  • What I did on the way home from Moab

    On the way home I spent the night in Vegas. The next morning after breakfast I headed out at around 10am. So along the way I said why not run part of the Mojave Road from Baker through Afton Canyon and across Soda Dry Lake. So I got off the 15 Frwy and headed along a fence around Soda Dry Lake to find the entrance to the path. I found it and proceded across Soda Dry Lake stopping for a few photos and at the monument to look at the plauge. Then on through Afton Canyon and back onto the 15 Frwy and home.

    I was keeping track of fuel mileage out to and back from Moab. Here's the surprising numbers for a XJ on 35's and 4.88 gears.

    From Primm, NV (Stateline) to Moab, UT 17.3 mpg
    From Moab, UT to Richfield, UT 16.7 mpg
    From Richfield, UT to Las Vegas, NV 18.6 mpg
    From Las Vegas, NV to Norco, CA 16.9 mpg (includes 38 miles off road on the Mojave Road parts in loose sand)
