I am short on time and may need help planning this one. Alain is suggesting the following which looks like a fun trip:
Death Valley through Eureka Dunes, Steel Pass, Saline Valley and Racetrack Road.
For campsites I see the following on the loop:
- Mesquite Springs (reservable)
- Homestake Dry Camp
- Warm Springs
- Eureka Dunes
Depending on how much ground we are covering we can pick the campsites as we progress....

Assuming we meet Friday in or close to DV and go our separate ways Sunday... Is it possible to do the saline loop and fit in the drive to racetrack? Should we meet out there Thursday to fit it all in? Looking at the map I wasn't sure what is do-able. I will do some more homework. If anyone has input or suggestions let me know.
Also looks like we will have 7+ vehicles going so we will "split up" in to two groups that may happen to be driving together and ending up at the same camp sites.
