from the map, i'd guess you'll be going thru 29 palms, north to amboy, which
will put you on old highway 66. get water in amboy if available. lots of water.
if you head east on 66, next certain water will be a truckstop just north of the
i-40 junction. 66 will continue to juction hwy 95 which goes north to henderson
and vegas. 66 is very good condition, plenty of free camping sites. the section
of 95 south to i-40 the same. i can't say about the route north.
about 10 miles east of amboy, you can go north on kelbaker road. be prepared
for a long (30-mile) climb. not terribly steep, just loooong, into the mojave
national preserve. the dot on the map marked kelso is just an old railroad
depot under renovation. no water. at this point i headed nw to baker, but i
believe you can go ne to cima and into nevada. from there you hit the 164,
and it "appears" you can get to either i-15 or hwy 95.
