    Another reason why you have no earthly clue what you're doing playing craps.

    Averages a 9.8 SRR (RSR)....and your response. "Who in the hell cares"?

    LOL....9.8 and you don't care?

    You don't know what you're doing. Stay with fishing, Billy.

    Next thing you'll tell us is that you can't make money with a 3.5 SRR....

    LOL...At 123, it really is past the point of dry or humid. Like standing behind a furnace.

    There’s good reason they call this place Death....

    even the most conditioned won’t survive long.

    You’re welcome, random.

    Death Valley Ranch intrigues me. A resort? What does one go there to do?

    They go there to look at a sign beside the road that says elev. -282 ft. Is real real exciting. :confused: Secondly, you go there, to stay inside, out of the heat. You can escape more heat in Death Valley, than any place else in North America, except for the craps tables at Red Rock.
    Been there once, have no desire to ever return. A bleak, desolate, landscape, and so is Death Valley. :D

    If you are talking about the temperature, NO, nights are only a few degrees cooler, in the Mojave desert, even in the upper elevations, it's still pretty warm at night, in the summer. :cool:

    There is the Inn and the Ranch. Both offer nice accommodations. The Inn has a stellar reputation (rooms run around $300-$400).....the ranch has cabins and rooms. Both have nice restaurants, a saloon, gift shops, golf course, swimming pools, horse back riding. The Inn and ranch are small little oasis' in the most desolate, hottest place on Earth. Real cool.

    Death Valley has many sights to see and explore....from Ubehebe crater, 20 Mule team trail, Scottys castle (still closed but coming back on line), bad water basin (lowest point on earth)....Artists Palette.

    If you have a love for the desert and like extremes in terms of temps and environments....this is the place.

    Scotty’s Castle. Rich history. The hole is the unfinished pool. Construction started around 1920 and went until 1930. Owner lost a lot during the 1928 crash and never finished the grounds. Inside is a sight to behold. Best tour out west, IMO. Hopefully re opening soon. They experienced one of the worst floods near there about 4 years ago....took out the roads and flooded the entire complex.

    87 at night in Death Valley is quite comfortable. Warm....but not bad. The dry heat is much more tolerable than 87 and humid.

    Anything north of 100 in the sun....and you will be looking for shade and a cold brew.

    thanx for the pictures td. although its been my experience that once you hit anywhere outside of cities in Nevada, the desert looks the same, everywhere. brown, brown, tan, tan, and more brown and tan.

    If you have an interest in military jets as I do....there's a place called Star Wars Canyon within Death Valley, and if catch the timing right you'll see everything from F-35's to F-15, F-16 all doing 500-600mph....all low level too.

    Incredible. Typically, national parks are off limits for this stuff...but they made a special exemption for this Canyon within Death Valley.

    Unless you are really adverse to heat of any kind....trust me, 87 at night and you'll be fine. It actually feels good.

    What can I say about the worth of TDB changing dice sets ? That and a $1.89 gets you a small cup of DD coffee.

    He has some good rolls - He has some bad ones. Great to be random!

    It is NOT the lowest place on Earth. That would be, the Dead Sea, which is about 1300 ft, below sea level. You could say the Challenger Deep, of the Mariana Trench is the lowest place. 36,000 ft below sea level.
