This was our first trip to DV so we wanted to take the whirlwind approach and see as much as we possibly could. Its definitely on our list to go back (next year), slow down and concentrate in selected areas.
Worst? there was no "worst" we enjoyed every place we visited. The most "challenging" was Mengel Pass. (I only have front lockers). The photos in Seth's report are exactly at the toughest location. Between the Geologist Cabin and the Pass. The ranger at Furnace creek said there was no way a full size van would make it over the top.
Saline Valley Road "washboard" was the least enjoyable. We aired down to 28psi but could not find a comfortable speed range above 15mph.
