I'm preparing to head of to Taft for a long survey project. On the downside, I'll be away from home for an extended period of time in a town formerly known as, and I am not making this up, Moron.
On the upside, I will be dealing with the Buena Vista Lake Bed, one of the western pluvial lakes that contain some of the oldest sites known in the Americas. So, that's pretty cool.
While looking over site records for the area, I came across this lovely quote:
"Site Description: Remains of subterranean structure, possibly the cesspools"
Yeah, this is going to be a fun job.
