We'll be tying a trip to DVNP onto the end of a conference in Vegas in January. We've just booked our flights so the dates are now set. Still working out the details of what to do each day and I will work more on that over the coming weeks. My question now has to do with the last two days.
First the plans so far:
Friday leave LV drive to Beatty. Need internet/wifi that night and I think there are a couple of options in Beatty for that.
Sat and Sun DVNP, two nights in SPW Village, rooms booked. I will be working on which areas to see / hikes to plan / etc / for each day, and will probably be back with questions after I've done more planning.
We've done a day trip to LVNP about 5 yrs ago so at least have a sense of the place and have visited a couple of sites.
Monday..... what to do, where to stay. Mon night need internet/wifi again. (We're business owners and must attend to our clients while traveling so this is essential.)
Tuesday - must arrive back in LV by 2PM to return car, catch flight at 5PM. Can probably fit in some additional sites Tues AM.
Options for Mon / Tues - More of DVNP, or Mojave Natl Preserve (MNP)? Both Primm and Pahrump have lodging options with wifi. Shoshone, Tecopa, Armagosa Valley, DV Junction apparently do not (unless I'm missing something....)
We like to hike / birdwatch / explore / see the beauty. We also like to eat great food, but are just as happy to nibble on cheese/fruit/bread in the room, so there is no need for us to be close to dining options.
Where to stay Mon night - Pahrump or Primm?
Should we try to do some of MNP on Monday/Tues AM or should we go back into DVNP? It looks like there are more than enough hikes in DVNP to keep us occupied for 3 days, but then again MNP looks tantalizing and is (sort of) right on the way back to LV and is closer to Primm if we end up there....
THANKS for any suggestions!
