[pct-l] desert hiking and big bend

I was just interested in knowing some of the basics concerning desert
hiking.  More specifically a friend and I are planning a trip to Big
Bend National Park in Texas.  I feel that I have a good deal of
experience wiin regular hiking and long distance hiking.  However,
living in the northeast puts a damper on my desert hiking experiences.
Just wondering if anybody could help me with some of the basics
(especially how much waterto bring.) I know what the survival books say
but want input from someone with direct experience.  Also, anybody who
has been to Big Bend National Park I would be interested in hearing your
experiences.  The latter question can be answered directly to my e-mail
address so as not to clog up the list.  Sincerely, David.
