Shortly after descending the drop off and entering the gulch, I perched myself atop a ridge to get a few shots of Ollie's FJ making its way through a few rocky sections. As the vehicle started to climb a boulder it suddenly died. Ollie tried starting it again but to no avail. We were suddenly stranded in the desert... :shock:

Keep smilin' Ollie...

Nice blog John. I made a long DX from a valley in wildcat canyon through the black Mtn repeater all the way out to Ollie in a box canyon in AB. Ham radio rocks. I knew it was the EFI! :mrgreen:

Wow, Blair Valley looks gorgeous! The top of Diablo looks more gnarly than usual, glad you weren't stranded out there too long and thanks for posting this (especially the pictures).

Thanks! Those HAM radios sure came in handy!

Thanks. Yeah, we were amazed at how green everything was out there.
