I took a drive out today to the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, Crystal Hill Boondocking area, which is about 12 miles southeast of Quartzsite. There's free Boondocking there but there's a 14 day a year limit on Boondocking at Crystal Hill.
It's kind of a pretty place but the 6 miles of dirt road was a little bit rougher than I would want to drive on with the Arctic Fox. The washboard areas weren't too bad, I've pulled the Arctic Fox on worse, but there were a lot of rocks in the road that look like they had the potential of busting a tire or at least damaging the tire internally so you might have a blowout some time Down the road.
If the Arctic Fox wasn't loaded so heavy, and I didn't worry about my tires as much as I do, I wouldn't mind spending a couple of weeks there. There were only two boondockers there that I could see, but there was a lot more area that I didn't get around to looking at.
I made a video of what the roads look like to get to the Crystal Hill area and I'm going to try to get that up on YouTube tonight.
All in all it was a good day, the weather was beautiful, I got to visit another Boondocking area out in the Arizona desert, and best of all I didn't spend the morning walking behind a snowblower
