Thanks outlaws...it's an easy to place to photograph, so many amazing views. If I stopped every time I wanted to take a picture I never would've got anywhere.


More to come...on lunch break now

Good stuff. Thanks for taking us along with the great pics. Took my road bike through Wild-rose a couple years back (in Aug... never again) and large swaths of pavement were washed away. Better now? Only been to D. V. twice with just time to pass through. Reading reports like yours make me sad. So much to see. I want. Really no excuse for not making the time as my sister lives and works in Furnace Creek. Any of you inmates bump into her, tell her Brother says, "Hi, Trudy."

Thanks for asking
Now 6 months since the surgery, I have regained a respectable amount of motion and strength. The shoulder will never be the same, but it is already way WAY better than the possible worst case scenarios. I'm riding the Continental Divide Trail this summer soooooo that ain't too bad!

I'll be watching for more Californication.

from viewing the highest point in the lower 48, Mount Whitney, to 100 miles away I can stand in the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere is pretty damn impressive to me

Furnace Creek, an oasis in the barron wonderland of death Where you can get a Death Valley Coozy and a load of libations to fill it if you are willing to pay the price


me? I just need some fuel and a water break


normally I wouldn't pay it, but it does have Techron, so...it's a pretty sweet deal

so, fueled up and looked around for a bit at the museum piece around the resort





found this for my friend, AWM, it's all he ever talks about?! trains, train, trains or as he says "Choo Choos" it's kinda weird, but whatever the dudes alright
