Welcome to the backporch- Barstow Desert Dispatch readers!

May I be the first to say come on in and sit a spell out here on the backporch. You
are welcome anytime here, we’ll even get the hot joe percolating for you, or some-
thing a little stronger perhaps.

I would like to give you my bonafides to allay any concerns out your way that perhaps
I might be a carpetbagger, and not really care about the desert area. For about 5 years,
from around 2000-2005 I lived in Morongo Valley and Joshua Tree in houses I bought.
Unfortunately, financial reverses forced me to move back to the OC, where I still reside
unto this day. But my heart is still in the Mojave and probably always will, till I check out.

Here are links to previous posts about this:



Here is one of my all time favorite net videos and my post about it. I just wish I lived this
lifestyle and on a personal note, I wish I was as articulate as this gentleman is. Truly a
”must see”!

Folks, I just wanted to give you a little idea of whose site you’re visiting and to say just
how much I appreciate that you took your time to surf over to my little, obscure part of
the net. And to remind you that comments are welcomed and encouraged here, but as
the disclaimer goes, to pretend like we’re sitting out on the backporch, face to face, and
to be nice. I mention this only because of the “warm welcome” I received from one of
the folks at the DD forums.

There is quite a bit of information about the Mojave National Preserve on the blog, including this trip report of the Teutonia Peak Trail” hike I did recently, which includes
a video I took at Sunrise Rock, when the Mojave Cross, was still up. Sorry for the extreme
wind noise in the video.

One last thing while you’re here. If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of
the missing cross or who might have taken it, please let the authorities know, contact the
Mojave National Preserve @ 760-252-6120.

Thanks again for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
