I've made lunch runs to Bridgeport before, never thought of Bodie as a day ride though. Have you got any shots from the Twin Lakes west of Bridgeport? I didn't wake up early enough for a sunrise shot, but I can sure picture one in my mind. Stunning geography back there.
I think your Tenere and mine would get along famously. I'll be on the lookout for a fast Raven when I'm out and about.
PS: My dad used to compete in photography, fun hobby that can make you some money on the side. You've got it too.
