Thanks to Google Maps we were able to find this remote place about 30 miles east of Victorville. The Anderson Dry Lake is part of the Johnson Valley OHV area. Based on the desert environment, somewhere in its family tree it is related to Death Valley.
It is easy to find a level camping spot on a dry lake and we breezed through the safety check and registration. There were four runs to choose from that ranged from easy to very difficult. I picked a "moderate" level and kept my fingers crossed.
I lined up early for the run to hopefully get a position toward the front. Sometimes the trail gets pretty chewed up as the vehicles traverse the obstacles and it gets more difficult if you are in the back of the pack. Fifteen vehicles lined up for this run, fourteen Jeeps and one non-Jeep (my 1969 Bronco).
