Virtual Trip to:
Dec 8-10, 1999
As determined as I was, I headed out the very next day in GLADYS
to the Big Caliente Hot springs. From this sign they were 17 miles on a dirt
This was the last guy who tried to make it there.
Those seventeen miles took me close to 1 hour and 45 minutes
to travel. It was slow, steep, bumpy , mountaineous roads.
I finally arrived to find this welcoming sign.
Getting lost at Gilbratar's Mine may have been a blessing, because if I had made it the 20 remaining miles to these hot springs I would have probably went through anyway and would have perhaps ened up with a hefty fine.
That damn map said they were open all year round.
I wish there was some morale to this story.
If you have a morale to this story email it to us.
Below are some of the suggested morals I have received:.
Morale # 1 sent by Dave Glass
Searching for adventure and whatever you may find,
May bring you to the Hot Spings or some abandoned mine.
Somewhere deep inside, a little Homer Epic is what you had in mind.

hi freaky bro',...your recent adventure brought back good memories for me of being 'out there' scouting for 'cool' hot springs, too...after all that adventure, however, i was amazed you didn't 'hop the fence' and 'go that last mile' to get to the springs...our loss of course, as the cool pictures you took were putting us right there with you...so maybe we'll get to see your saline-hot springs new millenium adventure soon...thanx...p.s.;have your cyberbuss? ...i have one in my motor-home...it's easier than you might think... also, when you're camping out by those hot springs, you can use the hot water to heat the tank !!!

Morale #7 sent in by da Buss Buddha
"A man these days get from one place to another very quickly. But meaning of these movements is very slow."
I just learned the official reason those hotsprings were closed.
Too bad I left the laptop and satphone at home.
Sometimes the Internet is the only feasible way to find out these things.
