EDIT: TRIP INFO

[size="5"]
Mojave Road Trip Dates: September 210 (Friday) through September 22 2013 (Sunday).

Those of us coming from Las Vegas, will meet around 7:45- 8:00 ish am here @ Findlay Toyota. We will leave from here, and head down to Laughlin to meet up with those from California.

We will meet up as last year @ the Avi Hotel & Casino just outside of Laughlin, NV ON FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 20th @ 9:00 am. We will leave the parking lot by 9:30 - 10:00ish am.

CB comms will be on Ch. #38. ham on 146.550.

Note: There is a gas station @ the Avi, and it's much less expensive than in Laughlin Or Needles. Also, just about a mile or so away, on the other side of the River....gas is even Way Less $$$ in Ft. Mohave/Bullhead AZ!! In fact, those coming from California, if you can make it to the Avi without stopping for gas in Needles, then you should, Gas prices in Needles are at or over $4.00 per gallon.
Also, Wait to fill up your extra Gas Cans until we get there too!! Saves you the extra weight transporting fuel from your home, and is Way less exensive than those from SoCal or NorCal!!

So, for all of the first timers............things that are required:

Your own personal toilet system!!! We HAVE TO PACK OUR SHlT OUT!!!!
This is mandatory, and is one of the conditions of my NPS permit!!!!


COMMUNICATIONS!!!!!! EVERY TRUCK Must have a working CB (min)
and/or a ham!!!!



Lots of extra water!!! And also.....bring lots of extra water!!!!! Also......bring Lots of extra water!!!!!!! Not just drinking water, you'll also want to bring containers full of water!!!! We will, after all, be in the middle of the Mojave Desert!!!!

Extra Gas!!!!!! Extra Gas!!!!!! I bring 15 extra gallons........10 will probably do it, but if you can bring a little extra, that will be better!!!! The Mojave Road itself, the main portion, is almost 140 miles........but we will be taking side trips, and that plus letting the trucks run for AC during the days, will eat up gas quickly......again, we're in the middle of the Mojave Desert, and there are no 7-11's or gas stations!!!!


These are a couple of the main things that you need, obviously, food, drinks, camping stuff, etc.........




More info!!!

I was checking out the Mojave National Preserve website, and they have a cool new feature. A Desert Tortoise app for I phones and Androids!!
The idea behind this app (which is FREE!!) is to better understand their whereabouts, and such.
They already want us to take a photo of them when we see them, but with this app......when you use your phone to capture an image, it also inbeds the GPS coordinates so when we forward them to the NPS, they know about where they are.

I encourage everyone going to go ahead and download this app for the trip!!!

Robert, you're going to hate me, but I can't make this one either! Wife's out of town and I need to be home to take care of her herd of animals. I'm going to call you in a week or two, though, I want to come out to Findlay so master Bret can do some much need maintenance to my truck!

Have fun, be safe!

yeah yeah.......you always got some excuse! And as for Brett, you'll have to go to the Seattle area, as that's where he lives now! But he doesn't work on cars anymore.........he works on the Big ass machines..........the ones that Make the other big machines!!
But, you can still come up, as Rich works on all of our trucks, as well all of my friends, family and customers!! He, I and Brett are all good friends....and he is the only one that works on my034runner too! He has helped a few of our people from out of state as well!!
So, we still have the right guy to work on your truck!! And he's Faster than Brett!

Okay Mike, hopefully, you can get the whole three days off this time! There's 70 + miles of stuff you didn't get to see on Friday.....and of course........the stuff you didn't get to experience at the end of the trip as well......

We had 4 kids on our Easter trip. If Bobby comes, he will bring one or two of his kids. If Mike makes it, he has 2 daughters.......

I actually just saw this and baring a test being scheduled the day after this trip I am in.

I'll keep you posted as the month rolls on. Classes start the 25th and I will have a full answer then.
