I'm plotting the route there now. This is a rough draft.

Whens the earliest us San Diego folks can leave on Wednesday? The route I have is about 560 miles. I can quickly adjust as needed if this is too long. My alternate is to take the 15 all the way to Baker which should save some time. There are no dirt roads, other than the last leg into Gold Point, on the outbound route. I figure we would get enough dirt time there. Again I can add a few short stretches if need be.

Headstaller I think you should be able to link up with us at the junction of 10 and 62. where we turn north. I can't guarantee an exact time but give me till tomorrow and I can give you an aprox. time. I need to find out when the SD folks can leave out.

Edit- I haven't figured in the fuel stops yet. I'm still going off the 170 mile fuel stops unless headstalker tells me different.

Edit- Corrected for fuel stops Basecamp says 584 miles. We might be able to figure in one less fuel stop on the way depends on condition but the 4 fuel stops I have calculated in are playing it safe 170 or under. One fuel stop is less than 100 miles from the last but gas stations seem to be lacking out in the desert.
