|UPDATE JANUARY 24TH 2022
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and New Years holiday
Rasor Road received much rain over that period and hopefully
will lead to a bountiful spring wildflower bloom. Hope to see
you out there. Take care, Tim
UPDATE JANUARY 2018
The road into camp is a little soft just before you enter the
camping area but there are three or four lines, one should get
you to the camping area so choose wisely :). It's very dry out
here so expect dust if exploring in a group. Beautiful weather
though. Hopefully we will see some rain before spring.
Take care and see you at Rasor,
Latest Road Conditions Jan 2014
The road into camp was in great shape. Good moisture just
under the surface makes for good traction. Be sure to stay on
the well traveled road with your motor home or trailer as it is
still soft enough to get stuck in the sand if you blaze your own
The Shell Gas Station at Rasor Road is doing banner business
with the folks traveling to and from Vegas. Lines for fuel and
the restroom are very long. It's all good as long as the gas
station remains open for us off-roaders.
I have updated a few photos of Afton and corrected a few
broken links. I will be adding some more pages and photos
soon. Check back often. Hope you enjoy the website.
Look forward to hearing from you, drop me an email.
Road Condition Update 2012
It looks like the road was packed well during the Thanksgiving
holiday. No problems were reported. The Mojave River is
running at the 17 FT. level near Victorville. Should make for
some interesting rides in Afton Canyon! It has been very cold
at night, so keep your batteries charged and propane tanks
full. See the temperature graph below - Global warming, yea
We all miss you Guy! Your memory lives on in our hearts.
Rasor just is not the same without you.

Kati wrote in with some Rasor Family History:
Clarence McAlliff Rasor was my grandfather on my father's side. He was a
surveyor for the Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad that ran through the
Baker area transporting bentonite and borax. Rasor was the name of one of
the water stations along the route, in honor of him. I've never been to see it,
but my brother has. There used to be a few buildings, but they are all gone.
The T&T was closed down in about 1940. If you "google" Clarence Rasor
(www.ttrr.org/img_dbf/shosh_01.html) you will find a website that gives the
history of the Tonopah & Tidewater. There is a picture of my grandfather
standing next to some of the people on the last train ride. Somewhere in this
house I have a picture of him and a newspaper article about him. I once
stopped at the Rasor Rd. Beacon Station and had promised myself I'd send
a copy of the both so they could hang it in the cafe. Always nice to know a
bit a of local history. But, here I am, three years later... 6 years ago, I rode
my horse from Barstow to Laughlin, NV and passed over the old RR bed
of the T&T. I stopped and got off my horse and had my picture taken of
me standing on it. I found a few splinters of old railroad ties, kept one as a
souvenir. I'd love to have a RR spike, but with the war in the early 40's, I'm
sure all were scrapped and used for the war effort.
I'll have to rummage around in the family photos to find a picture.
Thanks for the History - I hope you will find us a photo of your grandfather
