Polka, we are planning a trip to potosi mine on Sunday, but if you want to roll solo, there's a lot of postings by "youstupidbunny" about goodsprings area with gps coordinates. Hope we don't come across the guys with AKs that you mentioned. By the time we would see them, it might be too late.
The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
