Paige, I see that one of those meetings will be in Phoenix. Will this meeting be covering planned action for California lands? I'll be there either way, but I wanted a heads up about what will be discussed.

Also, check with Kreg about a PM I sent last week. Let me know if you're interested.

Happy motoring, Tim

Tim,

I think that it is for the Imperial Sand Dunes, but since the system itself goes into AZ and many people come from AZ to Glamis that they are including them in the RAMP. I will find out for sure and let you know - I'm glad that you'll be there!
