Hi, everyone -

Highly uncharacteristically, I am thinking of heading
to DV for a holiday weekend, namely, the upcoming
Thanksgiving weekend. Seeing as it will be in the chilly
season (for a summer visitor like me!) and that I will
be bringing along (I hope :) ) a first timer, I am
thinking of trying for accomodations (instead of the more
typical sleep-in-the-back-of-the-truck thing). I'm
wondering what you regulars think of my odds of getting
a reservation at:

Panamint Springs resort,
Stovepipe Wells motel,
some place (particular suggestions anyone?) in Beatty, NV.

.. I imagine the random cabins scattered about get claimed
*real* fast on a weekend like this....

Oh, one more question - how cold is it likely to get
at night, say at Mesquite Springs sort of elevation
(2000 ft), anyone know from experience?)
