Shoot, sounds like fun to me. Of course, someone will have to come up with a catchy name for it so we can get t-shirts made. :wink:

Might be up to that...

I'm up for a camping outing, where do you plan to stay? Campground or Rough Camping? Let's put something together so plans can be made accordingly...

I've camped there many times during that weekend. You're right Chef, it's cold at night, but great during the day.

There are Motels near by, but I don't know what they are 'cause I'm cheap. My plan, for the moment, is to stay at a campground.

I'll post more after I get some more info.

Figures... the way my luck has been going.... I just made reservations yesterday at a campground just outside the west exit on Hwy 190 for the weekend of March 16/17. (Panamint Springs.... $15 a night includes hot showers and the other creature comforts that keeps camping relaxing) If I had checked in here yesterday I would have moved things forward a month just for the chance to meet you guys (and to check in with oldguy again).

Oh well.

If you are camping in the Valley itself be ready for high winds. They are constant (and annoying). Any campsite cooking is usually seasoned with sand.

Camped at Furnace Creek in Dec 04. Low thirties in the AM! :lol:

Walked right in with no reservations. Got a site at southern end of campground and was able to walk to the restaurant. Great fun and beer too! :lol:

Doug,
Are you thinking about Stovepipe, Furnace Creek, or somewhere else so far as camping goes?

For those who ain't from around here, Death Valley averages 72 degree highs and 46 degree lows (F) and can vary as much as 20 degrees either way during Feb.

Cheers,
Scott

Sorry Doug, you were doing the invites. Just surprised there weren't more takers. I'm in for sure. Tim
