Make Booty Your Favorite! A Death Valley Treasure Hunt with BigWan and LittleWan

Welcome!
Prepare yourself for hundreds of mediocre photos; outstanding dirt; some *slightly* (we hope) used porn; ADV amigurumi;
a sad amount of factual or otherwise useful information; fun linkies; and the same, lame, clapped out jokes from last time.
(Make stupid catchphrases your favorite!)



If you clicked over here by accident because you saw “Death Valley,” maybe this will entice you to come back...

Some of the places we hit (2up on a KTM 990):

Eureka Dunes
Ubehebe Crater
The Racetrack
Lippincott
Ballarat
Pleasant Canyon
Rogers Pass
Middle Park
South Park Canyon
Briggs Cabin
Titus Canyon
Swansea Grade
Salt Tram Summit Station
Cerro Gordo
Goler Wash (both directions)
Mengle Pass (both directions)
Geologist’s Cabin
Charcoal Kilns
The Goldfish Pond


Not only will we be searching for Death Valley treasures, but there will be chances for you, the reader, to find some DV booty of your own!
(no, I’m not talking about the brothels )


I’ve got 1700 photos to sift through, plus some crappy video to edit, so I need to get cracking...
Put on your comfy pants and I’ll see you back here tomorrow!

Edited to Add: We had so much fun, we did a follow up trip the next month...
...with a GoPro hero 2




Death Valley 2.0 starts here

Links to HD video:
Up South Park Canyon
Steep hill climb Rogers Pass
Steele Pass - Dedeckera Cyn - Eureka Dunes
Swansea Grade steps
rocky ledge road to Cerro Gordo
Sandy wash/ S5 through Lee Flat



LittleWan screwed with this post 05-02-2012 at 03:05 PM Reason: adding links for DV 2.0 + highlight trailer :)
