    This thread is a continuation of my thread on the western section of the Mojave Road.

    This portion of the Mojave Road covers the areas between Kelbaker and Ivanpah roads and is almost minivan friendly, especially Cedar Canyon Road. Any 2WD truck would make it unless it is muddy. The Mojave Road mailbox is in the western portion of this section and you can add your name to the logbook, unless of course someone left the book out in the rain. There are camping spots by the Beale Mountains (fire-pits are the only thing offered here) along with the Mud Hills and Hole-in-the-Wall campgrounds south of Cedar Canyon Road.

    Camping on the cold ground in a two-man tent sucks. If I was smart I would’ve stopped at the Beale Mountains for the night instead of pushing on in the dark. I went from west to east and the cairns (piles of rock along the trail) will always be on the left.

    My starting location:

    Thanks. Yeah, it was pretty terrible. I should've slept in the bed or cab.

    I was using the Rexing V1 with a pair of 32 GB Micro SD cards for these videos. I've since upgraded to the Rexing S500 and am using a pair of 64GB cards now. I'm not a big fan of GoPros and prefer to use a camera inside of the cab. I wouldn't count on the suction cup to hold on for hours at a time, don't have to worry about battery life, and the lens will always be clean. I take all of the videos at 720P resolution which gives good quality but doesn't take up too much memory.
