Nice! One of the best things about spending long stretches of uninterrupted time at a rarely visited place: seeing lots of wildlife tracks & visitors.



\"Probably the airplanes will bring week-enders from Los Angeles before long, and the beautiful poor bedraggled old town will bloom with a Floridian ugliness.\" (John Steinbeck, 1940, discussing the future of La Paz, BCS, Mexico)

I just asked him, will report his reply.
I am going to guess it was from the bends based on his decompression chamber mention? Maybe it wasn't operated correctly or they got it only after so many deaths?
