    Trying to find a map for the race? I'll be bringing a motor home out to the race where's the best to spectate Shea rd or Bouse. How do you get to the Bouse areas?

    As far as camping with a motorhome, Shea Rd. up near the road closure would be a safe bet. There is a fairly large camping/spectating area overlooking Osborne Wash to the south, and the goat trail to the north. Not much room for a motor home along Shea Rd. before the the 1st Osborne Wash/Shea Rd. crossing. Have never spectated at Bouse, and I don't think you can camp at that spectator area, but to get there, head southeast on the 95/72 towards Quartzsite, stay to the left on 72 towards Bouse, when you get to Bouse, turn left at Plomosa Rd, Spectating area is at the "Y".

    shea rd pretty good. you get the option to watch them start a lap and you get to see them come in for there lap, tho it does fill up pretty quick.

    Here's what BITD says about spectating:

    There are (3) spectator areas for the race; one is on Shea Road and two in Bouse at the “Y”. Both areas have walk-in day use areas. The following are prohibited:
    1. Camping in any area outside the designated spectator areas.
    2. Parking, stopping, or standing any vehicle outside of the designated spectator areas.
    3. Failure to keep your site free of trash and litter during the period of occupancy or failing to remove all personal equipment, trash, and litter upon departure.
