Mordor v7.0 April 28, 2022

Postby Wolfgang92025 » Sun Apr 10, 2022 10:37 pm

Sorry about the short notice for this one.............

Mordor v7.0 is a go !!!!

This trip is in memory of Randy Phillips (Wolffarmer) who passed on October 19, 2021.

When: Thursday, April 28,2022 to Sunday, May 1, 2022
Where: Cream Can Junction, north of Minidoka Idaho.
How to get there: go east of Minidoka about two miles and turn north on the road (Arco-Minidoka road) that says "Desert Road" Or something like that. About 20 miles north is Cream Can Junction. The camp will be west about 1/4-1/2 miles to some low hills/bluffs and camping on the east side of those. If some sheep person is not there already. If that is the case, I will find some place that you will run on to me and my Woody teardrop. The road to Cream Can Junction is a wide gravel road suitable for pretty much any car and trailer.
What to do: Plan is to spend a couple hours visiting with Randy's sisters at his old place. The rest is open...
Some places to explore are Split Butte, Bear Trap Cave, Crystal Ice Cave (to go inside takes some serious climbing gear), Wapi Park & Pillar Butte, also found some lave tubes (edit Lariat Cave) on the map to explore near Wapi Park . Could take the Arco-Minidoka road the rest of the way to Arco, get a milk shake and come back.
What you might see: for starters, lots of open space. Not a lot of traffic (maybe 3 or 4 vehicles a day). Last few times we have seen snakes, but not right around camp. The area does support all kinds of wild life, but it does require some luck to get a brief glimpse. Likely to hear coyotes during the night of in the distance.
Cell signal: not likely for phone calls, but on surrounding higher ground you can usually get texts in the early morning and in the evenings.
What to bring: probably will not be very cold, or very rainy. Expect wind. I would not expect conditions to be good for an open fire. So plan accordingly. No gas to buy in Minidoka.

And of course there is no facilities out there. Bring what you think you will need for 3 or 4 days of fun.
What do you think?

Was there a set time to meet up with Randy's sister? I have to head back fairly early on Sunday.

I wish I could join you but I have to travel for a Drs appointment the following week so it's just too much too fast for. It wasn't supposed to be cold in early May last year either was it?

You did, I keep it in the truck so I always have it, it works well for my head but not for other bits. Mostly this was just bad timing, I need to get out camping...
