I’ve been getting an unusually large amount of blog views over the past few days, so I thought I better post an update about the upcoming announcement. My best estimate is that the announcement will be made sometime on Tuesday January 7. The announcement is indeed for something very special that Kauri and I have found in Death Valley. After the announcement, we both will be releasing simultaneous trip reports on the finding within the week, perhaps as early as Thursday January 9. Check back soon.
