Death Valley, 1/30 - 2/2?

Hey BAARCers,

Anyone who reads this thread going down to DV next weekend?

Guess this is the Death Valley Daze thread:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=939287

Think we're going to have ten guys in Furnace Creek starting Thursday ...
We're usually pretty easy to spot:
San Francisco MC flag/jerseys/patches ...

We're going to try to get into Saline Valley via South Pass and
camp at the warm springs on
Friday night, 1/31 ... Bicycle Phil and DaveRMS are going to
try South Pass on Thursday, so we should have some route intel ...
I hear larryboy sez the graders have been up on South Pass ...

Be fun to say "hi" to any fellow BAARCers!

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hey John,

I'm planning on that very ride on Thursday, except that night I'm staying at Panamint Springs to keep the road miles down on the bike. Wanna try to meet up at "x" time and ride up there? I'd like to get up Lippincott or Hunter and make it to Eureka Dunes as well.

Yeah, he didn't go into detail on that, but I didn't see any special pullers in his pictures either. You'll figure it out.

Laugh 2014 Death Valley Daze ...

Hey all,

Couple of us BAARCers managed to cross paths a couple
Of times at this season's Death Valley Daze rally ...



Here's a pic of longtallsally at the intersection of
Saline Valley Road and Lippencott Road on
Thursday morning, 1/30/14 ...



We snapped some pics and he was off chasing Bicycle Phil and DaveRMS
up Lippencott on his 450 KTM ...

I headed back to Saline Valley Warm Springs ...
Camped there Thursday and Friday and headed over
Steele Pass on Saturday to Furnace Creek ...



Making our way up the wash on the way to
Steele Pass ...



Found the Marble Bath ...



Eureka Dunes ...



Hung out around the campfire with LTS on Saturday night ...



Rolled through the Carrizo Plane on the way home ... found the
ridge above Selby Group Campground based on longtallsally's
recommendation ... I usually camp at Carrizo on the Hurricane Ridge
side, but WoodsChick and LTS convinced me to give the far side
of the plane a shot ...

Glad I did!

It was fun to hang out with a fellow BAARCer and about 100 of my
closest ADV buddies at Furnace Creek ...

Cary and I are planning to be at Mercey Hot Springs on
February 15th and 16th ...

hope to see a few of you BAARCers
around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hey John,

Cool pics! Dude, I feel a little red in the face not remembering meeting you at Alice's- must have been in my sprotbile days, which is to say when I was a tool.

Anyway, I'm really glad the Carrizo location worked out for you. Here are some shots from a recon trip and then the family trip a while later:















It was great hanging out around the campfire and chatting for a while.

Adventure nOOb

Hey all - I have been looking for a Bay Area riding group and found this thread. I live in San Francisco and am tired of riding solo. My schedule is relatively flexible - I'm into day, overnight, or multiday rides.

I'm not super fast but do really well at holding down the end of the pack or just going with the flow. I want to challenge myself without getting hurt (not too hurt anyways...).

I'm trying to get signed up for the Mendo Rally in the first week of May to meet some folks and would like to get some rides in before then.

shoot me an email/PM if anyone is interested.

Cheers,
Matt
