That's exactly right, Kathy. Thanks for posting the maps. I still need to learn how to post pics and files on here.

....just in case anyone was planning on getting gas there- I read on the "morning report" that there is none there as of now.

One more thing.... if by chance someone else is camping at our camp area, I will leave a note at the top of the post at Teakettle Junction stating where we are. Leave the note for others in our party, I will retreive it before we leave. If we can't all connect for some reason, we can always meet at the Ubehebe Mine Saturday morning at around 8 a.m. for the Corridor hike.

Okay, I lied, one MORE thing. I will set walkie-talkies at 10/10 and will check periodically Friday and Friday evening.
The gas thing above wasn't very clear- it's in the subject line- but it's no gas at SCotty's Castle. Everywhere else okay.

Ridgeline- The note will only be there if we change camps. It's not the greatest of camp areas, more as a meeting place, so we'll look around. If you guys did show up, what time(approx) would you be arriving? Friday night or Saturday moring? Not bringing the Ranger, will be in green Tacoma. I'll keep the walkies on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, at least.
Tom- When are you coming up? I think I might go in over Hunter also. Looks like it will cut alot of mileage out.
I'm outta here this morning- cooked up some turkey last night and will have my first Thanksgiving in DV. Kewl.
Bring wood if you can remember.
Yahoooooooooooooooo!

Tom - I'm leaving today, hopefully before noon. Our stuff will be at camp, unless note changes camp, even if we aren't. I will be out doing stuff, (maybe Perdido Canyon, maybe White Top peak, maybe Leaning Rock peak) as much as possible in that general area. Will try leave at least one vehicle there, at the very least a tent (yellow) and table(blue). I'll turen on walkie Friday morning . Hope I have enough batteries with me!! : )
