    I made a few maps last year and flagged a few primative and not primative camping areas along Mojave Road / Afton Canyon last year.

    Went back and forth off I-15 to Afton, Rasor Road, Basin Road and Xyzyx Road, and doubled back and forth along a few trails there along with Mojave Road. I mapped out a few spots on GPS. There's an outdoor UP rail maintenance yard out that way and passed by a spot where a coal train derailed with a ton of scrap piled up from the cleanup.

    Only note, I'd say is Xyzyx Road is officially closed off to Mojave Road access. It's BLM owned, but it's under management of CSU and anything off road related is closed off for rehabilitation. Out of curiosity, I decided to check it out since I had time to kill, I drove up into the compound past the parking area, there's a road called Paul Tiberius which dog legs around a 90 degree angle before the center, and that leads behind the complex to the desert, but it's gated. The no trespass signs are facing the opposite way. Unless its an emergency, I'd just use Basin/Rasor road exits or something closer to baker. That being said CSU had a locked gate blocking access at the end of the Xzyzx properity but it seems like the hinges were unbolted so you could in theory lift the gate or unscrew the bolt holding the lock in place and just open the gate.. in theory.

    Also saw a few ranch/compounds out in the middle of nowhere out that way. Pretty cool.

    I'm .doing my first Mojave trip end of this month with a closed group. Kinda scared as the trips I've done are day trips. But never overnight trips. Don't know what to expect.

    Hey guys, I haven't been on for a while. I see some familiar names still. (3Hummers, LagunaH1, Zach, and Kurt.)

    I still have my Hummers and will be watching for the next group adventure.

    Thank you & take care.

    Depending on timing, I am definitely interested. Normally work is crazy busy, but right now in between projects. I am a Construction Manager for SoCalGas and have done a lot of work on our Desert pipelines. One of them runs along Mojave Rd.

    Learned to love the SoCal Desert while working over the years and watching the seasons pass! I love finding/checking out abandoned mining camps and mines

    Took a couple of different vehicles out hiking/ camping in the SOCAL or Mexican desert circa 1990s. Always a good adventure back then. I think that I would still enjoy it from November to April. Outside of that time frame, a bit too hot for an over-nighter. I haven't been on a trip for a while having moved to North Central CA. But, the 2008 H3A is still in good shape. Really, it is outfitted more for overland than as a rock crawler. So, might be a good fit.
