I am ready to declare October 4-6 as the weekend for this event. The group site for Panamint Springs appears to be booked for October 4, but I think we can make do with individual sites as needed. I'll call today to see how many sites are still available for that night.
Here is a link to the proposed route in and out: http://goo.gl/maps/V9wTk
This would be my ideal itinerary:
Friday Oct. 4, afternoon: Arrive at Panamint Springs Resort. Meetup and camp.
Saturday Oct. 5, morning: Break camp and drive to Racetrack via Hunter Mountain Road.
Saturday Oct. 5, evening: Arrive at Homestake Dry Camp and camp.
Sunday Oct. 5, morning: Break camp and drive back to Highway 190 via Hunter Mountain Road.
