I'm still playing around with plumbing fittings as I've been unable to make the quick connects work. I'll have to put the project on hold for a few weeks as we're heading out on a trip to Japan (keeping my fingers crossed for the tour at Yoshiwara to work out). In other news, as I tossed out a few pages back, a small group of us (@TexAZ, @TRD Burglar, @Markuson, @ethernectar) are planning on traversing the Mojave National Preserve from East to West at the end of December between Christmas and New Years. We have a lot of ground to cover over a few days (planning on departing the morning 28th and heading back to civilization on the 31st) so we're trying to keep the group size manageable. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you're interested joining though there are a few basic requirements: ham radio (either a license or willingness to just listen and not transmit unless it's an emergency), comfort with dispersed camping over multiple days without leaving a trace (everything packed in and out), and ability to join the entire trip. Stock vehicles would be fine on this Mojave Road.
