If it's an actual gathering with Alicia and stuff. Then I want to come, too.

I'm hoping for not super-hot too. We went in late Feb last time. Looks like we are planning for a bit later. But I don't think anyone plans for us to go when it's a bazillionty degrees.

How long is this JT jaunt? I'd like to maybe take a week of vacation to come down there and spend time seeing/visiting various people and places, as I have family and non-U2 friends down there as well.

We can also go see Edge's Malibu state........not.

Hard to say, but we have a lot of time for the prep. Zabriskie point was such a delight to see in person, it was truly the highlight. Words can not describe it.

If Edge Orchestra will vouch for me, may I join you for the Joshua Tree expedition?

I know it's a 6 hour drive approx. from San Diego to the tree, so it will be a bit less from LA, and I think it took us 2 or more hours to get to Zabriskie Pt from the tree. Maybe someone will remember a bit better? The Harmony is 3 hours back heading south again from the tree (not Zabriskie Pt), so that might give you some idea.

I wasn't sure if this was just like a 2-day trip, with one overnight stay, or if we were talking about 5 days of cavorting through the desert, in which case I'd say ".... can't I just come down and hang with you guys for a few nights? maybe come down when a tribute band is playing?"

Cori, the tree and Death Valley are pretty close to Las Vegas.

Hint, hint


Also, Harmony Motel is on Facebook.

Harmony also has a 2 night stay minimum (unless they've changed their policy but I haven't checked lately), which is why a day visit to JT National Park is a nice thing to do if you want to include the Harmony in your trip. (they are just down the street from each other)

Well, I was hoping that for whatever SoCal gathering might happen if I announce a visit, that you'd be coming, too.

Sounds like we need a BAWBQ
