how long would this take to enjoy and complete JV to Dusy Ershim to the rubicon? Google maps says 13 total hours of travel time but Im mainly curious how many days youd need

Probably around 8 days. How were you guys feeling about heading to the sand dunes for a day also? It's literally on the ocean, you camp on the beach, drive on the beach. It's a pretty cool experience. But if no one's interested it's all good.

Driving a jeep on the beach is a unique experience! Don't think it doesn't have it's challenges!

where are they located?

If that route mentioned would take roughly 8 days I probably wouldnt have much time to do anything else. I might not even be able to do 8 days but if Im going to make it out there I'd really like to see JV, the Dusy and the rubicon.

Honestly committing to the entire Dusy is a little ambitious. It would be two 12 hour+ wheeling days in itself with a large group with everything going perfectly and hard to even know if it'll be open (it's still closed right now). The itinerary I have in my head would be to meet in Tahoe, run the Rubicon in two days, head to Fresno the evening we finish the Rubicon, then the next morning head up the mountain and run swamp which is the same area as Dusy, just a 13 mile trail instead of 31miles. Then we could camp, run a half day trail up there ( I have several I could get us going on), then head out to the coast and be there by nightfall. Set up camp and wake up on the ocean, wheel the dunes, get some good food in Pismo and then head south down the coastline towards JV. It's about 300 miles from Pismo to JV so I'm not sure we'd make it all the way that day. Once we make it to Yucca valley, probably mid day if the weather somehow is on our side we could go to the hammers and play around. This is where Art will take over though...... night run, cougar buttes, big bear. I'd like to spend the night in Yucca and for sure get up super early and run some kind of Hammers trail before the heat the following day. So that is......... 7 days. Lot's of driving, lot's of wheeling.
