Sometimes a much needed but unexpected experience happens, fulfilling needs on so many levels. This was my very short Mojave Road trip.
We love rough-camping in the bush but it had not happened as an entire family for a long time. We cover over 10,000km "overlanding" each year, but sometimes this involves staying at campsites, or overnighting in a small field just off the road, since we are often trying to reach a destination by a certain date. It doesn't compare with being far out in the bush, away from people, and just enjoying the peace of isolation.
