... it was a great addition to my collection of movies that were filmed in places I have been to out in the desert. Another interesting movie filmed around DV is "Delusion." Can't recall the stars name, one of the actors plays on Law & Order as one of the detectives. It's sort of a strange movie, f...

Keeping Historic Places Secret

I'm not really sure of the best course. Maybe there isn't one. Individual sites have unique requirements to keep them intact. The quandry: Keep these places secret? Or tell others about them? I've seen it both ways. I've seen secret places get trashed, I've seen places that people frequent not get t...

This String

This string of posts has been very interesting. And I'm glad it has not dropped to finger pointing or torn between party lines (well, except Puglsy's post ...). Great stuff, friends! :-D

SUV Owner/Operators - Supporting Terrorism or Arab Oil?

This might open a can of worms, and this isn't meant to be so. This topic has been in the media lately and seems to be heating up. Since I'm sure most, if not all of us, are SUV and 4x4 owners, I thought this subject might be appropriate material for discussion. This morning, on the Today show, Matt...

Big Bell to Chloride City

A buddy of mine did it once. He went down a cable tramway to the mine and hiked back out. Some excerpts from several emails he sent me on the subject: "We parked at Chloride City in front of the cabin that has the grave nearby. "Using a printout from topozone.com (ref. Chloride City) ... Now I figur...

Spell Checker?

I love this forum format. I am happy about the preview option before posting. Often, with other boards, how often do we type like mad before our web browser kicks us off-line (most time out after 20 minutes or so of "inactivity" - i.e. not changing pages) and we don't say what we wanted to, or after...

Since we don't know your preferences I would suggest "The Explorer's Guide to Death Valley National Park" by Bryan & Bryan, ISBN 0-87081-409-5. I agree this is probably the best all around DV guidebook out there. I hope it will be revised soon, I've found a few of the roads described now closed. Ho...

Bighorn Locations

I've been successful finding Bighorns on multiple occassions in two locations in particular: Surprise Canyon (Panamint Range) in the summer, Titus Canyon in winter. The closest encounter I've had with them was a year ago, in January 2002. I was driving after sunset below Leadfield in Titus Canyon. I...

Indian Writings & Vandalism

:evil: Vandalism of cultural and historic sites make me furious. It's sad to see and it jeapordises access to those of us who appreciate them. Out my way, almost all petroglyph and pictograph sites I know of, including those you have to hike in to, have been damaged to some extent by some yo-yo bent...
