Amargosa Days 2019

With 6 vehicles, the Pahrump Valley 4 Wheelers contingent may have been the largest entry in the Amargosa Days Parade. The Fire Department was close, however one of their units dropped out after hitting the side of the station house door while exiting and destroying the track. It was one of the more exciting events. We can throw candy at this procession and it only takes a small bag to get from the start to the finish, even with two people tossing confectionery from both sides of the Jeep.

With a nice, early 4:00 AM start, we were in Tonopah to top off our tanks at about 6:30. Traveling East on Highway 6, we stopped at Warm Springs to see the bighorn sheep gathered there. After that quick break, we turned South on the Extraterrestrial Highway 375. When our group reached the road marked Reveille, we consulted the map and the GPS and guessed that the road did not traverse the Reveille Range, but armed with more information now, we’re pretty sure it does.

Carpenter Canyon Run

My sister Gert (who also goes by Jennifer) and her husband Tim were in town and asked if I would take them on an easy trail to break in their new Toyota 4Runner nicknamed the Brown TuRD. Well, being old and not hearing very well, I thought they wanted to go on a trail that would find the weak components of their off pavement excursion vehicle and break them. I also asked if it could be a PV4W club run, thinking not very many members would be interested on Easter weekend.

Pleasant Canyon Club Run

There are several forks to take at Mormon Gulch and the first one we tried didn’t seem to go in our desired direction, so the resolute pair went back and chose another. Our second selection took us to Roger’s Pass. From there, we could have gone down the hill to Arrastre Spring that the larger PV4W group had just visited the previous day, but we opted to explore some new trails on our way back to Panamint Valley. Our preferred route ran in a westerly direction along the ridge above Butte Valley and we looked down at a large portion of Saturday’s club run.

Goler Wash Club Run

Considering that the length of the trip necessitated an early start, we had a pretty good turn out. Five Jeep Wranglers with six Pahrump Valley 4 Wheelers club members made the 4:50 AM driver’s meeting at the Horizon Market on Highway 372 and Linda Street. Our caravan reached Ashford Mill at about 6:00, began airing down and we were on West Side Road just after the official 6:16 sunrise. The group drove West on Warm Spring Canyon Road, stopping along the way at Grantham Mine and Warm Springs Mine to do some exploring.
