    This looks awesome! Is it happening this fall or again next spring? If so, is there a mailing list/newsletter I can subscribe to?

    Definitely an experience not to miss. A bunch of inmates ride/travel down from the Bay Area to DV n00bs each year. Fewer Bay Area folks make it down to Pahrump but some do make the trek. A good group of folks at both with a lot of overlap.

    Keep and eye out around the beginning of November for next year's sign ups to start. Keep a watch for DV n00bs.

    Cool, yeah I'm up in Sonoma. We took our big bikes down in February...but cheated and loaded the bikes in a toy hauler haha. With more time it could be an awesome 2-3 day ride each way there and back.

    You really need to hit both of these. There are soooo many trails and things to see in/around death valley, you can't get it all in from any one or two trips.

    Agreed, we hit it hard for 5 days and felt like we barely scratched the surface!
