Hey @Kent R , I searched the thread from last year for info on trailers. Is this trip still suitable for them?
Like last year, only small off road adventure trailers can make it. I thought I posted it last year but It was probably a PM>

You responded to someone saying that this trip would be more suitable due to having a basecamp. I know several people that have taken the same trailer through Mojave but not which specific trails. I will consider my alternatives if not advised.

Thank you.

It's an Opus 4 Off Road. It is ~18'x7' closed and 21'x7'-14' when open depending on if I have the annex attached. My tow vehicle is a Ram 2500 Power Wagon.

You will be able to make it to base camp, we would need to make sure to park you out of the way. As for the Mojave Road, you might make it but we don't want to stall traffic while we are on the trail so we would ask that you not travel on the Mojave Road with our group. There are plenty of locations within the preserve you can take that trailer either before or after the workday.

The Wagon is about that. Thank you!!!
Our TLC gets about a 225-250 mile range. We gassed up in Needles last time and had plenty to spare. Afterwards, we gassed up in Barstow.

With so much interest is there no way to add another cleanup site or additional weekend for those that couldn’t go on the first one?
Unfortunately no, we work directly with the Mojave Preserve upper Management and they need to have staff at all our locations when we are conducting volunteer events.
Our goal is to have two events in Mojave and add events in Death Valley once that connection becomes more solidified.

The good thing in your favor is that people are dropping from the list and I am adding new members that have posted here.

See PM
