Just paid up, really looking forward to this. Any chance I can reserve either 53 or 61.
Thanks a lot.

Mine you can ride through?

I seem to remember reading once that there's a mine that goes through a mountain somewhere in Death Valley that you can ride a motorcycle through - from one side to the other. I can't find any info on Google, probably because I don't know the name of the mine.

Anyway, I obviously couldn't lead the ride because I have no idea where said mine is (if it in fact exists). But, I'd be willing to ride sweep on my little bike (XRR) if someone who knows the route is willing to lead. Since I'm committed to GS rides on Fri & Sat, a Sunday ride would work best for me.

Anyone have any info?

#61 it is but we need to assign at least one more camper with you. You can have a buddy of yours or a blind date.

Well, it might be smart to reduce the Hunter Mountain ride by one but I don't want to cut anyone out. Any firm leader commitments for Group 2? With 200 PPs it shouldn't be difficult to fill.

Three things, first I was going to donate a copy of Adobe Premier Pro, but I think that got missed in the list?

Second, I added two rides I'm willing to lead. One is the Chloride-Titus thing, but Friday instead of Saturday. The second is Darwin on Sunday morning. If they don't get much interest, I might cancel them, but I'll talk to anyone who is interested before doing that. PM me if you sign up, so I can get to know you before hand?

Also, I'll be camped with Seth (lifeofreilly) and the Adobe crew in RV spot #2. Come by to chat in person once we're there.

Last, I will be riding in, the plan as of now is to do an IBA style blast on Wednesday. My route is Bellingham WA to PSR via I-5, 97, and 395. It will be my first IBA ride, so if you want to give me pointers, feel free. That route is simply what Mr.Goog says is shortest, I'm not sure if the linking route between I-5 and 395 is IBA friendly, or if it has too much traffic.

Anyway.... see you there!




thanks aaron and added your donation on page 1. hope who ever wins it shoots vids and likes to do a RR.

wish you well on doing the IBA, ride safe and enjoy the ride.

the chloride cliffs route is one of the best. don't know why peeps are not that interested. i do that every year, with a lunch stop in beatty, then head down to leadfield and titus canyon with a quick stop to check out the petroglyps.

folks, here's a list of the best attractions in dv.

You might be thinking of the Reward Mine near Independence. You can drive or ride into it, but not through it. It's not in DVNP.

In the El Paso Mountains there is the Burro Schmidt tunnel that you can hike all the way through.

I'm sure you already have it Joel, payment sent yesterday. Bizz should have her payment in shortly.

Just so everyone knows I'll be out there for the week, probably arriving Monday night. I have a few banditio's that will be trailing us, about 5-8 other peeps. If you want to come early make your own camp arrangements, coordinate with Joel, but book directly with Paniment Springs. Come by and say hello!
