Dude that's like a 3 hr ride in a car. Your best bet is to use google earth to plot out a trail line that will take you through the mountain ranges. Figure out a way to cache it save it to your google account and try to get it on your phone.

Ya it's a 5 to 6 hour off road session and u stay in Vegas it's been done a lot but trying to find specifics in the route... You can either do there one day and back the next or have a chase vehicle to pick up in Vegas

Do a search on Race-Dezert.com. Several have done this and Chad Ragland had a whole thread with pictures. He and a buddy did it in a new Raptor. I know he kept his gps plots as he talked about doing it again with a group. I think he did his in two days. I dont remember what town / hotel he stayed in, but I would think you would need to be street legal to get to town.

Sounds like fun let me know when you wanna do this. Could probably only go to primm seen how that may be more off road friendly then vegas.

I live in the southwest of Las Vegas, our backyard backs on the desert. We want to follow the trails to Jean, gas up at the Shell, follow the trails to Goodsprings, and then travel to a gas station on Blue Diamond (it's the last gas station on the road to Parump it's near Red Rock) I just need a few more things to purchase for my xp and we going.

Defanitly do able, by looking at google earth there are power line roads all the way, but thats to easy, i would say using google earth and entering way point with long. and lat. should'nt be a problem. Need to plan this when it gets cooler..

November to early December I say before it gets freezing out there. Im assuming we would start probably 8 or 9 in the morning.

What about security for your ride? What can you do to keep it from being jacked while you are sleeping in the hotel room or partying in the casino? Tie them altogether with long ass cable.

Yeah and I have heard that if you talk to security ahead of time you can park them where it is more lighted and closer to casino. Its not a new concept...there have been numerous utv groups that have done the same ride.

Thanks plumber!!!
No sweat. I think that this ride should be done in October. November is too cold out here in the desert. Believe me, I know. It always starts to get cold in October. Thats my thoughts on that, but its your ride so let us know when.
