Thanks. Yes, there were some good moments. I camped with a good friend and we saw beautiful sights. The weather was fantastic.

Re: Vultures Buzz Death Valley Airport

Nice. Any idea what they feed on? I will have to look that up.

Re: Oasis construction update Oct 3rd

The store is open and it's located farther back than before, not near the front where they are still working on a restaurant. Had to ask where it was. I paid $5.00 bucks for a bag of ice. It worked for a while but broke down. I brought my bag of water in for a refund but they rebuffed me. :biggrin:

Re: Late october

It was beautiful but my mind was occupied. Divorce final last week and I signed the papers for a mortgage on a house that was paid for so she could get her half. Regardless, I already want to go back. Glad I'm not the only one. After my buddy left I looked at my lonely truck in the campground and wa...

Re: Vultures Buzz Death Valley Airport

What a fun ride.

I had a similar experience when a hummingbird showed up in the middle of DV wash down near Ibex Spring. It seemed like an odd place but there must have been a food source somewhere nearby.

Re: Vultures Buzz Death Valley Airport

Vultures sure get a bad rap. I like seeing them do their thing, whether it's soaring, picking at a carcass, or hanging at the airport.

Re: Late october

Thanks guys. I'm looking forward to a nice refuge from the personal difficulties. If it works out the divorce will be final in time for our trip to Divorce Valley N.P. I like the Panamint Campgrounds, too, as campgrounds go. I'm looking at some moderate hikes like Perdido Canyon. Maybe Titanothere u...

Late october

I will be there with a buddy from California 3-4 days at the end of October. I haven't done much planning as I am in the middle of a divorce. It will be me first visit since April. We may just camp at Mesquite and maybe I can convince him to do some displaced camping away from the crowds. Looking fo...
