Welcome to the club. I'm in Marin Country (please spare me the comments) :p Not much close by for the Raptor but plenty of Starbucks and In and Out curbs to jump. I really like the area north of Reno/Sparks out in BLM space. Off the main highway 447 by Pyrimad Lake there are tons of roads you can bomb down at pretty high speeds. Use caution as always, the desert can change quickly. Washouts are pretty common.

Welcome! I'm in San Jose too.

I've been in Hollister a couple times, and did some basic training with Esprit de Four and TheDrivingCompany. But yeah, it is usually crowded, and much more fun with dirt bikes.

Also looking forward to recommendations for off-roading, but I'm a complete noob.

North Bay over here! Welcome to the place. Prairie City is a good spot to spend an afternoon getting comfortable with the trucks ability. Nevada is the real playground, I'm thinking of a trip out there in August/September.

Can't think of a better combo, remind me again before you go. I haven't had any trigger time since leaving the Marines a year ago and moving to commieland. Had to sell all my tools before I left North Carolina too :(
