Spring Death Valley Plans



This message should answer all the questions I got at breakfast last
Sunday regarding my plans for the spring Death Valley ride.  In typical
breakfast club fashion there will probably be several sub-groups doing
different routes at different times.  This is what I plan on doing.
Feel free to join me, join another group, lead anther group, or otherwise
ride your own ride.

Note 1:	all times (other than each day's initial departure time) are
	approximate.   The milage for each leg is also a WAG.

Note 2:	This route skips the Kern River entry to Lake Isabella on
	Friday.   I'll be doing it in the other direction on Sunday.
