Second Annual Run - Julian Banner and Borrego Squeeze, April 20-21, 1996Once again the Manx Dune Buggy Club ventured to Borrego Valley. We stayed at the Butterfield Campground which has a store, resturant, bar , and lots of trees. The first day we took 42 dune buggies on the challenging run through Fish Creek to Ocotillo Wells. The famous Squeeze and Dropoff proved to be formidable but we got through without a single mishap. Lunch was again served in the shade of the beautiful Fish Creek canyon by the crew of our Chuck Wagon (only because Jim Guthries' LifeGuard Manx needs work). The second day we took a circular route via a dirt road through the Oraflamme Mountains and Rodrigez Canyon. The club enjoyed a great sandwich buffet that was carried all the way on top of Bruce Meyers old #4.

Wide cars are a tight fit at the SQUEEZE !
The Dropoff is an extremely steep hill that is one-way i.e. DOWN !
