Sadly, not a “dessert trip”.
We stumbled upon this guys’s story on MTBR on Monday. His plan was to take the El Paso Gasline Road 300 miles from Pheonix, AZ to “somewhere in California”, probably somewhere near Mojave. Across the desert. In late spring. When it’s hot, not as hot as the fires of Hades, but plenty hot to addle a human brain.
He didn’t quite make it all 3oo miles, mostly due to choice of shorts and lack of cold beer (totally understandable). But he did have quite an adventure and take some great photos.
