I just added my info to the SAR DB. I'm on standby but figured I'd do it anyway so my dumb ass doesn't forget.

Good man, so a Safari is enough? I'd rather not put my aux tank back on.

Safari should be enough... but you will probably need to use a bit of right-wrist-restraint during the ride.

Just saw this was up. My calendar MIGHT be clear for this. If I can make it I'll try and bring some of my "homemade refreshments"

Added it to the list on page 1.
This sounds like a ride I'd like to do, but I'm hoping I can get johngil to lead one to the salt trams again for Saturday. Maybe he wants to do this one instead. John is a really good ride leader if you can get him to do it.


For lighter bikes we have a track into White Spot Mountain that is pretty awesome. You end up across DV from Chloride Cliffs. There are a couple of hidden campsites up there that are pretty cool.


See if you can spot 'waldo-gil' in the center.




Here's another view from up there. That's Furnace Creek at the very far end of the valley.

Sorry, soap box just snuck out.
Maybe your union could reorganize and fire a few dozen administrators so you teachers can teach the kids since that is the whole point.
