Join me for a Black Friday fun run in the low desert to see a couple mines with plenty of equipment and other junk still there!

 

Itinerary:

 

  • Meet at 9:30 AM at the McDonald's in Florence (across from the Giant gas station): Map here...
  • We should be airing up by mid afternoon, it all depends on how long we sight see at the mines.

 

Trail conditions/rating:

 

  • Mostly easy trails but with a few moderate spots where you'll need 4x4 low range and good clearance (off-camber ruts, short steep hills, soft sandy washes).
  • A stock Wrangler or Tacoma with A/T tires would probably be ok but most other vehicles should have A/T or M/T tires and at least a small lift and no low-hanging running boards or other such BS. 
  • At least one suitable tow-point is required.
  • Skid-plates on anything important are always recommended. 
  • A CB or ham radio would be nice.
  • Sway bar disconnects and airing down is highly recommended!

 

Other important info:

 

  • Bring a lunch and plenty of water!
  • Don't forget your chair and a camera.
  • Limited 8 rigs max due to limited parking space at mines, after that we'll add you to the standby list.
