DV Gold Point

March 10th 2017

Description

This run will hopefully take in Lippencott Mine Rd., the Race Track, Lost Burrro Mine, Tule Canyon, Gold Point and Phinney Canyon.  It is a long way from a gas stop so it is imperative that everyone bring 5 gal of extra gas.  Also requesting folks bring fire wood as it most likely be cold.  

We will meet on Friday morning at the Ranch House in Olancha.  The Ranch House is located a short distance north of the intersection of 395 and 190 (the Death Valley cutoff.) and one mile north of the Mobil Station in Olancha.   I recommend that you fill up at the Shell station in Pearsonville and top off at the Mobil station in Olancha.  The difference in price is usually about $1.00 per gallon.
