I'll add more info as we go along here..... Add these dates to your calender!!!!

Head out for the trail head @ 10:30 am. (in a perfect world!)


The trail head is right on the banks of the Colorado River!!! Pretty bitchin!!!!!

Mojave Information


Mojave National Preserve is nature's playground. It features canyons and mountains, former military mines and outposts and opportunities to explore year-round.


Rose-colored sand dunes, volcanic cinder cones, Joshua tree forests, and carpets of wildflowers are all found at this 1.6 million acre park. A visit to its canyons, mountains and mesas will reveal long-abandoned mines, homesteads, and rock-walled military outposts. Located between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Mojave provides serenity and solitude from the crowds of major metropolitan areas.

Mojave Desert experiences change with the seasons. Infrequent winter snows sparkle on the mountains. With enough moisture, spring wildflowers carpet the desert with vivid colors. Summers are hot, so adventurers head for the higher elevations such as Mid-Hills and the New York Mountains. The cooler temperatures of fall mark hunting season. A network of dirt roads provides year round opportunities to explore by four-wheel drive vehicle.

Plant and animal life varies by elevation. Desert tortoises burrow in creosote bush flats, while the black and yellow Scotts oriole nests in Joshua trees higher up the slopes. Mule deer and bighorn sheep roam among pinyon pine and juniper in the parks many mountain ranges.

Kind of surprised.....this is Always the busier of the two trips.......and the one I usually have to put a cap or limit on how many trucks I'll take.
So, good news........I don't think I'll need to cough up a bunch of $$ to get the NPS permit after all, which is cool, as it saves Me some $$!! Lol!

I'm actually kind of surprised that more people haven't signed up, the last time I had a really really small group, was before I decided to make this an annual trip!! I used to go out to the Mojave Preserve with me and one or two other trucks, and that was cool. Then I made an annual trip, minimum attendance on this trip has been like seven (7) trucks, and an all time high of 20 trucks one year.....fun, but I swore to Never take that big of a group again!

But, whoever shows up will be in for a treat! Beautiful weather, flowers blooming and whiskey flowing at camp!! LOL!!

So, if anyone actually reads this, hopefully you can come out with us!!

You're more than welcome to bring your ass out with us bro!! Haven't seen you since one of the Big Bear trips a few years back!
Our site here has took major hits since our former short term prez lost the domain, and people scattered around to facebook clubs and shit like that.
But, I normally have more people on this trip from our Toy120 site anyway.......just a weird ass year........
