I'm near Santa Cruz, used to live in Grass Valley, wife was born and raised there and all her family is there. Have not played much in the dirt around here, couple dirt roads is all. California sucks like that, too many fences and no trespassing signs. Have had some fun in Death Valley though, and Utah/Arizona..... lots of trails there.

I was a good kid, now I'm making up for it....

Nice, congrats! Yeah this is by far the smoothest driving vehicle I've ever owned. And the only one so far that I can honestly say I LOVE. Welcome to the forum, fellow Solano Countyan! I'm in Vallejo. Let me know if you ever wanna take a backcountry drive some time!

I'm not too familiar with the Santa Cruz area, other than the beaten path in and out, and the city of SC itself. My in-laws have a little weekend home outside Nevada City, I love it out that way. Grass Valley and Nevada City are both such cool little towns. I would move there in second if I could. My in-laws are about .5mi from Scott's Flat reservoir as-the-crow-flies, and 3 minutes to the Tahoe Nat'l Forest border. I haven't got to do too much exploring out there, but there are some nice drives and some gorgeous scenery. A lot of locked gates too, like you said, but still plenty of public road to explore. Hoping to get out there a lot more this summer.

There's more there than here, but it's still California. I've paddled across Scotts Flat a few times. We have lots of nice scenery and places to go here, but I just love the northern end of the state. But I hate having to go through the bay area or across the valley to get to it. We will eventually get back there, we have property up there and still call it home. But work keeps me here for now. Not a bad place to be stuck though.
