Re: No Name Nub 2nd Fun Filled Fail

We went up the chute seen in the center of your photo from Borax Benchmark, so on the southwest side of the bump. I'm sorry I don't have a trip report on that hike; it was many years ago, and I recall I didn't take many photos since I was more focused on climbing. It's mostly a steep boulder-filled ...

Re: Lower King Midas & over north ridge into Keane Wonder

I hiked to the King Midas mine in early February 2019. The switchbacks on the south side were in good shape with only one very small washout. The trail after the switchbacks was in very good condition and obvious to follow. However, when it got onto hard rock, it disappeared. I looked around and as...

Re: Strange music on 89.9 FM Driving east from Lone Pine to Death Valley

When I lived in Ridgecrest, the trunk lid often would pop open and the car’s alarm would go off on my ‘92 Cadillac for no apparent reason. Always in Ridgecrest, but never anywhere else. The dealer could never figure it out. We concluded the base would occasionally pulse some sort of radio wave that...

Great video! The best part, in my humble opinion, is the two friendly canines :)

Re: Can't access new PM's

I'm having the same issue, and what worked for me was to delete all my PMs, then the new one will load. It appears one PM fills up the inbox (1 PM = 100% full). And my sent box only contains the most recent PM, the others have disappeared.

Re: What is my Jeep's Capability?

Remember the feature I kept calling Devonian Spine Canyon? I went up there just before I left the first time, I was only able to go a mile or so into it. No slots but very very beautiful. This winter im planning for a multi day hike to explore the northern round valley a bit more. I think I see som...

Re: What is my Jeep's Capability?

Hey Chris,

Good to hear you're heading back to DV! We always enjoyed talking with you when you worked at SPW.

For the deep sand, maybe consider Maxtrax or a similar product? We haven't had an opportunity to use them ourselves, but I've heard great reviews.

Re: A jet crashes in the DV area, several onlookers injured

Thank you for posting this. Unsurprisingly, it was in the Father Crowley Point area. A google search turned up these two articles: https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-07-31/u-s-navy-f-a-185e-jet-crashes-near-china-lake https://abc7.com/navy-f-a-18e-fighter-jet-crashes-in-inyo-county/543304...

Re: Stovepipe Wells to Racetrack Playa (via Marble Canyon) - Feb. 22-26

I'd like to mention that I'm very happy that folks are using my reports to help plan their trips, and let me know if there are any questions about what I've written. I haven't been able to visit DV for 18 months now (since I've been helping to take care of my father, who has a neurological disabilit...

Re: Three trips worth of finds

Very nice!! I initially thought I knew where the big circle of rocks might be, but given your hint that these photos are of a location reached after a 9 mile hike I think my guess is likely not correct. I've encountered a few of those (rock alignments?) when I haven't been looking for them, in vario...
