Alright people.......it's about time to plan for our 10th Annual NVTTORA Easter Mojave Road trip!!! :xdevil::xpimp::thumbs::woot:

This Easter falls on April 5 2015!!!.......so, our trip will be on April 3rd through April 5th 2015!!!! :D
Just filled out my forms for the National Park Special Use Permit and paid for it......get it out of the way early, so I'm not stressed sending it in late! LOL!

We will be going from East to West...in other word.....following the Mojave Road from start to finish!!! :driving:

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


EDIT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>



We will meet at the Avi Hotel Casino outside of Laughlin, NV.

Those of you coming from SoCal or NorCal might want to get a room there Thursday night.....VS driving all night and then again all day!!
Rooms are cheap, and you can get a good inexpensive dinner and breakfast as well........and a hot shower!!!!


Meet date, place and time:
Friday April 3 2015
10:00 am.
@ the Avi hotel gas station and Mini Mart


We can top off our gas tank, and for those with ice chests.....drain their melted water, and re-pack with fresh ice across the bridge in Ft. Mohave, where everything is a Lot less!!!!!!

Head out for the trail head @ 10:30 am.


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

Lunch will be at Fort Paiute. Occupied as an Army post between 1867 to 1868.

Then....onwards to other sites, and to our eventual camping spot in Caruthers Canyon for Friday nights feast and festivities!!!

Communications: CB channel 38

Must haves for everyone: Portable toilet system (a requirement for my National Park Permit!!!)
Then, all of the camping equipment that one would normally have.

Hey Robert, Dave Can't get away for three days. Maybe should come second day to climb the big outer mountain road. I would be missing the festivities of Caruthers Canyon though?? Might have too go just to get pics of straddling the trench for my avatar.

I'm thinking about making Saturday's destination and possible camp sight at Evening Star Mine!! It's a big mining area with plenty of things to explore, no shortage of things to see there.
My first thought would be to make camp there at the Mojave Cross area at Sunrise Rock, but....unless you're there a day or two early, all of the spots around there are taken on Easter weekend.
However.........Just a few miles down Kessler Peak Road, there is plenty of open area's and like I said......plenty to see. I may go out this Sunday or maybe next Sunday to scope it out some more. After everyone went their seperate ways on Sunday after the last Sept. trip, I actually stayed out Sunday night and All day Monday with me and the dogs.......and explored a good bit of this area. But, there is a Lot more there that I didn't check out.......

Here are a couple of pics from there at Evening Star Mine...........And here is a google page with more info about the mine and the area......Click Here!!!

If Ed and Kim actually make it this year, I may have to run out and meet you guys for a night. Keep me posted if that elusive red jeep makes it to the party.

Sweet! Got all the times saved and the luggable loo is on the checklist. :p

I've got a few things I need to do to get the truck prepped before the trip. Do you guys have the Icon coilover spanner wrench at Findlay I could use? Need to raise up the front end now with the extra weight. Also, does anyone in the community do electrical work? I grabbed some HID headlights and don't think I did the install correctly. Only my high beams work. Then I just need to install my CB radio finally lol.
