Location 30: Mojave Outpost

It's a long way to....
We all visit the Mojave Outpost a lot to trade with Lacey; she may be miserable but she's usually got a good selection. And let's face it, you don't get better (or pricier) repairs anywhere in the Wasteland.

Especially when you're walking
Sad to say, there's nothing there in real life - least of all the giant NCR statues.

But the road exists: it's the Interstate 15 again, sloping sharply upwards as you head southwest away from Primm, and in these pictures I'm just brushing the edge of the Mojave National Preserve, the park area of the desert.

I can't go much further down this road. Let's check out the scenery at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park.

  2. Actually, there is a real life equivalent to the Mojave Outpost.

    It's the Agricultural Checkpoint for California, which is in the outskirts of Yermo, California.

    Which, in reality, is an hour and a half from the Nevada/California border, but it is there. I've passed through it many times.

    And, it looks almost exactly like the Mojave Outpost. They just added a few buildings on the eastbound lanes. (The Checkpoint is only on westbound lanes.)

  3. Thanks for that Ninja! Would it be on the route between Joshua Tree and LA? I did pass something that looked like the Outpost, but thought I couldn't possibly have scored another chance hit.

  4. It's on I-15, past Primm. Actually, it's only 12 miles east of Barstow, CA.

    But, I don't think you would've been allowed to stop and take pictures of it, since it is an active government facility.

    Taking a picture while driving by might be possible. I might make a friend take a picture of it the next time we drive through (Which is in October). Mostly because I want to do an article on my livejournal about it and other items...
