I'll weigh in on this:
Yes, we've mentioned BBRSP as part of a plan -- not that we have a real itinerary.
Besides Big Bend, I plan to be out wandering for up to 2 months -- 6 weeks at least. Big Bend is so far from Bend that I figured I might as well make the most of my gas $$, so I'll be visiting various points between there and here -- mostly after the BB part of the trip.
Thanks for the ideas, Foy, and others.
Very nice! Looking forward to following along. I'll be chained to my desk and monitors all of January-April, so I'll be eager to read about and see Big Bend Country. The geology down there is off the hook.
