What to bring:



Lots of Water, food for 3 days, firewood, tent and camping gear, sunscreen, hat, camera, etc. Although the trip is 100 + miles on dirt, we've never experienced anyone running out of gas, so you shouldn't need to haul any, but it is an option.

 

The weather is generally warm during the days, but it can get chilly at night and early mornings.

This trip is suitable for stock 4x4 vehicles.

I really want to go on this. What time will you be departing the Phoenix area on Friday? Could I get by with just taking Monday off work? I need more vacation time. Argh!

We'll probably be leaving early since we're entering at Fortuna, but I bet you could find us if you left later. Heck, I bet we'll even have cell coverage at Fortuna Mine it's so close to town. You could volunteer to lead a late convoy if you want. . .

I'm in the same boat with Phil. I have a permit but no video stamp.

 

Is it true that the only place to get the stamp is Ajo?
