. We will need at least 20 people to make this trip happen, with pricing kept at under $100 per person.

Mojave Desert location: SATURDAY NIGHT thru WEDNESDAY (Dec 28 - Jan 1)
