Spring Reports?
« on: October 23, 2011, 02:10:28 PM »
Leaving Nov. 1 and will summit elephant tusk on the 3rd.  Anyone know of any spring reports for anywhere on the desert floor?  Thanks for the help. Drifter
If you climb mountains, no explanation is necessary, if you don't , no explanation is possible.

Hey Drifter,
how was the climb of ET?  Water report?  Any thing else you discovered besides needing new boots?

temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water
