I think that re-enforces my experience. Tell them exactly what you are doing and they will go out of their way to help; don't try to second guess them. http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?trailname=7618 Eric White
And dusk is a good time to start since you can hike in cool conditions inland five or so miles to camp and get out to the highway the next day.

A funny story: after dropping me off near Crazy Cook monument at dusk, my son drove out of the desert to be intercepted by border patrol at the highway. At first he wasn't sure how to explain that he had just kicked his Dad of the car into the desert so was vague in answering their questions. That's a bad call which led to a vehicle inspection....so the warning applies not just to hikers but also to drivers.
