Our troop of four white fullsize trucks met up in Ridgecrest, California, the day after Thanksgiving and then convoyed out to Ballarat, California. Ballarat is a blip on the map and the last place to find any supplies before heading into the western side of Death Valley National Park. We opted to skip DV and instead explore the mining areas west of the park for easier camping.
