    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards. Therefore, the time has come to move DVTalk to a more modern, better equipped campsite. All visitors wishing to post must register.

Welcome to the group, Laura;

Where in Panamint are you talking about, when referring to that hammock?

Yes, Ballarat has new caretakers, and they are doing some decent fixing up to the place. Restrooms are actually usable, and the general store has a few things now for sale. I don't have contact info for the folks, but I'll see if I can dig up an email, if they have one. Rocky is doing well, now living in Trona.

Hi Death Valley Talkers!

I was out in CA for a few decades, and Death Valley was my getaway spot to go explore and hang by myself. I'm back on the east coast where I grew up now, and miss Death Valley dearly. One of my favorite memories of all time was sleeping in that hammock over the trickly stream behind the Panamint bar listening to the coyotes all night, before heading off to the little oasis at sunrise a couple years back.

I heard last year that the owners of Ballarat were making some changes, and I was hoping to get in touch with them. Does anyone know who that is and how I can reach them?

Much thanks in advance, folks. I look forward to getting back out there again one day.
