Re: Blood thinners

So October 2012 I somehow(excessive neck stretches?) stretched a artery over an arthritic vertebrae and some how tore a two inch tear in the artery, resulting in a internal carotid artery dissection, with horner's syndrome being the symptom. Luckily I caught it in time, clot didn't break and head in...

Re: Salt Creek Source - McLean Spring

We try to do the hike from Salt Creek parking lot to the springs at least once per year. Love valley floor hikes. It's a bit risky as you climb over those soft mud hills as there are steep drop offs to the creek. Last late March we arrived just after the heavy rains and much of the trail along and a...

Re: Joe Moore - Flintknapper nearly dies in RV crash - update

Ah that's why we didn't see him this last last week of October but did see him last week in March 2019. Guess we will try to visit him when we arrive in five weeks again!. Never talked to him...didn't know what he was about! They used to do barbecue dinners once per week on that deck. Is the museum ...

Re: Jets at Star Wars canyon

From the park page: " Please protect this fragile resource. No swimming!"

I know there are signs of course no dogs and to also stay out of the water as it is drinking water for PSR.

The sign says no swimming.

Re: I Have Something In Common With Death Valley Scotty and Albert Einstein, do you?

Well you appear to be four years older than me but seem to be in better shape and you have your hair!

Back in nine weeks. Hope it is much warmer than my way too cold and windy last week October trip!

Re: Jets at Star Wars canyon

Are you people sure flights have stopped? I believe it was posted somewhere here that jets were flying in the canyon again as of 9/16, perhaps just not as often. I know there were people up there a couple of months ago sitting around waiting. I believe they said the jets had come through. This was f...

Re: B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber flew directly over my head

I've seen/heard them a couple of times flying low in the valley at FC. I once thought the other plane was a refueling plane. Thought I saw a fuel line connecting the two but most likely not!

Re: Wildflower potential

Randy these recent fall rains will help with flowers. Now need it to continue into spring, but not during our late annual March trip! This past late March we arrived in the early evening just after all the big rains and road wash outs. We've never seen such sharp, clear and colorful sky/scenes as we...

Re: RIP Death Valley pay phones

It's odd...but the last couple of years, when we make our way south driving past Burns, OR in far SE Oregon, our ATT signs becomes "out of network" through central NV and into DV. No extra charges or notices have been charged. But at Teakettle Junction we got four bars ATT 4G. Everywhere else in the...

Re: November Visit

I/we just returned Monday from a week long trip that was the coldest and windiest I've seen last week of October last three years! 49er's have it good this week! Yes the early morning after the winds, at sunrise(I know, starts real early now) is the best. You might see sidewinder tracts...following ...
