    But that was for Chevron with Techron. Of course you are going to get your eyes gouged out. That is "The Chevron Way".

    I do want to go there sometime. I saw a 2 week photography workshop advertised once for Death Valley. The first week was outside of the valley in a hotel for the class room portion. The second week was glamping in Death Valley. It was only $5,000 +/-
  2. It was also the only gas station in the park. It might have been the only gas station within 50 or more miles. I didn't check the price of gas in the very small towns near the park, but I imagine that their prices were also above the national average, though of course not as high as in the park. It's a really desolate area.
  3. Karen,
    I was there about 15 years ago with a group of photobuds for six days.
    One thing that really sticks out in my mind is that the pre-sunrise temperatures were quite cold, and rose quickly after the sun came up. Every morning we dressed for late fall/early winter and progressively did a striptease as the mornings wore on. Dress in layers that you can comfortably remove and stow as you are shooting.

    Thanks for the tip!!! I'm be sure to pack several layers, and my gloves!

    And right now I'm considering driving the extra 100 miles and going in on Hwy 127 out of Barstow, although I very sure we and our 35' rig could handle the route on Hwy 190.......

    Karen, if you like it or not, visit the McDonalds in Barstow.
    It's build from old railroad waggons and looks very interesting inside and outside.
    Really something special.
