    Re: Sahara Tent Moving

    Looking at the aerial view you posted, the lower left rectangle is actually four polo fields. They are El Dorado 1, 2, 3, and 4 from left to right.

    100% confirmed Sahara is moving. No confirmation yet as to what, if anything, will move to its previous home. I'm guessing Sonora.

    In that case, something significant will be going up there (southwest of the Cantina). I'll be by there in the next few days. I'll see if I can find anything else out.

    My sources tell me that it will be moved significantly to the east, closer to camping on the El Dorado fields. This makes sense in that it has outgrown the bottleneck where it currently resides.
