thanks Alan -- it's the only way I can survive here -- walking off-trail alone 
(though I do take friends about half the time -- to introduce them to the land 
in the West)... though the presence of the military *is* ubiquitous out here - 
in the sky, on the land, argh... Gen. Patton brought 1 million men out into the 
Mojave desert with tanks, planes, jeeps, and so on preparing for the North 
Afrika campaign (Much of the Mojave Desert is now a 'pristine' conservation 
area, but when you know what a tank can do to the desert soil surface, you can 
see the damage everywhere...)
