8th Annual Toy120 Mojave trip report

EDIT: TRIP INFO

[size="5"]
Mojave Road Trip Dates: September 18(Friday) through September 20 2015 (Sunday).

I will be staying out for an extra day (21st) again.......in case anyone else wants to stay out Sunday night!!!

Those of us coming from Las Vegas, will meet around 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 18th @ 9:30 am.....10:00 am. We will go over the bridge into Ft Mohave, AZ to the Smiths to fill up our gas tanks (gas is Way less expensive in AZ!), pick any extra Ice, Firewood and any thing else anyone forgot there @ the Smiths. We will leave the parking lot by 10:30 am-11:00 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 expensive 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!!!

Yep!! I'll go to the Desert and lead whomever wants to come, don't really care about the beach......I've seen the ocean before!!
And I've seen a lot of the desert too, and that's really where I like to go, aside from the mountains, like Big Bear!!
Everyone now has a choice between two great annual events!!!
