Good to see you back Andrew. Sorry we missed you at dove springs.

I might be down for some dvdaze. Anyone volunteering to haul luggage and firewood?

Thanks J P for translating for McKay. was a great time down in the desert Thanksgiving weekend. Weather was good, mid 50s during the day high 30s or so at night. Rain the week before kept the dust at bay and even mud in some places. No Verizon service, excellent AT & T though. Lets see if I can get some pics up.

Anyone else interested in DV Daze 14? Jan 31 thru Feb 3 2014 at Furnace Creek campground. I'm in, hopefully riding in from Ridgecrest on the single track & over the passes. absolutely fucking awesome ride!
Sounds like a great time. Should b able to work it into the schedule. What's the plan for camping out? Seems the link says spots r sold out already. I'll know for sure in a couple days.

Pissed Oh Crap!

Oh Crap!

I had to put in my 2014 vacation last October. I had to guess when DVDaze was going to happen. I guessed wrong! I now have the weekend before DVDaze off. Oh well, I will have to wait until Jan. 1 to see if I can still get it off on first come first served. I'm about 80% sure I can still get it off.

Perry, are you planning the same trip as last year? Is Jack going again? I want to ride in like I tried to do last year with you guys. Sounds like a good sized group of the locals going this year. Should be fun as usual.

There are plenty of spots it's just the ones in the back that all the riders reserve are taken. I sent Perry a PM to see if he's planning on doing it just like the last 2 years where we drive into ridgecrest, park at an ADVer's house & ride into DV. His brother Jack usually takes all our gear & drives to DV. Hopefully I'll hear back soon

I am hoping to make it as well. Definately riding in on the 950 if I do go. Wonder if I could talk the Mrs. into going 2 up :p

Unlikely for me December always ends up being the only month out of the year I cant ride at all.

Besides work, Shesaid and I will probably have some shopping to do. Wouldn't want to leave it until the last minute or anything.

I'm thinking that the last snow storm that hit low elevations hasn't melted off much yet. I'm still seeing snow on the banks of Bass lake in their webcam shots.

Maybe Big creek rd, Sycamore springs, Millflat/Davis Rds, back way to Delilah LO, just explore all those offshoots to the west, find sweet tacky dirt & have fun?

Sounds good to me. Haven't been to Delilah in a long while. I heard all the gates around millwood are already closed.

We can load up and head over to the coastal mountains or maybe even Cal City or something if you're feeling froggy and wanted to get an early, early start?? I've got the gas covered.
