Hey guys and gals, how about posting whatever pictures you all have from your time in the desert for the rest of us to see.
It doesn't matter if they are already posted elsewhere on this forum, I'd like to get a repository of images located in one spot.

I figure this might also interest anyone stopping to visit to see what we are about and it might strike up some memories
therefore causing them to want to get involved.

Hopefully Troutster will be able to do that mass email thing to the previously registered users and drum up some old posters
and get them to return.

Thats it for now. I might add a few more later.

Oh, it was that ole "May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crotch" curse thing that was going around, I had a flea collar in each pocket, I used one on each pant leg as a boot strap and had one stuffed in my pants just to be safe.

Yeah, I kept them tucked in my pantlegs, too. Now, I saw somewhere that they (whoever "they" are...) blame Gulf War Syndrome on flea collars. :roll:
