"We" (meaning those who go with me!) are leaving Thursday the 11th BEFORE Dawn's Crack, like 5:30am!!! We catch the sunrise right about the time we get to the desert flats. :cool:

As per MY usual, please note AND realize the "rules of engagement" when going along with me to Lake Havafew which are as follows:

1. Have your bus in good tune and running order!
2. We leave at the given time to leave!
3. Show up prior to that time!
4. Be ready to depart at that time, meaning already fueled up, coffeed and/or fed!

Issues: We do realize that shtuff happens. However, having your bus in good running order, tuned, not hemorraging oil, and like that, helps tremendously in preventing major catastrophies! I've been there and trust me, it is no fun being the one who holds a caravan up, specially on long assed trips like this one! Also, it helps having a 2-way CB radio to keep in communication with the group in case something happens, as well as having fun while we're at it! Now, in case something does happen, we will assess the "situation" and come up with the quickest solution in order to keep the caravan going. If we can fix the problem realitively quick, we'll do just that. If on the other hand it is a "catastrophic" event, then a secure place must be found for the broken bus and a tow truck called for the rescue. No fair having all involved lose out on the weekend due to one broken bus! :sad:

With that said, the route from San Diego is as follows:

The 8 freeway east to El Centro where we stop for gas. Grab a donut if you want but this is a quick stop!!! {2 hours}
Then we'll take the 111 north to the 78 east
Go through Glamis
The Whoop-dee-doos
The Ziggy-zaggy
Then the 10 east to the Flying J truck stop at Ehrenberg. Here we stop for gas, strech out and have some "brunch"! {2+ hours}
From right there we'll take Aridzona's Hwy 1 which is the Ehrenburg/Poston Hwy north
Go trough Poston and on to Parker where we'll take the 95 all the way to Lake Havafew City. {2+ hours}

Once there, with some day light still, we set up camp and start enjoying the weekend! :cool:

Ready for it!
As in past years - I'll meet you there as I'll be heading out from Murrieta to I-10, Hwy 62 up the 95 in Parker.
Planning to head out super early on Thursday morning.

Was going to make this trip but with recent repair costs of the wife's car and a trip to South Carolina on the Monday after I would get back, this is not possible once again for me. ](*,)

No I haven't because it always fell on the same weekend I had to report to my Father Daughter dance rehearsal that was mandatory. My daughters are not doing dance so I thought I would go this year since I have been wanting to go for a long time. Now I have spent way too much money on my wife's car to get it fixed so no funds to go even if I wasn't going to South Carolina.
