Default I'm oriented now.

OK, I think I'm oriented now. The small dry lake at 1:20 is Coyote Lake. The large dry lake at 1:40 is Alvord Desert. Just beyond that dry lake on the left is Whitehorse Valley [OG53] near the town of Andrews, but you can't see it in that video. Ten miles South of that airport is El Rancho [OR09], not far from Alvord Lake, but you can't see that one in the video either. My actual track was a little North of the blue line in this ForeFlight screen shot. I recall that I passed directly over the Rome VOR and airport.

It looks like 2017 is scheduled for Aug 19-20. However, the solar eclipse is the 21st or that weekend, which may conflict with people's plans.

Think I've heard among the FATPNW crowd that it's supposed to be a full moon that weekend, as well. Hence why the official camp out was moved to Quillayute (KUIL) this weekend, instead.
