Exit I-10 west at Hovatter road  (about 100 miles west of the US60/I-10 
interchange)

Go North (that's a right turn for the directionally challenged)

You will travel between 1.8 and 1.9 miles and then see a "road" that 
branches off the the left (west) at an angle, last time I was there there 
was a yellow  "Unimproved Road" sign.

Travel west until you get to a fence opening with a cattle guard (1 to 2 
miles I think),  Watch for any washed out areas, they are not deep but if 
you get suckered into driving quickly you can get suprised and damage 
something.  I have been hauling the tent trailer behind the turbo volvo in 
there for years and never had a problem.  I have not recorded the exact 
distance).

Turn north (right) and follow the scraped path north about half a mile.  If 
you get to the place where the fence jogs back to the east you are just past 
or even to where people set up.  This is the only part of the drive where 
you will need to exercise extreme care as there are sometimes large rock in 
the path.  I generally stop and pick them out as I go in.

If you are arriving after dark, tap the horn a couple of times and one of us 
will walk over to the "road" and intercept you.

We set up 50-60 feet to the west of this "road"

Cell phone coverage (at least for us Verizon users) is excellent I can be 
reached at 602-717-0171  I am driving a white GMC Safari Van and the tent 
trailer.
