 Added, just as a small side note this trip can lend itself to some pretty harsh conditions out in the high desert. Not saying you cannot go just making sure that you are willing to deal with high winds and temps ranging from the 20s 40s possible, mud, rain snow etc. All of the guys signed up have been on the last two trips and are great resources. I added a couple links for you from the last two trips for your perusement and pontification. That being said, you are added to the "list" and welcome aboard!

Well said, and thanks for the caution. I have heard that it blows like heck out there and like many others I'm prepared to sleep in my X. I'll be sure to read up on the prior trips and I'll be ready, no worries  8)

Good advice...one of the reasons we bought a mountaineering ground tent for our winter desert adventures. Wind sucks...er, blows.

Tip #1: Don't bring an easy up.
Tip #2: Don't bring an easy up.

Weather first year was great.  A little cold, but manageable. Last year was a different story.  Cold, wet, and windy for the first night on the road.  Cold the 2nd night.  Even though the weather did not cooperate last year, it was still one of the most enjoyable runs I've done to date.  The crew that we have makes up for any hitches along the way.

So what you're saying is, no easy up  :D (To be honest I had to look up what an easy up even was!)

I've camped with temps in the teens, in Texas, surprisingly, so the cold is okay. The wind would be the bigger issue. Sleeping in my X solves the tent part. I figure on getting goggles and wearing ear plugs so I can still function when the sand blows.

But first, have to get on the "go" list (off standby)  :-[

 Maybe we could do a "Meet -N- Greet" somewhere along the route featuring SCUBA DALE and The Mojave Road Boys?

Will you require the greeters to bring a single-malt to pay homage?

  Yes, yes, yea I forgot about the all important SINGLE MALT, you have to bring that after all it's a requirement just like a HAM. I'm still considering requiring name tags, order of march with vehicle numbers including HAM call signs which will be mandatory i.e. no "Hey you's" cause you know the FCC and all care about our simplex transmissions out there. By the way how many spare tires is everyone planning to bring? Bead setter? Who has one, we need one. Let's see, I'm sure I'm forgetting something. As of now I'm not going to require special gearing or lockers front and rear but that may change. I think I need to go back to the drawing board and re-think this entire plan and my initial post and past runs have been way too loosely formatted in every way possible. There has been way too many shenanigans going on and nothing has been done according to strict military discipline along the way. Things are about to change I decree, things are about to change..............

 I was wondering what the group consensus is on accommodations for this year's run? I was thinking about switching from Harrah's to the Aquarius if I can get a decent group rate.
