    Oh and I did mention that they are free to use? :) You are supposed to be limited to 4 days but I know a couple of folks that spend weeks at these cabins.

    Just hook your 20# bottle up and you have hot water, gas lights (throughout), refrigerator (propane), hot shower and it even has a bath tub!!! :)

    There's something about Death Valley that I can't explain, a vibe, a voodoo, IDK, it's a very special place, I've been there twice and one of the main reasons I bought my tacoma is to go back there.

    It's stuff like this that makes me wish I had waited for a 4x4 instead of settling on the Prerunner. Some day I'll have my trail rig, looks like an awesome good time.

    I think a locked 2wd would do fine in Death Valley. It is really dry and rocky, coarse, traction is not a huge concern, from my experience. If you get into the the snowy places, maybe.
