Default Baja by the Bay

Found a great place to run this thing, but its all on-road. Abandoned 2+ acre parking lot right by the water.

Yeah its not easy to find a good place to run the Baja around here, I used to do it a lot right by my house in Tilden park in the Berkeley hills, but apparently it's illegal in the park, almost got a $400 ticket but thankfully the ranger was nice and just warned me.

2 stroke engines are illegal in the park
RC cars are illegal in the park (apparently even like....mini electric ones if they catch you)
Noise of that level of any kind is illegal in the park
damaging the trail surfaces is illegal in the park
gasoline in uncertified containers (IE. my OFNA fuel bottle) is illegal in the park

so yeah. lol

Dam those rangers dont mess around when it comes to their parks do they...and to just pass on some info i heard through a rumor...there are some sand dunes on the 4 like if your headed to the antioch area...dont know how far they are off the highway but it might be worth it...i'm gonna take a drive out that way this weekend and see if i can find them and if there even able to get to...i'll post with what i find

yeah thats cool. Sand is one thing I've yet to even try my baja on, dont even own the right tires.

I'm thinking about trying out ocean beach (some deserted part along the great highway or something)
