We got off to a bit of a rocky start when a huge dust storm, followed by a downpour moved through the south-western areas of Salton Sea Friday afternoon. It never reached Basecamp, but as we were checking our drop-off points we drove right into it. It also made Saturday’s 20 mile test walk difficult as it left behind about 6 miles of mud to walk through.
After getting the motor home setup, we joined our friends of Ecomedia Compass / Save our Sea for a great dinner and live entertainment.
The plan for the day was to walk 20 miles from the Navy Base area north to Basecamp West.
