    Hi,

    I’m in California’s Victor Valley area and wondering who is in my area to bounce questions off in the future. Thank you.

    Many desert dwelling southern Californians here, but there is a lot of good advice from tortoise keepers elsewhere in the country too. You can pick and choose who you'd prefer to bounce questions off of, but you can also ask the group and get even more info.

    Bounce away. There are many of us desert tortoise keepers here and probably some of us in a similar climate to yours.

    Awesome...did you watch the History Chan tribute to the three oops attempts Evel did not land the other night? I actually watched all three hours of the tribute...but had to account that the guy the other night had bikes with modern day tech vs the heavy Harleys that Evel had at his use...but it was still good.

    No I haven’t seen that yet.
    Evel’s bikes had real hard suspensions not like today’s bikes.
