Cell Update

Cell Phone update!

I was just out there from the 10th thru the 14th at Furnace Creek. Both Verizon and AT&T cells work at the campground now. Any broadband usage is S_L_O_W but text and cell work fine.

Also they've "improved" the campground a bit. All the roads are paved and they've done some tree trimming in the tenting areas. 18 sites that mostly cater to the towables or Motorhomes now have water and sewer hookups. Electricity to follow (waiting on the Gubmint to set those fees).

The bad is some asshat decided the garbage and recycling bins are ONLY at the check-in Kisok. None are locate in the campground. "Suggestion Forms" are at the Kiosk. I'd suggest filling one out to try and get the bins spread throughout the grounds.

Have fun!

Excellent! Thanks, Gerg! A few years ago, the boss got freaked out when I couldn't check it, so this is good.

Since I'm planning on going in the Jeep this time, no worries, but good to know for the future...

That could be a good thing, help you stay on the throttle when you need too.

wide gravel road into the hills past the airport. if you're riding in, this is a must route to go. continue on over and up Goler and out West Side Road over to Furnace Creek CG.

This was my planned route on Thursday morning, but since Razr won't talk to me anymore because I'm on California Adventure Rider, I probably won't go.
