Lets plan the early 2008 Mojave Preserve run here. This is not a sanctioned event. Just some freinds meeting on the Mojave Road.

Hey everyone,

Can we do the Mohave Preserve for Winter Run? We can do some runs up to old mines, the lava tube, old Mohave Rd, see Kelso Dune, etc.

If it snows or rains, there wont be any dust! That time of year always brings in some awesome looking clouds and beautiful blue skys!

Great pics! I did Mohave this spring and it was a great time! I would like to see it in the winter, I'm sure it will be a bit more challenging and even more scenic.

I'd love to do the Mojave road again - it's an awesome trail with all different types of trail-scape - always beautiful, always different depending on the time of year and weather conditions...

I must admit that a traveling fest event sounds quite enticing. I love the idea of a Mojave Road fest event.

If you pick a weekend I don't have anything else scheduled, I would be happy to guide and narrate the trail. Just when would you consider it winter - Dec, Jan & Feb?
See you on the Trail!

You bet your hiney you would be leading a run and providing commentary! :D

Id also like to show everyone a couple of cool spots, such as Bonanza King Mine, Vulcan Mine, Aiken Mine and lava tube, etc.
