Itinerary -- Feb 17 - 22

The detailed itinerary and GPX file will be posted in the forums as the date nears.  Our days will consist of exploring various discovery points along the way, some shorter hikes (potentially up to 2-3 miles), and lots of driving.  The vast majority of this trip will consist of driving off road, but there will be opportunities to refuel along the way.  


Your typical camping/overlanding gear, but be sure to bring extra propane/butane for cooking given the length of this trip.  Weather can be quite variable in desert in the winter months.  We recommend checking the forecast and packing appropriately.
