    I've tried looking for a trails map of that area but none was found. I know there are entrances to Desert Wells on the North (by the 60) and East (by route 79) but I've never gone in through the West where you're talking about. According to Riderplanet there's a staging area on Skyline Drive which is just a few miles from where you are talking about.

    I'd like to come out there with you if I can. Weekends are kinda sketchy for me but I have off this Monday and no current plans.

    Cyberdos great idea but not sure I can swing it Monday or not yet. I was actually thinking of blowing off work Monday as I will be getting back late Sunday from a Rocky Point fishing expedition. So Monday could work! What kind of bike do you have? Are you hauling it or riding it? I am waiting for Cycle
    Gear's Black Friday Sale to pick up my remaining riding gear.

    I am sending in for a land use permit to minimize the trouble later.

    hey, that's kind of a personal question. I don't even know you and I never put out on a first date. Most times.

    I've got a DRZ400 with plenty of gas.

    Hahahahahahah:roflglad yours is big I am sure she is happy bout that when your doing a two up! Well mine is small HAhahahhahaah :D No really you need a tweezers to find the fuel after 90 miles. the tank is 2.4 gal getting 45mpg making me look desperate at 100 miles. Just added 4X4L bottles which can get me out of trouble ~ 45miles. Looked at Gold Camp not sure how they live over there they don't have a gas station that I can tell.

    There's a station at Gold camp. But if you're doing 90 miles in Desert Wells you just about covered every inch of that place. It's not really all that big.

    A big thanks goes out to Cyberdos for helping get back into dirt riding. He had to put up with falling fuel bottles and my general noobness. I had a great time!

    Any of you wankers ever ridden out to Swansea? It's a ghost town out near Alamo. I'm pondering a jaunt out there some time soon.

    Alamo lake. It's on the other end of the world from you. Go to Wenden and turn North.

    I did the last AARG ride out there. Smoking 100mph dirt super highway darn near the whole way. I'd be bored stiff on my 450, but it was a high-speed slice of heaven on the GSA. Good camp spot, too.
