    It's time to plan my "Spring Break Non-sanctioned Overland Bound, Overland Bound trip" with Overland Bound Members. This year, it seems that Mojave Road has spurred my interest and others who went to Death Valley for Spring Break this year.

    So, I'm putting out the call to those who went this year or those who would like to go next year (April 2019) for at least 4-5 nights (Sunday through Friday) in Mojave Preserve on the Mojave Road. It's approx 130 miles with many sights and scenery, moderate overland terrain, water crossings, lava tube caves, dry lake beds etc.

    The itinerary, plans and routes are still in the works, and once I get my ducks in a row (no offense to my "ducklings" from this year) I will start to formulate plans, guides, routing etc for those who are participating. I am estimating the trip will be Drive to Mojave City/Bullhead, AZ area on Sunday, rally up, gas up and then start the adventure. I plan to be in Mojave through Thursday afternoon/Friday morning and then head back to our homes/areas that day before the Easter Weekend (I AIN'T missing those deviled eggs!)

    I know it's a few months (5 months approx) until the trip, but I like to have a Spring Overland Trip planned as it is a great time to visit the deserts and gives plenty of time for members to request off (many of my friends, and those who went are public service and vacation requests need to be far in advance, Thanks for your service!)

    I am going to limit the members to only 20 for now, so if you are a confirmed yes, please mark that and if you are a maybe, please mark that![​IMG]

    We just ran this for the first time two weeks ago. For anyone on the fence about this run, DO IT! Also, with four days on tap, you have time to run the whole way down the Mojave River to Manix, don't bail out at Afton. Camp at Triangles offered some amazing views at sunset and sunrise, that the sand if the river was a super fun drive.

    Very interested in going on this trip. Is there a way around the water crossing? What do we expect the water height to be around this time?

    Remember, if you are IN or Maybe to go, mark it in the Rally Point. That is where I'm keeping track of participants.


    @Jacob Silberfarb It is hard to say how deep it will be at that time in April....Plan for at least 2-3' deep though...
