    Well that is what it says and I hopefully plan to finish it. If you are next to a computer next week you are welcome to come on in and enjoy the ride with me.

This trip has been in the works for some time and should go smooth, however things can happen in the desert heat and you will have a front row seat for the trip from your computer or phone. This route will go across towering sand dunes and ranges of wind swept valleys that continue as far as the eye can see. No chase truck, just a GPS beacon, an extra gallon of gas and supplies. It is all takes place in our backyard here in Southern California Thursday the 12th bright and early. See you.

    Beginning from Kingman, AZ and finishing at Rialto, CA

    Looks like he made it based on his track from the URL. Would have been cool to hear the story though.
