It has been done before, but IMHO, not worth the risk of falling asleep at the wheel on the drive home. 6 hours driving each way plus a full day of riding is a brutal combo if you're solo.A-NON-A said:Is it complete lunacy to try and drive from Lake Elsinore/Corona to Mammoth ... ride and drive home same day?
Mapquest says 300 miles but my brother was telling me it was a 6 hour drive?
Anyone try this before?
How long was the drive for you guys?1herm4matrix said:I'm from Elsinore and currently in mammoth. I will be riding in the morning along with some friends. I would not drive from Elsinore to mammoth then ride all day and drive back. I notice at some rest stops, a few cars and rv's so maybe driving the night before and sleeping for a few hours. I'm staying at an rv park for a few days.
Well I drove from Elsinore to yosemite to lake tahoe and final to mammoth. I'm towing a fithwheel so drive time is slower than would be in a car or just a truck. I think about 6 hours from Elsinore without a trailer would a rough estimate.A-NON-A said:How long was the drive for you guys?
Just got home, drive was closer to seven hours with a trailer. I would do it again, stayed in an rv park 2 miles from the village, and got shuttled to the top. I also did northstar in lake tahoe and I would rather do northstar again. Not much of a drive distance between both places.A-NON-A said:How long was the drive for you guys?
