    Death Valley Trip

    I have lived in CA for most of my adult life and never have been to death valley.
    So on a road trip with new brother in law - GAME ON! (Who had to use a pit toilet in stovepipe wells at 11:00am and 110 deg after his 4:00 am breakfast burrito started kicking hard).

    I taught earth Science for a few years - it was the most epic rock viewing ever!! In one place - you could see metamorphic formations - sedimentary formations and volcanic activity!! Siltstone!!! ohhhh.... sorry...

    Of course I brought fat bike. Riding in the soft sand was like riding across the parking lot! (of course I could not ride in the Valley itself - Park rules) - so I played on the edges. I did ride up a small road where the borax mine was - and had my picture taken by 100 old people who were let out of a bus. I road back down on the fossilized dunes.... way fun!

    Tubeless Larry on drilled Graceful fat Sheba rims at ~10psi (I weigh 245lbs) on my Necro-neck romancing black ops pugs.

    When I can afford it I will put a Bud up front and a Nate in the back.. but Larry for now!

    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    Went back out to Cape San Blas. The Light Keepers Houses have been moved a little farther from the beach. The town of Port St. Joe wants to move them along with the Lighthouse to town. The county is trying to keep them out on the Cape but move them just a few miles to a local park. I hope the county wins.



    Since there was no one around I made my very 1st trip up the Lighthouse.

    I just got a Gravity Deadeye, nothing fancy, but I really like the bike, it should be prefect for all the sandy trails in the Pine Barrens on LI. Of course the day after I got it, I drove straight to the beach after work to test it out. Once I aired down the tires a bit more, it worked really well on the firmer sand. The 3.0 tires just don't have enough flotation for the soft dry sand, I'd need 4" tires on wide rims or maybe even something closer to 5", but they should be just fine in the Pine Barrens. I already want to get another fatbike with wider tires so my dad and I can ride in the Pine Barrens and on the beach.

    Tires didn't sink at all in the firmer sand when aired down, my tire gauge said 4psi, they are pretty soft and bulged about an inch wider.

    This soft sand is a little too soft, I could kinda pedal through it but I just didn't float enough.

    I stayed out of the water, but riding along those rocks at the edge of the water was great, the tires just soaked it all up and I floated along.

    Silly question time Ozzy, what's the fence do? Stop seaweed washing ashore or prevent erosion?

    Not sure where to post this, so it is a cross post. What the heck, it is a big forum.

    Now for some different sand, visited some LI Pine Barrens, followed the power lines that I've been hiking along for over 20 years. Deadeye with it's 3" tires does pretty well, still a little trouble in really soft stuff but I can manage, seems to be good at about 4psi (I weigh like 140). What I love is going up hills with loose pebbles and stuff, where my normal 2.1 tires would spin, these just glom onto the loose stuff and climb up with little to no tire spin, definitely a good thing with singlespeed! Next is to visit the scrub pines in Westhampton where it's really sandy.
