So the max rig number has been reached. If someone happens to just be in the area and going in the same direction, at the same time.... would that be a problem? Asking for a friend...
tell your friend ;) they are more than welcome to join us. That goes for anyone who is reading this. I'm sure not all that RSVP'd will make it.

Thanks, for the reply. Ill check my tongue height. In regards to the bumpy ride. Ill air down appropriatley for the rocks and washes.
Out of Curiosity, how did you come up with your handle?
From a song called “and the band played Waltzing Matilda” by The Pogues. It captures a journey of a Australian Rover who went to war, WW1. To Waltz ones Matilda is a kin to our military term to Hump with your pack.

As an Aussie, i am very familiar with the song. Not many Americans are.

Hey there, I too have a TB, Getaway; I’ve been on this road many times with my JL and Turtleback. There really aren’t any issues the Turtleback can’t handle, just several miles of washboard and a mild hilly section going through the washes entering the Joshua Tree forest area.

I usually enter off the opposite end (from the north) and camp on the BLM land there.

We should connect sometime.
