Saline Valley Rd is very rough due to insane washboard. After leaving the dirt, airing back up, and cruising highway 190 across Death Valley, I noticed excessive swaying. Noticed this when we stopped at Stove Pipe Wells. If you know anything about Death Valley, you know there isn't a hardware store handy lol We had to drive to Pahrump NV to find a store with nuts and bolts. To those that say they don't drive with a front sway bar, I call bullshit! That's straight up sketchy
Finally made Overland Expo West and they even parked us next to another JLU! It was a fun and interesting event and I'll be back again!
But the show must go on! Vermillion Cliffs just before getting to the Navajo Bridge.
North Rim of the Grand Canyon was chilly to say the least. 28° snowy and no power greeted us. We decided not to camp in the Kaibab National Forest and press on to Hurricane Utah and grab a hotel. Weather didn't cooperate and Zion was shocked in with clouds and rain the next day. I didn't have a flag with me, so we skipped in Sand Hollow also. Instead we powered on to Hoover Dam, and then headed towards the Mojave Desert.
Have you ever heard of the last place on earth? It's also the last word on healing
Pretty neat place if you know the history
Camp in the Mojave Desert after visiting Zzyzx and then finding Travelers Monument. Totally worth the trip!
We packed up in the morning and then started the long drive back to Oregon. Got caught in a wicked sand storm on the Barstow Bakersfield Highway and destroyed my windshield, headlights, fog lights, and grill
I5 through most of California lacks good camping spots so we got a hotel in Sacramento, then powered on to Oregon the next day.
A little over 3k miles later we pulled in the driveway...with a knocking rear end
