Vegas to Red Lake on March 30?


Hiya,
I'm flying into Vegas the night of the 30th and need to make my way down to Red Lake to meet up with my gear and friend. I found a GC bus tour ($80) that I can take and jump off at Red Lake, but I figured it was worth asking here:

Is anyone heading through Vegas to Red Lake about the same time or on the 31st? If so, could I beg a ride down there? I'd be happy to split gas and buy a meal or two.

Thanks!

Weird that Google Maps totally denies the existence of the city of Red Lake. They must be researching anti-google alien technology there. Anyway, it's been years since I used MapQuest, but it seems to work:

I am not sure if I could help you with transportation but I think you have the wrong spot in mind.

For Google maps the destination is " Red Lake Mojave " AZ
it is east of Dolan Springs it is about 90 miles from the airport

This is going to be great. Everyone thinks the pond is in a different point. We are going to be taking over AZ in little 3-5 person squads.

Why, when you get Google to give directions from Red Lake to Vegas does it take you 200 miles. Yet, you are saying it is 90 miles.

Why is there such a discrepancy on ways to get there depending on who is asked or which mapping service queried?

It's like the Statistics "refresher" I took last week when the instructor used "A" in two locations in the formula and said that they were different variables.

I was confused at first too but I followed the directions given by frangram and am confident I have the right place in mind.
The satellite views on Bing look good. Since we are coming from the east on I 40 it is a lot closer than Harper's and El Mirage.
Haven't figured out when we will get there but at least by Saturday morning. hopefully Friday sometime
