This is FRR, and I am currently in Death Valley where I work as a park volunteer. I will have limited access to any high-tech communications, e.g. internet and cell phone. I will try to check periodically, but will have to depend on other DV enthusiasts here like Tet, Jes, JimG, and others to reply promptly.
When time allows, I'll tell you more about what's been going on here.
Enjoy the next few days wherever you are, and I will be here whenever I can.
