March 30 – April 2

Death Valley is one of the coolest places on earth. I love it. Maybe I love it to death. Sorry.

I’m going there on the “DVX” (Death Valley eXtreme!) reunion trip — a repeat of what we did for Cesar Chavez weekend last year. Bryant hubristically names it DVX III because he went there another time, but really it’s DVX II.

If you’ve never been to Death Valley, go. Last year’s day 2 was: driving over a pass and having a snowball fight, entering valley and having lunch and playing frisbee on sand dunes next to a big lake (surrounded by snow-capped peaks), then evening relaxation in a palm-tree oasis of natural hot springs.
