Hmmm...I have a wife of...well, 20 years tomorrow. So I completely understand. And she has been laid off for the third time in three years, and our budget is setup for two incomes. Big ones. So we are completely F'd.

Come by space 8 and I'll buy you a drink.

$4400 Vet bill ..... OUCH !!!!!! I hope it ll worked out for the best.

You are welcome to tuck your trailer into my RV spot (space # 1) as long as there is room after I pull my rig in. Space # 1 looks real big on Google Maps, much larger then on the PS Resort satellite photo.

I may bring (if my buddy who's coming along agrees) the smallest of my three dogs (he's a 10 pounder) but only because I am riding a sidecar rig and will take him with out with me. I wouldn't be comfortable leaving him in the camper even with the A/C running because of the chance (slim though it may be) that I might get hurt out there and end up in a hospital.

You have to ultimately decide whether or not to bring them.

Remember, everybody on the internet has an opinion and you know what they say about opinions ....

Thumb Last Minute Raffle Item!

Mr. Jim Lubin from www.Vehicle-Systems.com has donated two pairs of his


TailGate Latch bars!



Tailgate Latch Bars hold truck tailgates at a 30 angle, creating clearance for motorcycles to be put in parallel to the bed, rather than sideways.

Tailgate remains at an upright angle, so bed cargo can't slide out
Installs and removes in less than 30 seconds
No tools or modifications required
Anodized 6063-T651 and stainless steel construction for all weather durability
A simple, low cost alternative to expensive bed extenders
Available for Chevy/GM, Dodge Ram and Dakota, Toyota Tundra, and Ford full sized trucks
Patent pending Tailgate Latch Bars are made in USA


I've been using these on my Tundra for about 8 years. They work GREAT!

+1 on the tom harrison map. Can be found at REI, sports chalet, etc.

Bring munchies. There is a restaurant and bar across the street but expensive. $15 hamburgers. They have a daily breakfast buffet with all the staples for $10/person. I'll be hitting that up daily.

If budget is an issue and you are a AAA member, just drop by an office and ask for a DV map for FREE. If you're not a AAA member, find a buddy who is and have them get you one.

Do I need to emphasize AAA and not AA?

God, please don't let me win the tailgate extender. I'd have to buy a new truck with a short bed to use it. Nice piece of gear though. How many days will the raffle take at this point?

Needed items for the cooks!

1. Laterns for the cooking area. Between Devil Cat and I, we will have 5 propane tanks. At least three will be used for grills, This would leave two for lanterns. I have one "old" tower that I will bring. My lantern is DOA, if you folks have any ideas offer them up.

2. Thursday I will be rolling in with the grills, coolers, etc. I will need a hand moving and setting up the heavy stuff. I am still restricted from lifting any significant weight. 22oz beers are OK, I checked. So if a big guy in a cowboy hat asks for a hand, please take a minute and help me setup. I have help dialed in for cooking. Thanks in advance. Those that know me know I hate having to ask, but I do need the help.



Joel, Who is cooking Friday/Saturday? Have them PM me so that when we are getting the grills setup we can make it easy for all of us.

The National Geographic Death Valley map is also very useful, to be found at some big bookstores, camping shops, etc. Or at furnace creek or stovepipe wells general stores in the park if you can't score one before the ride.







I'll be happy to help you Lonestar, what time are you planning on arriving? Nancy and I will be in the general area getting Lost starting Monday and coming into Panamint Thursday mid day.

I can bring one, possibly two lanterns and one distribution T / lantern pole. I can also help you lift, preferably the 22oz beers but I guess I'll also help with grills and such.
