Nobody knows for sure where this giant, mysterious barge, stranded in the southern Salton Sea came from. Could it be a lost Navy ship, and old fishing barge, or from the famous Captain Davis of Mullet Island?
After 14 months of mapping, scouting, and planning, the time had finally come. Weeks and days before I started my walk around Salton Sea I moved to North Shore and started the count-down. If there was going to be any shit, soon, it would be hitting the fan. Oh my God. What have I gotten myself into?
Day #1 of my walk started-off like a fork in my eyeball and before I knew it, the enormity of the next 6 days was beginning to sink in.
Day #2 of my walk around Salton Sea was the last of the ‘easy’ days, but miscalculations and mud put me behind schedule.
Day #3 – Thursday June 11, 2015. The shortest day so far turned out to be the most difficult day yet in my walk around Salton Sea.
