    I'm not sure if they built more since noobs 2017 - the ones that were there in 17' were quite nice - reminded me a little of the cabins in Shell.

    I think there are more, and they were planning for even more. I don’t know the current status

    There is that little "speed bump" of Towne Pass at 4956 feet that can send a chill down your spine:vardy in some years that we have ahem, weather.

    They started straightening out some of the twisties last season :(, anyone know how that is going?

    Looks like Dante's View road is back open? Pretty epic road climb. in 15' or 16' (before the washout) I went up through Trona at dusk on the bike (a Feb) - no moon and dark as hell. Next year I did it in the truck and the washout to gravel transition by the Ballarat turnoff caught me by surprise - no issue in the truck but at night on the bike at speed could have been a real problem. Note to self - check road conditions and be really really careful. That's a lonely road to have an oooops on at night.

    Me thinks you were kinda lost....Wildrose maybe? Ballarat is in Panamint Valley. You need to go two valleys east to Greenwater Valley for Dante’s View...

    No, mixed topics - I moved from Dante’s road condition to ride into Panamints. Two separate subjects. I should have been moAr clear. Yes Dante’s way over from panamints not same subject.

    Need a huge favor from inmate.
    I want to attend the rallye and will be shipping my bike to Death valley or surrounding.

    Need someone to provide an address for Haulbikes to pickup and deliver the motorcycle.

    Dont mind paying for favor in cash, favorite liquor bottle or any other way.

    Thank you gentlemen.
