All right, we all know the Vikings were great explorers and raiders, and apparently they made it all the way to Desert, looking to warm their bones and grab a few wenches. So how about a Mojave trial run in January. Bring you thickest animal hide coat, battle axes and plenty of mead. This run is limited to 16 rigs, after that, it turns into a unruly mass of Bezerkers.

We will be meeting 8:30am at the gas station a AVI and hitting the trail at 9:00am. There will be camping both nights for thos who are interested. Please make sure to bring along at least 5 extra gallons of gas and 1 bundle of fire wood(at min), it will get chilly.

Saturday Night, we will have a BBQ potluck, Viking style, so think creative, what would a Viking eat.(lotsa meat I guess).

Confirmed so far:
Spertierra Camping Friday
Fj-Piper Camping Friday
The Mainsters Camping Friday
fjessence +2
mtnkraut
FJCDZNUTZ
kingazteca
Bobonel
FunJunkie +1 Camping Friday
Kokopeli+2
GSFJ +1
EagleScout
phulcrum
Modanger
Mojodog


Don't despair if you are on the standby list, as most know, a few people always have to drop out, but if the final list is 17 or 18 rigs, I will try to squeeze the rest in.

Standby:



Meeting Time: 8:30am Saturday Morning
Trail Start Time: 9:00am
Where: Meet at the gas station of the AVI Casino, 15 miles north of Needles.
What to Bring: 5-10 gallons of extra fuel, food & drinks, at least 1 gallon of water per person per day, warm clothing, recovery gear.
Requirements: CB and any safety gear and mods you feel cormfortable with. 2WD OK

The campsite coords:
35.073305,-114.719292

Could all of you, sometime during the next month, post up a body count, and what food your are bringin, to help with the Potluck, and the permit I just downloaded.

I'm in!!!! I hope we can get Uphill to come along with this trip. He really knows the trail, and more importantly, the history behind the trail and the many places within it.

Absolutely In!

Edits:

2008/11/07: I will be testing lots of electronics on this run and will need to strategically place myself in the middle of all of the vehicles. Some things that I'l be testing that involves my placement in the pack is a cell phone booster, mobile WiFi for those who want it and I will be broadcasting something via FM Stereo (don't know what yet) for the other vehicles to tune into to if they want.

Might just be a certain song made famous on the last trip here's some lyrics: "I had picked up this hitchhiker that was sweatin' gallons through a pair of Daisy Duke cut-offs and one of those Fruit Of The Loom tank-tops. Well, that night I lost myself to ruby red lips, milky white skin, and baby blue eyes. Name was Russell." lol :D

We can try, but he usually likes groups of five vehicles. You can send him a PM invite, I don't really think we will get more than 8 righs to be honest, he might go for it.

I kinda agree with Uphill....more than 8 rigs or so, and you are asking for crashes or someone to get left behind, or some inexperienced, no seat-time guy like me will try to keep up and get in over my head and REALLY SCREW THE POOCH....:D

As long as everyone takes it easy, leaves enough space between rigs (dusty conditions), and is mindful of each other's abilities (and the abilities of the rigs) we should be OK.

Wow, I totally forgot about that, we saw you a couple miles down the trail, and went out and reeled you in. That was Mike and myseld until then.
