I’m heading out to Black Rock Desert (NV) next weekend with my two boys and some guys from church. Rendezvous in Gerlach at joes Bar for an early dinner at 530 on Friday (12th).

never been, super stoked. Will be the only cruiser out there (80) but figured I throw this out there for any takers who have never been. Will be a good guided tour, our Buddy been going for years. Conditions look to be perfect on the lake bed. Will hit hot springs and probably fire off some rounds too. Cheers

Guide cancelled on us on account of the wind (gusts up to 40 saturday afternoon, N/NW) and possible showers (not forecasted anymore). I am 50:50 about following through on my own (with 8 and 10 yr olds) and sticking to the hills. First night camp somewhere off soldier meadows in sheltered cove west side of the playa, 20-30 miles north of Gerlach. Day two; explore playa in the AM. head towards High Rock Canyon and camp there. head home sunday.

Anyone with experience in this area--advice is much appreciated. Here is my "planned" route day 2:

Yes we saw a pair of pronghorn above the springs in what I call the savanna area. Definitely a bonus, never seen one before, enhanced the safari experience.

That was one of my favorite trips I have take. We did the entire Applegate-Lassen trip through and I can tell you it was a great trip. Would never make it in the Cruiser as there is just not enough fuel, but my truck made it fine.
