My hat's off to you. Think you are the ENVY of everybody here on Summitpost. You would love Arizona; we have a VAST desert, here. It's not as much sand as it is DESOLATION. Take care & good luck!
Just looking at this photo makes me THIRSTY!
Yes, I travel a lot. As soon as I have some ash I tend to take off for some interesting area.
I was really thirsty :-)
