Possible Escape Plan

There was a nice article about Death Valley National Park in the November 2007 issue of Sunset magazine...all 3.3 million acres of mountain and desert.
Badwater Basin, Zabriskie Point, Scotty's Castle, Artist's Palette, Furnace Creek Inn etc. all not far from Goin's Panamint Springs.

Emigrant Campground sites are tent only but it looks like all the rest are open and all but Furnace Creek are first come first serve. Most have dump stations and water (and toilets) and generators are okay (7am to 7pm).

Check out the website. I think it's a keeper.
Anyone wanna give it a whirl?
Raise your hand...

Death Valley is a great place and I'll go even though its full of people. The Panamint Valley next door though has no people. Hmmm.

Mr. Goinalloverthedesert,

Please elaborate about the Panamint Valley.

Any towns? Campgrounds? Services? Alien sightings?

There might be alien sightings, make sure you bring lots of aluminum foil!

Any towns? One only, Trona. Average cost of a home is 29,000.00

Campgrounds? Wherever you camp is a campground.

Services? Nope.

Alien sightings? Yes often along with fighter jets practicing.

Law enforcement? Not hardly. So bail money is not required.
Just sayin. Rudy

How far are the National Park sights from where one might boondock?

Could we park it somewhere in the boonies and do day trips?

It sounds quite intriguing...

Hmmm. I guess two separate trips.

Which is good.

Two is better than one.

Put 'em on the calendar and we'll round up the 'streams...

Being the desert we should go in the Panamint in Spring and Death Valley late fall into early winter.

DV is warmer than the Panamint so we could get the best weather.

Then again what do I know?

Just wondering...
