EDIT: TRIP INFO


Mojave Road Trip Dates: September 210 (Friday) through September 22 2013 (Sunday).

Those of us coming from Las Vegas, will meet around 7:45- 8:00 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 20th @ 9:00 am. We will leave the parking lot by 9:30 - 10:00ish am.

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 exensive than those from SoCal or NorCal!! :shocked: :shocked:

So, for all of the first timers............things that are required:

Your own personal toilet system!!! We HAVE TO PACK OUR SHlT OUT!!!!
This is mandatory, and is one of the conditions of my NPS permit!!!!


COMMUNICATIONS!!!!!! EVERY TRUCK Must have a working CB (min)
and/or a ham!!!! :rockon:


Lots of extra water!!! And also.....bring lots of extra water!!!!! Also......bring Lots of extra water!!!!!!! Not just drinking water, you'll also want to bring containers full of water!!!! We will, after all, be in the middle of the Mojave Desert!!!!

Extra Gas!!!!!! Extra Gas!!!!!! I bring 15 extra gallons........10 will probably do it, but if you can bring a little extra, that will be better!!!! The Mojave Road itself, the main portion, is almost 140 miles........but we will be taking side trips, and that plus letting the trucks run for AC during the days, will eat up gas quickly......again, we're in the middle of the Mojave Desert, and there are no 7-11's or gas stations!!!!


These are a couple of the main things that you need, obviously, food, drinks, camping stuff, etc.........




More info!!!

I was checking out the Mojave National Preserve website, and they have a cool new feature. A Desert Tortoise app for I phones and Androids!!
The idea behind this app (which is FREE!!) is to better understand their whereabouts, and such.
They already want us to take a photo of them when we see them, but with this app......when you use your phone to capture an image, it also inbeds the GPS coordinates so when we forward them to the NPS, they know about where they are.

I encourage everyone going to go ahead and download this app for the trip!!!

I'm contemplating this with Hunter. Need to see if the dates will work.. If you don't mind a OVER BUILT Runner lagging behind! :)


That would be cool if you and Hunter can make one of my three day Mojave Road trips!!
And don't worry about your over built 4Runner, you're not the first over built 1st Gen 4Runner to have made the trip with us!! :D:driving::driving:

Ron and his kid went on this exact trip a couple of years ago in his Over Built '86 1st Gen!! And with No AC!! But, he did have a cool ass mud maker.....I mean coll ass mister system rocking the whole weekend!!! :lmao:

Carl and I are going to get together at his house pretty soon to make a fuel can holder for my rear bumper too........That way I can take the 15 gallons of gas off of my roof rack....free up some space to put other shit up there, thus making more room for my dogs!! :D

Maybe we can all meet over there and knock out both? :saw::welder:
And you may want to bring AT LEAST 15 gallons!! Highly recommended!! :xpimp::driving:
