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!
