Per, I have sent my email.
I am saddened this will be the last as this get together has always been fun and informative.
I have attended the last 4 years and I look forward to this each year.
Maybe I will bring my old 12x20 Korona this time if I have the energy.
Heck, maybe this is a good time for the big cameras to come out of hiding so all can see.
I know Jim Fitzgerald has his share of ULFs.
No matter what camera you have lets make this one for the books.
A few things to remember about Joshua Tree. It is a desert and can be dangerous.
Bring plenty of water, warm clothes, clothes for when it turns warm.
Maps of the area so you don't get lost. Money for park entrance fee and money for camp site fee if you are camping.
Read up on it at the Joshua Tree NP website. http://www.nps.gov/jotr/
