:DThe Short Bus rides again:D November 16th-17th we're going to Nightmare Gulch in Red Rock State Park. Tentatively planning to camp at Dove Springs Friday through Sunday. We'll tack on Last Chance Canyon and who knows what else. Weather permitting (not too cold) we'll do a night ride through the gulch Saturday night as well. I'll put up more details as we get closer. No adventure pass is required. Nightmare Gulch was moderately difficult last time I was in there but there has been some weather since. This definitely a scenery ride but it's rough enough to keep it interesting that way too. Figure on pulling out of camp at 9:00 Saturday and being gone for 4-7 hours depending on what we run into. We'll potluck Saturday night as usual:) If we night ride we'll take off after the potluck. Keep you're eyes on this first post for details to be updated.:D

Directions in:
Go 25.2 miles northwest on highway 14 from the 14/58 interchange near Mojave. You will go past Jawbone and Red Rock State Park. There is a low BLM sign on the right directing you to Dove Springs, left turn onto SC103.

From the cattle guard go 2 miles ( at 1.2 miles there is a major intersection, go straight) and be looking left, thats where we'll be. It's just after a break in the hill. Plenty of room for all.

There are no signs that say no fires so I'm thinking we're good to go on that.

[/IMG]Definitely awesome scenery and a few challenges along the way. Unless you're RZRCSI and you make it look easy;) (seriously, Jim was on that day and embarrassed a few of us badly)






And there's a wedge in in LAst Chance if you're one of "those guys":eek:

Well crap. Already made reservations for three days at Disney on those dates. I was hoping you would do it at the end of Oct. Bummer.

Would like to make this ride but we maybe going the weekend before so we'll see.
Don't know if you're planning on going to Nightmare gulch the weekend before. If you are, don't forget it's closed the first two weeks of the month. Hope to see you up there!

Chris,If the moon lines up with Uranus than I might be able to make it. I'm going to try and make this . If I do, this will be the first time
i'll be out since I lost my motorhome and cars. P.S. your never to old to play and RIDE!!!!
It's a strange thing to make a guy do to get you out for a ride:confused: But you do bring the beer and are a riot to beat up on so tonight I'll go out after sunset and see if I can get my anus to line up with the moon. I don't know why you need me to do this, but for you, I will somehow make it happen man. Pictures to follow. See you out there:D
