Taken from another forum discussing this sad topic: "The Racetrack is a famous feature of Death Valley National Park. People want to see it. Local communities demand that it stay open to bring in the tourist dollars. The solution at the Racetrack will be to bring in more public with management. The ...

The tailgate is a porch and allows more room for gear and doormat. A lot of pop-up owners don't like the tailgate on but I like it.

It is a bummer FWC isn't making the Eagle/Finch and have gone with a wider profile.

Yes they are a rare FWC. For one person they are great. Heck I've mostly used mine for two person trips and spent 10hrs inside during a rainstorm. Only drawback over an Eagle is lack of ability to stealth camp but when mine is loaded for a trip there's no way to get in there anyhow.

May be too late but this is a good place to watch for a Finch. This is the 2nd one to be posted for sale lately.

I've seen laughable quality security cams that have helped incarcerate jackwads. Carry on.

You say that as if it were the most trivial thing ever to accomplish. I'm left to believe that you have no experience with this sort of thing. First there's the cost of the equipment, which would have to be deployed in such a way that every part of the valley was captured in fine enough detail that...

It would be great if the NPS could put up cameras at points of entry into the area or anywhere around specific sites for that matter. All they would have to do is review the video record and have all the evidence they would need for prosecution.

Too bad we don't have gallows ready and waiting for tools who decide to behave this way. Fortunately when I've been to the Racetrack it was pristine. I don't get it. There are so many places in the desert to do stupid crap that aren't in a national park. I don't think any new monuments in the Mojave...

I too suggest spending one night in Panamint Springs. Skies are even darker there than DV proper (Stovepipe/Furnace). Camping isn't expensive there and they have a restaurant and SHOWERS!

Also, there is a cool webcam on the reservation in the FC area...instead of one view, the camera slowly rotates and gives a panorama view: http://timbisha.com/index.php/weather The webcam's great, but I guess because it's for the purpose of weather, it's pointed a bit up. When you zoom in, all you ...

Thanks for sharing. I've got several webcams that I check daily or just leave up on my desktop since I'm not there in person to enjoy it.
