(visited by Sam Gallucci)

14-Jun-2003 -- Before attempting 36N 113W I attempted 35N 112W earlier in the day. I approached Peach Springs, AZ which is the Hualapai Reservation HQ. I went to the Hualapai Lodge (as instructed on the phone) to request a permit for hiking the area. I was informed at the Lodge that the permit for that particular area was available at the Wildlife Preservation Office down the street. I went over to the office where I met a very helpful young lady. She told me that a permit was not required to travel Indian Route 18 but I could not get off the pavement without a permit. I asked her about the permit. She told me that, the day before, her boss had a meeting with all the employees informing them that no permits for hiking or getting off the pavement were to be issued. She told me that I could try to get to point secretly but if I was caught out there by ranger she give would give me a citation with a fine. I told her that I would only do things legally. She reassured me that no permit was required as long as I stayed on the pavement of Route 16. I thanked her and proceeded to the intersection of Indian Route 16 and US66. I took the signage picture where Uwe was at the beginning of the route. I noticed a Reservation equivalent of a policeman coming up behind me. I waved him down and asked about the permit situation and he concurred with what the lady said. I asked him about traveling on the pavement and he said it was fine as long as I didn't get off the pavement. I asked him who I could talk to about getting permission. He gave me the name of the person in charge of Reservation Resources. I thanked him and continued on the route to the closest point I could find. I found the point and took the pictures without getting out of my car. I got as close as 9.52km (5.92mi). I turned around and proceeded back to US66. I stopped back at the Wildlife Preservation Office and asked for the Resources person's contact information. I got her business card and plan on contacting her to get written permission. Not having enough time for a third confluence, I continued back to Southern California via Historic Route 66.
