The goal for this brief camping trip was to dust off the gear and finally do my first overnighter of the year, plus hopefully get to meet some of the folks from the Arizona Wilderness Coalition who were there for a Meetup event. I am not a member, but specifically wanted to meet Jonathan from Portal to see if he had any new information on the woman who went missing at Rustler Park in 2015. When I arrived at the campground late Friday afternoon there was only one other camper, so I picked a spot to my liking, then headed off to do some photography before it got dark.

Back at camp, I set up the tent while I still had some light, then relaxed in the dark enjoying some brews and watching the sky for signs of storm development. There was some lightning off to the northwest, but nothing was happening nearby. It remained quiet the entire night. About 9:00 a car drove in and headed right up to my camp. I had two lights on, so they must be looking for someone I figured. I asked if they were with the AWC, and they said yes; they were looking for Jonathan, who was supposed to already be here. So, it turns out the other camper was who we were looking for. They headed over to set up at his spot, and I walked over, got to hang out with some new folks and talk with Jonathan as hoped. :)

I didn't camp another night like they did, nor join them on their hikes, partly because of some ongoing physical limitations, plus I wanted to get back to Tucson Saturday, so I could be home for the anticipated storm event (that turned out great :D ).
