Mojave Road 2011 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

What an awesome trip report! Im so bummed I missed this omg..

 

We missed you too James. That was a difficult decision on your part, but we appreciate that you meant the best for the group instead of thinking only of yourself. There will be other trips, hopefully closer to where you are! Everybody thought the Mojave decals you made were awesome! That was so cool of you! We're happy to have you as a member at OffroadPassport, you contribute a lot. Thank you. d :rolleyes:

Kristopher, sorry for not checking in on HAM as scheduled. We were in the middle of setting up camp in a snow storm, and I let the time slip away whilst trying to find my tent pegs in the snow....

 

hey no problem, i could hear the repeater but wasn't sure if i was getting out anyway, tried to hit you on simplex too and then left the radio on a couple minutes but just figured that we weren't connecting and gave up.

 

we had some major confusion for a few minutes when someone named Ian from your group caught us on simplex sunday morning. i hadn't learned all the call signs in our group yet, so i asked "is this someone from the offroad passport group" and he said yes but seemed a little panicked that there were people left at camp and he also wasn't sure his smaller group was going the right direction. after a little back and forth confusion, he said something about a white jeep cherokee at camp and i knew we didn't have one of those so i asked if he was going on the Mojave Road from East to West or West to East, and then we got it cleared up!

 

anyway, glad we didn't hit the big snow at our camp like you did, but looks like you had fun!

Whoops! I made a few corrections to the report. First of all I accounted for MatthewP's departure, and I corrected azscout Rob's vehicle to JK. Oh, and corrected the number of vehicles to finish. 9 rigs made it to the end, 7 in our group. Hey what can I say, it was complicated math! Sorry guys! d :rolleyes:

aimee and I spent sunday night after the trail in Laughlin, had breakfast in Bullhead City, and then took the long way home. We took the count/forest road 5 from Seligman (on the 40) to Prescott and then the normal way back to Phoenix.

 

I thought we'd see a little snow, but it turned out to mostly be a giant mud-fest. There were times when the road was just 6" deep mud and we were afraid to slow down or get out of the center of the road or we'd probably be stuck!

 

 

we saw a ranch with ostrich and bison:

we went through a bout a mile of retarded cows that wouldn't get out of the middle of the road until i was within inches of them... but i was afraid to slow down too much as i might get stuck... damn cows! aimee kept screaming at the babies "go with your mommy stupid... run!!!" as they were the last to leave the road usually.

we stopped for lunch once the road got to a more packed consistency and i wasn't afraid to get stuck, mud was everywhere:

mud was even stuck to the antennas!

i count at least 5 colors of mud:

we saw a neat little bridge and a small waterfall where there had apparently been a dam at one point:

we ran into what looked like a young kid that had gotten his dad's truck stuck in the ditch, i tried to help him back it out to a less soft spot, but it was stuck good. before i could move the jeep to pull him, another guy came by and saw us and hooked to him and had him out pretty quick.

 

other than some tense moments getting up and down hills in the really deep mud, the trip was nice and scenic. fortunately we didn't hit any traffic coming into Phoenix on the 17 either.

 

brady was happy to see us and said that next time we should take him so that mom doesn't miss him.

 

 

 

thanks again everyone for making this a great trip. one of our goals from the very beginning of Offrroad Passport was to create a group that any offroad capable rig could be a part of - so i really enjoyed the diversity of vehicles on this run and hope to see you all again.
