I'm all packed with my Saturday night appetizers, digging tools, etc. and hitting the road by 2 tomorrow. I am very excited to meet you all and hope there will still be a spot for me!

Update: at wiley well, we have sites 2 through 7 on the south loop. A couple still available on the north loop. After that, overflow may have to go to coon hollow campground, or we can ask the campground host about sharing sites. Regardless, permits will need to be obtained at the coon hollow campground, site 6, as the campground host here at Wiley well has left for the season.

Finally, roads are all a bit worse than historically, so go real slow on the washboard road coming in!

We had a blast! And have a bag of geodes to open .

We got in about 02:30 this morning; we spent a few hours going through Joshua Tree National Park on the way home. Had a great time - well worth the 1250 mile long weekend. Webspinner is downloading pictures now...

A big shout out to Peter and Marie for pulling this together!

It was a wonderful experience. We arrived when the Wiley Well campground was nearly full. By Friday night, we had squeezed another three or four later arriving trailers into the spacious areas between the sites so that we were all together. Dogs, kids and adults all had a good time. Somehow, I only ended up with pictures of the southernmost 5 trailers. I think there were 10 in all.

The weather cooperated with clear, breezy warm days and starlit and moonlit nights. Wildflowers were blooming, birds and lizards were singing and skittering. Oh, and we got to put our four wheel drive vehicles through their paces on our way to the dig site.

Wow! Love that you got Peter with his wheels off the ground.

The one of the Pickle under the stars is stunning Barbie.

In addition to enjoying the desert sights and sounds, meeting and greeting fellow Airstreamers and future Airstreamers and driving through dusty washes, we also did some digging.

On our way home, we drove through Joshua Tree National Park where the ocotillo were in full bloom, much to the pleasure of a local hummingbird. Thanks, everyone, for making this such a warm and memorable trip.

Thank you for sharing the pictures and video. Most importantly, thank you for adding to the enduring mental album of unforgettable experiences. Gabe may not be fortunate enough to have a trust fund in the future, however I hope he finds the time we spend together, with old friends and new friends -- priceless.

What a fun time! Exhausting, but fun

Thanks to Peter and Marie for the excellent hosting! We would have never found the Geodes without their guidance.

It was a beautiful time of the year to visit the desert. The cacti were starting to bloom, and the weather was beautiful.

We saw very little wild life except for some lizards and a huge wake of Buzzards that flew over Friday afternoon.
