Right there with you... Have all the time off to go, yet nothing is ready Now it will be spent getting things ready rather than camping and playing.So friggin bummed out I don't know what to do with myself...
I am loaded and ready to leave tomorrow. I'll let you know and maybe we can meet somewhere on the east side of DV..... maybe Zabriske Point.It's only about a 3 hour drive for me so I'll head that way some time late thurs am pending your arrival time Brian. Keep me posted via text and I'll plan my travels accordingly. Sooooo looking forward to a couple days off the grid!! See y'all soon.
You are very welcome Jen! Thanks to all who attended. We need to get out there again and spend more time exploring some of the more remote area's of the park. If we can plan out a week long trip next time, we should be able to take a rest day in the middle at one of the camp spots and do some hiking.Brian and Tom, thank you so very much for all of the effort you both put in to making this a wonderful trip. I had a really great time. My parents did as well. All of us agreed that it was too bad we couldn't have stayed in the area longer and we want to come back again sometime.
Guess I should start shopping for a new tent before the Hollister trip. :teary:
I did not but Tom did and I am sure he has sent them to the park rangers by now. There was a ranger in the Panamint Springs store when he was checking in and he showed them to him out in the parking lot. The ranger was sure they would prosecute the guy as they don't take that kind of stuff lightly.Hey Brian did you get any pictures of that guy on the motorcycle at Badwater?
Yes, I sent the park ranger the pictures and a statement. He indicated that they have received quite a bit of vandalism in the last two years. The racetrack has been driven on 3 times, a pupfish at the Devil's Hole was killed by a couple of drunken trespassers (a big deal when less than 200 exist) and some idiot tried to drive off the road at badwater, but got stuck. He encouraged the reporting of all bad behavior.I did not but Tom did and I am sure he has sent them to the park rangers by now.

For the rest of you.... to explain what Joe is asking about - A guy rode his BMW motorcycle up on the sidewalk and down onto the boardwalk at Badwater to take pictures in front of the sign. Tom and I chewed him out real good and Tom got shots of his license plate, the bike and the guy. I hope he forfeits the bike just like the idiot who drove on the racetrack....
My saying still holds true - 'Idiots are EVERYWHERE!'.
