Hi all, I am headed back to buckeye next weekend, towing the 61 baja down to play. Need some help on local rules for running the washes. Would like to go from buckeye to wickenburg, but don't want to infringe on private lands without permission. My Baja is licensed in WA state, so no problemo on the highways, big not sure about the wash. Thanks

I don't know laws, but I have been running the washes and deserts for 20+ years and this is what I have learned.

The hassampa is open all the way from buckeye to Wickenburg. Just flow the tire tracks to the gates.

1) if it is Private land it will be posted. You would not be the first to infringe on there lands, so if it bothers them they will post it.

2) when you get to a gate... Leave the gate the way you find it!!! unless it is posted "close gate".

3) "leave only tire tracks and take only photos"

4) tell someone where you are going and when you will be back.

5) bring a cell phone and leave it on a charger so if you get stuck you can walk to a high spot and call for help.

6) bring water.. Hot water is better than, no water. If you are unsure about the water and cant boil it, drink a little and wait 30mins if you don't feel sick drink some more, this will keep you alive.

7) when you stop and think about doing something... add this thought "How long will it take help to get me out if I get hurt."

9) 3 shots means you need help.

10) a loaded gun can feed you.

11) Burning a tire soked in gas on a clear day will bring someone. (you will have 4 tries/try's to get help)

12) if you kill a cow for ANY reason other than hitting it on a "public and county maintained road" you will be responsible for paying the rancher for the full market value of cow and the cost of disposal of what remains.

13) Ranchers and miners will not shoot you for trail riding on their land or clam.. if they don't like it they will close it. you can be shot for removing anything from a mine active or not, even a rock.

14) exploring a mine is a bad idea.

15) removing any cactus from private and public lands will get you a heavy fine. even a dead cactus or part of a cactus. unless for human survival. they don't taste very good but will keep you alive.

16) shooting a cactus will get you put in jail.

17) being in a wash when it is raining anywhere is a bad idea.

well that is all I can think of off the top of my head....

Have fun and enjoy off roading before they close it.

18) it is cooler under the car than in it.

19) stay with the vehicle it is ez-er to see from air craft. make a debris field as large as you can.
A) if you must leave your vehicle ... LEAVE A NOTE OF WHERE YOU ARE TRYING TO GO and your state of heath.

20) remove the biggest mirror from the vehicle and use it to signal low flying air craft. remember... Jets of any kind are not looking for you.

21) "Searching for a network" will kill your cell phone battery.
