It'll be good though. I've not been wheeling all summer (to hot, I'm weak, haha!), accept for a few dirt roads in the Willys. Can't wait!

So how far is the beginning of the trail from the end of the trail (by paved road)?

If I bring my kids, I might tow the Jeep behind the Suburban so they can sleep while I drive. So I'm wondering where I'd leave the Suburban and how far away we'd end up.

Look - I'm on the list twice. Does that mean I get two tries at each obstacle?

It depends where we plan on coming out at the end of the trail. Or if we do the trail backwards and come out where we went in if that makes any sense.

Turn off is for nightmare gulch but I guess with all thirty jeeps going one of us should know lol. And just to be clear we're meeting up at the trailhead off of garlock road correct?

Maybe I'll drop the Suburban in Mojave, so I don't have to backtrack.

Where do you guys gas up before hitting the trailhead?

You don't say...

I usually like to start a trail run with a full tank, so I try to find a nearby station just before the trailhead. I should have asked if Mojave is the last stop for gas on the the way there. Looking at the map, it looks like it is...

You can get gas in Mojave. You could drop the burb off closer to where we'll be wheeling. There's a store right on 14 near Jawbone. Can't remember if the store is before, or after your turn for the Garlock cuttoff? Should be safe there though. Then you could meet us at the trail head?

I'll probably top off at Karamer junction, worked last time. If the gas station is open at Red Mountain I may top it off there again just to be safe. I'm not packing a fuel can anymore. I cut the brackets off for it.
