Dave knows Ill be there for both the "dropping", and the referb. So guys, I look forward to working with ya!
Vinch, I'll probably see ya at the Gulch with the VD guys on the 15th! I am still trying to decide on which trailer to bring,
as that determines which truck to bring.
Decisions, decisions, that's what no money and being retired does to ya!! LOL!

Thought I would share an interesting read regarding the BLM's handling (or mishandling) of things...

I too am holding another door that would work for the back door. I have several pieces of 1/4 inch plexiglass,
and at least one full sheet of 3/4 plywood for roofing. Along with some 2X6, and 2X4's,
I think when we get some "period Lumber" from the old coops, we will have some materials for a start on renovation of the place.
My great hope is like Dave has said, that when someplace is maintained to some degree, folks will leave it alone, and respect the historical nature.

Now...If folks would also respect and not vandalize some of the "dugouts" up in Bonanza Gulch, and take pictures,
and only leave foot prints at some of our heritage that is being lost. I guess I am sounding like a "tree hugger",
But that is not my intent. I want to see folks respect and treasure our history, and our heritage. Fencing or blocking access
does not make something valuable. Seeing it for it's historical place, and imagining WHAT it took for people to survive out there is.

I also would love to go back and look for some minerals that used to be open for prospecting, and collection.







AND OF COURSE THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE!!

Can anyone recommend a book on this area with points of interest? I have been to all the National Parks/Monuments in the desert many times, but never really explored all the BLM land. This thread definitely has me interested.

Bananaslug;
Check out the book, "Here roamed the Antelope", a publication of the Kern-Antelope Historical Society", and compiled by Glen A Settle.
Add the "Friends of Jawbone Off Road Vehicle" map, available at the Jawbone Station along Hwy 14, near Red Rock Cyn State Park.

Then then check "Secret Places in The Mojave Desert" , I and II, by "Death Valley Jim", available online. Checkout also the story about "Ricardo" the stage and auto stop, that later became the Red Rock State Park. Then the story about how Goler found, and lost a gold strike in the Goler Gulch/Goler Heights area. The story of "Burro Schmidt", who dug all the way through the mountain, and of the whole Rand Valley Mining District. In fact, the Rand Valley/El Paso Mtns, were the second largest gold and silver strike area in California, as well as many other minerals have been taken from here.

Just remember....leave what you find as you find it, tread softly on desert soil, scatter your fire rings, and pack it in-pack it out..even your food waste, and TP.
