After my attempts to be prepared for the Mojave trip I didnt even pack a jacket or a long sleeve shirt! Good thing we had a full bar to keep me warm.

Generally speaking, I would suggest keeping the beers on ice until everyone is parked for the evening. Some off-roading requires considerable focus, especially as a newbie.

If you are referring to me. It did not get cold in the Mojave until after dark when we were all parked up and had our camps set up. And yes I agree with you about not drinking and driving especially as a newbie and that is why I didnt have any beers until after we were done driving for the day.

I think that he forgot to look at the part where you said that we had a "full Bar" That would denote that we were camped, because you aren't going to be rolling with a full bar!!

Not referring to anyone. Just my tip of the day. On the last trip I went on, the groups previous trip in the same area had 1 rollover, and it might have been partially due to the beverage choice of the driver.

I understand the concern about drinking and driving while wheeling. The easiest rule is to apply the same alcohol limits to offroading as what is applied on the highway i.e. a beer or 2 during the day is fine. Just don't drink any more. People that go over the limit should not be surprised if their keys get taken during the day. Save the partying for the campsite.

Responsible wheelers, don't mess up the surroundings and environment. Pack out what they pack in. Leave the place better than what they found it. You will also find that they are not the folks who wheel under the influence, even if they have one or 2 beers durign the day.

The problem lies with irresponsible wheelers, who tend to drink more than they can handle and make a mess of everything. I can't even recall how many Budweiser cans I have picked up on the trail and by campsites. Reason 1 why I don't drink Budweiser.

i agree, as with all our runs, NO alcohol is allowed on OR before a run, PERIOD. if we see anyone drinking and driving (trail or street) we will ask to dump it out, drinking and wheeling, creates a bad image of our sport.
If they refuse, we will call the police, period. they will never be asked to join us again. now once at camp (or home) knock yourself out

I know urine is considered mostly sterile but, in all my years as a scout and then as an avid backpacker (even did the Colorado Trail) I have never heard this as a good idea. I remember something like 200 ft from a water source as the minimum for letting your bodily functions go.

Firm believer in "pack it in, you pack it out" and leave it better than you found it.

Thanks for the NOLS reference. Bullet
