Death Valley is warmer than Brookings and definitely drier. Gas in Death Valley is expensive however, you're not likely to fill your tank more than once in a week while there. Death Valley will be sunny every day and night time temps above freezing. Brookings will have similar lows, cloudier days and 10 degree lower highs.

We love coastal Oregon but Death Valley is unique and definitely worth the visit.

Kamper Bob is currently in Death Valley. I don't have his blog address but I read a few days back about all the cool stuff he was doing there. Sorry it was someone else post. it might even have been Norm who had commented about charcoal cones or something. Reading his blog would give you a wealth of information. Better yet he will be in Quartzite at the rally early February.

Sounds like weather in Death Valley can take big swings during winter months. While there in late November early December last year it was in the high 60's to mid 70's during the day, a couple of days it was even warmer and had trouble keeping my fridge cool enough one day. Camped in the Furnace Creek area without power and need to plug in the solar every couple of days to recharge the battery due to heavy use of the Fantastic Fan to cool the trailer down. Was there for a week and did not experience any wind or need the furnace at night.

I sit here in the visitors center at Furnace Creek, Death Valley, CA. It's currently sunny and probably 50+ degrees outside. I haven't looked for a while. As far as I'm concerned January, February, and March are the only times to visit Death Valley. I suppose that November and December are warm.
I've visited with Kamper Bob twice since our arrival.

Happy New Year and you can follow our travels at trips.kinnamans.net

Hope to see any of you at some camp ground or another.
