Talking 14th Annual Easter Mojave Road trip!!!

Easter weekend this year is April 19-21 2019 for our Easter trip!!! It should be an awesome trip with great weather.......and potentially, with all the rain and snow..........an awesome Bloom of the desert wildflowers and wildlife as well!!!!!

I'll try and post more up later on......

Those of us from Las Vegas will meet here at Findlay Toyota around 8:30 am, those from Kal will meet us at the Smiths Food King in Fort Mohave, AZ. That is where we can refuel and save $$$ doing it. If you are bringing extra fuel tanks (Minimum of 10 extra gallons recommended, more is better), wait until getting there to fill them, thus saving you $$$ and extra weight for your drive down.

Also, don't forget to bring WATER, WATER, WATER, weed, WATER, WATER..........................and just in case, WATER!!

And of course, food, camping stuff, etc............

Friday Fort Mohave to Caruthers Canyon........with other points in between.

Saturday, Caruthers Canyon, to the Far side of the Mojave National Preserve to the Foshay Pass.........taking you up to unbelievable views on both sides of the Providence Mountains!!!!! From there, drive past Kelso Dunes (I'll tell you more about them later)..........and to the Kelso Depot, which is now the main visitors center for the National Park Service!! Therre, if we can get there early enough, take a tour of the Historical Depot, if the Café is still open, maybe get some ice cream or something..........Plus, last chance to use a bathroom with Running Water!!!!!!!! Then to Beale Mountain for Saturday night camp/party site.

Easter Sunday..........Pack up after a good Easter Sunday Breakfast, then on to the Mojave Mail Box, Aiken Cinder Mine and then the Lave Tubes!! Then, onto towards Afton Canyon!!!!! All of this, with cool stops and info over the radio's.

Everyone needs COMMS, Ham, cb, Their own personal toilet system, we WILL Pack out or own ****!! If you don't have some type of system, get one, or make one, it's as simple as a 5 gal bucket, trash bags and waste gel powder that you can get at Wal-Mart or any sporting goods store..........

I'll add more later.

In the all new Albino Monster truck?! That would be awesome mate!!! This is the Three day trip, as I don't have any vacation time left until June. The September trip we'll do the four days again though, as I'll be on vacation!!!

This trip we conclude on Easter Sunday........with the trip through beautiful Afton Canyon!!

Well for one, I bought myself a ham radio so I probably wont need yours again. I recently got rid of my 1990 4Runner and ripped the CB out of it. The small Cobra 19 peaked and tuned by a CB shop to replace your fried unit. The other surprises are a surprise lol.

I regret not going on previous trips over the years when members were active. I always just sat at the computer and lurked. So many missed opportunities especially the funny stories you told me over the camp fire about all the crazy **** you guys did.
