Golf spelled backwards is ďFLOGĒ. Coincidence? ;D

Is it that unusual for that area to get that cold. Youíre pretty far south. Or was it just the wind?
I checked and Eden Springs is only at about 2,800 ft. Slightly higher than here in Vegas.

Interesting history about the place.

Seems you have a standard method to confront persistent pressure to alter your newly implemented strategy.

I would have had the same reaction to the intrusion by the friend. As you said that there was a compulsion to air an opinion on activities in a house that they didnít live in.

Yes, boggling!

Based on Rule #2, here for this forum and since there is nothing in that article that mentions or addresses nudity. I donít see the relevance.

You might as well worry whether stock market fluctuations will have adverse effects on perceptions regarding nudity because a company that supports a moral social stance against nudity might, just might reap a benefit in a broad spectrum, robust market.

Also, I couldnít find a single link to the leaked document. Maybe I missed it. In fact all the links I did find seem to link to the same sources. A sort of circular logic. And most try to ding you for a donation. A disinterested 3rd party or even an opposition group that supports your argument would at least have gone a long way to make me think it was objective.

There is an interesting line in the paragraph regarding an article from ďThe EconomistĒ, that attempts to disprove claims about ďpolitical bias by digital platformsĒ, by saying that the bias in fact exists on search platforms. So the bias does exist, just not where it was claimed. Whatís the old saying, ďYouíre preaching to the choir!Ē

I wasted a good bit of time on this article. It's an internet version of a robo-call. I Googled ďCensor the Internet executive orderĒ and so far havenít found it. Maybe itís over the rainbow.

Itís Palm Springs! What else would you expect in such an exclusive, elitist environment.

Iíve been there, seen it and have no desire to go back. If necessary I will drive through it to get somewhere else.

The well behaved are also well coifed, well nipped and well tucked. Brrrr. Strange culture!

The downside, JohnP is that Bare Oaks is in Ontario, Canada.
Maybe they will open a branch in Ontario, California. I would go to that one.

One of my uncles was career Army. He gave my brother and me one of those old 2 pc. 2 man pup tents. That was back in the early 60ís, it was that green canvas and heavy. I remember that smell.

Iíve been camping in parts of Inyo Forest. Itís beautiful country but a bit of a drive to get there. My wife and I found a campground near the Schulman Bristlecone Grove on a road trip once and intend go back and do some hiking and camping.

The campground is at about 8,500 ft. We'll go in late spring and itíll be perfect.

Thereís nothing more annoying than discovering that youíve put your tent in a bad spot. From experience, I always lay down in the tent to make sure there are no rocks or roots lurking. Itís one reason I prefer smaller free standing tents. Just grab it and move it.

If there is a slope, sleep with your head uphill or you will wake up with a pounding headache. I check for these things before dragging all the stuff inside.

Good idea, Jbee. Northern Arizona is good. Southern Nevada is good, but letís do it in the cooler months. The heat doesnít allow any kind of extended time outdoors. I can squeeze maybe 4 hrs. if I get out early enough and that includes drive time.

Camping like Jbee does means a long trip into central and northern Nevada.

One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas.
How he got into my pajamas I'll never know.

The Red Rocks are west of here were a great place to go on a SN hike. The advertising and the popularity of it with the local resorts for use by customers, makes it unbearable.

Busses, shuttles outdoor trips all from casinos and outfitters makes it feel like a theme park. With all the traffic I smells like a carnival.

I quit hiking there a while back after a couple of close calls.

The sheer starkness of the desert is daunting and beautiful at the same time.
I donít care much for the city. You either like the desert or you donít. I love it! The desert is beautiful but it can fool you. Water is the issue. The heat is only a problem in the summer. The desert will remain minimal. Isolated. Solitary. If you are prepared, you can survive the desert. It will not cut you any slack. The place I hike is referred to as a wilderness, though I donít consider it a true wilderness. There are amenities in the area but they are not conveniences.

The beauty is in the minute detail. And to see that you have to see it repeatedly so you begin to notice the variation. You must also be observant. The minimal requirements for life to survive here are common and create the mistaken image of bleak desolation. To see the variation requires familiarity.

I havenít been out much the past year or so. I miss it. In a word, I yearn for it.

Is there cell signal out there?
No! And to expand on that, NO!
I leave the phone in the car.
Thatís one aspect of the appeal!

When you come to see Jbeeís Havarock walk, come see me here and Iíll take you out there!

One question which presents itself - how do you protect yourself from the sun?
When I was at OLT, at approx. 9000 ft. elev., I walked for 3-1/2 hrs. without any UV protection at all. Slight burn but no adverse affects. A lot of this is genetic. I havenít used any kind of lotion since I was in college and had bought into the whole suntan philosophy and thought a tan was a big deal. Things change. Tempus Fugit!

I donít use lotions or sunscreens. Too many toxins.
