Once across the I-15 freeway on Kelbaker Road, this Mojave National Preserve trip is really starting
The freeway noise is still nearby, but behind me now, as I start my way up Kelbaker Road, into the great expanse of unpopulated desert. It's a great feeling each time I begin a trip by riding up this road, slowly leaving the "real world" behind.
Next services: 76 miles (I won't be going that far today). This sign is rightfully intended to scare you into a reality check if you haven't been out here before. Do you have water? Do you know where you will get your next water if you get a flat tire?
