I would love too go but I am down for some repairs. Trapping 4 gals in the tank so time to cut a hole and pull the pump. Speedo gear is stripped in the T-Case got to crack the case half flush all the little plastic turds and put in the new parts. Brakes pulling hard left front right must not be working right. So I have 5 days off to get everything done. If I get lucky and get done early I will jump in anywhere.

Looks good Ray. I do like the little groups within the groups. I was thinking about starting a group of my own. "Non lifted JKU Rubi's with spacers and two toddler car seats"

LOL. You might end up being one of one in that group.

I'm In

Lovell to Wheeler or anything else sounds good to me as long as it's after 8 after the Monaco Grand Prix (race on Sunday, qualifying Saturday).
Heck, when I'm not so time challenged I think we could pull off Rocky Gap to Wheeler Pass some day.

Somebody name a meetup time and place...

Saturday would be better for me since the Indianapolis 500 is Sunday.

Monday'd be OK too, if Ray's not working his crews Memorial Day.

Does this involve rocky gap road? Or is it a trail ride? I don't know if I've seen info on those canyons.

Wasn't planning on Rocky Gap, just wanting to explore from the Lovell Canyon side over to Trout Canyon down into Pahrump. Still open to another route if anyone else has any other thoughts.

Rocky Gap will Work. Meet at Dunkin Donuts on Charleston just west of the 215 at 9:00am, leave by 9:30. Might still try Lovell Canyon after Rocky Gap. Just have to see what kind of time we have.

I'm not interested in rocky gap, that's why I said I'd be good not doing it.

I would join you guys, but I'm doing a geo-caching run with the Desert Wranglers tomorrow morning. I'll have to catch you on the next one. Have fun!

NO Rocky Gap OK With Me

Shouldn't have mentioned a someday trip on a thread for this weekend.

Lovell Canyon starts paved east of Mtn Springs and there's a back way towards Pahrump.
Wheeler is the "short" way from Pahrump to the prison near 95.
They should be straightforward on MapQuest.

I'll be at Dunkin' @ 9 and follow wherever.

I might suggest today's intended route as a desert wranglers trip for June or July. One of us could lead it, with another prerun to make it run smoother.

I had fun today and since it was mostly at higher elevation it could be run even in the middle of summer. Especially since we would air down and up at the higher elevations.
