That's San Francisco to Death Valley. And back. I popped some TKC 80s on the GS to try those (my favorite tires to this point were Continental Trail Attacks). But it kept raining...then stopping for a few days...then raining again. Arrgh. I was gonna go spend Cmas in DV...rained. New Year's in DV...rained. These knobs are wearing down fast! I need to get out there! We finally had a few clear days last week and a good forecast. The Park Service page showed a few of the dirt roads finally opening up again (not Wildrose or Titus though) and I decided to roll before I had no knobs left to try out. I've been itchin' too long; time to scratch. Let's roll. It may take me a while to post these pix and vids. I'm lazy and there are a few; I tried to document the trip so others considering a ride out to Death Valley this time of year can get a good feel for the conditions. Lots of fog and damp streets at the crepuscular hour when I hit the start button. Here's the street in front of the house. Yuck, fog and overcast is kinda depressing. Let's hope it clears up further south.
