Your 125 miles from Johnson Valley. You might need 4wd there

Obviously an over lander so JV won't be his cup of tea.

Try El Camino Del Diablo which runs east/west between Yuma and Ajo Arizona.

You can also run on the backside of Calico between Barstow and Vegas.

Big Bear... if that's not 4WD enough, then drive down the north side of the mountain to Johnson Valley.

I make trips similar to what your talking about. Not many marked trails left that are that long so what I do is break out the map and pick a destination with as few roads to it as possible. I guess you could call my trips prospecting more then anything but when I'm off the beaten path I almost always need 4wd.

My wife & I just did 500miler with 156 miles off road with only 3mi of pavement in that 156. Up to Bishop and stayed the night. Next morning up Silver Canyon to the top of the Whites and down the other side on Crooked Creek Rd. Then to the Eureka Dunes for the Night. Up the next day the back way to Saline Valley Hot Springs for a bath before heading home out the South Pass. Could have made another night of it. Really enjoy those kind of trips.
