    This rates as one my all time favorite rides and I'm seriously bummed I can't make it. Riding in DV is a fantastic experience particularily with such a great crew... Riding with tbarstow bigtodd and the rest of the gang through cliff canyons,..what a blast, camping out with surferbum and his mate (I'm so bad with names!) it really doesn't get much better. And the machines, a bit of everything...including some seriously farkled rides like macadamias xchallenge....

    Just a reminder to carry a spot and cell!! I badly broke my femur riding solo up a mountain last summer and it was my spot or iPhone that likely saved my life. As a public service message to carry a spot and cell :) i posted the video I recorded while lying in the ditch, it of course is now a youtube sensation so give a thumbs up if you think a spot and cell is a good idea! http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qgJqZ1TaZ5w&desktop_uri=/watch?v=qgJqZ1TaZ5w

    Count me in for DVNR 2014! Enjoy the rides!

    #178 John- I've got a reservation for a tent spot on Weds but they didn't tell me online what site #. I'll try to find out tomorrow so hopefully you can keep me in the same location when you assign tent sites.

    Just a thought.......Somebody need to tell PSR to GET MORE DUPSTERS! Last year they filled up quick. Also they may want some portapotties or the suck-truck needs come more often......anybody remember that mess!

    Just a thought.

    Hey Joel,
    A little slow on the trigger this year. Really enjoyed last years ride; great people, food, rides.

    Since it appears that the list is full, allow me to volunteer to be first on the standby list in the event of cancellations. Assuming that there will be some, the following applies:

    Bob/CalGSer BMW G650 XChallenge/TFSS/3 nights meals, out on Sunday


    Hey to BigToad, sorry to hear about your femur....that was a close one!

    Best to all!

    We are arriving on Wednesday and made a campsite reservation but don't know what site yet. I'll call Panamint Springs tomorrow to get a specific site which I'll post here. It would be great if we could keep that site through Sunday :-).

    'High winds' piqued my wife's interest - are there by any chance tent cabins left for the event? Thanks.

    Right now there are only 2 tent cabins up... Joel said they would be reserved for the ladies :wink: He also said the resort may be putting more up, but we will have to see...

    I've been going to DV for over 7 years 3 times a year and can only remember wind being a problem 2 times. It's possible but not much to worry about.

    hi kurt and martha, thanks for the donation and for coming to this event. your this year's selkirk ride is featured in the nov. advmoto magazine. saw that too in the ride report. we missed out on that one, but we'll keep an eye next year. will bring the socal contingent.

    right now, you're on the waiting list on the rv full hook up. if someone bails out or no-pay, it's yours.

    i am grateful to martha for the repair of my 950 skid plate. exceptional service, likewise it was free, including shipping.

    there's a big 950se parade lead by nowwhat, you may want to join them. bring your klim gear too....:D

    jon, looking forward riding with you again.

    Looks like I missed the boat here. If you could throw me down as an alternate I'm in for the whole deal. I'd most likely ride up on my DR650, but maybe truck it.
    Thanks
