Day 2 continued

As we rolled out of Baker, I was laughing at how lucky we had been. We were way ahead of our plan, the riding had been pretty easy on the big bikes and now we're heading for Death Valley and a rough idea of going to Furnace Creek and bumming a camp site.

We jumped on Harry Wade and really started hauling ass. This was the first time we had any dust issues on the trip. We just kept a good distance between us and opened up the big bikes.

The road is much narrower from recent storms and sand than last Feb when I rode it. Check out all the grader cuts along the side.

When we hit the pavement, it was just passing the "golden hour" of light

The sun heading for the Pacific

We made a quick stop at Badwater, first time for me.

We rolled into Furnace Creek CG in the dark and found a nice spot in the back. We had a nice fire and watched a parade of cars and people walking, going out to the airport. No idea what was going on out there. We enjoyed a liquid dinner and jumped into out tents.

Life is an adventure that requires the correct equipment

SPOT - bigtodd - where I at now?
