NRL and Jeffrey - thanks yet again for the great recommendation. We had a really good time, saw some great scenery and the cold beer was that much tastier in the empty desert. We also got to give the SMB a pretty good 4x4 workout during the 30+ miles of offroad travel.

Here is a link to all of the photos - Photo Gallery.

Here are a couple shots as well.

I'm almost surprised we didn't see each other! We camped Saturday night a couple miles down Tule Wash on the West side (close to the State Park boundary). We entered via Truckhaven Wash and continued out of the desert down to 78 on Sunday via Cut Across.

It was a bit warm, but nothing unbearable. However, these giant black wasp like insects flying around were a bit disturbing.

Thanks for posting your pictures.

I might have seen your campfire way off in the distance nearer to Anza; looking for a blinking cell tower..

On Sunday Morning, we did head into the Park on the bikes and made a loop from Buttes Point, San Felipe Wash to Bank Wash, to East Wash, to Cutoff and did the Truckhaven route back to Tule.

Those bugs are harmless.. have wind will keep them away.
We usually go with Red LEDs at night to keep the bugs away. Flip the white LED's only when you must.. I did see the largest spider at night this time around when filling up the Honda 2000. I made a detour, she made a detour..

The Solar panel did really well during the day..

We were closer to the Pole Line Road. We usually take a shortcut to Tule Wash from the Land Fill Road off of highway 86 southbound.

There is a 76 where we gas up before we head in and down south of that there is a new Grocery market near but not quite Salton City where we picked up a few steaks and beers.

It was a short two days but the Camping and Riding was sweet!
