I am heading to DV on the 20th of March with 8 friends on street bikes. First night in Hawthorne - 3 nights in Beatty and one night in Lone Pine. It looks like most of the DV area is open now except for Scottys Castle - it may be closed for over another year because of severe flooding and mud....I think we may get lucky and get there in the peak bloom - there's a week of warm wether before we get there.
Next year I want to take the motorhome and the TW there! Maybe we can get a group going.
