Pack strategically... but the lighter the better.

Plan for less fuel economy then normal.

And drag along a friend if you can. You get more photos that way.

Thanks for the info.....the running shoes make a lot of sense..would never have thought about that..I'm planning on a 2.5 day training session with RAWHYDE and a 2 day trip with them as well ino the mojave desert in September this year....this will help with seeing what the desert is really like....and of course what the riding is like too......I have extra gas can to carry but Death Valley looks extrememly remote...what did you do about fuel?

Terry
