Syncro Safari registration was only open for a few minutes this year. Due to high demand, all the spots were filled within minutes and an additional two spots were also added and filled. There is currently a short waiting list to participate in this year's adventure. Usually, there is someone who can't make it after registering, so the waiting list can get used. If you'd like a spot on the waiting list, email Jim Davis at Syncrohead at aol dot com.
Registration will be open for participants to begin the registration process at
6:00PM Pacific Time on Sunday, March 1, 2015.
All that's needed at that time is an email to start your process which must be followed up with registration completed within the following 6 days. Registration and cost information is now available here:

We'll camp north of Lake Tahoe in Nevada and spend the week exploring the region. While Camp Syncro won't move, we sure will. We expect 4WD trails on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to visit interesting places including peaks with views of Lake Tahoe. On Tuesday and Thursday, we'll get a chance to rest or take part in other local recreation of our own choice.
We've had a cancellation, so there's ONE SPOT OPEN right now for Syncro Safari, Mojave Road '14! Visit the registration page and ignore the message there about it being full. It's not as of today.

A desert adventure across America's most remote desert region.
Experience what it might have been like to see the Mojave in the moccasins of explorer Jedediah Strong Smith in 1826. Our expedition will take in all 140+ miles of the Mojave Road from the Colorado River shores in Nevada to Camp Cady, and then some...
This year’s Syncro Safari will be a springtime event to take advantage of the nice spring weather in the Mojave Desert. The dates are Sunday, April 6th through Saturday, April 12th.
The venue will be the 140+ mile trek along the historic Mojave Road. While some have done the Mojave Road in just 2-3 days or even at near-race pace in a single day, our adventure will spend five days traversing this route. This will afford us a relaxed schedule and the opportunity to see all the most significant sites along the route. We’ll spend three of the five days travelling along the route allowing a couple additional days for sight-seeing, hiking, bird-watching, “wildflowering”, and photography.
June 30 to July 6th we were in North-Central Idaho near the path of Lewis & Clark's crossing of the Bitterroot Mountains in their expedition of 1804-1806. We camped on the Lochsa River, near the Selway River, both designated "Wild & Scenic". We'll took rempote routes to a few spots where Lewis & Clark trekked and camped during their struggle to get across these mountains. Along with river rafting, a parade and other scenic places nearby, this trip was fun as well as rich in history and scenery.
More sites along the Lewis & Clark trail on the western side of the Bitterroots where they were finally able to leave the mountains behind and get aid from the Nez Perce tribe. Included a lunch at beautiful Lewis & Clark Grove.
