Just found an abandoned airstrip in Ventura County (SoCal)

ok guys, like the title says, I found an abandoned paved airstrip out here. Me and my friend are going there tonight to check it out and see if we are able to get a car up there to run on it, if we do - videos and a car meet will be organized

Just a heads up!

Wow... If you guys can somehow get legal permission to use the airstrip to have fun there count me in. I am in the OC so I think 1.5hr drive but worth it imo.

Just make sure its abandoned. I'm a helicopter pilot and I fly out west a lot and there is a lot of airports out west that look like they are abandoned but on the FAA charts they are very much open.. Good luck Be Safe
