Hey Daren,
Would love to join you guys but we are going to be up in Orange County.
Is this the Palm Grove down in Carrizo Gorge?
Please post pictures and a trip report.

Bob

This trip was a bust..my usually dependable friend bailed out at the last minute..crying about something like it was gonna be too hot...sigh...I ended up just going for a 15 mile run around the lake near my house and drank some beer instead.

Heehee -- You guys are like, Desert Militia -- on my best day, I wouldn't be able to keep up with any of you guys even if you were in full body casts. I need somebody wussy to join this board so we can take little day trips where we tip-toe through the tulips and whine at the first sign of a bead of sweat. I wonder if Paris Hilton or David Sedaris would be interested in being my winter hiking buddy.

On a side note, when I took my car to get smogged, I noticed something hanging down from the undercarriage of my car. I asked the guy whether it was anything scary, and he said it was just a piece of plastic that had ripped down, but nothing that was an issue to the operation of the car. I felt all butch and grizzled as I said "ah, must've happened out in the desert" -- like I was Steve Friggin' Irwin or something.

On another side note, I broke down and got cable a couple of months ago, b/c I was trapped in bed so much with my herniated disc, and my new favorite show is "Dual Survival" -- I'm preaching far and wide that people should watch it, even if they don't have any plans of getting stranded in the Peruvian desert or a Louisiana swamp -- it's just really fabulous info/entertainment for anyone even vaguely interested in nature - whether or not they're "outdoorsey." I think it's far superior to the one "Man vs. Nature" episode I caught -- though maybe I just caught it on a bad day.

It's on Discovery, so y'all should give it a try if you happen to run across it one night.

The full back episodes are available for viewing here:

http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/dual-survival/episodes/

(update: I just tried to go watch a couple I've missed, and the vids are "currently" down -- and I'm not sure they're still the full vids anymore, even when working -- when I sent the link to someone a couple of weeks ago, the vids were working AND it was for the full 45ish minutes of the show)...

That said, it might be annoying for ppl who are truly hard-core outdoorsmen...the situations in the show are admittedly contrived, but judging by a lot of press I've seen recently, most nature shows (or situations therein) are at least partially contrived -- gotta keep it exciting of teevee, after all.

Cayenne..your killing me with your stories..do you write any books? I would probably buy one if so.

As for the "reality" shows I have always thought unless the person is recording everything with a head cam or something it could not be that hard or wild if a camera crew is following them around, especially when they have to go first to a good front shot of the action.

Keep up the comments/writing, I love it.

Aw, thanks - no, no books, though my mom has spent her life torturing me to write one. Little does she know that it would be 75% snark directed at her. I've tried my hand at it, but never made it past the first chapter...at one point I had 32 different first chapters, and then I lost them all to computer death, so decided never to bother with any of it again. My mom said I should have just made a book of 32 first chapters.

Agreed on the nature show thing...I always think about the camera crews with their huge loads of equipment filming the guys who are supposedly barely able to get through five inch crevices. And then there are the times when the guys are having to eat snakes or frogs, b/c that's all they can get their hands on, and I think "yeah, like the crew isn't passing over tiramisu and rosemary braised filets once the cameras are off." Still, I try to let myself get lost in the fairy tale. They're prolly about outdoorsey as I am.
