This might be handy..
anyone who has a color plotter 11 x 17 this will make a very good handy map.
the ranger stations also have good backcountry maps. when you stop to pay the park fee, grab a copy. you could also use the vending machine to pay.
since i like going to the national parks, i got myself an annual fee for $80. passenger gets in free, or in some places another motorcyclist.
to encourage everyone to pay the park fee, we will have a special raffle and if your name is called, you have to show your park fee stub or annual pass.
Thanks again for getting Zach and I in. Looking forward to the ride.
What are the chances of a guest from Idaho in small Toyota truck with xt225 joining us?
Can even share my tent if need be. No, not that there is anything wrong with it.
If wanted to stay Wed night would that be through you or PSR?
Sorry for the questions as I know you're busy,
Tom Harrison maps is pretty much universally accepted as a great resource for outdoor maps. Very detailed, printed on tyvek so they're waterproof, and not too expensive: http://www.tomharrisonmaps.com
Go to the order page and scroll down for 'Death Valley'.
At least you can discern the names of the variouls attractions and points of interest.
it should be no problem. send a PM to ersin (fyyff) with the codes and other details he can provide.
a small donation to Rider Down Foundation will be included in the fee for late registrants.
EDITED: THE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED, WE WILL HAVE ROOM FOR LATE REGISTRANTS ONLY WHEN SOMEONE BAILS OUT.
mikebrat bailed out, so idaho rider is IN (pending payments).
Thanks Joel for the awsome video!!
I didn't sign up for this event.
FYYFF, can I ride with you on the DV DOODs ride again?
Have to get in on this another date. Have fun!
you know you want to ride....
death valley is the place to ride this winter and spring.
FYI for anybody else who loves their old (cheap) GPS as much as I do I'm working on truncating all the waypoint names down to eight characters. I'll share the work for anybody who needs.
Also since I'll have the Jeep I will have my navigation laptop with me, it's a pretty simple setup but if you want to dump / load waypoints stop by, you'll need the cable for your GPS.
Amazing what I can accomplish while babysitting furniture installers.
A note on comms...
It is confirmed that I will be supplying a simplex repeater for the event. It's not the most elegant device but should help in keeping the groups in contact.
For the support folks in camp I'd suggest getting your technician class license if you don't already have one. Go to www.qrz.com and take the practice tests until you pass consistently. There is still time to do this!
For those in cars
A budget 65W radio can be found here
If you get this one I can help you program it in camp.
Handheld is what you want. Personally I'd get a dual band radio.
This cheap Chicom radio seems to be decent for a throw-away price, I'd get an antenna like this though.
For more you can get a reputable brand like this. You'll still want an antenna like this though (note this is a different antenna than the last radio).
Car folks can use the handhelds too. If we're able to place the repeater in a good spot 5W should do it, if you think you'll be doing support often though I'd consider a full power radio.
If anybody has any questions feel free to ask. I may not know the answers as I'm not really all that heavy into the radio thing, I just use them a lot in the backcountry.
I have one of these lying around... will this work?
