Action Plan:My most vivid, earliest, memories of my going in the desert are...heat, heat, more heat (and some dust). Unless one is going into an artic desert (yes, there are some), that's what everyone expects from a desert: to be hot. Coupling this with my distaste for early morning wake-ups,here come The Scorch Trials - summertime afternoon desert drives, as hot as they can be. The reward will be the a beautiful sunset, and aslowly cooling temperature, before heading out to a nice dinner with your loved ones.
Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with 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: 7:30 PM (with 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.
