Hi,

Where’s the meeting point? And which DO radio channel are we using?

Also, I won’t have a flag tomorrow (I have the mount though). Do you have an extra flag?

Thanks,
Wael

I want to register here the enjoyment I had today with this group. Today was my very first time in the desert and I was very happy. Thanks everyone for the patience with a completely newbie here, and specially the Marshalls who assisted me.
