Death Valley

January 20th to January 23rd 2022.

 

We are planning a route similiar to last year. We will meet at the Tangerine Exit of I10 at 8 am. We will be to the gas station at the Butterfield exit, exit119, in Gila Bend at about 9:30. We will meet riders from Phoenix or Casa Grande there.

 

We will take old US80 and Salome road and stop for lunch in Salome. 

The first night is in Laughlin. We plan to stay this year in the Golden Nugget Hotel, 2300 S Casino Dr. (702) 298-7111. We will be meeting in the Claim Jumper Restaurant, 702) 298-7146,  at 5:00 pm for dinner. SEAT is again paying for all drinks. 

We will leave the hotel Friday morning at 7:30 stopping in Searchlight for breakfast. Then we will continue on to Baker, Shoshone, Bad Water and Furnace Creek. We are staying the second night in Beatty Nevada. The hotel of choice is the Exchange Club Motel.  (775) 553-2333. We have a group rate for $81.75 with tax. Ask for the SEAT discount. 

If the weather is good we will eat at the Happy Burro at 5:30. If the weather is not good we will eat at Smokin' Jays BBQ and go to the Happy Burro for beers. The BBQ is next door to the hotel and the Burro is across the street. 

We will have breakfast Saturday morning at Mel's Diner and leave town at 8 am. We will return to the Valley. Form your own groups if you wish. 

The third night is in Boulder City. The two choices are the Boulder Dam Hotel, (702) 293-3510 or the Sands Motel (702) 293-2589. They are both good but the Boulder Dam Hotel has no rooms with 2 beds. The Sands is less expensive. We are eating at Jack's Pace, 544 Nevada Hwy, at 5:00. It is walking distance from both hotels. 

We will return home on Sunday.

We usually have a large group. We don't like to ride in a group of more than 6 or 8 riders. Feel free to set up your own groups, take your own route and stop where you want.

 

Keep an eye out for new riders that are not familiar with the route or don't have regular riding partners.  We don't like to lose anyone. If you see someoine you do not know introduce yourself. 

All meeting times are at local time. Always start out with a full tank of gas. Put everyone's phone number in your phone. We will publish a list of names and numbers. If there are more details of the ride as we get closer they will be sent only to those on the list on this page. Let Craig know if you are going. Some people choose to only go to Laughlin.

 

The only thing certain about the weather is that it is uncertain. Come prepared for rain, snow and hot weather. Check your tires before you leave. You will ride about 1300 miles.  

Ride your own ride and be careful. Watch our for each other.
