Looks like I will be out here for the day on Saturday. I will probably have to leave before the cookout on Saturday night.

Well, you can sit around and wait for someone else to organize something in your area, or you can make it happen yourself. It all starts with you starting the thread.

Box Canyon rd. could very well be closed. I've had to take a detour through Indio a couple times when the road was closed due to flash flooding and the sand it left behind on the road. That adds another hour to a 4.5 hour trip. Do you have anyone to call to see if the place you are going to be camping will be accessible?

Not really, but some people are heading out there early.. One year we had to camp right off box canyon road instead of in painted canyon because it was washed out and you couldn't get through to mecca.

We have also bee in painted canyon two years when a flash flood came down.. Not as impressive as it sounds, but water was about 1-2 feet deep heading down painted canyon road.

Here is where we camp... and that is actually us in the google maps pic.. This was from a few years ago..
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sou...12414,-116.0072&spn=0.001461,0.00239&t=h&z=19

This year seems like its going to be at least "interesting"..

EDIT: It just occured to me. That is where I am going to be camping that weekend. That is NOT where everyone else will be or where the wheeling will be. Just didn't want to confuse anyone.

According to the weather service, its going to rain Friday (22), not Saturday or Sunday (23-24).
We should be fine. I will be coming out Friday evening as soon as I can herd the girls out of the friggin' house. If it rains, it rains.
We have been at Truckhaven when it rains before. You just need to stay out of the main washes as much as possible.
