Another great Camp Pendleton run. Great chow provided by Jock Strap. Free flowing Stone IPA. Traditional USMC Birthday cake cutting ceremony honoring the oldest and youngest Marines present.
Exciting Eagle, Turkey and Walker trails.

To drive on Camp Pendleton you need a valid drivers license, proof of insurance, and current vehicle registration. If the gate sentries ask your destination tell them "The 17 Area for a Marine Corps Birthday run". Then wish them a "Happy Birthday Marine!".
If they ask about a sponsor tell them LtCol M.H. Collier USMC (Ret) and LtCol G. Eckhoff USMC (Ret.)

Base regulations say dogs must be on a leash at all times.
