We had a great time in Death Valley

Headed out to Death Valley last weekend with a few friends and had a great time.

Re: We had a great time in Death Valley

Looks like big fun. I'm watching the snow fall here and headed to work, so it was nice to go to DV for a few minutes.

BTW, love the paint/graphics on the van. I hadn't seen it up close. Sweet!

Re: We had a great time in Death Valley

Ramsey, you make me anxious to get a TTB set up under my van, just been to busy to even come down to your shop for a visit. Looks like your close to needing 37's stuffed under that thing on a couple of those rocks . Great video, shows EB's aren't so bad with all that real estate out back.

Re: We had a great time in Death Valley

Thanks for posting up. I should be in that area in about a month (weather permitting). Did you come all the way down Goler Wash? Anything worse (or better, depending on your view point) than what you show at Mengel Pass?

Love the photos of Striped Butte with the snow around.

Re: We had a great time in Death Valley

Mengel Pass was the worst spot with a few others about the same. Goler Wash was bladed a few weeks ago.

Beautiful area and great four-wheeling, I want to go back soon!

Awesome!
Ironically last time I was there was with a bunch of Landcruiser guys, I probably know some of those guys...

Keep wanting to go back especially w the suspension upgrade.

Ramsey, ironically one of my friends & co-workers was on the trip with you. I was just talking with him and now I recognize his Land Cruiser in your picture as well. He said it was a great trip and he was extremely impressed by your van.

Which LC? Those guys really enjoy their vehicles and use them. One broke a front differential and we had to do some work on it on the trail to get it back to camp - fun group!
