[cdt-l] Water ALERT



Thanks, Sly. I forgot about the visitor center as a probable water source.
Is it on the outside or inside of the facility?

Hey, I've got a heap of additional info re: the CDTS route in NM between the
border and Cuba. Will post this to the web when I get a chance. In the
meantime if anyone needs additional water updates (current as of April/May
'03), feel free to ask.
