So I have some new found freedom, a lot of it unfortunately (Fortunately) Next week, August 6th-11th-ish I'm thinking of heading down to the Alvord Desert and Steens to do a little exploring. I've never been there, I've read the ride reports, and I've got a benchmark map. I'm open to whatever. Anyone want to join me? For those that think I'm crazy, yes, I am aware that it is the middle of the summer and its a desert.
