Hi guys, I know I sure have been a back-slider around here and the other desert forums. For me it’s been trips and work, with any free time spent with truck mods. I’ve been getting some extra traveling in this year. :lol: :cool: DV and Salton sink is some of my favorite places during mid summer, but...

As far as Steve's comments/questions go: I try and reply to each as posted. That way maybe easier for future researched to follow along. >Yes … 3days, …. another if it turns out to be heavy going. 3 to 4 days would be a lot faster than I try to travel on vacation, but doable.

Wow. :neutral: Your right that’s a essay, and an ambitious undertaking. I’ve been thru all those areas, and I’d guess I been on 90% of the dirt roads, and 100% of the paved roads in those connecting areas. From what I read, I see 3 days for your plan, is that correct? What is your goal(s) for this r...

Wow I missed this report, THANKS for bringing it back to the top. Thanks Steve for the write-up and pics. I have one Q, is there any bad hikes near Juneau? :lol: Ha Ha IMHO anything 200 feet past the Cruise Ship bus stops is worth seeing around Juneau. Of course the are many great things to see at t...

Thanks for sharing and photo link. I grew up along the Mendocino coast, so waterfalls in the Northwest don’t hold the appeal I get from a capricious desert waterfall. Of course the fall you posted is neat to me the way it falls on the beach (sand). .... strenuous depending on where you're starting f...

There was some talk about the towns decline along with it football team members, and it’s future prospects being a one industry ...

Goldstone, CA townsite

Early in Sept I was out near Goldstone and the town site is completely fenced in now and can not be approached to within about 10 miles. I went out to the site of Goldstone earlier this year and during this visit I was contacted by the Military Police and told that this area is now closed to non-aut...

Last week I drove over the Delamar Mtns on Bishop Riggs Rd, between Kane Springs road and the Pole line rd (I think it’s called Pole line, it’s the one that ends a...

Ahh, you can safely ignore/..... OK that worked. ;-) I couldn’t see any picture with the written story, but since I’ve been to these places I could see them just fine in my eye. Of course things like the bus causing problems in Zion I had to replace ‘bus’ with ‘RV’. The panoramas loaded fine, and a...
