Scheduled Desert Explorer Trips
Trip descriptions are usually published in the newsletter at least one month before they are posted on this website.
All Desert Explorers trips require a four-wheel drive vehicle and a working CB unless otherwise specified by the trip leader.
We welcome newcomers, but IF THIS WILL BE YOUR FIRST TRIP, please talk with the trip leader about your vehicle, camping gear, and off-highway driving experience; you won't have a good time if you get stuck, cold, wet, or hungry! Also, please read the "fine print," which describes the rules we follow on our trips.
We now have a satellite telephone for use where conventional telephone or cell-phone service is not available. See the Satellite Telephone Policy. For each trip, the decision to bring the satellite telephone, and if it to be used only for emergencies, is made by the trip leader. Talk with the trip leader if the use of the satellite telephone is important to you.
Due to our current quarantine status and safer-at-home recommendation, our entire trip schedule is POSTPONED. Once all the mayhem is behind us, we will reschedule everything and get back on track. Stay safe and healthy. Happy Trails until we meet again!
If you take a trip on your own, please share your experience by writing it up and sending it with photos to the Newsletter editor. Other Desert Explorers can enjoy the arm chair safari and live vicariously through your experience.
