Was at Palm Springs Wednesday through Sunday.  Very windy, again, late Thursday through Saturday morning; and yes, toilet paper is in dire need in the cr... er outhouse.

I spent two days in Palm Springs last Sunday and Monday and was driven out by the very high winds with every one else that was there. The toilet storage had more than enough bleach, but no toilet paper. I had to go down to the lower springs to get a couple of rolls for the palm springs. Also, the lower springs was very low on paper. Every thing else at the palm springs were up to par.

I will bring a few brooms, and make sure the bristles are strong... None of those whimpy bristles! Will bring some spray bottles as well. I believe my co-travelers will be bringing bleach foamers, and between our (small) group, we will have bleach with us as well. We will be there Friday, so if you think of anything else let us know.
This will be our 2nd time there, and we absolutely appreciate the awesome care that goes into the upkeep of this amazing little oasis in the desert!

Thank you!!

Good on sanitizers at the Lower Springs. I refilled all today. Each TP has a full costco size bottle + smaller ones.
Man's pooper could use 1-2 foamers. There are some there but their sprayers are broken.

The springs were down to the last spray bottle. More are needed for sure.

I think current bleach supply is not enough to last through summer.

The ladies's pooper could use a new broom. Synthetic bristles do work better but some brooms have really small bristles at the end of thick bristles. Those do not work well. At this point any broom will be better than what's in there.

Thank you for your donations. Please date them to ensure some sort of a rotation.

We are coming this weekend also. Would appreciate a quick update if available, otherwise will bring foamers and hand sanitizer.

I would think synthetic bristles would be better. [smile]

Maybe we will see you up there!

Will be heading there this weekend... I can bring the broom if still needed. Would natural bristle or synthetic be better? Also, are spray bottles still needed?
Since last request post, is there an updated list of needed supplies?

Thanks!

I brought some bleach foamers in this weekend, looks like others did as well, this can be taken off the list. Half-ish full bottles of sanitizer in each of the double holer, still needed. TP getting low but not dire. Left some wood, pile is looking better, no community fires this past weekend.

Upper springs has sanitizer but will need more. It has enough bleach. Some of it is probably outdated. The crapper is gonna need to be pumped before pres. day.

People here will tell you that they had been drinking water from the source for years. You just need to know where to get it with the least of lead in valves. But the sources are open and exposed, so you will be drinking everything the wind blows - dust, pollen, ashes, crap etc etc etc.
I always bring enough beer to quench my thirst. I also bring a Katadyn filter and Steripen just in case I need more water than I brought. I suppose you can also boil the water.
