I recently completed a series of electrical and other upgrades and decided to take it out to Death Valley for a 3 day trial. Altogether I had an additional 25 gallons of gas which extended my range to over 700 miles, enabling me to hang out in the back country without visiting any high-priced gas stations.
Past Trona I stopped for this great view of the valley.
On the other side of the road there is a whimsical cave-shrine and you never know what sorts of odd figures will be resident.

My plan was to set up a base camp near the Wildrose Charcoal Kilns and then set out from there to explore each day. The campground was at 7300' and had a little snow and ice on the ground. A perfect excuse for a tent mounted up high!
Some views of the famous kilns built by Chinese labor to supply charcoal to the local ore processing operations. This is your first view of them as you come up the dirt road.
