Overland Expedition journey from Mexico to Pismo
Starting near the Mexican/Arizona border south of Ajo, we link various overland routes and back country trails to the Pacific Ocean. The route was approx 1,000 miles one-way and consisted of 95-98% dirt.
Vehicles were two 80 series, one petrol, one diesel (A Sportsmobile joined us as well). We both pulled trailers. One older South African trailer with an RTT and a So-Cal Teardrop Krawler 459. We also were equipped with two dogs and two truly adventurous females.
This southwest journey combined many overland routes/trails linked together such as:
East to West
* El Camino Del Diablo
* Picacho Rd./Indian Pass
* Bradshaw Overland Route
* Joshua Tree
* Old Dale Rd.
* Mojave Road
* Calico/Yermo Area
* High Desert Barstow
* Black Mtn Wilderness
* Carrizo Plains
* Pozo Rd.
* Hi-Mountain Rd.
* Oceano Dunes
Ended on the sand at the Pacific Ocean.
The trip was made back in December 2011 and ended just after New Years. It took us 10 days. We just now finished the final installment of our 3 Part Series of trip reports.
