Action Plan:There comes a time when most off-roaders start feeling the heat, and begin to withdraw to the cool and safety of their A/C'd homes. That is the time when I prefer driving in the desert. Not only there are fewer tracks, but it's also the season that really makes you feel like you are in the desert, the type we had always imagined, and seen in movies: hot, dusty, extreme, worth the challenge of crossing and taming.
After all, as President Truman said,"If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen". So, if you accept the challenge, and choose to "step into the kitchen", get ready for a hot and fast drive (speed tends to keeps your cars cooler, and allows them to "float" better on burning, liquefying, sand), where all skills will be tested, in particular technical driving as well as faster criss-crossing.
Type of Car: Any proper 4x4with front andback tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.
What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks (for yourself), smiles, face mask, rubber gloves, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
Approximate finish time: 10:00 AM (including the possibility of a 30 minute extension to reach the exit)
P.S. Only join if you have a compressor to inflate your tires after the drive.
