JV Campsite Location ... Look for my older dark-green Toy Tundra with a light-grey Wells-Cargo enclosed trailer chasing it, near the base of these hills.

Here are a GPX file & a KMZ file, and the KMZ file shown in GoogleMaps with the campsite waypoint. Right-click on the file links and select "save as ...". Ride waypoints & suggested tracks will be available in camp.

I'll be driving down via 58->395south, thru Victorville, Apple Valley, etc. on the 26th. Who sells good firewood down there? I usually get 1/4 cord of almond at the Cal.City Ace Hardware when camping in that area.

Mike, Take 58 to 15, turn off on 247 in Barstow. 247 to Boon Rd. This cuts out a bunch of junk in Apple Valley.

It does look quicker that way, but I didn't find any places with 1/4 cord of firewood coming in that way. There are a couple of firewood places in Apple Valley.

Thanks for the info. I googled around, and it found "L.V.Firewood of Victorville" at 9988 Dusty Ln, Lucerne Valley. I'll call this place & the ones in AV tomorrow to see who has what.


My Christmas stuff is done. Ms.Beta is ready for action. Getting the trailer ready tomorrow.
I wish Santa would hurry up, so I can go PLAY!!!

Firewood in LV.

If you come in the 247 from Barstow, turn right at the 247/18 stop sign (you would turn left if going to Johnson Valley). There usually are some folk selling firewood out of their pickups within the next half mile. If not, Stay Warm Firewood is another half mile. They are fairly large and you cannot miss.

I'm planning to ride thru the 1st or 2nd. Or maybe even the 3rd if I got someone to ride with. Most of our No.Cal friends have bailed. "Its too far!"

Other than Scott & I, only one other No.Cal rider is coming. We're all planning to arrive on the 26th & ride 27th-... I'm glad to hear we are getting more local adv folks interested. Should be FUN!

Starting that weekend, Means should have lots of rigs out practicing for the King of the Hammers race in February. If you guys have not seen these vehicles, you will enjoy visiting the various camp site and looking.
