Could you elaborate on Christmas tree pass? Were you in a four wheel drive,Hello Jim

Probably more than just me have thought about this road before. Thx in
The first 3 or 4 miles seem interesting, then the road gets real
bad. We are talking approximately 18 miles of unpaved, rutted
desert terrain and bone jarring. The road gets so bad you are
traveling at 4 or 5 mph and continued this way for over 3 hours
wishing it would end. I was really concerned for our safety
as we saw only two vehicles and that was several miles
into the trip and they were going in the opposite direction.
Maybe they were smart and had turned arround. The road is
unpaved and unmaintained, anything you see in the first
two miles is repeated in the next 16. The road was mostly
1 1/2 lanes, sometimes two. You try to aim your vehicle
on the best portion, which for many miles was the wind
blown berm consisting of sand.
We went back to our hotel in Laughlin. When I tried to
restart my car (1997 Toyota Camry) it failed to start.

leaking acid and died. The battery was less than two
years old, it had been a replacement for my original
