Beware the nOObs of March (a sure to be epic weekend in Death Valley)

Well, I've been tasked to start the ride report for this year's Death Valley March Madness nOObs Ride; and since I'm not coming home until Monday night I figure I better get it started before I go so the other nOObs know where to post.

If you are a reader and waiting for the good stuff, just be patient. Some folks hit the road today and there's a bunch more heading out tomorrow. Since there's wifi at Panamint Springs Resort there may be some reports coming in from onsite over the next couple of days.

In the meantime here's a few threads from the past:

2009 march nOOb RR...http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=443131
2008 march nOOb RR...http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...h+Death+Valley
2nd nOOb ride november 2008 RR...http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=405257
1ST nOOb december ride 2007 RR...http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...86#post5855186

And let me be the first to thank Joel (h8chains) for once again herding this bunch of nOObs and not-so-nOObs into participating in what is sure to be a great weekend. You can see his efforts here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=524140

On the road tomorrow AM. Camp and beer tomorrow afternoon.

Short on time, but I'll throw out the slide show for starters.
Looks like I've got some dust in the camera.

Here's a video of my sad little attempt to go up Lippincott. Didn't make it (just like the Mustang that's stuck halfway up; wtf?). But I had a great time and by Sunday, I think I probably could have done it, thanks to all the great advice I got from everyone on the weekend. More pictures to come!
