so has anyone thought about doing a death valley trip? I've been checking out the government sight and they have a lot of great info on trails, camping locations, and hiking trails things to see.... Especially since spring is here and everything is getting ready to bloom i could imagine that it would be a pretty great trail and one that the family could enjoy. Anyone up for maybe making plans for MAY. this way we can plan it and have everyone try to save up money for the trip since gas is probably going to be pretty high! ouch for the first time i spent $90 in gas almost to fill up my 22 gal tank anyone know how to put a diesel in a 95 zj so i can run biofuel and brew it myself

I can't make this run in May due to I'll already be on the trails in Colorado & Moab....but....I HIGHLY recommend folks doing a Panamint Mts trip.

Goler Wash & Pleasent Canyon are excellent runs thru the Panamint Mts.

If you do Goler Wash, you can stay at Charlie Mansons old ranch house on Barker Ranch. I have stayed there a few times. Spooky, but fun!

Pleasent Canyon is a fantastic run! You will probably see wild burrows, deer, coyotes, squirrels, rabbits etc. VERY scenic!

I think it is closed again as of last week. They are digging all around there because apparently they've discovered another mass grave there. I'll look up the news article.

How many times do I have to tell you to bury the bodies away from the house?!?

Either one works for me. Steve and Jeff (I think) are in downtown (Gaslamp) but I think the Mission Valley one has a bit more parking.
