Off-Road Magazine writer on the Mojave Road

"Imagine your favorite Western hero riding into town on a camel. Would Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) look nearly as intimidating riding toward a band of outlaws with both guns blazing and the reins of a camel between his teeth? Does that mental image cause you to unconsciously giggle? Maybe Rooster would have won the battle more easily simply because the outlaws were laughing too hard to fight back...."

Thus begins the story of "Lone Writer's" experience on the Mojave Road. This is a great Off-Road Magazine article posted on their Web site (September 2007), with photos and GPS coordinates for points along the Road.
