Talking 15th Annual Easter Mojave Road trip 2020!

April 10-12-2020!

Okay, medical issues aside, it's time to get the hell out of town for Easter again!!! Sorry for not posting this up sooner...…..but for anyone that wants to go on either the full trip starting at the River, or maybe an abbreviated version...…..post up and let me know!!
I Know that I'll be out there for sure!!

I'm okay starting at a point other than the River and having more time to see other cool stuff, or not. Lets go!!
:tequila :

A local Tucson group (mix of vehicles) went earlier this year and has me wondering about going with them next year, but they are talking January to February time frame. They've got me curious as well so I'm thinking I may need to give this road a shot too! LOL

A lot of personal items going on - will not know if I am available to go until a few days before. I will catch up with your plans if available.

I don't know what NV is doing, but CA has closed all parks and wants everyone staying home, so may want to reschedule.

Hey Dave,
Sorry...…..I already knew you wouldn't be able to go. You especially need to stay home and safe!
I'm going out there, but I don't think I'm going to do the entire road. Going up to Caruthers Canyon to camp probably Friday afternoon.

Well, first off, I already knew you weren't coming!! Lol!!

But, I'm going out there, but I don't think I'm going to do the entire road.....maybe just a few parts of it. Going up to Caruthers Canyon to camp probably Friday afternoon. Then, either pack up and mosey around the park, or just stay there and enjoy the incredible scenery!!

So, if anyone who is healthy wants to get out of the house for a day or two or three, let me know. We can still camp, and keep our distance and y'all (whomever) can escape your self imprisonment...…...at least for a short while!!!


We'll do the Entire Mojave Road in September!!!

Plus, there is literally No way possible to close the Mojave National Preserve, as there are no toll gates and literally hundreds of ways into the park.

I also checked the Mojave Preserves website, and while they can't really close the park, the things they Can close down, are the public places. So, visitors centers, the only two (2) public campgrounds (which we don't use anyway) public restrooms, again.....we don't use anyway...….and, that's about it.

So, pretty good chance that the Annual Easter celebration at Sunrise Cross will be canceled for sure, as it always draws a large crowd, mostly locals who live around there anyway.

We're allowed to camp, just keep our distance which is not all that hard to do. So, maybe no sharing food, or definitely use disposable gloves during all cooking sessions, etc...….

But what they Do stress, besides CDC guidelines, is what most all of us already practice...……LEAVE NO TRACE...…….Pack it in, Pack it out!!!

Okay, well...…..if anyone who has been on this trip with me, feel free to come out tomorrow night. But, keep your damn distance!!!

I worked today, so where we Always camp on Friday night, is where you'll find Cleo and I!! This will be the 25th year out of 26 that I've spent out in the Mojave!! The one lone year I missed, was when Paul and I went to Death Valley instead.

Be there or be sequestered at home, but the fresh desert air will cure most ailments!! Especially the being cooped up at home ailment!!

Peace!!

Forgot to take the big Nikon, so I shot a lot of stuff on my I phone! LOL! Also my small Nikon. I don't know how to take them from my phone to here, so if someone smarter at the tech stuff that I, tell me how to do it!

For those of you that decided to stay locked up in your houses, too damn bad, as the Mojave is Open and there were a Lot of people taking advantage of the Great Outdoors...…..as y'all should have done!! I just can't imagine Not being out there for Easter!!!
Lots of waving going on, as everyone was cool and no one bothered anyone, and everyone kept their distance!! We had a fun relaxing time, obviously, I was in no hurry to get anywhere, and still saw a lot!

Maybe I'll go back out there soon again, just to hang out and enjoy the Great Outdoors in the Mojave National Preserve!!
