Gasoline Prices

Barker Ranch ... if you don't mind the history ... ;-)

Gas here in Tecate, MX is just over $2.61/gallon. It hurts having to fill up in the States anymore!

Re: Good old days- I hope not

I think they'll feel sorry for us that we had to actually go to those places rather than comfortably sit with a dround plugged into the back of our head connected to a Plasma Experience Record Blob -- with SmelliVision(TM) & Massage.

Racetrack

I just got a call from friends in DV and they are wondering about the current conditions of the Racetrack. Does anyone have any up-to-date info? Is the playa dry enough to walk on?

It's a pain having the NPS website down!
