Thumbs up 13th Annual Toy120 Mojave Road trip?!

Hey, for all of you still active here........as well as new members and even those on that FB and tweaker stuff............

I'm thinking the third weekend of September.....so, the 21st to the 24th of September 2018!!!

Lets see who is still alive and wants to go, as most of y'all haven't gone in a long time now.......and it would be great to see some of you guys again!!

And, if someone wants to cross post this to your FB page or whatever........only taking a MAX of 15 trucks........less would be preferred!


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<EDIT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >

So, I'm going to just cap this out at six (6) trucks, so I don't have to dick around with pulling a permit from the NPS!!!!

However......should we have 7 ++ COMMITED to going for sure, I'll make it happen!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Alright now boys and girls(s)..........it's time to plan our 13th Annual Toyota120 Mojave Road trip!!!!!!!



This is a legendary, great trip, and a great time and adventure is guaranteed for all!!!!!

DATES!!!!

September 21-23 (24th for anyone who can stay another day!) 2018!!!!!! (third weekend of Sept.)

We will run it from the beginning @ The River........to the end @ Afton Canyon.

More details to follow!!! ]

8th Annual Toy120 Mojave trip report
EDIT: TRIP INFO


Mojave Road Trip Dates: September 21 Friday through September 23 (Sunday), and the 24th for an extra night and day 2018 Sunday).
(Monday)
I will be staying out for an extra day (24th) again.......in case anyone else wants to stay out Sunday night!!!

Those of us coming from Las Vegas, will meet around 8:30 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 21st @ 9:30 am.....10:30 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 anything else anyone forgot there @ the Smiths. We will leave the parking lot by 10:45 am-11:30 am (in a perfect world).
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!!

I saw this yesterday and yes did a cruise by. Don't know about going as (listing excuses now) may have to work, no one at my house would want to come along, too hot, the dog ate my homework, etc.

Stop!! We old time Toy120 vets need to get out and go on this trip!! Show these kids on FB how it's supposed to be done! All you're doing, is showing them how to make excuses!!

But really, I've given everyone plenty of advanced notice!! Plus, You need to finish the damn trip anyway!!

Mate, there are so many places to wheel. My guess is many people have already done Mojave and are doing other destinations. Bit like the Big Bear Braii, it ran its course.

Me personally, every spare dollar is going to my 6 month re-build.

Yeah, maybe.......but I don't think so. I'd say it's more to do with the whole fb crap and whatnot than anything. Guess what, people are still out there all of the time.

And when Your Albino beast is done, guess we'll have to go to Johnson Valley to watch you compete!!

Do you have a date in mind yet? I'd love to figure out a plan and invite some friends to tag along.

Yeah, I think the 21st to the 24th of September 2018 should work. It should be cooled down enough so as not to boil during the days.

Those dates are for four days, if you can only do the three days, then it's the 21st to 23rd.......I'm staying out for an extra day as I normally do.......so anyone who can swing the Monday too.......the more the merrier!!

Any particular things needed for this run? Armor? Lift? I've got some friends with stock 4Runners, FJ60 and Jeeps who need a heads up beforehand.

Spare tires, Extra fuel, minimum 10 gallons or more, I usually bring 15-20 gallons. Water, Water, Water, Water.............and don't forget the WATER!!

Lifts and armor are always good to have, but Great tires, Highlift, Co2 and/or good air pump (doesn't have to be as elaborate as yours!) are must haves.
Communications!!!!!! You Need a way to communicate, whether it's CB or Ham or both........need a way to talk to each other.

Recovery gear........at least the basics should always be on Everyone's trucks!!! Don't need to go out and buy a winch, but good Off road tow straps, tree savers straps, shackles, shovels, etc........If we need a winch, I have one........it would take a hell of a screw up for us to need to use a winch on the Mojave Road........but, it could happen, always be ready on the desert!!

All participants are expected to bring their own portable toilet system, as we have to pack out our own shlt.........

Then the usual camping stuff and supplies of course!

Oh......and WATER!!!!!!!!!
