Travel Safe

 

Travel Safe into the desert. 

You will be traveling deep into the Mojave, on the edge of the Great Basin, thinking that if you have survived the wilds of Vegas or Los Angeles, or ... you can handle anything. Or maybe you’ve already watched too many horror movies featuring the hot dry barren desert.  Somewhere in the middle is what you’ll actually find.

This is a land of extremes from summer time temps up to 127 in the shade and a possibility of below freezing in the winter and wind any time, most find fall and spring to be their favorite times to visit. Temps from day to night can vary from 20 - 40 degrees F.  What that means if it’s too hot in the day for you it will cool to very lovely at night.  If it’s freezing at night by 9 or 10 am it should be warm enough to take off your coat.  People love to travel to this region of the mojave year round.  And a hot springs in the summer?  But think if it’s 115 outside and the hot bath is 104 it will still feel wonderful.

Travel safe: carry at least one gallon of water per person per day, even in the winter.  If your car breaks down stay with it, someone will eventually come along.  And if you’re out to back road it, let someone know where you’re headed and when you expect to return, so if you don’t, we’ll know where to start looking.
