Alright people.......it's about time to plan for our 11th Annual NVTTORA Easter Mojave Road trip!!! :xdevil::xpimp::thumbs::woot:

This Easter falls on March 27 2016 !!!.......so, our trip will be on March 25 to March 27 2016 !!!! :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 March 25 2016
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. (in a perfect world!)


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
2 meter (ham) frequency 146.550


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.
Tent, camp chairs, tables, BBQ and or stove, fire wood, WATER, WATER, WATER.....and also, WATER!!!!


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

For those of us coming from Las Vegas..................

Meet @ Findlay Toyota

:cool:
Darn, I already made plans to run it Wed - Sat of the same week. Next year for sure.

No worries, but if you decide you want to go on Easter weekend, just post up or pm me.
I talked to Johnnie last week, he said he and the SoCal group weren't going out........or maybe it was him that wasn't going out. :xpimp:
A lot of the times, we cross paths with you all, and sometimes camp at Beale Mt with you all on Saturday's.

Now you're going for four days? That's what I do now on my Toyota120 Mojave Road trip in September. So, I assume you're going to do the entire road this year?

Thanks, if anything changes I'll let you know.
Yes, my buddy and I are spending the night at Avi and starting fresh on Thu. I hope to run it w/Johnnie again in Sept but we'll see how that goes, that's a long time from now. :cool:

If you don't run with Johnnie in September, you can ride with us. usually the third (3rd) weekend of September. It's a 3 day trip, with the option for whomever wants to stay out for the fourth day (Mon). :grin2:

Who's that? I need you to Copy and paste the List and add yourself! I have to take into account everyone going. If I pass Seven (7) trucks, I need to get my permit. The last few trips, I haven't bothered.....as I met the minimum for not having a permit.....:xpimp:

Thanks, I was the Used Car manager for the Henderson Lexus store in a previous life. The 4runner was a non-running trade in a few years back that i bought and took home and gutted and completely rebuilt as needed.. have been slowing building it over the last couple yrs. I've had more rigs than I can count since moving to NV 11yrs ago from Oregon.

I've got all of the above mentioned gear. Looking forward to meeting you guys and doing a bit of group trail running. I was just down near nipton for an overnighter recently in the Joshua tree forest. Did Henderson to Nipton rd. in the dirt via pipline rd. (out the end of Horizon Ridge Pkwy south) to the Eldorado Valley Powerline road. Went and peeked in on the two springs that are out there along the east side of the mculloughs on my way thru.. conditions are grand down that way right now. for trail running and camping both
