Whazoo, thanx for the memories. The last time I was out there was with my adopted brother (God rest his soul) during the summer of '64. We jumped on a couple of old Honda 305 Scramblers from Detroit to California and return, with many stops along the way for 4 weeks. We slept out under the stars and cooked on the ground.
We had actually planned to make the ride to CA and back in two weeks, until we got to Borrego. We stayed one night, went back out and packed in a couple of days food. We later went back out and packed in several more days food and wished that we could have stayed there forever. At that time, unless we rode many miles for supplies, we saw no one else while we were out in the beauty of the wilderness.
Thanx again for the memories.

Dave: What a wonderful journey you and your better half, Mrs. Whazoo, shared with us! I'm "over the moon" about it... Once again you have firmly established yourself as the all time Poster Boy (Poster WHAZN8R?) of trip reports!
As a matter of fact, please let me strongly suggest that you submit your moon-lit (or should we say moon-struck?) truck camper photo to Truck Camper Magazine's 2012 truck calendar photo competition. I'm voting for it. Terry
not to embarass anyone(sorry Dave) but i feel compelled to share. couple of years back my wife and i had the good fortune completely by happenstance to meet dave and his better half.not only is he a great story teller but he is one of the nicest approachable guys you will ever meet with narry a hint of ego in his DNA.
Being a native Californian, I have always had a love for desert camping...and love, love love Anza Borrego. I have never been in a position to explore quite so thoroughly there as you have, so thank you for letting us tag along vicariously through your report! Love it!

Ah, Whazoo, you never disappoint. What a wonderful way to start the day. I apologize for the lateness of the response, but unfortunately ran out of battery this am right in the middle of my comments. Got to say, Dave, that I am usually not much for poetry, but the palm sonnet was really a piece of enjoyment for me. As always, many many thanks for sharing the excellent commentary, photography, prose and poetry, that never fails to please.
