Death Valley invaded by Creeps?!

That's right! Creeps M/C is making their 2nd run to DV, the first was 2 yrs ago for DVDaze. This time we have decided to do our own run.
-3/22 early AM --> leave San Jose, CA & camp/hotel in the Bakersfield area
-3/23 early PM -->arrive in Furnace Creek CG
-3/24 AM --> south tour loop (details to follow)
-3/25 AM --> north tour loop (details to follow)
-3/26 early AM --> ride towards San Jose, CA; camp TBA
-3/27 early PM --> arrive back in the Bay Area

In the last month more people have been jumping on board, as we put out the open invite to join us. We are now making this invite more public!

What does this invite include?
-Join us around the campfire (site #143 @ Furnace Creek)
-Join us out on the trail
-Join us for the ride to DV or to the Bay Area

What does this not include?
-no Tshirt
-no maps
-no food
(list goes on!)

What do we expect from you?
-Provide your own gear, meals, gas, etc
-Make your own arrangements
-Pay your portion of the site fee, with whomever you arrange to share a site with
-Storys around the campfire
-be able to carry a minimum of 200miles worth of fuel!
-can handle 200+ miles in a day (day trips will be 160+/- miles of mixed dirt/highway between gas stops!)

Please, don't be dependent on others, without prior arrangements!

**This is not an organized event, in fact it's a disorganized ride!**
**We only got 1 site, it is full to capacity!**
There are 2 CGs in the Furnace Creek area, which are "1st come, 1st served", Sunset and Texas Springs, get someone there early to insure a site!

**The Lippencott route that I was originally thinking of taking was literally washed away in Nov/Dec 2012! People who ride the route on a yearly basis couldn't find it and only were able to run the route using GPS and small trail bikes (250-450cc)!
