Rex is leading this run. We're going to the Turquoise mine on 1/22/2022. Meet at 9:00 and leave at 9:30 am. We're meeting at Whiskey Pete's in Primm Nevada. 40 miles south of the Spaghetti Bowl on I-15. From there we go South into California about another 40 miles, so top off in Primm. This is rated a 2.5 because of one tricky spot on the road to the mine. The rest of the run is a 1.5. Very scenic and a lot of fun! 4x4 and high clearance required. Hope to see you there! 8)

I just wanted to mention that our destination for the ride's starting point on dirt is actually I-15 south in California at the Halloran Springs Road Exit 259. Not Halloran Summit Road which is the exit before Halloran Springs. I am sure we will get a bit spead out on the highway, especially with the big hill climb, but it is about 37 miles south of Primm on I-15, Exit 259, Halloran Springs Road.

NWS wind advisory for Saturday for San Bernardino County will cause me to stay home. I really wanted to drive this new trail with the group. Have fun and be safe.
