Last year, in June, I drove across Death Valley. Beforehand, having never experienced it before, I got myself a bit worked up about the desert driving and the toll it would take on my vehicle. As it turned out the journey was incident free and I had nothing to worry about.
Next June I intend on driving from Kingman to Oatman and on to Laughlin.
Should I used my new found experience to not worry about this drive or is the steep and curvy route from Kingman to Oatman a level above Death Valley in terms of tough desert driving?
