    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards. Therefore, the time has come to move DVTalk to a more modern, better equipped campsite. All visitors wishing to post must register. If you were previously a registered user of DVTalk, we transferred your DVTalk Nickname and the email address that you used as your Login Name -- but not your password.

The visibility here in Winnemucca has been 0.5 to 0.75 mile the past couple days. I tried to barbecue on my deck yesterday but my eyes, throat and lungs were burning.

my friends in Independence told me someone blocked the trail with boulders so not possible to make the run. Badger Flat had lots of traffic this spring and the canyon was full of rvs from La after stay at home order was given. BLM had no issues with campers but Inyo sheriff dept told them to leave Inyo county.We are smoked out in Reno and at place in Portola area been crazy year.

That be me. I moved to north central Nevada in 2008 from Big Pine. I’ve made the entire run over Harkless Flat, Mazourka Flat, Badger Flat several times. I was afraid to try it in my 1996 Chevrolet S10 4x4 pickup, but actually it wouldn’t have had any issues. Finally tried it after trading the Chevy in on my 2002 Toyota Tacoma TRD 4x4, which I owned until last year. Gave it to a family member and replaced the truck with a 4Runner.

David Wright is right. This forum, as well as Panamintvalley.com are staying in place, and there are no plans for that to change.
