Re: Death Valley Jim - current status?

This case seems to drag on and on. If a plea agreement was reached I assume it could have been handled at the last status conference where the agreement was announced. It will be interesting if a plea agreement is actually accepted on Dec. 3 or if the case is again continued.

I wasn't able to listen to the clip either and I was logged in to my Flickr account. I got a message that the clip is private.

The Spring/Summer 2017 edition of Desert Oracle reported on strange radio signals originating from different locations deep in the desert. But the signals were found on the AM band so not sure if it is the same thing you picked up. Here are a few of the signals mentioned in the article... "4089 - A ...

Re: A few beginner's question

Probably too late to suggest that the first trip be postponed to the cooler months. I hope he checks back in as I'd like to know if he survives.

Re: Can't access new PM's

Hi Candace, One of those PMs might have mine that I sent a while back on Alice Springs. On my end it now looks like it went through. If it is lost let me know and I will resend it.
