LJ and jumped on the bikes and drove the 20 miles out to the Oasis just outside Hot Springs. Barren except for this spot that straddles the San Andreas Fault. That is why there is water in the desert. The water oozes up through the fault.

I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
