    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards. Therefore, the time has come to move DVTalk to a more modern, better equipped campsite. All visitors wishing to post must register.

Pretty sure. I suppose it could have been fragrant sumac or boxelder if those grow there, but it was all shiny and red.

Very interesting and informative, thanks for sharing this. One thing about your pictures, you have a picture of the workshop you said is full of poison oak. I have never seen poison oak growing anywhere east of the sierras and I have spent all of my adult life there. Somebody might have planted it one way or the other but I find that very curious. Are you sure it was poison oak?

The Golden Gate Stamp Mill is a great place, highly recommended if you ever find yourself between Bridgeport and Carson City,

Here's one from absolutely the opposite end of the state: Petroglyph Point at Lava Beds NM. Just did a long weekend in Owens Valley followed by driving 395 to Lava Beds and Crater Lake to Portland. Long drive, got to check out some cool stuff. I'll write proper reports as I get to them. Enjoy:

Thanks for sharing the link! Some nice pictures. I also spied an XJ in one of the photos - great rigs, and I enjoy mine very much.

I haven't written a post in a long time, but from here on when I post something related to the great desert we enjoy, I'll be sure to post it here!
