The Southern California Unimog community has been holding yearly gatherings for over 20 years.  These gatherings have been held at a variety of locations ranging from the high Sierra mountains to the low desert near the Salton Sea.  This year, for variety, the location was in the Mojave Desert near Barstow, CA.  The chosen campsite was at the San Bernadino County Park at the Calico Ghost Town.  We were in Thor (our Mercedes 1017A truck) that has 4-season living quarters so we were comfortable.

This year's gathering was an overwhelming sucucess.  To my knowledge, other than normal mechanical issues like leaking fuel lines, etc. there was no vehicle damage nor any injuries.


The link table below contains some selected excerpts of the event.  These photos were taken with my brand-new Sony A7R4 60MP digital camera.

Coordinating a large number of participants in an event such as this is quite a challenge.  Many thanks to Joe, Alan and the other individuals that organized this gathering and put the thought-work into selecting a nice venue.
