Re: Author Carlos Castaneda - Death Valley death

PSR has had to adjust with business costs and from what I know they were throwing away too much food. All you can eat eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, toast, pancakes, gravy...think that's it. All for $10. It was a great deal out there.

Re: Mixing Jealousy & Admiration For DV NPS Staff

Sad to see it gone but I'm glad I got some pics of it when it was there. Another era coming to a close.
