Stevec,

Givens Hot Springs is about 44 miles from Silver City. Will we still be trailng around Silver City or doing some closer to Givens Hot Springs. This info will help me in locating a room.

If we stay at Givens Hot Springs, we'll still go to Silver City one day. The other days we may go on trails that are closer. I plan to bring a few gas cans with me to keep the tanks topped off. I think one 5-gallon can per rig would be plenty - that's almost a full tank in an LJ, and if you arrive with a full tank, should give you at least a 250 mile range; probably over 300 miles.

If we stay long enough, we could always do a gas run (put everyone's gas cans in one LJ, and drive it into town to fill them up.)

I found this link to OHV trail maps of the area.

http://www.blm.gov/id/st/en/fo/owyhee/ohv.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I printed the small map - it's a bit hard to read without a magnifying glass, but still a good reference to keep in the glovebox. I'll see if my friend still has his map printer, and if so, will have him print me a large map.
