    Red Rock Canyon camping area. Other than a few folks stopping by the visitor center in the late morning, I had the entire area to myself the remainder of the day and night! Fantastic!

    While attending the Death Valley DAZE event nearly two years ago I met a guy at the Furnace Creek gas station who had a brand new Tiger and he wanted to try riding it on dirt but he didn't want to ride alone. So I invited him to join me on a ride across the scenic Green Water Valley road, 30+ miles long. We also visited the China Date farm, which is a pretty cool oasis.

    This was my campsite near Furnace Creek during Death Valley DAZE. I met a super cool elderly man in British Columbia while riding my bike down to the Lower 48 and we became friends. He rode from California to D.V. just to buy me dinner. He was the 10th person to ride a huge amount of miles on a BMW, maybe 1,000,000 miles? I can't remember, but he had led a very adventurous life. He was one of those incredible people whom you feel honored to have met and stay in touch with. He rode tens of thousands of miles every year and unfortunately died this past year, while out on his BMW. RIP Harry. Boohoo.
