Nope...I tried to warn you to take the rail line...here's the proof...at least no one got stuck like 2017, whose fault was that???

Getting stuck was 100% Fathead and well um "Others" but you were the one barking about how you hated the railroad access. As I remember in the drivers meeting you were doing some jerrymandering of your own.... But hey its as always easy to blame the maple syrup eaters..    :)

 I wanted to ask a consensus from everyone going if they liked the Golden Nugget. If the rest of you guys want me to I'll try and get another discounted group rate there as I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue. I thought the rooms were nice and weren't expensive at all. It was super nice having the Claim Jumper and the other restaurants below as by the end of this trip I'm not too keen on driving too far. It had a really good ventilation system in that casino to keep the smoke at bay too. 

  Other changes on the drawing board are getting up early and going to NY Mtns and stay put there for two nights instead of the daily hop. This will be good if there is bad weather and people can either rest, go wheeling, hiking or whatever they want to do. No, Nada, Nichts, Nunya Soda Lake unless it's bone dry..... Even then probably NO SODA LAKEThat place is the spawn of the devil.............

  There might be plans to do another return trip through the open desert like Tony and I did two years ago and had a blast.  WMR for the win!

^^This right here. lol  I think we just had bad timing on that weekend.  Other than that, I liked the GN.   

I like the idea of going straight to the mountains and setting up camp.  I kind of feel like we pulled a jerk move on this last trip when we went off wheeling after everyone had setup camp. This time, I want to make it available for everyone and give them plenty of notice that we might head out.

I dont think it was a jerk move at all buddy so no worries there. I had plenty of time to go if I wanted to. I guess the reason the check in took so long is a couple people quit and they hadnt hired more receptionists when I asked. All in all a nice hotel. It was really fun meeting up for a few drinks before then the mass migration for a really nice dinner.

 So I've had some more time to think about my plans and I would like to do the return trip but the course will be altered to the one Sage Bromax and I took last time. It was a lot of fun and we did a lot of exploring out in open desert finally camping in a protected wash. I'm starting a list on the sign up for people who want to do the return or if you want to meet us in Laughlin and go along. The return trip entails hooking south after the climb past Ft. Paiute and going until we find a suitable camp spot. We might stay two days in the same spot or jump toc for a different one depending on what people want to do. I will say it was nice and relaxing staying for two days in that wash. We will probably exit the off road somewhere around Goffs and continue to 29 Palms for a re-fuel and the jump home past 2N02. No vehicle limit for this portion. Bring lots of firewood because it gets cold and well we always like those big fires. Other than that it's up to you.

I haven't heard a whole lot from The Peanut Gallery or the Heckler Advisory Board so what do you guys think about heading out early to NY Mtns on day #1?

Well there you have it The Heckler Advisory Board has spoken. I'll wait another couple days to see if The Peanut Gallery chimes in but I think that's the way were gonna go with this run. I'm really looking forward to this trip with you guys again!
