Hiking, camping and 4WD in the Mojave Desert, Death Valley and Eastern Sierra

These days I'm driving a Toyota FJ Cruiser on desert dirt roads instead of the 10-ton bicycle of all those years past–and then hiking from there. Things change!

OK, where do I go next to break in the FJ a little bit more?

From Hole-in-the-Wall Visitor Center, the next obvious route for me is Woods Wash Road. I camped a few miles down that way for a week a couple of years ago with my bicycle.
