LOTS of wiring, dual battery setup, Solar charging system, with some random lights spread around here and there.
    So for those that are interested I might try to make a run to Medano Pass in Great Sand Dunes again soon. Lots of water crossings :D I'll gladly lead but when we were there a month or so ago the gates were closed because of some serious water runoff. I'll try to figure out some dates and let you all know. But it was pretty amazing when we were up there.

    Here is the info....Medano Pass

    Unfortunately I'm on graveyards Fri, Sat, Sun nights of that weekend (10/11-10/13).

    I work a really strange schedule, but I'm off for four weekends in a row out of every six. One of the four weekends I'm on call, but I rarely get called in to work.

    No need to rearrange the whole thing because of my wacky schedule. I'll make it out with you guys sooner or later. There's still lots of places to explore.

    I'm already thinking of a Thanksgiving weekend meet. Would like to do something up north or maybe head out to the 4 Corners area. Thoughts?
