Hollister Hills, Esprit de Four Safety Clinic?

Will be on Saturday 16 May. I did it last year, my 2014 JGC 3.0 CRD was barely 2 months old and it was fun! I learned a lot and didn't want to scratch my rig.

Link to last year's thread: Hollister Hills, Esprit de Four Safety Clinic?

Info / register: Safety Clinic

Anyone else want to join?

pinetar, if you do go, let me know. Either way I'll be looking for other JGCs there. There weren't too many last year, maybe 2 or 3 others. The class had good attendance, about 30 rigs is what I remember but that detail is probably in my thread from last year.

My in-laws used to live in Bishop. I spent a lot of time in the eastern Sierra Nevada. Beautiful country out that way. Is that where you're located?

I will definitely keep you informed if I do end up going. Sounds like a good excuse to get out there, whether or not I have my lift installed yet. And I'm so close, it'd be a shame to not try.

And I'm further up North in Reno, Nevada. I grew up here and love the surroundings. The inner city and casinos, not so much. Bishop is a gorgeous little town though. I always stop there on my travels down South.

Re: Hollister Hills, Esprit de Four Safety Clinic?

I wish this was more towards the end of summer...I am already leaving for a 10 day vacation on May 30th so taking a couple days so close to it would be really tough and it's a 6 hour drive from Orange County so I would want to take a few days rather than just the Saturday. I love the Bishop area and usually do a fishing trip up there every year (June Lake Loop). Unfortunately I have to miss that this year too because of my Vacation (my group is going the second week of June, again too close to my trip to Hawaii). I saw in the linked thread that last year they had one in September, are they doing that again this year?

Yes they most likely will. I'm not a club member but I recall they do it 2X a year in May & Sep. May usually sells out while Sep usually does not. That's what I remember from them last year.

You might have some local options, try searching for local 4X4 clubs. Also, try exploring Hungry Valley SVRA, at the top of the grapevine, or any of the other SVRAs.

Yeah, I have been thinking about joining a local 4x4 club. The only problem is I don't know where (location) to join. I recently moved to San Diego for work but I kept my place in Orange too as I spend alot of time up there on the weekend. And I also go out to Moreno Valley (where my parents, sister and her family live). Most of the time when I go off roading, it is with my Dad (in his 85' CJ) and my nephew (in his 04' Wrangler) so I think it might be better to join one out there with them. Lol, maybe I can join 3, one in each area.

It sounds like you and your dad and nephew have a wheeling club already!

Re: Hollister Hills, Esprit de Four Safety Clinic?

Here are some videos of what we did at last year's clinic. These aren't my rig. This is in the Obstacle Course, in the Upper Ranch at Hollister Hills, on "Frame Twister" and "Stair Stepper".


"Frame Twister"
(2 minutes, red Wrangler; annoying music, just mute it)



(5 minutes; older, lifted Grand Cherokee on "Frame Twister")



"Stair Stepper"
(30 seconds, '92 Explorer on "Stair Stepper")




To be able to do this on my stock JGC with /50 series street tires, in a rig that's able to take my babe out for a night on the town, or to drive comfortably across the country putting in 800+ mile days, is just great.

Oh, and I did these without scratching my rig. I'll be sure to take pictures and video next month.


Can't wait!

Re: Hollister Hills, Esprit de Four Safety Clinic?

The clinic is this Saturday. My wife will come along again, like last year. I'll take pictures and videos and post them here. I didn't take any last year.

pinetar will you be there? Hope to see you there.

I'll look for WK2s - last year, of some 25-30 rigs in the class, there were about 2-3 other WK2s, IIRC. Hardly any. But we were the most comfortable rigs out there!

Unfortunately, it looks like I won't be making it to this one. I just checked their registration page and it appears they are sold out for this May event.

I should've been more aware of that, but there's always September or next year I suppose.

Sorry I won't be seeing you there, but be sure to get some shots for us to preview and have fun!
