Default Maze 2013

Amidst employment changes, family demands, and Government shutdowns, Caribou Sandstorm was able to secure a couple backcountry passes for the Maze area, Dollhouse camps. Knowing time was of the essence, and numbers were limited, he reached out to a few Maze veterans for a return to our heartland.

The place hasn't changed a bit since we were back there a couple years ago, which is just right.

Couple pictures...

So upset I couldn't make it. I literally thought about it all week. So envious.

Convoy'd with you guys for a bit on the drive back this afternoon. Looked like a nice adventure. Hope you had a great trip!

Sorry, I would have waved but I didn't know the secret hand signal.

This was me...

Default Dispatch: Maze November 2013

Great trip! Hard to believe we are already home and back in the routine of life..

Here are a few pics, and a few notables...

1) We ran into an older couple checking out Robbers Roost Cabin/Springs at the same time we were there. As I remember the story, she is the great granddaughter of Justinsen Flats area, the sheep herder side of the family and he is the great grandson of the cattle herder/sheriff's side that was moving in on her grand father's grazing land. Both grandfather's were shot in a dispute over the land. The outlaws protected the sheep herder side of the family, and shot his grandfather.. My facts are probably close but not perfect. But super cool we happened upon these folks at the same random time.

2) Also ran into a solo Land Rover Discovery guy, Clint, as we were leaving the Doll House. Burnt Orange Disco with black band on the side with the word "Trek" on it, CO plates. He said this was his 50th anniversary of coming into the Maze. He only looked 60 maybe..

Every good desert trip begins with a stop at the Hot Tomato!
