  1. Registration is now open for the inaugural Death Valley Experience event. https://cal4wheel.com/death-valley-experience Early Bird discount pricing is available until February 26 (or until runs are filled.)
  2. Although I would hope to have a large turnout, our permit from DVNP limits us to 72 vehicles per day. BuT it’s a big park!
  3. Save The Date! Death Valley Experience 2021 The California Four Wheel Drive Association is happy to announce our inaugural Death ValleyExperience event March 10-14, 2021. This event is a fund raiser for the Association. Each day will feature a choice of runs to somefamous, some infamous and some secretive points of interest within Death Valley National Park. The runs will depart from Furnace Creek and from Stovepipe Wells. Registration includes your choice of one run, a special inaugural edition Death Valley Experience shirt, and a delicious box lunch. You can choose additional runs for an additional charge. We are still working out the run details and will have online registration open soon so you can register and choose your trail run(s). Our permit places a limit to the number of vehicles allowed on each run. We expect that the runs will fill up fast, so be sure to put your name on the notification list and we will alert you as soon as we are ready to accept registrations. Some of the points of interest we will visit during Death Valley Experience 2021 include Zabriskie Point (famous), Barker Ranch (infamous) and the Racetrack (learn the secret of the moving rocks). Other points of interest include Dante’s View, 20 Mule Team Canyon, Artists’ Drive, Chloride Cliffs, Aguereberry Point, Skidoo, Titus Canyon, and Darwin Falls. All of the trails will be rated by difficulty and are suitable for unmodified vehicles with high clearance and 4 wheel drive. You will be on your own to arrange for accommodations. Death Valley National Park has a range of developed campgrounds, primitive backcountry camping, and luxurious hotels. We will provide you a list of campgrounds and hotels in the Park.

  8. SOLD! I'm picking up my new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Diesel in a few days. I'm going to upgrade my factory 33" tires to 34s. America's Tire will only give me $400 trade in ($80 each) for the brand new new tires. Anyone want to offer me more? Four tires will have about 25 miles on them, and the spare will have zero miles on it. Retail is about $300 per tire.
  9. Allen, One of the accessories on the Element Fire website is a roll bar mount https://elementfire.com/collections/allproducts/products/roll-bar-mount I plan to use the roll bar mount for my Element 50, and then store the second extinguisher in the cargo tub. Russ
  10. Based on the video on the Element website, I think that one extinguisher would be sufficient, but I plan to purchase two. Although they are expensive, they don't take up much room and they have a long shelf life.
  11. Marty, I have always carried a small, dry chemical (1A10BC) fire extinguisher, like this one. Over the years, I have had to use it twice to put out engine fires (not on my own Jeep, but on others that I was wheeling with). Both engine fires were caused by fuel leaks. Both times, one fire extinguisher was not enough. Fortunately, we had more fire extinguishers in our group and the second extinguisher was enough to put out the fire. On my next Jeep, I plan to carry a couple Element Fire Extinguishers. Russ
  12. I see lots of industrial robots doing the hard work. I'm pretty sure that in a few years, the only human workers in the plant will be seated in a control room, sipping coffee and watching the robots at work.
