nice pics tim. what a transformation. last march, we hardly saw any big rock.

folks,you don't have to be an advanced rider, just some skills - you can do it. the ride to goler, barker ranch, mengle, butte valley, the cabins, etc. is worth doing.

even i can do it.....

I've been eying this gathering since I first got on ADV, now I'm within driving distance.

PS: My name is Patrick.

Thats funny. Ive been eyeing it as well, and Ive been within day ride distance of DV for 21 years and have never been there.

Doesnt look like Ill make this gathering either. Filling up fast, and just too far out to plan ahead like that. Oh well, maybe the next one.

There is something in Death Valley for every rider at any level, plus we haven't left a Noob unaccounted for yet. You'll see plenty of pics and videos of the carnage at various places, but we do get most of the riders through stuff without incident so don't let that scare you off.

Please do learn how to fix a flat tire on your bike BEFORE you go to Death Valley. Every year somebody heads out and gets a flat, and doesn't have the tools, supplies, or the first idea on how to change a tube. Don't think it won't happen to you, I had a flat yesterday and my hand pump was giving me trouble and a jeeper helped me out with a shot of air from a compressor. Time to get a backup pump.

I'll be at the resort from the 22nd to the 28th of March, sorry I'm going to miss the later festivities. I can't stay past Thursday morning as my wife has to be back at work the following Monday. If there are any other early arrivals, please feel free to visit my RV(23' Fleetwood jamboree and black dr650) and we'll ride somewhere.

We had breakfast at the Deer Lodge a couple of years back. 5 years ago we were making fudge with eatpasta .... oops, I meant toffee .......


Joel, I presume I just pay the campground directly? When do they need it by?

Thanks

Lets ride somewhere. Titus, Racetrack & Hunter (if open), maybe Saline Valley (there may be some sand)......

Sounds good to me, my dr should have no problems in sand, has got good pirelli mt21 tires. Big gas tank, so range isn't a problem. I am a noob( at DV, not to dirt biking), so I'll research those rides but I'd really like to just follow someone who knows them. I'm gps challenged......

Browneye and Crew

Joel,
Bringing the RV with Sher and Nick, so 3 of us. We'll be there Wed to Sun if possible, so we'll be in for meals. Can help out with that too. Need a RV spot, no hookups ok.

Thanks!!

Myself and 3 buddies are in, looking for dry camping for two pickups and a couple tents we don't need or want anything fancy.

Myself John on a Stupid Enduro and 3 KLR's.

Looking forward to the first trip to DV.

riders from bc...

it will be a pleasure for us to host riders from far places. we'll leave the lights on for you.

people who have not been to PSR, it's not your typical resort.....it's dirt! but of course in the desert, a place like this with a gas station is HEAVEN....

Just two from BC, the rest are Albertans but don't hold that against them! Dirt is preferred, as long as there's beer, gasoline, and some water we'll be golden. There's at least one other I saw posted on here from BC too, might be an invasion.

Sorry, the others are Duane, Mike, and Matt the losers aren't on ADV so no user names.
