These are the Red and White Mountains. There were no other people within hundreds of km's of us. One of our friends, Streeter, said that he had never been so 'far away' from anything in his life.

This is the gang: the Chartrands are American (via Quebec in the 1700's) and Streeter. His mom is American (via Holland). He claims that his name is a Dutch word, but he doesn't know what it means. We're just impressed that they wanted to go on holiday with kids: out of 36 hours, we spent 12 bouncing through the desert, covered in sand and dust. Maybe they'll never do it again.

We fouled the carburetor with dust (causing a significant delay) and there was sand in our ears, eyes, and hair for a few days.
