It's in Mojave. That's like 6 hours from Berkeley. 5 or so from Santa Cruz. I _desperately_ want to go.
I'm inviting anyone who wants to go along. I'd like some help with gas. Possibly help with driving.
Recommended gear: Water. Lots of. Tons of. Gallons upon gallons. It _is_ the desert after all.
All the luck you can spare for the guy in the craft and weather conditions.
I have lots of work to do. I'm going to punch through it all, beg, and plead to go. I think I'll be able to do it.
