yes it is safe they have lots of security plus its well lit.
We decided to camp in the dirt. One other vehicle will be joining us. Anyone who wants to join us can contact me. As we get closer we can coordinate and pick a camp spot and decide on where to meet the rest of the group in the morning.

20 Rigs, two days and no comms requirements? I'm out.

Ryan has stated that he has HAM. This is a bunch of guys getting together to do a road many are interested in. Done every day , no requirements. This road is run by single rigs all the time. I have found that in the desert and mountains all comms are spotty. Best way I've found and used is buddy system.

I run a CB (old school). I need to get my HAM license.

I'll probably be joining you guys if you're camping near the meeting point.
 
Not much to see at the meeting point, but about 2mi east is the true start of the Mojave Road, on the west bank of the Colorado River, directly across from Fort Mojave.

Appears you can camp there on the bank of the river.

I missed the 1st trip and I'm free that weekend. What's the daytime temps going to be like during this time of year?

Count me in, I just RSVP. I'll most likely be down on Thursday night and camp at the trail head. For comms, I'll be using a CB. What channel will everybody be using?

If you are a definite on this trip, please send an email to ryan@overlandbound.com so we can consolidate and go over final prep details.

Thanks
