Heading to the Havasu MVD for an appointment Wednesday morning on the 23rd. Been a number of years since I've driven out there so which way would be the best or easiest from Long Beach not towing? 15/40? 10/Mohave rd? 10/Rice? Thanks all...

I would say it depends what time you leave (traffic). They are all pretty much the same distance.

Might want to consider picking up a load of bootlegged ice cream. Some might be jonesing since their last hit of the creamy goodness. :looking:

I know there has been construction on rice road over the last few weeks so I would recommend the 40 since time is of the essence.

Like @Dirtbag said, we go the 10 to Blythe too but instead of taking AZ 95 we take the road to Ehrenburg/Poston and come into Parker that way and then you can shoot up to Havasu. We're also in LB and going that way takes us 3 hr 45 minutes to Parker. Been going that way since our son was born 33 years ago and we stopped going Rice.

Cross the river on the 10, exit the first offramp.

Not to mention those pretty yellow butterflies. ;)
we’re headed home last week and they were out in force.

I was telling Lori about how we use to flag the crop duster planes back in the day. Get out there before the sun came up and work til about 9am. Not sure what we were getting sprayed with, probably malathion, but we’d stink for a day or two. As I was telling her this story, which she’s heard a few dozen times, on the East side of the road there was a plane dusting. Man, he was down on the deck! I don’t remember them being that low when we were kids.
