As usual things have been crazy as he'll. I left Las Vegas 3 days ago headed south and have been staying near the town of needles ca. In the last 3 days I have partied on Lake Havasu in AZ for spring break, explored abandoned gold mines, played in ruins along the old route 66 and an old civil war era army fort in the desert, and rock hounded a bucket full of agates of amazing beauty. I've had excellent company who has been kind enough to take a few pictures for me, and as soon as they arrive in my email I'll post them here. With any luck I'll have a camera again soon. Mexico waits....
