Thought it was time to get the conversation started on Buses by the Bridge. If you haven't gone before, it is definitely worth the trip.

Alright, we need a bus count for those leaving Thursday the 12th BEFORE Dawn's Crack, like 5:30am!!! We catch the sunrise right about the time we get to the desert flats. :cool:

As per MY usual, please note AND realize the "rules of engagement" when going along with me to Lake Havafew which are as follows:

1. Have your bus in good tune and running order!
2. We leave at the given time to leave!
3. Show up prior to that time!
4. Be ready to depart at that time, meaning already fueled up, coffeed and/or fed!

Issues: We do realize that shtuff happens. However, having your bus in good running order, tuned, not hemorraging oil, and like that, helps tremendously in preventing major catastrophies! I've been there and trust me, it is no fun being the one who holds a caravan up, specially on long assed trips like this one! Also, it helps having a 2-way CB radio to keep in communication with the group in case something happens, as well as having fun while we're at it! Now, in case something does happen, we will assess the "situation" and come up with the quickest solution in order to keep the caravan going. If we can fix the problem realitively quick, we'll do just that. If on the other hand it is a "catastrophic" event, then a secure place must be found for the broken bus and a tow truck called for the rescue. No fair having all involved lose out on the weekend due to one broken bus! :sad:

With that said, the route from San Diego is as follows:

The 8 freeway east to El Centro where we stop for gas. Grab a donut if you want but this is a quick stop!!! {2 hours}
Then we'll take the 111 north to the 78 east
Go through Glamis
The Whoop-dee-doos
The Ziggy-zaggy
Then the 10 east to the Flying J truck stop at Ehrenberg. Here we stop for gas, strech out and have some "brunch"! {2+ hours}
From right there we'll take Aridzona's Hwy 1 which is the Ehrenburg/Poston Hwy north
Go trough Poston and on to Parker where we'll take the 95 all the way to Lake Havafew City. {2+ hours}

Once there, with some day light still, we set up camp and start enjoying the weekend! :cool:

We had a great time even with the rain. I guess it's a little better when your prepared for rain as opposed to getting drenched by surprise. Greg dropped by with a house warming gift and christened the Apache on it's maiden voyage. My family thought he was a very nice guy for doing so.....Thank you.

No issues in towing and think were ready for BBB.


For those of you wondering how my wife and daughter made out in the rain, they did just fine in their room at the Double tree across the street :roll:

I would laugh but my wife would do the same. She would probably take the kids with her leaving me to be by myself.... no worries there.
