I feel your pain, new chain, new Shorei battery (can these really be this light?) new oil and filter, new GL bags, new sprocket and a FRIGGIN stripped swingarm. Ugg, its gotta get better, eventually.

Took the wheel off tonight to swap the warped rotor with the good one off my street wheel but found that the previous owner of said wheels put them on with a buttload of torque. Messed up two bolt heads before I gave up (damn allen heads) and put my D607 street wheel back on, now I look all funny with a knobby on the rear and smoothie on front.

I'm sure teh warped rotor will be just fine for the event, I just don't want to commute on it. I'll fix the bolts at a later date (i.e. the next last possible second).

Next up is oil change and build a skidplate. Oh and buy beer / pack camping supplies.

This is a store-and-forward repeater, normally operates as simplex but I'm going duplex so you don't have to hear transmissions twice if you're close. Incoming transmissions are stored and then re-transmitted on full power when complete, as such a one second message takes a total of two seconds to get across the group.

I'll be in camp Wednesday if you want to program radios, if you don't know how to program your radio I suggest taking a cheat sheet with you so we can get you all hooked up.

If you happen to have a Yeasu VX-7R, FT-1900, or FT-8800 I can program the radio with my computer.

i will have my yaesu vx6r ht with me.

thanks geoff.

It'll be quite a bit warmer down in the valley.

And count on it being much cooler at elevation, especially if you're up there late.

That would be down in Furnace Creek... What the tourists think of as Death Valley.

I prefer the 30's and 60's

Gonna be real cold on top of Hunter at night, maybe in the 20's

I've found the weather forecast temps for Trona are usually very similar to PSR, the weather temps in Big Pine are pretty close to what you'll find up on Hunter.

Yep, I'll be there! I need to start packing, soon, like tonight.....

sorry to be a pain, but could you guys confirm that I can stay in the tent cabin Thursday night? If so, can I pay you for the extra night at the rally? thanks

General question.

How is the road up Hunter Mountain? Is it idiot-noob friendly? I'd like to go place the repeater with whoever trucks it there and wouldn't mind doing it on two wheels.

While I haven't been there for a few weeks but going up hunter is easy as long as it's dry, the newly washed out parts of Saline Valley Rd are past the turn off between Hunter and Lippencott going down in the valley. There's a very short section while climbing up before Hunter that's a little rocky, but isn't too bad.

Pretty sure Isaac was up there last week and said it was good, check the DV Snow and Road thread in Regional Forum.

Cool, sounds good then. Easy with some challenge is exactly what I need, I gotta get out of my comfort zone a little or I'll never stop being a noob.
