Spent the last half of March in Death Valley with friends from the Expo Retired Ol' Farts group. It was a great trip with a good group of people. Looking forward go going back to DV another time to see the things that we did not have time to see. My slightly modified 4Runner handled the gravel, rock, and dirt roads extremely well. Scraped the stock running boards going down the first step at Steel Pass. No real damage. Missed the line and broke a valve stem on a rock going up Mengel Pass. Plugged the stem with a piece of wood. Got winched over one rock. After that rock the bolder field was easy.

The full trip report and lots of photos are on my blog, http://luinil.com/travelBlog/index.php.
