Wow, Dave, did you know that they close down DVNP after Easter for
the rest of the summer? It can reach +125F or higher at Easter so be
prepared with lots of water. I loved to visit Bodie and Scottie's
Castle. I lived in Barstow 1971-1976. The desert was my playground
with my old 66 GMC suburban V6.
But been there, done that, and don't miss it! ;-) GL on the sats!
