Trail scout trip near Carson NV

Sorry Just found this forum or I would have invited those here to join. I will for the next trip.
-------

Recap of trail scouting trip.

The plan for this trail scouting trip was to see if the route posted would be good for a planned over night weekend to see several ghost towns of the course of a weekend. Sadly while the trails was a BLAST this would not be a good trail to use for the planned overnight weekend. I will be looking for another route to use which can accommodate all types of vehicles.

The group was made up of myself in a brand new stock raptor, my buddy and his wife in is four door Jeep with 37 inch tires and a friend from the drives group in is Dodge Ram 1500 with a lift kit and 35’s and his buddies.

The trail itself was a mostly hard pack dirt and with the usual rocks all over the place. A few areas of the trail were washed out from the recent monsoon rains in the area a few weeks ago. We were able to navigate a path through the wash areas with some very “extreme” routes. As long as you had 4x4 on you were able to navigate the crazy sections.

It took us about 5 hours to complete the entire trail which includes a lunch stop, bio breaks, and a firearms session to take out some evil oranges. Once we are out of the adventure trail we headed to Ludwig where we hit the fast section of off road which was what I was looking for.

---For those who see this and wish to join future off road trips and or help scout routes for future expeditions. Sign up for the emails I am creating for trail adventures at [url=http://www.raddrives.com/offroad.html[/url] ---


Start of the trail.









Short stop to defend the group against killer oranges. Time to break out the fire power.

The following images are as we worked our way over the mountains before descending down to hit the flat land to Ludwig.
