The 20/20 story follows a day trip to Death Valley involving Donna Cooper and her family, where a lack of updated information causes the Garmin GPS in her car to give directions leading her horribly astray from any civilization. Her car runs out of gas in a remote part of the park near Scotty's Castle, and the lives of the family are saved only by a California Highway Patrol chopper who got lucky and followed a hunch, finally locating the family in a small area known as "The Big Trees." The nightmare story of being lost in one of the Earth's most harsh climates without food or water has a happy ending, but should be used as a learning experience. It isn't called "Death valley" for nothing, and many of the other National Parks that are located within driving distance of Las Vegas are equally daunting.
Bindlestiff Tours offers an experience that is both safe and entertaining, as the operators utilize professional equipment and vehicles so as to tour in style and comfort, but also have an intricate knowledge of each area that they tour. As a learning experience, a professional tour operator will provide the tidbits of information that you cannot find in books, and as a tourist experience you will have a far more pleasurable trip not worrying about your GPS being updated.
Several tour packages are available that will provide the adventure you are seeking, and private tours are another option for those who want a more private experience. National Parks like Zion, Bryce, Death Valley and the Grand Canyon provide scenery and landscapes that are unlike anywhere else on the golbe, and professional tour companies like Bindlestiff Tours can enhance the experience by removing the stress.
