                     WELCOME TO OUTDOOR ADVENTURE USA!

Thanks for visiting our website.  We cover a wide range of outdoor topics including 4WD trips, vehicle repair and maintenance, camping, hiking, shooting, hunting, bicycling, photography, and a lot more. In connection with all of these activities, we support and promote the use of Ham radio as an indispensable part of any outdoor adventure. We do all this through our website and through our weekly Amateur Radio nets.  

Above, you will see several tabs which will assist you in accessing information on the entirety of our website, including, how to join, our schedule of weekly Amateur Radio nets, and upcoming events, just to mention a few.  Our Forums section tab will take you to in-depth discussions of all of our outdoor and Ham Radio topics.

We continually strive to improve, and we welcome your feedback!


                        2019 FIELD DAY AND SUMMER FEST

OAUSA will hold it's annual Field Day and Summer Fest event on June 21-23, 2019, at the Mt. Pinos Campground in the Los Padres National Forest.  We discovered this camp by accident last year, and it clearly offered us an improvement over our previous location at McGill.  Fortunately, Mt. Pinos is located just a few minutes from McGill, and as before,  it is located about an hour's drive north of Los Angeles.

This will be a family event involving three days of camping in the mountains (elevation 7800 feet), an official ARRL Field Day competition, several trail runs, great food and drink, and an opportunity to relax in the mountains of the Los Padres National Forest.  We will also offer all levels of Amateur Radio license testing on Sunday. 

For those who want to explore the area, there are hundreds of miles of off-pavement 4WD trails, including some of the more challenging, (Miller Jeep Trail) as well as many hiking trails.

The campsite is accessible by paved roads and all vehicles are welcome.
