Looking to set up a travel group from the Sacramento and SF Bay areas to travel to OE West 2021 in September.
Want to go from the Sacramento area to Flagstaff, AZ with one over night stop.

Will anyone be heading that way this year?

Check in starts on Thursday. By the time we reach Ft Tuthill from Mojave, we should be able to check in. I too am camping there the whole weekend.
I am breaking Camp on Monday morning and starting a Southern Arizona road trip. First stop is Tuzigoot NM.

Bought my ticket, planning on leaving Sacramento Wednesday morning. Haven’t decided if I’m going to make the whole 11 hour drive or stop somewhere on the way.

Hello all. Thanks for checking in on the thread. Rally point coming up this weekend.

Planning on departing Wednesday morning, an overnight camp in Mojave, then arrive at OE West on Thursday.

Just to provide options.

I went in 2014 on my motorcycle(can't do the long daily mileages) from Santa Cruz and went over 108 and camped just East of Mono Lake off Hwy 167, Then thru Tonopah to just South of Caliente and camped at Kershaw-Ryan State Park. Next day I went thru Enterprise, St George, stopping at Walmart in Page for the night, and down to Mormon Lake.
It was nice to not be on the heavily used highways and out in the country, K-R SP was the nicest SP I've ever been in. I got to see that corner of Utah with so much history behind it.
After the Expo I went South and camped by Sedona and while I was at Tuzigoot(pronounced Tuzihoot) A fire sprung up and I was evacuated from my camp, meaning I couldn't get back....

If you ever get the chance Hwy 191 is not to be missed.

@genocache Thank you for the great pics! My original plan was to go over to Carson City, fuel my F250, then head south on Hwy 395.
But I figured that I-5 would pick up more travel company.

After OE West I am headed south with plans to hit all the National Park Service units in Arizona below the I-40.
Returning through Joshua Tree and Pinnicles Nat Parks.

Thank you for the route advice!

My brother and I had the same plan, to arrive Thursday and get good camping spots. We were planning on finding a spot east of Mojave for Wednesday, but aren’t opposed to going into Mojave instead possibly. How far into Mojave do you want to go? My brothers driving a 96 Land Cruiser and drinks glass so we wanted to be mindful of fuel.

I have the campsite in Mojave marked on the rally point. It is not far off the Kel-Baker road. Next morning planning to drop down to Kelso, then head east to Bullhead city for fuel.
