They were pissed about my pancakes too...

It does too work. But it's nasty. I learned in Girl Scouts that if you want to eat them, you need to put tin foil down. Although then you're not really doing the egg on the sidewalk thing. More like a solar stove...

Of all the national parks, I think that Death Valley would be the worst one to be assigned to.

Besides, baking cookies on your dashboard is what all the cool kids are doing these days.

Sometimes I forget how privileged I am. Then I hear about people with real problems.

WTF? That's not the American way. They should be opening a gift shop that sells eggs for $7 each.

I should think you'd also want to use a blacktop/asphalt base rather than white concrete, right?

It's Death Valley...there aren't many critters.

I love the placenames in the area.  Death Valley, Furnace Creek, Badwater Basin.

So true. Death Valley was named by Mormon explorers walking through parts unknown. In the not summer seasons, the geology, the clean air are unparalleled. It's a different eye candy from the usual trees and lakes view. The hiking is awesome. Because I'm not on my cellphone I will have to google some generic pics instead of my own.

Not to forget Stovepipe Wells. Or Darwin Springs. Or Devil's Golf Course.

In the not heat related, Artist's Palette is also well named.

You have to do the bacon first and take the grease with a spoon and drip it over the eggs.

I was stationed at Ft. Irwin, an army base at the Southwestern edge of DV.  You do get used to the heat, plus once you get above 110 there's pretty much zero humidity.

What was far worse were the temperature swings: some days during the winter it might hit 100 during the daytime and then swing down towards 30 at night.  Plus of course it's a freaking desert filled with all sorts of stuff that can kill you (besides the heat).

As long as they don't get all uppity about all the dripply semen I left on the sidewalk, I really don't have a problem with this.

Bullshiat! What else they got to do...stand around and sweat for the tourists?

Your job is to clean up after the tourists after they do their stupid touristy thing, so STFU and get to it!

The sidewalk is plenty hot to cook an egg, as long as you have a metal frying pan to conduct the heat from the sidewalk to the egg.

Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: The sidewalk is plenty hot to cook an egg, as long as you have a metal frying pan to conduct the heat from the sidewalk to the egg.


by that logic they would cook on their own without a frying pan.

you're wrong. I dont think 120F* is enough to cook an egg, and the DV park rangers agree.

*however hot the sidewalks in Death Valley get

No. Metal heats up more easily than concrete or asphalt, so it heats faster and gets hotter given the same energy inputs. Sun beating down, black skillet, high ambient temperature... That sucker's gonna fry. You could also try the hood of a dark colored car.
 
2013-07-09 10:28:27 PM
I like mine hard-boiled, not fried on asphalt. They must taste horrible. I saw that somebody at a TV station in Phoenix baked cookies in a van. They weren't great but the van smelled like fresh baked cookes for days.

Ah, America. Where I can make a stupid mess for stupid reasons because I am a stupid person, then stupidly tell other people to clean it up because I hate dealing with my own stupidity.

Maybe they just need to make a youtube of how to paint an egg black with food coloring and set it on the tarmac whole to make a soft or hard baked egg!  Delicious with some salt and/or pepper.  Hell, they could sell black eggs in the gift shop!

The husband and i just did...for the shiats and giggles of it. Actually, we're still on the way home. We did not try to fry any eggs on the ground.

Powder day bro. Shred it!


The type of people going to tourist traps and doing stupid shiat are not the people who are going to 'shred' anything, aside from some cheese into their fried sandwich.
 
2013-07-09 10:48:34 PM
Why anyone would make an egg that they don't intend to eat on a rock or the pavement is beyond me anyway.

/best part of that article is the chick's tits in the white top
//derp lets go to death valley and risk sun strokes to make eggs

Couldn't the local TV station show the broadcast from 1977 when they first fried an egg (and they covered it in a glass dome and nobody ate it) and call it news?  It's the same story.

Then in three months... A run on Xmas Lights!!!!
Then in a month: Snowzilla!  Get shovels and sand or your children will die.
