    2017 Noobs Rally #12, March 30th – April 2nd
    PANAMINT SPRINGS RESORT, CALIFORNIA​


    May sounds like a riding rally, but really, more of a camping event and meet-up of dual sport and adventure riders. Riding is whatever you and your friends want to do.

    The goal is to facilitate an event that will provide an opportunity for beginners or those lacking experience and skills to become better and safer riders. It is the place to meet other riders with the same or similar skill level, thus will allow them to feel at home.

    Many others come to hang out with their buddies as well as make new friends. For majority of individuals, there’s the convenience to find new riding buddies or join a group.


    EVENT CALENDAR




    MARCH 29 (Wednesday) – OPTIONAL

    Many people shows up at least a day early so they get to see more places. We have blocked off the on-line registration for the entire PSR accommodations in order to guarantee the early birds a place to stay and retain their spots for the rest of the event. We will release the March 29th block reservation by January 31st for the public. For reservation and payments, contact PSR directly by email, and mention you are part of the rally.

    There’s a plan where early arrivals will head out and camp overnight at the Hot Springs after they stake their camping space at PSR. Contact Migelito by PM or post. You will find him at RV site #1 and he’ll remind you not to bring your swimming trunks.

    RIDING: Find your group or ride with your friend. Ride groups are planned by individuals before the event.

    GROUP RIDES

    http://ridelist.robgapps.com/index.cfm?event=main.index

    As has been posted on page one and otherwise - this is a CAMPING EVENT not an ORGANIZED RIDING EVENT. There will be people going out on rides and others, including noobs, can optionally join in. This event is not a competition or paid riding event - which would require group permits and event insurance for NPS and BLM. Everyone has to sign a waiver to this effect when signing up for the event. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN.

    BLM has a rule requiring permits for off-road ride groups over 6(?) riders - however they cannot limit groups on state or county roads, and any group over 6 can easily 'meet up' with another group. Just know who your group of 6 is.

    OVERFLOW PARKING

    If you reference the map on post # 4 I'd like to describe some of the overflow parking areas.

    All parking areas work best to park at a diagonal. This leaves room for in and out access and gets the most vehicles in the smallest spaces. If you need help spotting or backing a trailer just ask another NooB. Meet new friends !
    Multiple rows of vehicles might be necessary. Ask me for help if needed. I should be zooming around on a Honda... starting Thursday after 12 pm

    Purple Colored area marked CABINS. Behind these cabins is a large area good for all cars, trailers, and vehicles that don't need to be accessed during the Rally. It's a bit out there unless you're in the tent cabins. Please don't park in front of the cabins. This is for the cabin occupants. Also there is a driveway you can use out of this area to access the 190. Watch for vehicles coming quickly down the hill.
    Under the words RV DRY is an open area that we use for TEMPORARY PARKING for catering and Jimmy's demonstration. No overflow parking here please. If you study the map and camping assignments (post 6) you should be able to drive right into the spot you share with your new found friends.
    Just to the right (east) of the main driveway is a good overflow parking area for trailers and trucks. Again park at a diagonal facing northeast. Leave plenty of room for access to site 62 and trailer rigs to drive by. This is a large area if used properly.
    Our main overflow parking is under the words marked TENT CAMPING. Parking diagonal with the nose of your rig facing southwest works great here. In other words the rear end of trailers, cars, and trucks will face the meteor crater looking thingy. After that row is full we can start a second one.

    On the eastern edge of the resort across from sites 61 and 53 there is a lot of room if people park diagonal facing north and west ... Again to do this you might have to do a bit of backing in. Allow plenty of room in front for other rigs to get past. Cars parked here work well.


    Please don't park in RV space 11. I'm going to leave this open for whatever.

    TENT CABIN OCCUPANTS There is a lot of room around the cabins but I have found it is nice to park your truck in the CABINS overflow area and leave room for motorcycles, campfires, and new found friends in their own tents!

    EVERYONE, When putting your rigs in the sites try and be as efficient with space as possible. Start a conversation (used to be called a Private Message) here on ADV with your campmates to see what size rigs they are bringing. I don't have much of that kind of information.

    Thanks for your patience and Happy NooB's Rally to you !

    Pre-Rally Camp-n-Ride (Cancelled :waysad)

    Anyone interested in a 3~4 day camp-n-ride leading up to the Rally? :ear

    Maybe stage from PSR on the previous Sunday (3/26) and back at PSR by Thursday (3/30).
    Beginner to experienced routes, big or small bikes, convenient places to camp, minimal supplies required.

    Details to follow and certainly evolve :deal

    Let's ride :ricky

    I would really like to get people involved who have not yet tried travelling and camping off of their bike. I think there are plenty of folks who have trucked in to the Noob Rally year after year just for the day rides. This will be a great opportunity for you to take the next step.

    If you are interested, please PM me or post in this thread your experience level and what bike you would be on.

    01.27.17
    Sorry guys, but I gotta cancel this ride. My work schedule has changed and I will not be able to take the time off.
    If anybody still wants to do some Pre-Rally exploring, feel free to PM me for suggestions.
    I've got lots of tracks to share :deal

    We will have the repeater up to get coverage between Saline and Panamint Valleys again. Set your radio to 146.585 simplex with a PL/CTCSS tone of 100 Hz. This will let you hit the repeater when in range. You'll know you hit the repeater if it repeats your transmission back at you (yes, you'll hear how cool you sounded).

    Frequencies you should have:
    DVNR Repeater 146.585 Simplex, PL/CTCSS 100 Hz
    DVNP Report (9AM bcast) 170.10


    If you don't have a radio I recommend picking a cheap one up. You can get these two items on Amazon:
    BaoFeng UV-5R Dual Band Two Way Radio (Black)
    Nagoya NA-771 - Cheaper antenna but worlds better than the one the radio comes with.
    Diamond SRJ77CA Antenna - This is more expensive but a higher quality unit.

    That will get you able to hit the repeater. As these are in the amateur band the FCC won't let you use the radio for casual communication until you have your license however in an actual emergency those rules are waived. Plus, well, there's a whole lot of nothing out there, the only people likely to be monitoring those frequencies are us.

    If you don't know how to program your radio don't sweat it, hook up in camp and we'll figure it out and test it. I'll be out there with the white DR350 and a lifted red Jeep Cherokee.

    A couple of points about general radio use. You'll likely be hitting this repeater from a 4 or 5 watt handheld radio so you're challenged out of the box. Getting the best antenna you can helps out a lot but isn't a magic bullet. Don't expect it to work very well from a moving bike unless you have clear line of sight.

    If you need to get a message to the repeater stop, remove your helmet, and interact directly with the radio. Keep your antenna pointed vertically and try not to move it around as you talk. If you've hit the repeater you will hear your transmission repeated back to you, this not only lets you know that you successfully hit the repeater but it also shows you if your comment was clear.

    If you're having a tough time getting to the repeater consider putting your side stand down and walking up a nearby hill. With radios altitude is king. If you can see the general area of South Pass you should be able to hit the repeater.

    Rider Tips, Bike Set Up, Safe Riding

    1. Know your abilities and comfort level of riding. Death Valley has some of the most varied riding terrain from paved cruising to level 5 single track. Rocks and sand are part of just about every non-paved road/track in DV. Research the area, find the places you want to see, talk to other riders.

    2. Proper bike set up for riding DV is important. This is something that finds many first time riders in DV stranded or hurt for all the wrong reasons. The topic can be debated endlessly regarding do’s and don’ts. This is also a difficult topic due to the diversity of the types of bikes that are brought to the DV Noob Rally. If you are joining a ride with a designated ride leader and sweep, the leader and or sweep should check over your bike prior to the ride. If they are not comfortable with your set up, be prepared to not be part of their ride. Here are some pretty basic things to address:

    - Your bike is in good running condition, DV is the wrong place to bring a bike that may or may not get you back to camp.

    - Lay your bike on the ground and be sure you can pick it up on your own.

    - Tires in good condition; whether you are riding all pavement or the most difficult trails.

    - Know your bike’s fuel range; lots of long distances in DV with no gas stations. Lots of riders carry spare fuel on their bikes or tucked in a backpack.

    - Carry the appropriate tools to address potential problems on the trail. Most bikes have specific tool kits related to the bike … always have them. No need to bring the whole tool box from your garage or truck.

    - Tools part 2; carry tire irons and some kind of pump. Know how to fix a flat tire.

    - Make sure you have a spare tube with you on any ride in DV. Better yet, carry two. Even if you have tubeless tires, a plug is not going to help you if a rock slashes your side wall.

    - Lastly but maybe the most important; leave your panniers in camp. Everything noted above, fuel, tools, tubes can easily be carried in a back pack, tail bag or under the seat. There are only bad things that can happen when riding off road with “adventure” panniers.

    - One more thing … LEAVE THE PANNIERS IN CAMP! By the way, in camp, panniers make great ice chests.

    3. Safe riding is your biggest responsibility while in Death Valley. There are numerous examples of how the area got its famous name. Following the guidelines from the previous notes/points is a good start, however here are some basic safe riding points to consider:

    - Try to ride in a group and have a ride plan. If you are going to ride alone, make sure someone in camp is aware of where you are going and when you expect to be back.

    - Follow basic group ride etiquette; maintain safe distance between riders, stop at turns/forks/intersections and make sure rider behind you follows.

    - Always have water and snacks with you at all times.

    - Carry a basic first aid kit


    There are lots of very experienced riders who attend this event and can be very helpful to address all above points. Keep in mind there are lots of opinions and preferences to ALL, so gather the information and advice best suited to you. Enjoy your time in Death Valley and the comradery of the NOOBS Rally.


    Cheers

    Ok S.F. Bay Area n00bs, I'm going to use this post to keep all of the common info easily available for those riding down from the Bay (and some useful info for those caging it as well).

    So, if you are planning on riding down to PSR, go ahead and PM me. Let me know of any plans you are already considering, what city you are leaving from, when you plan to leave for PSR and anything else you think relevant. I'll start forwarding contact info and plans as I get them.

    PM me. Please don't reply to this thread as we don't need to clog it up with our planning.

    Looking forward to meeting you all at n00bs.

    ROUTE INFO UPDATE (as of 3/28):

    Hwy 50, open, expect delays due to lane closures.
    Hwy 88, open, expect it to be cold, wet and possibly slippery. Hwy 89 (Monitor Pass) is CLOSED so you'd have to go thru Gardnerville.
    Hwy 155, open from Delano to Lake Isabella.
    Hwy 178, open from Bakersfield to Inyokern. Construction delays in Bakersfield and in the canyon also.
    Hwy 58 (Tehachapi) is open.

    On the westside, Hwys 33, 41, 46, 198 and 25 are all open.
    7th Standard Rd is open.

    So, still lots of options. Hwy 88 to 395 will be the coldest of these routes.

    High Wind Watch for Thursday and Friday in most of the southern Sierra and Mojave routes. http://forecast.weather.gov/showsigwx.php?warnzone=NVZ014&warncounty=NVC023&firewxzone=NVZ462&local_place1=27 Miles NNW Mercury NV&product1=High+Wind+Watch&lat=36.9867&lon=-116.2092

    So ride/drive safe.
