    I’d most likely stay in the Yosemite/ Mammoth area.

    Rubicon for sure. Then maybe Mojave road. Not hard wheeling, but scenic and a cool adventure. Gonna be hot as hell though.

    Plus CA is big and you'd lose a whole day driving that far. Big bear is fun, but to me it's like an OHV park.

    I’d rather be on a fire road in the Sierras... than any trail in Big Bear. The scenery is awesome up there.

    Do they have to be wheeling trails?

    We have family about an hour from Joshua Tree. Anything that you’d recommend that way?

    Doesn’t have to be wheeling, we love hiking as well.

    Thanks you, and everyone else for the input so far. Appreciate it!

    So, here's the thing, you've got 7 days to play and the Rubicon will take up at least 2 of those days. Depending on when you get to the trailhead and what time you get off of it, you may already be out 3-4 of those days. Is heading down to the Joshua Tree area to visit family a must? If so, that will eat up a day as well and you're essentially out of time. You can still make it work so that you get to see stuff along the way but California is a big state and you need to plan things accordingly.

    Oh, my bad. I assumed JT was near DV. No, I do not want to spend a day just traveling to see family on this trip (if they want to see us, I’ll make them to trek up to see us, haha).

    LOL - DV is epic in the summer time and worthy of a visit if only to see how crazy hot it can really get out there. That would definitely be a more realistic place to check out on your trip than JT which is clear down at the bottom of the state.

    What I would highly recommend is that on the way down, you make a stop over at Bodie as it really is one of the finest examples of a ghost town anywhere.

    If you've never been to Yosemite, that is a must as well. Crowded as all hell but worth seeing at least once.

    Like Eddie said if you have time, Yosemite and if Tioga pass is open take that over to Bodie. Or other way around. Bodie is freaking awesome.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
