Re: Finding tracking fields - SoCal
Use google maps satellite view to scope out potential places, then do a drive by.
Not likely to be the case by you on this large a scale but one of my favorite tracking places nearby (a mere 2 mile drive) is a church. They have a large amount of property for being in the city, enough to hold a decent sized trial and we can track at that same location every day of the week but never cross tracks. I go to parks that aren't too popular as well. I am actually very spoiled for a city dweller when it comes to tracking. I have many options within 5 miles of me.
