    Anyone who needs a tent for this event, please send me a PM.


    Wow, Kansas and for that we would like to offer you the best accommodation....unfortunately all the full hook ups are all taken.

    Dan, that's good to hear.

    We have a lot of fresh faces and new victims. I think these peeps will want to hear about your travels. Hope you have time in the evening to share your adventure. Will pick which date is good. Thanks.

    So far we have over 225 people on the IN list.
    71 have input their information into the SAR form.


    This is for everyone's protection in the event of an injury it gives us a means to
    • Contact people if needed
    • track you via the provided link if we don't already know it
    • coordinate any recovery etc and have it delivered safely back home if able
    So yes I am pimping this link and if you read this and know of others who have also signed up ping them to get their input done as well.

    thank you Dave for doing this for us.

    peeps, please sign up as early as possible.

    also want to make clear that this is purely a volunteer service. no one is getting paid nor make an assumption you're paying for it. any retrieval or attempt to get your vehicle will be at your cost.

    oOOOH, in! Tent site, 3 dinners. Plan is to ride down from central Contra Costa on Thursday, return Sunday or Monday. Meet up with others for the long haul? Possibly leave earlier in the week for Carrizo Plain visit.

    Tiger 800xc for easier offroad, Titus Cyn...?

    Hi Brian! Yes, Titus Canyon will be a great ride for your Tiger. I rode it on my Strom with street tires. It's pretty as can be.

    Just did it last weekend, simply the best condition I have ever seen it, totally packed in the bottom of the canyon, perfect for a scooter even.
    Ya know like the one @Sfcootz runs around on.

    Ride to Beatty, Rhyolite, Titus Cyn, Leadfield, Ubehebe, Teakettle, Racetrack, Lippincott.
    This will be my 4th time riding in DV and this time, I don't plan on missing some of the well known trails that I have yet to hit... so, I'm going to make a long azz, haul azz ride. PS to Beaty on tarmac (gas/grab samiches) to Titus, then Ubehebe Crater, Teakettle, Racetrack, Lippincott and back to PS. 240 miles from 14 ft to 6000 ft. Anyone is welcome to join, but parts of it may not be a nOOb with a big bike 'friendly' ride. I do make stops, but if you want to go with, plan on haulin azz (ie.. max legal speed limit) in between or we won't make it back to camp before night fall. Bail outs will be Scotty's Castle Rd... or we'll just shoot you and leave your dead carcass by your bike. What? you haven't heard of my "death march rides"?

    edit: Updated.

    KSU: 8:30 sharp
    Gas in Beaty, then 180 is miles back to camp. Plan accordingly
    Lunch: bring or buy in Beatty. Lunch stop will be around noon.. where ever we are.

    Hello and WELCOME to Noobs.
    Titus is beautiful!
    As always depends on the rider.
    RED05, (medic), rode his 800xc everywhere that anyone else went and fast!
    Salt Trams, Lippincott, Goler, Mengal, Pleasant Canyon/South Park with Chicken Rock and
    everywhere in between.

    Google: Death Valley Pleasant Canyon/South Park 4x4 jeep trip with Velocity!
    In a Jeep but you will get it. Don't look down.
    Again, depends on the rider.
    RED05 now rides a new 500 ktm and is an animal. So fast and technical.

    You will have a great time at Noobs as so many rides for any bike, any level of rider.
    Lots of great peeps and ride leaders that will show you the way to dirt bike adventure nirvana!!!

    C U there.

    This is a violation of nOObs policy! Please bring all deceased nOObs back to camp for inclusion in Saturdays BBQ, you know Joel has to stretch the dinner somehow...

    All healed up.. gonna take bigger rocks next time. Skull is too thick.

    I thought the BBQ smelled a little funny last year. That must be why most of you guys kept referring to nOObs as "fresh meat".

    sorry, we are not keeping a waiting list for full hook up RV, motel rooms, cabins and tent cabins. if someone bails out, be quick and grab it. first to claim it by posting (time stamped) and makes prompt payment - gets it.

    id run this loop backwards. that way you're not running into the end of the day sun over the mountain pass. plus lippencott going up can be a motherfucker if traffic is coming down.
