You have already gotten some good advice. Be sure to read all of Larryboy's ride reports on Death Valley. It will take some time but it is well worth it. I have a few reports on Death Valley as well.
The Tom Harrison Map is very good. I also plan all my DV rides with Garmin's Map Source GPS software and then load my routes into my Garmin Zumo 550. Creating routes before I leave have made my rides to DV very enjoyable.
If you have any questions, post them here and you will get lots of helpful advice from the inmates on advrider who have spent many days in DV.
