Available fuel stops in or near Death Valley

Just to confirm, there is fuel available 24/7, payable by credit card, at the following locations:

Lone Pine
Olancha
Panamint Springs
Trona
Stovepipe Wells (87 octane only)
Beatty
Furnace Creek
Shoshone

Do any of these locations have services available in the event of a break down or needed repairs such as towing? Should we have a means of contacting Shoshone and Panamint Springs to confirm they are operating?

Thanks

P.S. I thought to PM you but that was not possible

OLANCHA TO PANAMINT SPRINGS: 46 MILES
PANAMINT SPRINGS TO TRONA: 48 MILES
PANAMINT SPRINGS TO STOVEPIPE WELLS: 31 MILES
STOVEPIPE WELLS TO BEATTY: 34 MILES
STOVEPIPE WELLS TO FURNACE CREEK: 24 MILES
PANAMINT SPRINGS TO TRONA: 48 MILES

Also Lone Pine and Shoshone has fuel. Lots of people ride over North Pass and out to Lone Pine to refuel.

Stovepipe ONLY HAS 87 octane.

I think all of these try to have 24 hours with cards. Carry cash for payment to other inmates with supertanker bikes.

Beware, the power has gone out (no fuel) at Shoshone before. Same is possible at Panamint Springs since they run only on generator power.


Regarding Ham's

My friends Tony and Don in RV spaces 10 and 11 are experienced Hams and can help with that set up... I have no experience.
