The Road Warrior Weekend Went Well Beyond Thunderdome

I like the 'Mad Max' movies, I really do. I like ThunderDome, with Tina Turner (and the song she did for it, so good), but I especially like Road Warrior, with their hunt for petrol, and the wild child who doesn’t speak. So I was disappointed to learn of the Road Warrior Weekend, because I was not invited.

This one-time-only, three day love affair with all things 'Mad Max' went down in the Mojave desert. With people building replicas of vehicles and even gyrocopters, it looks like it was a real blast. The only thing missing from the Road Warrior Weekend is Mel Gibson (Mel Gibson circa Mad Max, not modern day Mel Gibson, can you say ‘buzz kill?'). Stats for Mad Max Campouts Trending: Older & Mild
