    Fuck me runnin'. Day late and a dollar short this whole month. First, I miss the MC auction and flat track races, now this! I don't know where my head's been. Oh, wait. The GF was in from NYC.

    Maybe next year. I'll have to do a solo trip this weekend. I haven't missed DVD's since I moved here in 2002.

    I thought Trona-Wildrose was closed :scratch

    Edit: Looked at the Google Map, I see the southern end of Panamint Road is also Trona-Wildrose...

    Thanks

    PS Razr and L2R, saw your guys bikes when I was leaving Saturday morning at 9.30, still sitting outside the camper? You guys day sleepers or what?

    Thanks luv2race and Razr for the great rides
    Death Valley was just what I needed and what happens in Nev. stays
    in Nev. I did see a flying KLR ... maybe I should drink less

    It's to bad the ADV Daze has fallen apart... I missed seeing the crew
    maybe next year the group can put their man pant's on and come out
