    Had 13 Jeeps, aprox 26 people.. Well besides ME trying to get everyone Lost as soon as we got off the freeway, lolol... It was fun... For those that left after Devils Throat, or at Gold Butte, the trail was much more interesting after that... Saw more indian signs, got into washes, we camped in a great little spot, No Wind, kept the windows and doors open all night. Found other places to explore.. I admit that the paved road and the graded road Sucked.... long and boring... had fun taking my little Black~N~Blue - Pup out... It went everywhere I went...lol I tried to water down the road as it leaked out when it dumped about 3 gallons of water inside of it..lol Again, the people were great and met some new people that I can't wait to see again... Thanks to ALL of you for making the weekend so much fun for me...

    Well my kids and I made it as far as "Devils Throat" but becasue of the delays and waiting and what appeared to be getting lost on the side trip we weren't able to complete the journey. Will have to back another time to see what we missed. It is possible I feel to make it a day trip (long day), and not have to spend the night. We did have a good time though. I think it should be a little better plans to enjoy it more, Unoffical or or Offical outing.
