Navigating the Mojave Desert

Check out Day 1 coverage (with more coming soon!) of an off road adventure on Southern California's Mojave Road. The Mojave Road is truly a fun and adventurous route. Its diverse terrain - including washes, river crossings, rocks, silt, lake beds, dirt roads, sand, whoops, and more - combined with fascinating historic sites, should put this trail on your yearly to-do list.

The plan was to meet up with Jon (silver Ranger) and his neighbor Terry to carpool out to Barstow at 6am. We stopped by a Mobil around 6:30am for fuel and Monster.

Weather was great, light breeze, about 50*, and no moon. Perfect for sleeping.
