Many volks who are on the road from the Northwest USA & Canada to Busses by the Bridge stop off in Death Valley along the way. This is not an organized campout, but a place to communicate about where campers are headed. In 2010, we gathered at the Texas Spring campground a few days before BBB and then migrated southward. Hopefully we can use this as a way to keep in touch as to gatherings and whereabouts.

My plan at the moment is to arrive at Panamint Springs on or about January 8. Let us know what your plans are.
I'm a Firm Maybe right now.
I will be there!

So, if you crave more photos of the Death Valley Journey & Experience, start here:
I'd like to drive as far as Bishop on January 7, weather permitting,
Then, on January 8, I want to head to Panamint Springs for an overnight stay.
Beyond that, I have no plans, except to hook up with Vanagonauts in DV over the next few days
Minor update: It sounds like many volks will head to BBB on Thursday, 1/12, as they have decided to open the park 1 day early this year. So the best bet for connecting with others seems to be Texas Spring Campground a day or two before January 12. Others may chime in with their plans. I am going to try to be at Texas Spring on January 10. Also, one traveller recommended checking CB Channel 14 on the hour. There is historically a group that migrates to "Craggy Wash" north of the BBB campground the day before. I'll try to get the 411 on that. I know I have a Google Earth locale somewhere. Just have to find it.
I can email the Google Earth location for Craggy Wash to anyone that needs it. And there will be some Westy people at Texas Springs/Furnace creek 3,4,5 Jan, Bernie and Larry Chase right now. Then on to Valley of Fire for some.
