"I'm dreaming of a warm Christmas"

Come down to my place, we usually have beaudacious weather. Everywhere else is freezing and the Rose Parade has blue skies and fab temps....or not!

Cool

So lets make the plan layout final.
Meet point Snow Mountain Smoke Shop 7am and stands up and roll 7:15am.
https://www.lvpaiutesmokeshop.com/snowmountain.html
There is fuel at the meet point.
We will do a top off fuel and restroom at Lathrop Wells.
Breakfast stop at Longstreet Casino in Amargosa.
Picture stop at Death Valley junction in front of the Opera House.
Next stop is Dante's View.
Then on to Artist Pallette Drive and over to Bad Water.
For those wanting a shorter day the ride is officially over at this point.
If you chose to hang in longer I will be returning to the Death Valley Visitors Center.
I would in the past stop off at the Store for a drink and snack but it has been plowed for new construction.
From the Visitors Center my plans are still open.
Several options for those wanting different lengths of the distance and time where you can fall out and return to Vegas.
Those who dont mind riding back in the dark stick with me.
Then I will decide the ride based on if we have any cruisers in the remaining group.
All Adventure type bikes and we will run a route showed to me 2 weeks ago.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Mike

Nat'l weather service suggests mid 60's for Furnace creek as a high. Low 40's at sun rise.
