On to the Gila Forest
On Saturday I took Kevin Burnette, our National Geographic Videographer, to the airport in El Paso. We will miss him so. Luckily he will rejoin us towards the end of the trek.

Then on the way back to Lake Valley I stopped in Las Cruces to the Wal-Mart. Shopping for food to feed 12-15 people is a real chore! But I treated my team and our sweet hosts, Shelby and Wilma, to a spaghetti dinner. It was excellent, if I do say so myself.

Pancakes and eggs and sausages this morning stoked the furnaces as we sent the trekkers on their next leg of the journey, finishing up the 5 miles overland (actually over ravines, puckerbrush, and no-mans-land) and then for a 3 day backpacking trek up through the Gila national Forest. Most of the support team will be joining the trekkers as they backpack, leaving Ron, Bob, Amanda (our Computer Goddess) and me alone for three days. Finally I will get a chance to catch up on my email!
